Wedding Day Survival Kit

Apr 13, 2011 by

Wedding ceremonies are many things; beautiful, happy, tearful, and the epitome of love. The hours leading up to a wedding are something else entirely; hectic, crazy, and frantic. The brides and bridesmaids are always running behind, something will get messed up, the best man will forget the rings, something always goes wrong. Things like that are generally unavoidable, something is going to happen, unless of course you have David Tuterra in your back pocket. That doesn’t mean you can’t be prepared for any catastrophe, though. Dutiful bridesmaids listen up, this is where you come in.

I’ve spent countless hours behind the scenes at countless weddings as a make-up artist, which has enabled me to see the things that most people forget, and the “duh” things you need to bring. Making a D.I.Y. “Wedding Survival Kit” can save the day, and save you from a stress related migraine.
