Ready to create your wedding bathroom baskets?

Now you know the essentials for your wedding bathroom basket, all you need to do now is purchase the items and get a beautiful basket or tray and enjoy putting your wedding bathroom baskets together.

This should be in line with your wedding theme. Use some beautiful wedding flowers or coloured tissue paper to enhance your colour scheme. Collect little samples and hotel gifts during the planning process.

Dress it with a cute sign – you will find plenty of ideas on Etsy. Put them in the right spot to make them look cute and check they are out of reach for small children. This is a gesture which will be highly appreciated.
