Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Deciding to have a Grand Teton wedding is so exciting! And planning to have an elopement is even more fun. Although you will not have as many wedding details to plan with an elopement, you will still need to have a wedding day emergency kit. This kit may look a little different than a traditional wedding’s emergency kit, but it will be just as important!

First Aid

The most important part of your emergency kit will be basic first aid. Chances are you won’t need it. It is a rare occurrence that my couples do. However, it is still necessary to bring just in case. Consider packing the following:


Antiseptic wipes


Blister pads or moleskin for preventing and treating blisters

Pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen

Antihistamines for allergic reactions or insect bites



Having an adventurous elopement in the Grand Tetons means you just might come face-to-face with a bit of wildlife! This is a massive perk to eloping in a National Park, as long as we stay safe during potential encounters. I recommend bringing bear spray, as well as insect repellant, to keep you safe and comfortable.

Freshen Up

As we hike around the National Park, you are bound to need a bit of freshening up! So this portion of your wedding day emergency kit may be the largest. Remember to add any other items that you may want to feel fresh and comfortable, but this is a great place to start!


Wet wipes

Hand sanitizer


Makeup to reapply

Hair care products

Bobby pins

Lip balm


Extra socks
