Your wedding day is a blend of excitement, nerves, and absolute joy. Amidst the whirlwind of emotions and events, the bridal suite becomes your haven—a place to take a breath, regroup, and prepare for the magical moments ahead. To ensure a seamless transition from preparation to celebration, here is a list of essential items every bride should consider bringing to her bridal suite.



Nourishment and Hydration

  • Food: Opt for light snacks that are easy on the stomach. Fruits, nuts, and small sandwiches can keep you energized without feeling too full. We love when our brides use local companies like Charming Fig to supply beautiful charcuterie boards, salads, and sandwiches!
  • Coffee: A modest amount can be a welcome pick-me-up, helping to sharpen focus for the day ahead. We love Peet’s Coffee and Philz Coffee (both available on DoorDash!)
  • Champagne: A flute of bubbly can help celebrate the occasion but consume in moderation to stay clear-headed. This also makes for a fun photo-op! Don’t forget the glassware!
  • Water & Liquid IV: Staying hydrated is crucial. It keeps your energy levels up and ensures your skin looks radiant.

Comfort and Relaxation

  • Comfortable clothes: Before slipping into your dress, comfortable clothing is key to staying relaxed. Choose items that do not have elastic in them as they will leave lines on your skin. It is also helpful to wear loose clothing that you do not have to slip over your head and risk messing up your hair and makeup.
  • Robes: A beautiful robe makes for great pre-wedding photos with your bridesmaids and offers comfort.
  • Slippers: Keeping your feet at ease before the walk down the aisle will help you stay relaxed and comfortable.

Mood Setting & Vibe Check

  • Portable Speaker & Music: A curated playlist can set the tone for the day and help calm any wedding jitters. Dance party anyone?!

Wardrobe Maintenance

  • Steamer: To ensure your gown is wrinkle-free, a steamer is a must. It’s the key to looking impeccably polished.
  • 3M Hooks: They are perfect for hanging your dress and bridesmaids’ attire without damage to walls.
  • Hangers: Bring personalized hangers for a special touch to your dress photos, and to keep your wedding attire in pristine condition.

Bridal Emergency Kit

This kit should include essentials such as:

  • Safety Pins
  • Sewing Kit
  • Stain Remover
  • Band-Aids
  • Hairpins / Bobby Pins
  • Deodorant
  • Lip Balm
  • Toothbrush & Toothpaste
  • Nail Plish
  • Makeup Touchup Kit
  • Advil/Tylenol


  • Phone Chargers: A charged phone is essential for coordinating last-minute details and capturing candid moments.
  • AirPods or Headphones: if you need a moment to yourself to block out the noise, these are CRUCIAL!

Bringing these items to your bridal suite will help create a stress-free environment where you can savor every second of getting ready for your big day. With all the necessities at hand, you’ll be prepared for any minor hitches and able to focus on the incredible journey you’re about to embark upon—marriage.
