The space you use as your bridal suite on your wedding day will be your command center for your big day. It’ll be a place that you and your bridesmaids can drop off their bags, use as a quiet retreat, and get ready in the morning of your big day. That’s why you want to make sure the bridal suite is stocked with necessities so that your bridesmaids don’t have to leave the wedding to hunt for toiletries or a quick snack. Wondering what you should keep in the suite? Here are the top 9 essentials you should stock in your bridal suite.
The day will be long and often couples will forget to eat on the day of their wedding. You’ll hear this from many people and just like me, you won’t believe them but take it from a gal that’s been there-it’s so true. You’ll have to make time to eat and having snacks in your suite will truly benefit all members of the bridal party. Stock the room with snacks they can easily eat and that aren’t messy.
A great playlist is a necessity on the morning of your big day so don’t forget to bring portable speakers if your bridal suite doesn’t have one. Ask your girls to email you a list of songs they’d like to hear while getting ready and compile a stellar playlist.
3. Mimosa Bar
A party isn’t a party without a little bubbly so deck your suite out with a mimosa bar. Include an array of different juices and a few bottles of champagne on ice. Let your girls mix their own pretty little cocktails.
4. Extra Chairs
If your designated bridal suite is somewhere that doesn’t have many areas for seating, ask if chairs can be moved inside. This will give you and your bridal party a space to relax before the main event.
5. Lux Robe
Slip into a silk-soft robe for beauty prep and sipping mimosas with your girls. Bonus: robes are so comfortable and can be taken off without messing up your hair and makeup. The great news is that robes are available in practically every color and patterns and are available in wide price range. From Plum Pretty Sugar to Etsy shops- you’re sure to find some gorgeous robes and great deals.
6. Ring Box
These adorable little boxes for engagement or wedding rings are quickly becoming part of the modern bride’s toolkit to store and showcase their most treasured jewels. These ring boxes will help keep your rings organized and safe. Add bonus: it’s a gorgeous heirloom accessory for those perfectly styled ring shots on the morning of the wedding.

Anyone who has checked-into a hotel knows that the number of hangers provided in the room just isn’t enough. Try to have as many hangers as possible so that you don’t have clothes everywhere by the end of the night-especially if you’re planning on doing wedding dress outfit changes or having your girls change into their dresses onsite.
8. Emergency Kit
No matter how much planning you do in preparation of your wedding, something WILL go wrong on your wedding day. Have you ever gotten ready for a night out and somehow your perfectly clean bedroom turns into a huge mess, with clothes and beauty products everywhere? Well, wedding prep can be a lot like that but this is the time you should be enjoying with your gal pals and sipping on bubbly while the experts do their work. Despite planning every little detail, inevitably some things will go wrong so the best way to prepare yourself is to put together your own bridal emergency kit!
