I don’t think anyone will miss out if you don’t do it but it’s just a nice little touch to add for the guests.  You can make them pretty inexpensively by shopping at the dollar store or the toiletry section at a place like Target, that’s what I did.  My guests LOVED ours, the women ripped theirs apart and used everything!  The men really loved theirs, too, but it’s funny, they were much more neat with theirs, lol.

We did!  I don’t know how they went over–I kept going to the secret bathroom upstairs, which didn’t have a basket.  D’oh!

i want to do them!  my friend did and i think they were a hit.  i guess for the guys…spray deodorant, a comb, and i don’t know, they don’t need much do they!  maybe hairspray?

I would put gum, TUMS (def), mints, maybe a lint roller, small bottle of cologne to keep them smelling good. I don’t know what the rules are w/guys deodorants but maybe some deod?

I’m doing one, mostly because I had most of the stuff laying around the house anyways (I use coupons a lot and always stock up when there are sales).  So far in mine I have gum, mints, hairspray, tissues, Tide To Go pen for stain removal, headache medicine, clear nail polish, tampons/pads, body spray, bandaids and mini first aid kit.  I’m sure there’s more but that’s off the top of my head.

If you do a search for emergency kit here, someone made a post with a very extensive list.

I didn’t do one.  My wedding was at an art museum and I didn’t want museum-goers to be taking the items meant for my guests.  Plus a lot of people already thought I was going overboard with my wedding.  If I had done a bathroom basket they probably would have just called me insane.

We didn’t do them.  Honestly, it was another little thing that really didn’t matter to me and I didn’t want to have to stress over.  Yes, people might notice the little things but you probably won’t.  I only went to the bathroom once that night so I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy them myself.

Maybe they’ll call us insane, or maybe they’ll call us a lifesaver when they have B.O, bad breath, or the runs!! Ha! LOL!

Im definitely going to do them for both men and women. Other ideas are tide pens, tampons in your wedding colors (tampax has green and yellow tampons which are my colors!) hand lotion, mini sewing kit, mini first aid kit. I cant wait to put them together!

Those that did them already, what did you put in them and what did your guests like the most…particularly the men?

I’ll probably do one because we are having several guests that will be driving a few hours to the wedding and I like the idea of having a few items if they feel they need to freshen up.
