Was at a wedding recently had deodrant, mints and plasters in it - Thought it was real good idea. But then heard one of bridal parties giving out cos mints went missing!! :o0 She was going mad, felt like saying relax probably only cost a euro or something

Unless your Bmaid wanted to do it. Wouldnt worry about it most people have their own bits in their bag.

Heya I ot the idea on here and I love it!!It took me aut 30 mins one day to buy the stuff and about 40euro max!Ceap basket from heatons,tissue paper and there you are! Can't rem everything I have for it but have the following for the ladies Min bottles of perfume-asked pharmacy for loadsa samples hand cream brown clips tights-tan coloured from pennys in 3 dif sizes, you get 2 pairs in pk I think so first one with the ladders wins them :o0 tic tacs from lidl rennie deo lollipops from tesco hairbrush clear nail varnish smal samples of make up-y'know when you get a free gift with lancome etc and they give you small mascara etc Can't think of what else I have in it but if you do a search here you should find loadza ideas for the boys I'm putting in mints,rennies, small aftershave and gel shots from bryllcream and deo. Hope this helps :wv

To be honest its just another thing to worry about and i'm not bothering. What i am doing thought is putting scented candles in the ladies. I just love the smell.

i know it sounds like a great idea but to be honest another €40 -50 is still another expense and i'm sure my guests will be able to sort themselves out. It's these little things that are really putting up the budget - i keep forgetting that on their own they don't cost alot but when all added together it is pricey. JMO :wv

Just make sure that if there are children that you leave the tablets at reception and just put a note saying they are available from there on the basket. We are doing this, haven;t got much worked out though. See this thread; ... p?t=137308
