Emergency Kits

No big day in Ireland would be complete without a little adverse weather, and it is worth being prepared. Your emergency kit should include a pretty umbrella and heel covers so that your beautiful satin heels don’t sink into muddy ground. Tissues, baby wipes and chalk can cover up a multitude of stains on your wedding dress or shoes if a little bit of mud spatters or you get a grass stain on the bottom of your skirt. Even if the weather is dry on the day of the wedding, be wary if it has been raining in the previous few days as the ground may still be soft. Bring a few white towels to place under your dress while photos are being taken outside.  Ensure your bridesmaid has hairspray, extra hair pins and powder to hand in case it is raining or indeed if it is very warm and humid, as your hair and make-up may not stay in place.
