We truly hope you don’t have any beauty emergency on your wedding day, however the key to avoid them is to be prepared. It’s super important to have handy those items that could save the day, so before you come down to the Riviera Maya, México for your destination wedding, we would recommend you to stop by your local pharmacy and grab some of these travel size beauty essentials:
Your favorite lipstick or lip-gloss: for touch ups through out the day!
Breath mints: It sure will be nice for your first kiss as a married woman to be sweet and fresh!
Nail polish : Always ready for the ring/ bouquet picture!
Tissues: happy tears, no problema!
Hair bits and bobs: Ask your professional hair dresser to provide you with a few bobby pins and hair bands before she leaves, so you can fix and tweak your hair or even attach your wedding veil.
Comb or brush and small mirror: to keep your hair do under control.
Hair spray: with the tropics humid weather, it’s always a good idea to have some hair spray to make sure your do stays put!
And the essentials for your general beach wedding travel kit:
You might also want to bring these with you to the reception: deodorant, bug spray and sun- screen, after all you are in a tropical country having an amazing beach wedding, but lets face it it might be hot and humid, with the probability of mosquitoes and sun burns. And maybe include some first aid basics like pain reliever or aspirin and band aids.
For any wardrobe emergencies, don’t forget: Super glue (to fix any shoe, or hair accessory) , stain remover, and the sewing kit!
Also, if you are having a trash the dress (specially during the winter months), make sure you bring with you a towel, change of clothes, a thermos or a mug with hot chocolate or coffee, and a chocolate bar for the breaks in between shots, cause the water can get very cold!!!
Pass the list to one of your bridesmaids and put her in charge of the emergency kit, you guys can buy a cute make-up bag, a tote bag or a little box for these items, stash it in a safe but easy-to-access place during the ceremony and just feel relax, cause you know you are ready for almost anything!
