Providing guests with a bathroom amenity basket is not only a thoughtful treat, they are also perfect for quick touchups and even those occasional pesky mishaps! Whether it be trying to clean up some runny mascara with makeup wipes (because we all know those who get emotional at weddings), or trying to fix a wardrobe malfunction with safety pins or dress tape, amenity baskets come in handy in more ways than you think! We love the idea of these baskets so much, we decided to compile a list of some of our favorite ideas to help you build your own perfect basket!
Of course, this is just a list of ideas, so don't try and include every single one of these options in your basket or else you'll be spending a lot of unnecessary time and money. Go through the list and decide which options you feel like would be best utilized at your wedding and make your decisions from there! For example, sunscreen and bug spray may be wonderful additions if you are having an outdoor wedding in the spring or summer, but may not be utilized for other places and/or times of the year. Also, be mindful that if kids will be attending your wedding, you may want to refrain from including some of the first aid options or any sharp objects like tweezers or scissors.
The easiest way to compile these baskets is to either start collecting supplies months before the wedding, or giving the list to a bridesmaid or family member and asking for their help gathering what you're looking for! Consider purchasing value brand items to save a little extra money during your shopping as well!
When it comes to selecting your basket, choose one that you feel best matches the decor for your wedding. Craft and hobby stores are excellent places to look for baskets and boxes because they have many styles to choose from, plus they go on sale often! Another fun addition is including a sign for your baskets! You can find numerous designs and templates on websites like Etsy, like the ones pictured below. You can also choose to just purchase the PDF version of the signs, print them out, and stick them into a frame at home!
