Most wedding day survival kits are equipped with an arsenal of essential items to help brides avoid any mishaps or unexpected hiccups. Double-sided tape, bobby pins and a bevy of pills, ranging from aspirin to allergy medication, can certainly prove useful. But here are some additional products to help you get ahead of any potential stressor — whether a pesky facial breakout or an overbearing relative.

Skin feeling congested? Don’t have time for a facial? You can turn your bridal suite into a sanctuary of self care with a quick D.I.Y. treatment using Soap Cherie Facial Steam Detox. This clarifying product combines a mix of dried herbs and flowers to create a tea-like concoction when poured into hot water. To experience the purifying and softening agents of the aromatic blend, add two tablespoons to a bowl of steaming water, cover your head with a towel, and rest your head a few inches above the steaming mixture for five to seven minutes.


Have late-night planning sessions and tear-filled wedding events taken a toll on your eyes, leaving them dark or puffy? Hemp oil, which is pressed from the seeds of the hemp plant and rich in vitamins A and E, could be the solution. The Gold Q 2-in-1 Daytime and Nighttime Hemp-Infused Eye Repair, which combines hemp oil with natural ingredients, helps to create smoother under-eye skin and improve the look of dark circles and puffiness.


Fresh breath should be the least of your wedding day concerns. Mints and gum have been a longtime staple for a quick pick-me-up, or to erase the sudden onset of bad breath. Listerine Ready! Tabs provides the freshness of mouthwash in a tablet that you chew, swish and swallow just before the walk down the aisle.

$2.99; available at Target, Walgreens and Walmart
