Put Tums or Rolaids and Advil/Aspirin in there. They sell little rolls of the antacids, and get the little individual use packets of the headache stuff.  Cherry Pie had these in her bathroom basket and the tums came in handy for those of us who drank a lil too much of the infamous purple stuff.

Another item you might want to consider providing are the individual Shout stain remover wipes. Our wedding is outdoors in the summer, so we’ll have insect repellant wipes, too.

Best wishes on your wedding!  :o)

I would put anything a girl might need that would normally be in a purse. Since most guests will not have a purse with them (at least I never bring one, my fiance ends up with tampons or something else in his suit pocket).

 I would put, a few different scents of body spray (somehting for all ages) Not all of our aunt glenda’s like cotton candy.

Spray deoderant (make sure its hypo-alergenic)

Lotion

Mints or gum

Safety pins

pain medication

bandaids ( i once fell on the dancefloor and cut my knee open playing air guitar on my fiance’s leg)

a package or bobby pins and some ponytails (I have thick hair and I am prone to having them snap mid-boogy)

Good ol’ hairspray

Tampons or pads

a few sets of pantyhose (snags can be drags)

 

I would say you could probably get away without the hairclips and pantyhose (every wedding has that "mom" who has everything in her car) but you can never be too safe. Adding a few things like that will make it so your guest are comfortable and able to get their party on without having to go home early because of a hair emergency or a ripped pair of tights…

Good Luck and Have a Happy Wedding Day !(take out a minute alone with your new spouse to tell them you love them and reflect on the future you have just stepped into together)
