Whether you got zero sleep or all the sleep (but have been a nervous wreck since oh, 5 a.m.), there’s one thing you absolutely want to avoid on the big day and that’s puffy eyes. Stash a calming balm in your bag, or store it in the suite fridge for a refreshing icy chill and apply regularly right up until it’s time to start the 4-hour makeup process. We like Kate Sommerville’s version for its soothing goat milk ingredient, which hydrates and revitalizes tired peepers.

Stress sweat is not a good look so make sure you have a strong antiperspirant on-hand at all times. Mitchum has one of the best formulas out there (they promise not 24-hour, but 48-hour protection) in a shake and spray can, which won’t leave lines like sticks can.

If your nuptials are taking place during a hot month, or in a tropical climate, make sure you have anti-humidity spray nearby. The last thing you want is your ‘do falling flat or frizzing up.

Minty-Flavored Gloss

Chewing gum throughout the day (or on the night of) can make you gassy and look tacky in pics. Sure, you should stash a couple of mints in your brassiere, but chances are you will be applying a lip product more often than not, so kill two bridal birds with one stone and make it minty one. This VS gloss can be applied directly over your lipstick and it adds mega shine.

Most blotting papers just absorb oil, but these little guys are actually infused with translucent powder to help mattify skin without disturbing your makeup. Lifesaver.

Unless your "something old" is your shoes, you’re going to need this. Scrappy sandals are your feet’s worst enemy when they’re new, so apply a friction stick before hitting the dance floor.

SPF

If your wedding is destination, or you’re going to be outside a lot, do NOT forget about regular SPF applications. A nasty sunburn will not take to photos kindly. La Prairie’s lightweight SPF 50 version protects and treats, plus it can be worn over your regular moisturizer and other skin care products.

Makeup Remover Wipes

You can’t have enough of these laying around on your wedding day. From fixing smudges and overly applied self tanner, to wiping up impromptu champagne spills on the makeup counter — they are your best weapon of defense.
