If you are in the process of planning your wedding day there are certain things that you will like to know, and there are many things that you will need to know.
In my role as a wedding videographer I am lucky to attend my fair share of weddings in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford and many other counties. From speaking to couples all over the length and breath of Ireland I have picked up lots of tips about wedding planning.
Is your wedding day all about you ? broadly speaking the answer is yes but if you’ve been a guest at a wedding you’ll realize the importance of looking after your wedding guests and making it a memorable day for them also.
You’ve invited all your friends and relations to be part of the most important day of your life, so you want to make sure they have a day to remember also. Here is one way of making your guests happy on your big day
Bathroom Baskets for your Wedding Venue – what to include :
Over the past ten years there has without doubt, been an increased focus on guests requirements when planning for the big day. We now rarely attend any weddings that do not cater for their guests with little extras that make the day so much more comfortable for all attending. With this in mind we have compiled a checklist of little extras you can put together for your family and friends. These hampers can be left in the gents and ladies bathrooms, and should be checked on by venue staff throughout the night to make sure stocks are replenished as needed.
Ladies Bathroom Basket for your Wedding
In the ladies bathroom basket or hamper, there should be a whole range of possibilities for your guests to choose from. In this article we are going to list some of the more popular options and advise on some little extras that you won’t see anywhere else.
On a day when all the ladies in your company will want to be looking their very best, toiletries are a must-have at all times of the day. Your bathroom basket should include some if not all of the following:
Toothpaste and disposable toothbrushes
Hair care products
Whilst many women will have had their hair done professionally that morning, it is important to supply some backup products for later on in the festivities when the original hairstyles may be starting to wane.
Hair brushes / combs
Your female guests will truly appreciate any extras you include that make them feel comfortable at all hours of the day or night. Check out our list below of thoughtful extras that will have your guests singing your praises.
Flip-flops or slippers
Clear nail varnish
Product samples to take away
For the Men
Most of the products listed above can also be included in the bathroom baskets you provide for the gents toilets. Make sure you include these extras to ensure the men are just as well looked after as the women throughout your celebrations.
Hair gel / wax
If you are having a child-free wedding reception you can also include some more risqué items such as Rennies, aspirin or mini liquors. For those of you who will have children attending the venue, please make sure you omit anything that can be harmful to or inappropriate for a child from your wedding baskets. Little hands are happy to pick up anything that isn’t nailed down, so this should be an important consideration when planning your baskets.
