What is in the Tilly and Teal Emergency Kit?

When it comes to wedding day, we are always prepared. Whether it be extra hairspray for flyaways, bug spray to keep the pesky gnats away, a Tide To Go pen to wipe away a stain, or even a cake topper if yours disappears, we have it in our Tilly + Teal Emergency Kit.

Our Emergency Kit is one of the most important things we bring with us on wedding day. It’s a large teal suitcase that you can’t miss and it has everything you can think of in it that you may need in an emergency or just an item that would make your life easier on wedding day. We keep our Emergency Kit well stocked and organized. Everything is organized in packing cubes that are labeled depending on the category of items inside. We have packing cubes for Beauty, Hygiene, Medicine, Utility, Floral, Fabric, and Writing Utensils. We also have other various items in the zipper pouch and larger items just in the main compartments of the suitcase.
