Obviously at your wedding, the comfort and happiness of your guests is a big concern! To ensure they have everything they need on the big day (or night!) without having to ask, include emergency baskets in the women’s and men’s bathrooms. In the baskets, include:
Small first aid kit
Mini bottles of mouthwash
For the women’s basket:
Small sewing kit
Doing this eliminates any stress from the bride and shows you want your guests to be cared for perfectly! You can have your bridesmaids make these cute and adorable for you, too!

The day of the “big day”, brides have a lot on their mind. After all, it’s probably going to be one of the most important days of their lives!
In order to make things easier and ensure that no page goes unturned, brides should pack their “emergency” kit ahead of time. This kit should include everything and anything the bride might need for her or her bridal party on the big day. Here are the most important things the kit should have:
- Lint roller
- Tide To Go Pen
- Aspirin/pain reliever
- Drinking straws
- Little snacks like granola bars
- Breath mints
- Sewing kit
- Earring backs
- Safety pins
- Static remover
Separate each item into categories such as: cosmetics, food/drink, miscellaneous. By category, put them into labeled Ziploc bags and place them in your bag.
This way, you have everything you might need and are prepared for any situation!

If you’re having an outdoor wedding there are certain things required that are different from an indoor wedding. In order to make your day as smooth and perfect as possible, and not to mention to have happy guests, make sure that you don’t forget any of these helpful items:
- Tablecloths made of heavier material to avoid them blowing in the wind
- Bug spray available for guests to ward off those annoying little pests
- Adequate lighting if your wedding goes into the night after the sun sets
- Have the staff ready to serve water or water bottles on a regular basis to keep everyone hydrated
- Have sunscreen available for your guests so no one gets an annoying burn!
Outdoor weddings are beautiful and stylish, so use these tips to keep it that way and ensure your guests enjoy the celebration!

One of our favorite wedding surprises is the ‘midnight snack.’ This never gets old! After dancing, drinking and more dancing, who isn’t hungry again? The late night snack is the perfect cure.

All are the perfect cure for soaking up the alcohol or replenishing the calories lost on the dance floor. Your guests will eat them up!

A hotel is the perfect spot for your vintage-inspired wedding, particularly if you’ll be tying the knot in Southern California. Hollywood has been home to some of the most celebrated celebrities of all time, and it’s still the city that is most synonymous with glamour’s golden age.
If you’re looking for a hotel with some old Hollywood history, check yourself into one of these iconic landmarks:
The Beverly Hills Hotel boasts a luminous guest list from years past (Marilyn Monroe frequently stayed in Bungalow 7, and A-listers Frank Sinatra, Liz Taylor, and John Wayne all stayed and played here).
Talk about Hollywood history! The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel was the home of the first-ever Academy Awards ceremony. Clark Gable and Carole Lombard also shared a penthouse here, and Marilyn Monroe has a suite named after her.
Located on legendary Sunset Boulevard, the Chateau Marmont is a historic cultural landmark and was once a (temporary) home to Greta Garbo.
