bathroom baskets

Recommended Posts

I decided I would do a little amenity basket in the bathrooms since it was going to be so cheap and I already was going to do custom hand towels.  The bathroom near my reception site is pretty bare so I felt it needed something.  And while its a public restroom, its off the beaten path from anything else so there shouldn't be anyone in there that isn't a guest.

 

I don't want to carry any "baskets" in my suitcase so i just took some old gift boxes and wrapped them in extra invitation paper and put a ribbon around it.  Not my greatest work, but hey, its gonna be thrown away.  The girls basket is a lot more full than the guys.  Here is a list of items I put in:

 

Both:

Tissue, lint roller, shout wipes, static guard, Advil, band aids, tic tacs, lotion (using hotel sample packs)

 

Girls only:

hair brush, hair spray, hair ties, bobby pins, nail file, tampons

 

The hand towels were ordered from The Knot

Our guests loved this and apparently so did some other people.  My WC had warned that the bathroom wasn't private for our event space but I figured, no big deal, there was a sign that said compliments of the bride and groom.  Well I guess people don't care and will basically take anything that isn't nailed down.  I went to the bathroom to fix my hair early on and the box was almost empty.  I had seen some brides that wrote signs about "use what you need and leave the rest for other guests" but I thought that didn't need to be explained.  Oh well - live and learn.  I'm still glad I did it.  And the guests loved the hand towels.

I've got a lot of templates uploaded under different threads (there were none involved in this one).  After my honeymoon I'm going to work on my planning thread in which I'll provide links to some of my other threads.  In the meantime, I think you can go under my profile and choose "threads started" and find them.  If there are any not on there, just PM me.

I really liked your basket. I have to say I wasn't going to do one. However I just went to a wedding and they had this and I ended up using the lotion and hair ties. So I guess I need to do one now.

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?

    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
