Continuing on Sonya gratefulbride's bathroom basket post I am posting my entire list since as much as I LOVE replying to all the email requests this will be just much easier. Also the 4 poems I have.

I probably won't be including every single thing. This is compiled from like 10 lists that I saw online. But its good to have a comprehensive list, some might like certain items more than others. If you got a lot of singles coming to your wedding, condoms might be a good idea HA HA.

I will be including little cards with cab numbers (4th pic) in the bathrooms and on the bar. (click on the pic to see the bigger version)

Poem #1
Here is a basket for all of our guests,
To make sure everyone feels their best!
The hairspray will help hold your hair in place,
The bobby pins to keep your hair out of your face.
If you break a nail, don’t worry! There’s a file and some glue,
It can also fix a broken heel on a shoe!
The polish will stop that darn run in your hose,
Use the tissues to stop a runny nose!
We hope that you’ll find what you’re looking for.
Take a mint and now go hit the dance floor!

Poem #2
So happy you’re 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

Poem #3
Compliments of the newlyweds,
To help you feel your best!
Just use a little...freshen up,
And leave for other guests!

Poem #4
If your skin feels dry, your hair out of place,
Your throat is parched, or whatever the case.
We've put this together to help you along,
Now get yourself out there before the next song!

You can really get some nice porta potties..... they are just like real washrooms but portable.... its the only thing that we can really do for an outdoor wedding in my parents backyard.... there will be too many people to use the house bathroom, the septic would overflow....

This is Fantastic!  I ran out of time and did not get to do this at my wedding reception and I really wanted to.

My special day just passed and I suggest to anyone having a reception to pull this one off.  Do It!  It is such a wonderfully nice touch and the guests really appreciate it.

I made oot bags for our guests with treats and they absolutely loved them too.

Best Wishes, Everyone : )
