Although you can attend a wedding at any age, there will be a stage in your life when EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND will be filled with either an engagement party, hens, stag do or wedding. It’s inevitable. By the end of it you’ll be a wedding goer pro, but for now, be prepared and pack your handbag with these six essential items… they might just save the night.
This versatile paste can act as lip balm, makeup remover and moisturiser, and it can also help prevent blisters. Plus, if the bride expects you to well up during the ceremony but you’re just not feeling it, a little under eyes will make it look like you’ve shed a few tears.
2. Phone charger
Weddings are all about videos because without fail the photographer will not have captured the moment the boys gave the groom a wedgie or when the bride took a shot of vodka in the car before she walked down the aisle. But videos chew batteries, so pack a charger!
3. Eye drops
Want to look your best but also party til dawn? Eye drops will help you look like a disco queen when you’re really feeling like a 2am Maccas run. Alternatively, if you’ve been ugly crying at seeing your bestie walk down the aisle, eye drops can get you picture perfect for the photos.
4. Ballet flats
We all love a 10-inch heel but let’s be honest after four hours of killing it on the dance floor, your calves will need a break. Bring along a light pair of ballet flats for when your legs give way.
5. Stain removal pen
Red wine can and will happen. Act fast, use salt to soak up excess moisture then hit up a good old stain removal pen and avoid Pinot Noir disasters.
We’re not saying you’re going to ‘get lucky’ at every wedding, we’re just saying it pays to be prepared…
