welcome packet and emergency basket w/awesome saying

DIY: Out of Town Gift Bag Welcome Packet

It's always exciting to get a reader request. Reader M asked that I show the information included on the Welcome Packet/Letter in our Out of Town Gift Bags. As I mentioned earlier, the packet was 8 pages. Since it was layered, we had four different size pages.

Below, I have labeled each page number and each group number. The group number represents the different size pages.

It took some time, especially the map, but the guests loved it. Denton used Google Maps to create a saved map. Then, he used this link to make the map printable. Finally, he had a lot of work to do to get the numbers out and arranged appropriately for our template.

If you have any other questions, feel free to leave a comment or email me!

Bathroom Baskets

Bathroom Baskets are one of those nice extras that couples can provide for their guests. They are baskets (or any type of container) filled with tolietries and emergency kit items that are placed in the bathroom for wedding guests.

Couples can get most of the items at grocery stores or chains like Target or CostCo. They are not a wedding "must" but a very nice extra.

Items for the Men's Bathroom Basket
Items for the Women's Bathroom Basket

Here is a list of the items that I included:
Band Aids
Bobby Pins
brush ups
Clear Nail Polish
first aid
Hair Spray
Hand Lotion
Hand Sanitizor
Nail File
Rolaid Chews
Safety Pins
Sewing Kit
Shout Wipes
Spray Deorderant
Tide To Go

On the outside of the Basket, I wrote the following note:
For Your Convenience
So happy you are here to share our day
But if something should happen to go astray,
Please help yourself to the contents within,
Safety pin, hand lotion, and even aspirin,
Use only what you need and leave the rest
It may be helpful to some other guest,
So repair the damage that may have been done,
Then hurry back and join in the Fun!

Compliments of the Newlyweds
