The Groom’s Survival kit is an essential piece of mind that your groom has everything he needs to deal with minor mishaps. The kit could double up as a thoughtful gift with a heartfelt note from his intended.
We’ve created a Bride’s Emergency Kit, which is perfect for brides-to-be and bridesmaids to have on the morning of the wedding but don’t worry Gents, we won’t be leaving you out.
Traditionally, the groom and his groomsmen stay at the couple’s home on the eve of the wedding day, with a fry up on the morning and heading to the ceremony venue in good time, so everything you could need is already at home. But there’s no harm in making sure you have all the things you would need in one place, that can easily be taken to the venue.
The Groom’s Survival kit could easily be done as a DIY but alternatively there are some done for you gift options that are just the ticket to.
