At my Brother in Laws wedding last year I had on me

the DR PSP
leatherman wave
two bandanas
6 bandaids
small flashlight
10ft of 550 cord
My little pony toy (I was in charge of the flower girls grin)

I used everything, even the duct tape and a sparklight tinder tab. When none of the guests smoke you end up being the "Man" when you can produce fire!

Sometimes the partner and the oaf are one and the same. Then what? wink

Then you bat your baby blues at him, ask to borrow his, and then shoot him with his own.

Let me give you a little tip for hands-free and shoulder-free carry: thigh-high single leg pantyhose w/o the panty part.

The very comfortable wide elastic bands can carry a multitude of stuff tucked into them if you don't wear extremely tight skirts of extremely thin fabric: folding cash, condoms, tampons, a flat lighter, Photon, lip tube of Vasoline (for firestarting -- what did you think?). You can wear the flat stuff in front, but you'll have to shift the bulkier stuff to the inside a bit.

A small handgun like a "Baby Browning"/Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket Pistol could fit okay, but it may shift a bit, so you'll probably have to wear a fuller skirt, and be prepared to shift it occasionally (discretely, of course) after dancing or walking much. (I tried it with a small Beretta, but 5" is just a bit too bulky.)

I strongly suggest going with the widest band you can find, both for comfort and "storage" room.

Why doesn't this forum have the "this thread is useless without pics" emoticon wink

In 1997 a modified Pocket Medic (I now carry an Ultralight .5) came in handy at Lisa's bachelorette party and wedding. Not only did it patched up a couple of scraped knees at the bachelorette party but a safety pin was employed in an emergency dress repair and my youngest sister had a headache at the reception.
