The fall wedding season is about to kick off, and in between all of the appointments you've made for cake tasting, meeting with DJs or bands, or getting the invitations addressed, you'll also be thinking about what kind of bridal look you want on the big day. But whether you're getting your makeup professionally done or you're going the DIY route, you'll need to bring a pack of beauty essentials that will keep your face and hair lookin' fresh all night long. 

Here's what to pack in your wedding beauty bag.

Bobbi Pins

Even if you're not wearing your hair up, these little guys are the unsung heroes of your beauty cabinet. You never know when you might need them to hold something together or keep down fly aways, or tuck down a piece that's come loose from your updo. Buy a pack and put them in your beauty bag—you won't regret it. 

Blotting Papers

Your wedding day will probably be the most photographed day of your life—and the last thing you want to encounter is oily skin. Keep a pack of blotting papers in your wedding beauty bag to prevent your skin from looking too "dewy" throughout the evening. 

A Bleach Pen

If you plan on serving red wine or dark colored drinks at your wedding, a bleach pen (such as a Tide to go pen) is more than a good idea. A white dress + a spilled Merlot= a good wedding day ruiner. Take the precautions beforehand to ensure that your dress stays and nice and clean no matter what. 

The Lipstick/Gloss You'll Be Wearing

It's your wedding day, and so it's expected that you'll be kissing quite a bit. Keep your lips looking just as fresh as they did when you first applied your lipstick. Toss your lipstick/gloss into your wedding beauty bag or have one of your bridesmaids hold onto it so you can touch up throughout the evening. 


Whether you get a blister on your foot from those bridal shoes you just had to have or you busted one too many a move on the dance floor, band-aids are always a good thing to have on hand no matter what the event.
