Knowing what to pack for your wedding is the topic of many a website article, blog post, and Pinterest board, so you probably have a decent idea of the wedding essentials to have in your survival kit. Breath mints? Check. Small sewing kit? Check. Safety pins? Check... and so on and so forth. But if you're a DIY couple, there are a number of other items that you want to bring with you to your wedding, because there are unique types of "emergencies" that can crop up during a DIY wedding.

The beauty of having a DIY wedding survival kit is that you're incredibly prepared for any scenario when it comes to the day of your wedding. Generally at DIY weddings, the couple and family are slightly uncertain that everything is going to go smoothly, and nothing puts everyone at ease more than seeing a jam packed emergency kit. It allows you and the people around you to relax a bit knowing you've done your due diligence anticipating the unexpected surprises that will inevitably occur.

One other important thing to know about your DIY wedding emergency kit is to keep the receipts for anything that you have to buy for it. If you don't use something, it can go right back to the store after your wedding day. The goal is to have everything on hand that you may need just in case, but not to rack up a huge expense in the process.
