A lot of emphases is always placed on emergency kits for the bride, and for good reason. In the event of a ripped dress or broken heel, a sewing kit and super glue would seriously come in handy. But most people don’t talk about emergency kits for the groom, which can also come in handy! Check out some of the great items that can be placed in a Groom’s Emergency Kit and given to him before the big day.
Just like the bride needs “damage control” items in the event of rips and tears, the groom can certainly use them as well. A few things that can be included are a sewing kit for quick rip fixes, super glue, tape and/or double sided tape, safety pins, scissors, and extra buttons. With these items, the groom can quickly take care of any ensemble problems!
There has never been a more important day to look great, smell great and feel great so additional hygiene supplies can certainly come in handy. Items like toothpaste and a toothbrush, cologne, deodorant, a comb, floss, hairspray or gel, a razor and shaving cream, contact lens solution and eye drops, and breath mints are all great additions to a groom’s emergency kit.
Hopefully the groom won’t have need of any serious medical supplies on the big day, but some supplies can help deal with small problems like cuts, mosquito bites (these might happen during an outdoor wedding), etc. Pack items like Band-Aids, Neosporin, hand sanitizer, antacids, Tylenol or Advil, etc.
The groom will have a lot to do on the big day, from getting dressed to helping make sure all of the arrangements are in place and ready to go. Sometimes, this can mean that eating gets pushed to the back burner. Snacks that will help the groom keep his energy up can be helpful. Protein bars or granola bars, bottled water, crackers, and similar snacks are great items to pack in the groom’s emergency kit.
In addition to these helpful supplies, the groom may have need of other items for his emergency kit, or you may want to add in extra items if you’re offering this kit for a gift. Small bottles of alcohol are funny additions and may help calm a groom’s nerves before the ceremony, more comfortable clothing for the reception can be helpful, especially in warmer weather, extra clothing or stain remover can be helpful in case of spills, etc. Simply add in anything you feel would be beneficial.
An emergency kit for the groom can not only be a fantastic and thoughtful gift, but it may just end up coming in handy as well!
