The Ultimate List of Bridal Essentials pt.1

When it comes to your wedding, there are so many things to think about. Venue. Music. Who’s invited. Who is not invited. Dress. HAIR! It is such a relief when everything lines up and has its place, until it’s the day of and you have this lingering feeling that you forgot something.

That’s where this list, the Ultimate Bridal Savour Kit, comes into play. Be prepared for anything and everything with this list, from simple makeup touch-ups to condiment packets for burns. You read that right, we’re talking mustard here. So get ready to earn your Wedding merit badge, because you are about to be very prepared.

    Dermalogica’s Multi-Active Toner spray is easy, hydrating and soothing.
