Bathroom survival kits

CJ02

More and more I am seeing bathroom survival kits at weddings. They are lovely bathroom details and I think incredibly thoughtful. Lots of couples are suppling a survival type kit in the bathroom at their weddings including all sorts of things that a guest may need. From pain killers, to safety pins, to hairspray and tampons.

They are  such a wonderful idea and I have seen them being put to use even in the relatively short time that I am at a wedding. One thing that you would want to take note of, or even measure, is what sort of space is going to be in the bathrooms at the venue. Especially if you are buying baskets or something to store your survival kits in. You don’t want to be making a trip to exchange the wrong size baskets the day before the wedding. Also check if you have exclusive use of these bathrooms or not. If you are having any children attending the wedding, you may want to look at how high up these survial kits are going to be. You don’t want any of the kids getting their hands on the panadol!

Mens Bathroom

* pain killers (panadol or advil)

* safety pins / mini sewing kit

* hairspray/ hair wax

* mints / breath spray/ dental floss

* spray deodorant

* tissues

* bandaids

* moisturiser

* cotton buds

* comb or brush

* Hydrolite/ Immodium tablets

* rennie / milanta tablets

* shoe polish

* lint brush

* sunscreen/ bug spray

Obviously this list could go on forever and you are only limited by your imagination, budget and the size of the bench or basket. There are plenty of great little poems that you can use to ask your guests to use what they need and leave the rest for the other guests. Or you could simply have a little sign that says ‘with complements from the newlyweds’.
