@TraLo:  I did this for my bridesmaids, I gave it to them at the rehearsal dinner. I dont really think anyone used any of the stuff though! I did the wine glass and champagne, they did use that! Also gave them their gifts then too!

@TraLo:  I’m planning to do something similar by filling a cute cosmetic bag with things like mints and gum, bandaids, advil, tissues, an emory board, anti-bac hand sanitizer and oil blotting sheets. I also wanted to add in things they can use later like bath bombs, nail polish, scented candles, cute headbands and hair ties, etc.

@Leonard2B:  This. I have been given a couple of these before and I have never used any of it and usually put it under a charity tree at Christmas.

I would save your money. If you think you need a few supplies on hand for the day have a box of bandaids and a packed of headache/allergy tablets on hand for anyone that may need.

@j_jaye:  I agree. I mean, really, who’s going to travel to a wedding and forget to bring tampons, toothpaste and deodorant? And they won’t necessarily like the ones you pick out.

I like the sound of gifts though, especially the necklaces.

I would give it to them when they arrive so that they have more time to use it all!

@TraLo:  Maybe make it more of a ‘day of’ emergency kit – like paula1248 said i don’t think people would travel to a wedding and forget to bring essential items like a toothbrush etc. I’m giving the girls clutches to use on the day and i’ve put mini size deoderant, mini size hairspray, oil blotting papers, lip gloss, spare bobby pins, lollies, that sort of stuff will prob get used and even if it doesn’t is something they would be able to keep to use in future. You could give these at the rehearsal dinner or on the day.

@TraLo:  If you want to give them more of a chance to use it I would give it to them the day you pick them up and save everything else for the rehearsal dinner.

I’ve been given one, but I never gave out one. I never used it, I had no reason to. I wasn’t on my period and I brought my own deodorant/toothpaste/toothbrush… seems kind of silly to assume someone would forget necessities.
