    Hi Ladies,

    I recently went to a wedding and they had a toiletry baskets full, I thought it was a lovely idea and just wanted to know if anybody else was doing this at there wedding and if they think it works well, just wondered what everyone would put in it or if anybody has any photos of what there's looked like.

    Thanks you xxx

    I am going to be doing this. We're having a church hall wedding, so I'm sprucing the place up as much as possible. I'm lucky that I work with a lot of really good beauty brands so I can get things cheaper but I will be providing my own had wash and hand cream, perfume samples, deodorant, tampons, plasters, a couple of combs, hair pins, hair spray and other bits that I pick up along these lines. I may do a simple one in the mens.

    If only life could be one long tea break

    My basket was from Store 21. Think it was £3.. I'm using the same ribbon and buttons on other stuff too so it's all matching.

    Yeah i'm putting them in the ladies in our venue. I've not seen them at a wedding myself but got the idea from someone on here a while ago. It's so annoying when you break a nail, snag tights etc that thought it'd be handy for the ladies. And our wedding is at 1pm in the same venue so it's a looong day for day guests!

    My mum was nagging about the ladies loos at our venue as she says it lets our venue down!! I was just going to buy some m0lt0n br0wn hand cream and put some flowers in their but might look into getting a little basket together, I already have baskets which i use for my christmas hampers so this should be easy enough to do.
    Where have you bought all the bits to go inside and how much has this all cost as i dont want to waste money if i dont have to.

    I was wondering about condoms, then I had a think about the single men in our party - to be honest, they're not likely to need them :-/

    I'm also putting reed diffusers in ours in the same scent that our candles will be in the church and reception room.

    I will be putting little bunches of flowers in the toilets to match the wedding bouquets but hadn't thought of anything like this... oh well, at least there is plenty time left for me to get to grips with it all! xx

    I'd love to do this kind of thing, but my venue is a massive hotel and the toilets aren't specifically for me and my guests to use! Don't just want everyone using/taking the bits i put in there for wedding guests!!

    The toilets have nice hand wash and cream in them anyway, but i love this personal touch!

    For me it's all in the detail!

    My Mum doesnt see that this is neccessary at all, but then I strongly disagree, I was at a wedding last year and i noticed that the girl sititng next to me at the table had a strap that was coming away on her dress. It was literally hanging on by a thread and it was a thich strap. I got a sewing kit from the hotel and proceeded to sew her dress for her inbetween courses!
    As i had made the cake and was taking pictures i was then known as the wonder women! lol

    I think the baskets are a lovely idea and I will having one :-)
