Bridal Emergency Kit As A Hen’s Night Game?

We were so thrilled last week when one of our favourite bloggers Girl With A Satchel ordered our Deluxe Bridal Emergency Kit for her sister Lizzie!

However we were even more excited when Erica posted on her blog that she was going to use it for a game at the hen’s night! Having never heard of our kits used this way before, we were most intrigued at Erica’s plans!


“My first port of call was GWAS sponsor Bridal Survival, where I purchased the Deluxe Emergency Kit ($129.95) for gifting to the bride (along with How To Live With a Man… and love it by Jennifer Warwick) and the night’s first game.

Said survival pack will also provide inspiration for an activity that will require all the girls to study the contents of the pack for a minute, then write down as many items as they can remember. Fun! Winner takes home a ‘Lissy’s Hens Night’ compilation CD (I’ve made copies for all prize winners) and some chocolate. Yay.”

We love the guessing lists Erica made using a colour scan of our postcards- what a great idea! Plus we’re rather taken with the “Little Book Of Lizzy” and CD Erica created! You can check out the other ideas Erica had for her sister’s hen’s night on her blog post here.

I wish I hadn’t worried about…

The stigma that surrounds the word “wife”

I wish I’d spent more time on…

The cake. I didn’t really bother with the look I was more worried about the taste but at the end of the day I didn’t get more than a bite anyway


The invaluable advice I received…

Don’t stress the small stuff everyone says it but its true if you worry about everything you will be in a really foul mood and later you’ll regret it


If I had to give one piece of advice to future brides it would be…

Make the most of the day you have sent so much time on it that if you don’t just enjoy yourself it would be such a waste


My ultimate Bridal Survival tip…

Make sure your wedding day attire (and I don’t just mean the dress!) is comfortable!

Thanks Emma! If you’d like to be a Bridal Survival Bride and be featured on our blog, simply contact us at our contact page here.

Bridal Survival Bride – Marni

We’re introducing a new feature on the Bridal Survival blog. We love and adore the brides that come to us through Bridal Survival and want to show you their beautiful wedding days.

We also know that every bride comes away from her wedding day with a realistic picture of the big day, so we thought we’d ask our Bridal Survival brides for some advice for brides to be!

You can see more Bridal Survival brides in our Bride Gallery and you can contact us if you’d like to be featured!

I wish I hadn’t worried about…

My shoes, I have a slight shoe addiction and spent too much time worrying about something that people could not really see!

I wish I’d spent more time on…

Taking care of my health and monitoring my stress levels

The invaluable advice I received

No matter what happens the day will be perfect, no matter how many things go wrong, as long as you and your husband are married that is all that counts and that was very true

If I had to give one piece of advice to future brides it would be…

Try not to focus too much on your wedding day, spend more time focusing on your marriage. The marriage is so much more important and I think a lot of brides forget this

My ultimate Bridal Survival tip…

Don’t forget to eat something! My morning preparations went so quickly and I was quite nervous and not really hungry, but try to eat something small so you keep your energy levels up. You will need it because it is a long day!

Thanks Marni! If you’d like to be featured as a Bridal Survival Bride, simply contact us at our contact page here.
