    They are nice and be very useful, but not required.

    I dont think its a waste (mine were pretty well picked through and I have used others myself) but no one will think less of you if you dont have them.

    I think it’s a good idea, but I’d like to follow this thread and see what other bees think.

    I think we’ll be doing them. To me, it’s part of taking care of my guests and that’s a huge priority.

    i like the idea, but am also on a budget so i decided it was something that could be skipped. i’ve only ever been to one wedding that actually had one in the ladies room, i think i might have used some smelly lotion but that was it.

    I think it’s a cute and useful idea, but we aren’t doing them. Our venue shares a bathroom with the neighboring venue (a bar that’s open every night), so they’d be used by bar patrons, too.

    I’m not doing them. The reception is only 5 hours, indoors, and most people don’t need that stuff in that time span. I think they are nice but not really that useful for my crowd. People come pretty prepared in my circle.

    We’re having the ceremony and reception at the same place so I’m planning on the bathroom baskets doubling as the emergency kit for the bridal party and guests to use.

    We made three of them (2 for each women’s bathroom and 1 for the larger men’s bathroom) and they were heavily used. I even had people come up and thank me for having stuff they considered “life savers” like advil and hair elastics. If you use the travel stuff at walmart/target and get small baskets you can get away with doing them for cheap but that being said, they’re definitely not necessary. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a wedding other than our own that had them, actually.

    I totally planned on doing them for our wedding, but time and money got in the way, and it was one of the things that got sacrificed.  I don’t think our guests noticed or cared that they were missing.  They’ve been a nice feature at weddings that I’ve been to, but not that I think of it, I can’t say that I’ve ever actually used anything from them.
