I’m not sure if there’s any way to prevent other park guests from using anything in your basket. Maybe you could put a note on it specifying it is for your wedding guests, but some people might ignore that. That would be the best option if you end up putting a basket in the bathroom, though.

Could you set up a table at the “entrance” to the reception for all these items? That way the items are easily accessible for your guests, but not all the park visitors? With a cute sign letting your guests know they can take them to the rest room to use, but to return them to the table?

I think if you put a basket in a public restroom, it would be okay to put a note on it that says something like:

“Courtesy of Jack & Jill’s wedding, If you should need anything from this basket, please be sure to keep it nice and neat for the next person too.”

I think most people (aside from maybe pre-teens and peer pressure) would respect the basket knowing it’s not a normal thing at the park. I personally wouldn’t use it at all if I wasn’t a guest, but some people might and be respectful of it. I don’t think it’s horrible if a few extra people use the basket. A sign is just a friendly reminder that it’s a privelege of sorts.

I’m not having any baskets at my wedding because we are in a hall with three other halls, so there could be up to four weddings worth of people in there.

I have a similar situation for our reception, which is at a nice city park. I’m going to have a “freshen up” station near the actual reception, with hand sanitizer and lotion, but nothing in the bathroom – I think the public would take advantage of it, because it can be a busy area. 🙁

I’m actually angry at the city who is renting the park to us, because we had to rent the pavilion with the restrooms in it to have access to real restrooms (otherwise the restrooms would be locked). However, since we’re renting it and the restrooms will be unlocked, it is now open to the public as well, who will be tracking in sand and such from the beach. 🙁

i dont think you will be able to keep strangers away from the basket… my personal decision will be not to do it… but do whatever you think is correct… the other ideas here are good

Hi Peacock, we meet again!  Knowing your location and having chatted with you about this – I agree with the idea of setting up a little “station” – See if someone you know has one of those 10 x 10 white pop-up camping canopies – You could use tulle to drape off three sides so the guests could go “inside” it to make use.
