All You Need Wedding Day Utility Basket

Everything To Include In Your Wedding Bathroom Utility Basket

Have you ever heard of a “bathroom utility basket” for a wedding or party? Recently, I have seen so much about them! It got me thinking, I may make one for our wedding! I personally don’t think they are necessary but they definitely add a touch elegance to any party! If you’re like me and haven’t heard of these before, they are essentially a basket or box that goes into the bathroom. It contains all sorts of items such as ibuprofen, wet wipes, mini sewing kit, and even a Tide To Go. The purpose of the basket is so if guests needed, they could help themselves in the event they’re not feeling well or there’s a mishap.

A few tips:

  • Make sure to make two baskets – one for men and one for women
  • Collect product samples throughout planning so you don’t need to buy everything
  • If young children will be there, don’t put the baskets where they can be reached or at least put medicine and sharp objects separate
  • There’s no need to buy name brands or fancy products – keep it simple
  • Get creative with your basket and add a sign to let people know they can help themselves throughout the night

Here are some suggestions on what to include in your wedding day bathroom utility basket:

  1. Wet wipes
  2. Deodorant (men’s and women’s)
  3. Tide To Go stain remover
  4. Mini sewing kit
  5. Tylenol/Ibuprofen
  6. Bandaids
  7. Pads & Tampons
  8. Listerine breath strips or mouth wash with small cups
  9. Floss sticks
  10. Hair ties & bobby pins
  11. Hair spray
  12. Lint rollers
  13. Toothbrushes & mini toothpastes
  14. Sunscreen if an outdoor daytime wedding
  15. Hand sanitizer
  16. Tums or antacid tablets
  17. Bug spray (if needed)
  18. Tissues
  19. Cough drops
  20. Lash glue
  21. Baby powder (great for chafing!)
  22. Scissors
  23. Body spray
