Heather Quarnstrom says
Must have items for a Mother of the Bride purse: A LOT of tissues (for all the happy tears, and some extras for those other people,) assorted makeup (in case bride needs anything, and to reapply after happy tears,) mini sewing kit, duct tape (good for almost any random emergency,) and double sided fashion tape (to keep everything in the dress that’s supposed to be in the dress.)
Shout wipes, safety pins, Kleenex, lip gloss and camera
Brooke Landry says
-A generous checkbook!
-A calendar with lots of free space!
-A camera to catch all the memorable moments
-Jewelry to hand down to her daughter
I believe mints, blotting paper for oily skin, lip moisturizer, a small package of tissue, and a small bottle of lotion will do the trick.

Jen C says
Mother of the bride needs? Here is my top five: (1) Tissues (lots). (2) Handi-wipes or similar. (3) Forget needle and thread and go with a good double-stick tape meant for clothing. So much faster and you won’t need to have scissors or risk getting lipstick on someone’s clothes trying to cut with your teeth. (4) collapsible umbrella. Not just for rainy days. When it’s hot and sunny outside while you’re waiting…waiting…waiting…it’s a great way to shade yourself. (5) bottle of water. Seriously. stay hydrated!
