Something old, something new, something borrowed, and�something from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention?� Yes, the government bureaucracy has seemingly grown so large that it is issuing a �survival guide� (their term) for weddings!
In an article seemingly better suited for a doctor�s office magazine than a government release,�the CDC begins:
As you gather your nearest and dearest to celebrate what should be a joyful time, Mother Nature, clashing personalities, and unexpected situations could easily thwart even the best laid plans.�Being in the throes of wedding season, many of us here at CDC realized that planning for a wedding isn�t that much different from planning for a disaster. Just remember:Get a Kit, Make a Plan, and Be Informed.
Read what the government has to say about the ideal wedding kit, below:
You�ve put in a lot of work leading up to this event, so the idea of a back-up emergency kit shouldn�t be too far-fetched.� The bridal kit should include extra safety pins, makeup for touchups,�maybe a few sedatives. It also wouldn�t hurt to have the essentials from a�home emergency kit�or �go-bag� by your side.� You never know when you might need to bandage up a clumsy flower girl, revive a passed out reception guest, or even evacuate.��A first aid kit, bottles of water, snacks, medications, extra cash, and important documents�are just a few of the more practical items to have handy.�[Emphasis added]
