Bathrooms and Music

During a Twitter conversation with @msrib and @brokebride2be (I love my wedding weekend buddies!), I realized I had forgotten about bathroom baskets for the reception. Luckily @msrib found a handy list of items to include in one.  I considered getting it all at CVS, but they don’t exactly have the most extensive selection or best prices.  I browsed around and found pretty much everything I needed.  It adds up though! Here’s what I got from there:

Solos Shelf Shine Shoe Polish Cream
Ting Foot & Jock Itch, Antifungal Spray Powder
Speed Stick by Mennen Deodorant, Regular Scent, Travel Size

Revlon Nail Enamel - Clear
Stayfree Maxi Super Long with Wings, Heavy Protection, Pads
o.b. Pro Comfort Non-Applicator Tampons, Super Plus
Vidal Sassoon No Crimper Braided Elastics
Vidal Sassoon Bobbi Pins, Black
Lady Speed Stick by Mennen Antiperspirant & Deodorant, Powder Burst

Salon Grafix Professional Freezing Hair Spray Styling Mist, Mega Hold
Rite Aid Pink Bismuth, Regular Strength (Pepto Bismol)
Aleve All Day Strong Pain Reliever
Easy Care First Aid Kit
Kleenex White Pocket Tissue
Germ-X Hand Sanitizer
St. Ives Intensive Healing Hand Cream, Fragrance-Free
Tide To Go, Instant Stain Remover Pens
Evercare Magik Brush 2-Sided Lint Brush
Singer Sewing Kit With Polyester Thread
Q-tips Cotton Swabs, Antimicrobial
Visine Visine, Eye Drops, Advanced Redness Relief
Bausch & Lomb Biotrue Multipurpose Solution for Soft Contact Lenses
Sight Savers Eyewear Repair Kit
Revlon Emery Boards

Conair Brush Styling Essentials Super Comb
Preserve Mint Tea Trea Toothpicks
LISTERINE PocketPaks Breath Strips, Cool Mint
Ricola Herb Throat Drops, Natural Cherry-Honey
LifeSavers Candy, Pepomint
Butler Dental Floss, Fresh Mint

Then from I bought nylons for the women, and batteries for both (cameras, etc.).  I’ll be buying baskets from AC Moore, and it’s already cost me $200!  Jeesh.  I did buy a third of some of those things for my own wedding-day emergency kit, and we can keep and use whatever’s leftover, like toothpicks, mints, and whatnot.  Great idea, very convenient for guests, but NOT cheap.

I’ve been putting off making my wedding playlist.  We own a TON of music between us and I knew I needed to go through everything to make sure I got a good mix of songs.  It took me two days (and a bottle of wine) but here it is:
