What is a Groom Emergency Kit bag?

A Groom emergency kit bag or Groom’s survival kit is a pack with some common sense items and some unusual items that the Groom or the Best Man should keep near them to help avoid some common wedding day pitfalls and emergencies.

Don’t worry, it doesn’t need to be a giant duffle bag, just a small pack with a few essentials.
