I decided to make a Flip Flop Basket for our reception, because I was at a wedding last year and ...
As I sit here thinking about the wedding day, I really couldn't think of anything I could complain about until I remembered this.
One of my bridesmaid's mom and sister made me a beautiful wedding day survival kit as part of my wedding shower gift. So I thought I would make use of it and leave it in the bathroom for anyone who might need any of the items in it ie. guests, bridesmaids, or myself.
Well low and behold while one of my bridesmaids were in the restroom, they watched from inside a stall two girlfriends of my Husband's friends stuff their purses with all the items from in the basket. And ladies there were a lot of things, including some awesome lip glosses from bath and body! It didn't make it pass the dinner. When my girlfriend came out and told me who they were I was so shocked ... I really didn't think anyone would do that. Well the next day, a friend told me that one of my bridesmaids was in the restroom with another bridesmaid later in the night, and the same two girls were in there that stole the stuff. So my same bridesmaid (who's mom had given me the gift) was like "I can't believe someone would steal all of the stuff from the basket, like how pathetic can you be!?!? It's was meant for EVERYONE!" Apparently the two girls walked out immediately looking guilty.
So the lesson of the story is girls, if your going to provide a survival basket for guests make sure to leave a sign or poem like this (I totally forgot to make one as it was on my list minute things to do):
So happy youre here to share in our special day!!!
But should something happen to go astray,
Please help yourself to the contents within,
Hair spray (or Wet wipe), hand lotion, gum and even aspirin,
Use only what you need and leave the rest,
It may be useful to another guest.
So repair the damage that may have been done,
Then hurry on back and join the fun!!!
Compliments of the Newlyweds
