Wedding Survival Kit – 7 Handbag Essentials

Wedding season is well and truly upon us. There’s no denying it. This means we ladies are now faced with the dilemma of fitting our lives we carry around day to day into a significantly smaller handbag. No one wants to lug their tote bag to a wedding.  So I’ve compiled this list of my top 7 handbag essentials to get me through any wedding. I hope you find some inspiration and be sure to let me know in the comments what you like to keep in your handbag when going to a wedding.

Now, there are two key points which have to be kept in mind when packing your handbag. Firstly, due to the use of the smaller bag you’ll have to be tactical in deciding what makes the cut and what doesn’t. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, weddings are looooooooooong. As happy and joyous an occasion as they are there’s no denying that it’s quite a shift. So, you need to be prepared to last the whole day.

1. Spare Tights

Being a UK resident, typically despite the sun being out it’s generally still pretty fresh. So I tend to wear tights. And as I’ll inevitably ladder them at some point in my un-ladylike attempt to pull them up a spare pair are a must.

2. Mobile Phone

No explanation necessary.

Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while all know that here at The Lady Said Yes it’s all the fun girly bits of wedding planning that we talk about and enjoy.  But at the end of the day none of that really matters if you don’t get the legal stuff sorted.  I mean, that’s why we’re here.  Because we want to legally declare our love to our partner and tell the world all about it.

I realise this post is a little more dull than usual but I promise to make it as quick and painless as possible, giving you the facts you need.

So let’s get cracking.
