Close your eyes and imagine it’s your wedding day. This is a day you’ve been waiting for for months, perhaps years, and it’s finally here. You can feel the butterflies in your stomach when you imagine walking down the aisle and locking eyes with your future spouse. But suddenly, as you’re getting your hair and makeup done, you notice your bridesmaids’ dresses need to be steamed and no one has a steamer. The photographer is going to be there in 30 minutes, and the nearest Walmart is 25 minutes away – one way! As you’re putting your earrings in, you accidentally drop the clear earring back and can’t find it anywhere.
Now, if you’re anything like me, simply reading this gives me anxiety. That’s why it is my job as your wedding planner to bring anything and everything that not only I could possibly need, but anything a family member, wedding party member, OR vendor could need. When you hire CJM for your big day, you can rest assured knowing we will have everything we need with us.
When shopping for everything to stock our kit, we first started by hitting up our local Dollar Tree and found a lot there! Whatever we couldn’t find at the dollar store, we purchased at Walmart or Amazon.
As far as organization goes, you know CJM likes to keep everything organized! So, we use this incredible rolling luggage piece that we found on Amazon to keep all of our supplies. What’s great about this specific luggage piece is not only is it split into two sections, but it also has wheels! Praise, sweet baby Jesus! This makes it super easy to travel with! We (and fellow CJM couples) love how organized our kit is with drawers that are all appropriately labeled, too!
If you’re a current CJM bride (or plan to be soon), you, your entire wedding party, and vendors will have access to all of the goodies that come in our emergency kit on the day of your wedding!
