More often then not, people gasp when they see “Just.in”, my big beautiful yellow rolling Professional MakeUp Case. Perfect as an Emergency Kit to easily tote all the fix-it tools I bring to an event…just in case.
For a very important day like a wedding, its absolutely better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it, right?!
So here are just a few items I include:
Gaffers Tape Very useful for those unruly children. 🙂 (I really loved the playfulness of this pic, thank you to jwlphotography) Gaffers Tape is most commonly used in production for taping down loose cables…a must have for events so guests do not trip, not to mention having everything clean and organized. I have it just.in case the DJ or other production vendor runs out or forgets.
Straws Make it much easier for my Bride to hydrate without messing up her lipstick. Sometimes its the small things that make a big difference – no need for the potentially time consuming retouching.
Panty Liners I know, I know…obvious for that certain punctuation. However have you ever thought of using them for the perspiring Groom? Yep, a quick removal of the adhesive strip and attach to the inside of the Groom’s shirt underarms and voila not sweaty armpits. By the way…most guys don’t know what they are by just looking, so if you’d don’t tell them, they won’t be reluctant to use. (maybe they’ll skip over this blog post) 🙂
Floral Tape This came in handy at one event where the Bride kept fluctuating her bridesmaids’ bouquet order. There were 9 then 10, then 8, then 9. I came in as Day-Of Coordinator and fortunately Just.in had Floral Tape because sure enough the bridesmaid she thought wasn’t going to be there showed up and we didn’t have enough bouquets. I quickly gave the Jr. Bridesmaid’s bouquet to the additional Maid and pulled together a small bouquet out of 2 flowers borrowed from existing bouquets and a few silk flowers/leaves from the venue foyer arrangement…all just as we were lining up for the Processional.
Tide Pen / Stain Remover Lets just say, strawberries as a snack for the 2 year old flowergirl may not be the wisest of decisions. Don’t let age fool you…had to use the same Stain Remover for a 30+ year old Bridesmaid who snacked on chocolate covered munchies just last month.
