(+ FREE Printable!)

Posted June 19, 2012 | 10 Comments

What is one of the most overlooked areas of the wedding to-do list? The wedding bathroom! It isn’t fun to talk about, but it’s completely necessary to address. Every wedding has a bathroom (or a ‘loo, which sounds lovelier if you ask us) and with these 5 must-have ideas you can keep yours stocked with essentials and keep guests dancing all night long. Read on to see what we’ve found including an adorable handmade tip you’ll want to try immediately + a FREE printable to enjoy! Read on for the full details following a photo of brides donning toilet paper dresses… too fun!

Wedding Bathroom Ideas

1. Easy-to-Find Sign

It’s obvious you’ll have a bathroom, so make it easy for guests to find. Give an otherwise boring or ugly sign a facelift by opting for a handmade option instead. We love this painted sign by Simon Says Signs

… and this one by My Primitive Boutique for the shabby chic bride…

2. Personalized Signs on Bathroom Doors

This is maybe the cutest idea for the bathroom doors themselves I’ve ever seen. Post a picture of the bride from when she was little on the ladies’ room door; follow suit for the groom. How sweet!

3. Plenty of Light (at Night)

What makes a porta-potty scary at night? Not being able to see! Easy fix: use an adhesive square to mount the back of a battery operated LED touch light to attach to a bathroom wall. (Avoid the door, as it gets opened and closed so often it may make the light fall.) Push the light on at night and leave on for the duration of the reception.

We also love these mason jar light jars, reminiscent of catching lightning bugs. By A Need To Be Me. Place along the path leading up to the bathroom at night so guests can easily see. For a simple lantern you can make in a snap, place a LED candle in a mason jar and place along the path or around the ‘loo.

4. Bathroom Essentials Basket

At every wedding, guests run into a few must-haves along the way. Imagine if you attended a wedding where the bathroom was stocked with a few essentials like mints, travel hair spray, clear nail polish (which instantly fixes runs in stockings), a pack of hair ties + bobby pins, hand sanitizer wipes… it would be such a pleasant surprise! If you’re stocking your own bathroom wedding basket, don’t forget two essential must-haves for outdoor weddings: sunscreen towelettes + TONS of bugspray.

Here’s an example of a pretty wedding bathroom basket stocked-and-ready-to-go via It Weddings Florida:

5. A ‘Help Yourself’ Sign

Every bathroom basket needs a sign to tell guests its OK to use what they need. This bathroom wedding sign features a poem…

    how do you get the lights in the mason jar, the string of lights.

    • http://EmmalineBride.com Emma@EmmalineBride

      Hi Chris,

      You have to drill a hole on one side of the jar. String the lights through the hole, add the lid, and plug in. Hope it helps!

    Hi I love the saying in the frame did you do this yourself or can I download it?

  • nicole

    I am trying to print this sign but it wont come up:( any suggestions?

      Nicole,

      Can you explain the issue? If you click on the photo ‘Compliments of the Newylweds’ a download box should appear. Click ‘Save file as…’ and save locally to your computer. Then, unzip the file and open it – you should be able to print it.

      Let me know if you have any additional questions!
