emergency “getting ready” kit

With Shan’s wedding only 3 days away (can that be possible) all of the last minute prep is in high gear.  Things that are often forgotten leading up to the wedding can cause immediate stress the day of – especially when the bride is getting ready and nerves may be on edge.  A caddy full of “all items a girls may need while primping” is essential.  It will fend off any freak out moments so the bride and her maids can enjoy getting ready (while sipping mimosas, those help too).
