by Lauren J Sharkey

Like a boy scout, a good Maid of Honor is always prepared for anything on the big day!  And while we have a list of things you might need, unfortunately, we don’t have a list of all the things that may go wrong lol.

1. “Call Anyone But the Bride” Cards ($12.00 from PrimroseAndPark)

No matter what the crisis, one thing is certain – you don’t want to bother the bride.  Print these out for the wedding party to make sure that no one distracts the bride on her big day.

2. Wine Wipes ($8.95 from Paper Source)

If red wine is your bride’s jam, then these wipes are a must-have to keep her smile white.


3. Flip-flops or Flats

Heels may look great, but they sure do hurt after a while.  Make sure you have flip-flops, or some other form of flat shoe, on hand so that your bride can dance the night away.
