I personally bring it up to the venue. The fact that it was gone before the ceremony seems really suspicious to me.

ETA: You don’t necessarily have to accuse them. Just ask them if the bathroom attendants noticed anything. Then mention that it’s strange that it was missing before any guests even used the bathroom. It wouldn’t bother me that the stuff was gone (because like you said the guests might have used it all anyways) but it would bother me that the guests weren’t even able to use the stuff that you prepared.

🙁 So sorry that happened! That does suck, majorly, since you put so much thought and time into it! However, there’s nothing you can do about it now and I’m sure it wasn’t missed, so don’t stress too much. Just let it go and when you feel bad about it just remember all the wonderful parts of your fabulous day!

That is really strange?

There is no harm bringing it to the attention of the venue.

Was your venue open to the public, like at a hotel or country club? If so, it was very likely a stranger. If not, you’re right, it was probably a staff member. What do you have to lose by alerting management? I’d probably write something non-accusatory laying out just the facts: you put this stuff out and a family member told you it was gone before the ceremony started and most of your guests had even arrived. Then ask that they remind staff that these things are not to be taken. Leave it at that.

@lifeissurreal:  It’d be difficult to pinpoint who it was, but it can’t hurt to bring it to the venue’s attention as another person suggested and let them know it was gone before guests arrived.

And I think it’s extremely unprofessional and inappropriate for the band to be using your photo booth and eating your food before your guests were served.  I’d probably leave a negative review online about both those things.  There’s no excuse for them using your photobooth without your permission and though I have no issue with vendors having a meal to the side after all guests have been served, it’s very unprofessional for them to act as if they are guests and I’d want to warn other brides.

@floralteacup:  +1 you should include the fact that they were rude in your review.

I wouldn’t be bothered by one photo of the band, but many? And they kept taking breaks? My band took one break the whole night.

Im sorry OP that you have any bad feelings about your wedding day. I would let the venue know, not make a huge deal but make them aware. I’m sure they’d actually appreciate it, the next bride might be so kind.

I don’t think I would say anything to the venue about the bathroom baskets. You would be surprised that it just might be one of your friends or family. Some people take anything that is not nailed down. Just ask someone who works in the hotel industry.

This really sucks , sorry you have to deal with this.  I think that you should file a complaint , perhaps other brides have been submitting similar experiences , your  situation should be mentioned if only to prevent this from happening to a future bride.  

unfortunately i can relate to your situation, someone from my venue (I believe it was the assistant catering manager) stole my veil from me.  I changed into a feather fascinator after cocktail hour and gave my veil to the assistant and lead waitress (who promised me they’d wrap it in tissue and place in the box I left with my other personal items) I didn’t even realize it was missing until after we got home from our honeymoon .  Needless to say , it was long gone , both this assistant and the hotel managarm could have cared less , even more frustrating!

@lifeissurreal:  I would chalk it up as a loss and move on. Hopefully it wasn’t bottles of Coco Chanel! I probably would have assumed that I wouldn’t get the stuff back. This is soooo minor- it seems like you’re looking for something to be upset about.

The band, on the other hand, is something that would piss me off. I would absolutely leave a candid review for them.
