A lot of event and wedding planners tell their brides to bring a "survival kit" for the day of (or bring them one themselves) but what about the GROOM?

While the females need things such as bobby pins and safety pins, the males are more about desires than needs. Here is a list of things that the grooms can put in their survival kit for the day of...

a pair of dress socks, “to keep cold feet away” or in case socks don’t come with the tux rental.

a small bottle of alcohol, “to calm nerves”. Make sure it's small so no one gets wasted before, and buy enough for all the groomsmen to enjoy!

mints or gum, “to ensure a fresh kiss”. Can also bring a toothbrush and mouthwash for after snacking or drinking and before walking down the isle. 

mini sewing kit, "to keep things tight". You never know if something will come lose or break, such as a button, so having a mini sewing kit on hand is a perfect solution.

mini water bottles, "to ensure hydration". No one wants to be thirsty walking down the isle or dehydrated for the rest of the day/night.

snacks, "to keep from hunger". Mini bags of crackers, chips or nuts will keep a groom and his men satisfied until dinner is served.

bandages, to "cover up the boo boo". No one wants to be bleeding on their big day, so bandages are a dire thing to have in any emergency kit in case there's an accident.

pain reliever, "to ensure the head is clear." Nervous jitters can cause headaches and no bride wants their man in pain. Whether it's Tylenol, Advil or Midol, pain reliever is a necessity for the big day.
