I hit up the dolar store for all the little travel size things. I also went on line and requested samples of thing like tylenol and anti-histamines. I used mostlt that stuff and my baskets have run me $15.00 a piece. Much cheaper than 35.00. DIY is so much better and cheaper.

I can and I will! Just try to stop me!

I have some really old, traditional ladies in my family who I know where stockings in the middle of summer. Crazy, I know, but it means I will be including clear nail polish no matter what in mine.

Got married May 30th, 2009!

i don't think there will be too many stocking at the wedding. they are awful to wear in mid July, outside. They just arn't the type. The floss however is a great idea. Thank you so much

I've been planning on having them, but haven't exactly figured out what's going in them since I still have 11 months till the wedding.

Make sure you include clear nail polish for the ladies! It'll help with any stocking runs. OH! And floss, for both the men and women. Tic tacs are great for clearing bad breath but they won't get chunks of food out of anyone's teeth!

I have a note with mine that says :
"Brad and Shawna would like to thank you for sharing this very specil day with them.

This basket has been provided with your comfort in mind. For the convenience of others please take only what you need.

Thanks again!"

In my baskets I have:
Ladies: static guard, nail files, hairspray, moisturizer, baby powder, bobby pins, combs, antacids, tylenol, breth strips, tic tacs, tide to go, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, pads and tampons, deoderant wipes, tissues, bandaids, and a sewing kit.

mens: moistruizer, tissues, axe body spray, tide to go, antacids, tylenol,breth strips, tic tacs, combs, cologne samples, hair gel, hand sanitizer, sewing kit, bandaids.

If anyone can think of anything else please let me know. I skipped on the gum because garbage cans arn't readily available at the venue.

I can and I will! Just try to stop me!

What a great idea! I have never heard of this before...do you include any sort of note on it saying that its from the bride and groom? Because Im not sure that people around here would know that, and think that its just from the reception hall.

I don't know about socks-but stockings, probably would be good. Or clear nail polish for runners? Hairspray, mints, those little bottles of perfume you can get at CVS? gum, tampons, or like, little spritzers from bath and body works. I don't know what else...maybe like a spot cleaner-those little bleach tide pens?
I love these-they put a little extra nice touch of class...

That's a really good idea,
I hadn't heard of it though. I might try and do this. (I get on really well with the owner of out reception venue, so might ask them if they have anything planned already).
Have you thought about putting a few cheap pairs of black socks in it?

A bathroom basket is a basket full of things your guests might need at the wedding. It saves them leaving the wedding in case of a minor mishap. They usually include such things as sewing kits, breath mints, moisturizer, bandaids, combs, hairspray, gel, tampons, tylenol, all the little things might forget but need later. Also, I was brought up to believe that your guests are to be treated as such, you know respected. It shows them that you are thinking of their comfort and convenience.

So I am 11 days away from my wedding and am finishing off my bathroom baskets. My question to you ladies is, what are you putting in yours. I really don't want to miss anything vital so I would like some input. Thanks.
