Poll: Who did/is doing Bathroom Baskets

I am undecided.  This is a time permitting thing for me.   I'd say that these baskets have been at 50% of the weddings I have been to. The most upscale wedding I went to where money was no object did not have them.As a guest I think it is nice but am not sure I ever used it.

    my mom picked up a few things for the ladies and gents....nothing crazy, just a few items that may be needed and called it a day. i never went to the bathroom, so i have no clue what was in them or anything, lol.

    We had them. I think it's a nice touch. I asked my aunt/godmother to make them for me.

    I did not do them. The venue had items in the bathrooms and advised if anyone needed anything, just have someone ask at the front desk.

    We had them, I bought the supplies slowly overtime.  BOTH baskets were 98% empty by the end of the night.  Leads me to belive the little old ladies pocketed everything.  lol.

    my mom wanted to do them, even though the weddings we went to this year didn't have them...but she still wanted to do them... one wedding we went to a few years ago had one, and we actually used it....my sister's under-thing she was wearing kept falling down, so we used some of the bobby pins to affix it to her bra to keep it up all night....definately came in handy, the basket didn't have safety pins...so my mom made sure to put some safety pins in ours

    We did them (mostly because I had the time to buy the stuff and kind of had a crush on the mini lipgloss things I found at Sephora), but I think they're kind of a take or leave thing.  I don't think there is any correlation between having bathroom baskets and having a nice/upscale wedding (particularly since so many of the bathroom baskets I've seen don't have very upscale contents and are fairly generic).  I don't think I've ever actually used a bathroom basket -- I leave the house every day and go out a lot at night and usually don't have emergencies requiring gum or nail glue or extra pantyhose or whatever.  And if I do, I deal.

    Didn't do them - to me it is a waste of money - a BIG waste of money

    My mom did it and only for the womens bathroom.  I could not have been bothered doing it, but she wanted it so I told her that she had to do it.

    I guess I mentioned the upscale wedding because I don't want it viewed as "cheaping out" by not having one.  The things I worry about!

    That was the project I gave to my sister.  It was great and I actually had a few people thank me.  Go figure :-/

    We did both women's and men's bathroom baskets. I honestly don't know or remember went in them. Our florist did them for us.

    I plan on doing them, I think its a nice touch, I am keeping it on the "cheap" though, harmons has a great selection of 1 items that would be perfect.

    We're doing them (well actually my mother is). She wanted something to do and I'm running out of time. I think they come in handy for some people.

    I had actually crossed bathroom baskets off of my list but my sister said it's a MUST so now she's doing them.
