Now I'm an anxious person, but this to me seems "unnecessary"...

Don't you want to feel your emotions? Why on earth would you turn them off on one of the most meaningful days of your life?

And wouldn't it make you drowsy?

Not sure what that is. I dunno why I am super calm and taking it with stride....
She is emotionally draining me already with shopping and getting the perfect gifts and her apartment and everything else. In a way I want it to be already, and get back to normal routine....

I’m the designated “just in case” packer for my circle. I pack a fold out toiletry kit with the following:

-Tylenol/Motrin
-Pepto/Imodium
-allergy meds
-any prescriptions you/your kids take
- tampons/pads
-Clear nail polish
-makeup remover and qtips
-lip balm
-hand cream
-small clear hair ties
-full size hair ties
-Bobby pins/French pins
-double sided hem tape
-sewing kit and thread to match brides and family’s’ gowns
-extra white, clear, or fabric covered buttons
-extra contacts and solution
-eye drops
-nail glue (yes, even if no one has glue-on nails. You’d be surprised how useful it is)
-nail scissors and a file
-tweezers
-bandaids
-spray deodorant for ladies and men (spray so multiple people can use it)
-toothbrush, toothpaste, mini mouthwash, and disposable flossers

*Most of this will overlap with what you’d take on a long trip or to the mikvah, so if you keep your travel toiletry bag loaded/you’re 90% there*



Pack a box/bag with:
-snacks
-real food or order to the hall/eat before leaving
-CLEAR OR WHITE gatorades or drinks
-a portable steamer
-a tichel/snood for you AND the kallah (in case she wants to take her hair down before heading home)
-extra socks/tights/underwear/yarmulkes for little ones
-mini marshmallows or smarties for kids who will need to be bribed through photos
-small toys/books for little ones
-Miss Mouth’s messy eater stain treater (way better than tide imo)
-extra long phone chargers
