I’ve never even heard of these… are they common? I haven’t seen one at any reception I’ve been to. Cute idea though!

@Sulli–oh gosh girl I hope your bathrooms are private.  There are so many nice gestures to do in your guests restrooms!  And I have to say, when I’ve attended weddings I’ve either used each of those things on the list, or wished i had each of those things.

@Sunshine—um, I don’t know how right he is.  I guess it depends on the men you’re inviting.  I think it’s a nice inexpensive gesture.  If it doesnt get used, you take it home with you!  No harm done.

Hi there, i would go to a doller store and stock up on some white face washers and roll them like cigars and place them in a container near soaps etc, just a touch of luxury to dry your hands after washing using fabric instead of paper. then provide a nice waste basket beloe for the used one to be put in once used. you could even wash then in a linen water first and have them smelling really nice also

i was going to post the wiki about it, but misspug beat me to the punch! =)

i did bathroom baskets and included the following for both:

  • wisp disposable toothbrushes (about four in each)
  • Wet Ones wet naps
  • facial tissue
  • Bath & Body works foam hand sanitizer
  • Mini first aid kit (included band aids, gauze, first aid ointment)
  • Q-tips
  • Lint Roller
  • Shout! wipes

And then, for girls: sanitary napkins and a small body spray (I bought the Designer Imposters’ version of Clinique’s Happy) and the guys got a small AXE body spray.

Great ideas!! Another idea — any items specific to your venue.  For example, my wedding & reception are outdoors, so I’ll include some bug spray, maybe sunscreen (altho it’s evening).  For a beachy venue maybe little sunscreen lipbalms, etc.  I’m also going to upgrading the soap, handtowels and lotion that the venue bathroom offers since it’s a super basic bathroom (has a public park vibe, wedding is in a garden).  Have fun!!

Also I would add bobby pins and some lotion. I love courtesy baskets!!
