Restroom amenity baskets are a nice, thoughtful touch for a wedding.  If you have the time, energy and talent to collect, arrange and display the essentials, you may go the DIY route for an amenity basket.  However, we’ve found that amenity baskets are often not as easy as they may seem, not to mention your time and energy will probably be short.  We recommend the Signature Restroom Amenity Basket on Marigold & Grey.  This basket includes anything and everything your wedding guests may need, plus it’s got good looks too.  The fun “Compliments of the Bride & Groom” sign even comes with the basket too.  Effortless- check.  Stylish- check.  Useful- check.  Call it a win-win and order one basket per bathroom!

Press: How to Plan the Perfect Mini-Moon, No Matter How Short

We’ve been featured over on Martha Stewart Weddings talking about the most effective ways to plan a mini-moon even if you’re really limited on time!

A snippet: “If you’re getting married at a luxury resort, consider extending your stay there for a few days. Most of your guests will probably head out the day after the wedding, which means you’ll have the resort to yourself. You may also be able to take advantage of a lowered room rate offered to your guests and get a few nights of honeymoon bliss for a reduced rate.”

Dress news? You text your ‘maids. Caterer drama? You send ’em an email. “You may be a slave to your iPhone and your email, but that doesn’t mean everyone else wants to read 10 emails a day,” says Amy Nichols, owner of Amy Nichols Special events and cofounder of the Poppy Group. Send succinct, necessary messages only.”
