What makes a wedding ceremony one of the most special and memorable days of your life? Is it the beginning of a lifelong commitment to your chosen other half? Is it the gathering of all your loved ones in one place? Or is it actually because you get to realise your fairytale dreams and live a fantasy for one day. Obviously it’s the first two but the third is a pretty great perk.
Weddings are often an all day affair. Lots of eating, drinking and subsequently ... restroom visitation! It’s a nice moment when your guests walk into the bathroom to find a selection of goodies and useful items to get them through the day.
Bobby pins/Hair grips, Hairspray, Dry hair shampoo, Hair gel, Double-sided (boob) tape, Feminine hygiene products, Clear nail varnish, Nail file, Nail glue, Lash glue, Vaseline, Deodorant, Hand lotion, Mints, Tooth picks, Wet wipes, Baby powder.
Tips for the execution of a restroom basket:
High heels + lots of standing/dancing = unhappy feet. Flip flops or slippers can provide relief to allow the dancing to continue long into the late hours of the evening. The execution is up to you, personalise with a quirky sign and place these to one side of the dance floor for your guests to find.

Here’s an example checklist for you to use, add to and personalise:
