Bathroom Baskets: What Should You Include?

Posted on May 09, 2018 by Allison Dupree

As a woman, we all know that horrible feeling of not having something you need when you’re in the ladies’ room at an event. Whether it’s that one tampon you know you tossed in your clutch, or the extra hair tie you now need because yours snapped, struggling to find someone with one that’s willing to part with an extra can sometimes be tough.

You definitely don’t want any of these things to happen on your wedding day, to you or to any of your guests. Many couples are opting to put baskets in the bathrooms to make sure their guests don’t need to worry if anything goes awry. Definitely make sure to have your own “emergency” kit safely tucked away for during the reception.
