So I am sure you have read many blog posts and articles about what to include in your wedding day emergency kit, but have you thought about an emergency kit for the Groom and Groomsmen? If not here is what his kit should look like.
Mouthwash and breath mints - the men might be smoking cigars or toasting the end of single life - whatever they are doing he will want fresh breath when he is told "you may now kiss your Bride".
Deodorant - not only will it cool everyone down if they start sweating under their jackets, but it is also great if anyone cuts themselves shaving. Most antiperspirants contain aluminum chloride that can, in addition to shrinking sweat glands, constrict blood vessels and clot a shaving nick.
Lip Balm. Smearing on a little ChapStick over a shaving nick works like a seal—plus it'll keep bigger cuts from forming unsightly scabs. It will also prevent anyone's chapped lips from becoming an issue.
Stain remover - a spot stain remover is great in case anyone spills their drink!
Hair gel and a comb - in case anyone needs to touch up their hair
Needle and dark thread for obvious reasons
Sunscreen - if you are having an outdoor ceremony I can almost guarantee the men will not think to bring or put on sunscreen - a note reminding them will save anyone from getting burnt and allow everyone to enjoy the party! (it is also a great add on for the Bride's kit)
Other kit essentials - Aspirin, bandaids, shoeshine cloth, blotting papers, safety pins.
