What to Put in Your Wedding Day Emergency Kit: Lover.ly

We’ve been planning our dream weddings since we were five years old. So it’s no surprise that we can’t get enough of Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration site that lets you search through pics of swoon-worthy gowns, bouquets, and everything else you need for the big day. Once a week, the ladies behind Lover.ly will be sharing their best tips for getting through the craziness of the season—whether you’re standing at the altar or enjoying a view of it from the audience.

If you're a VIP in an upcoming wedding, you may be charged with putting together a day-of emergency kit for the (unlikely) worst-case scenario. (Think: Red wine on the bride's gown right before the first dance, a broken heel, or shifting strapless bra.) Here's everything you need to make sure you’re 100 percent prepared:
