The key to avoiding wedding day beauty emergencies is planning ahead. And there are certain wedding day essentials no bride -- or bridesmaid, should be without.

Whether your makeup is being professionally done or DIY (do-it-yourself), there are some beauty essentials you absolutely need to maintain your wedding day beauty look. Since the wedding day is not the time to discover a new allergy, if you are wavering from the products you usually use, be sure to test-run them a few weeks before D-day.

It is important to remember that it's best to pack lightly for the big day. Therefore, you may not want to drag around your usual mid-size bag that'll ruin your chic look, so you’re going to need to downsize to a cute clutch bag. That also includes cutting down your beauty products to finds that will stow easily in your clutch for quick fixes and have formulas that last through hours of dancing.

Wondering what makes the cut? Here is everything you need to look your best  and with cute clutch so your day-of essentials can be by your side. The best part, they’re totally travel size, so you’ll be able to whiz through airport security to your honeymoon.

Bobby Pins: You’ll want these on hand for a quick fix, if your updo starts to fall. Bobby pins will also come in handy if you want to pin your hair up after a few jams on the dance floor!

Blotting Paper: Whether you have oily skin or not, it’s a good idea to have these to stay on top of shine. Natural Green tea oil absorbing blotting tissues will get rid of the oil with a few quick dabs.

Concealer/Cover Up: The weirdest things happen on wedding days. So, in the event a blemish decides to make a grand appearance, you’ll be glad you have this Vera Moore concealer liquid concealer is on hand.

Eye Drops: From the sweet tears of joy to the bright lights of the dance floor and the flashes from the camera, wedding days can be rough on your eyes. If yours start to feel dry or look red, a few drops of Rohto Ice all-in-one, multi-symptom relief cooling eye drops should do the trick.

Lip Color: Ensure lip color will last between all the kisses and sipping with Sephora Luster matte long-wear lip color orJosie Maran’s Coconut Watercolor Lip Stain & Shine infused with coconut water and argan oil to keep mouths kissably colored and soft.
