With years of event planning under my belt, I’ve learned that things can go wrong at the drop of a hat and so you just have to be prepared so that you’re ready to deal with the chaos at every turn. To help myself and my staff be more prepared, I’ve developed an “event planner survival kit” AKA my little bag of tricks, which I like to keep handy just in case things go awry.
iphone (cell phone) and charger
zip ties (cable ties)
Swiss army knife
notebook + pens
clear nail polish
bobby pins/ hair rubber band
As you can see, a lot of these items are things you can find around the house. So if you or a friend are planning your own wedding, you might want to put together one of these survival kits yourself! You can never be too prepared, that’s my motto!
