As the best man it’s your job to keep the groom cool, calm and collected - no matter what. Almost every wedding experiences a few speed bumps, so being prepared is essential. You’ll want to stock a bag with lifesaving supplies, like breath mints and brushes, to keep the man of the hour looking and feeling his best. If you’ve already broken the bank purchasing your tux and shoes, no worries, just ask the other groomsmen to chip in to the emergency supply fund.

Here’s everything you should include in the groom’s wedding day emergency kit.

Touch ups
Even after the groom has been primped and prepped he may still need a few items for touch ups. Keep everything from deodorant to cologne in your handy dandy emergency kit to save him from standing at the altar with bad breath or B.O.
