    We are not. At some point, I just had to stop doing things. I'm sure people will be able to get through the afternoon without them.

    If I were to do them, I would add:

    -Nail file
    -Clear nail polish
    -hair spray
    -Shout wipes
    -Spray deodorant
    -Safety pins
    -Bobby pins

    ETA more stuff

  • This is actually something I really did go back and forth with - I decided to do them, but keep them very minimal.  Simple baskets, pretty presentation with nice hand towels.  I replaced the toilet paper with the highest quality toilet paper I could find (nuts, right, well, it's the little things).  But as far as the inclusions in the baskets:

    Individually wrapped mints
    Toothpick sticks
    Q-Tips w holders
    Feminine Products in a discretely decorative bag

    And next to the baskets:
    Nice liquid hand soap
    Nice hand sanitizer
    Nice hand lotion

    Not enough to stock anyone's bathroom, but just to add a few little extras.

  • didnt do them. one less thing to worry about and most ppl carry something in their purses if they really need it. our bathrooms... well they are port-a-potties becasue they barn doesnt have bathroom, are flushable and have sinks with soap and everything in them. thats enough.

  • I didn't. I did end up using some extra flowers and candles I had in there and it was a nice touch.

  • We didn't do them. Turns out it was probably a good thing since there was a wedding going on in another room at the hotel and those guests were using the same bathroom therefore we would have been supplying things for 2 weddings. We also had some wedding crashers at our wedding :P
  • We will probably do it if we have time.  This was very helpful!

  • We aren't doing bathroom baskets for the same reason other girls have been mentioning.  1 less thing to worry about and most people carry what they need.

  • My mom is doing it. There's a  neighborhood community center that is always accepting unopened hygiene stuff, so it won't go to waste if unused. My purses for events like weddings can be small and I hate asking my fiance to carry stuff in his pockets. I don't think they are necessary, but it is nice to do.
  • I did one but found it SO expensive.  I had a 25% off coupon to CVS and still spent over $100.  I used this to make my basket.  There will only be one in the girls room.
