Oh no a Bridal Emergency !!!

We all hope for a perfect problem free wedding with absolutely no mishaps unless you are like my husband who made his groomsmen wear white plastic garbage bags over their tuxedos while the ate lunch prior to our wedding it is possible there might be a stain or two on somebody in your wedding party !!! In his defense he did not know better and he did not want anyone to ruin their tuxedo jackets or shirts with ketchup, mustard, anything with color ....

This is why for EVERY wedding I carry a well stocked bridal emergency kit which came in handy at a recent wedding the groom sat on a marker that was left on the seat of the limo and got black ink on the back of his white tuxedo pants !!
