Weddings take a whole lot of planning. According to industry professionals, you should allow at least 12 – 18 months of preparation time in order to choose the perfect venue, find the perfect dress, send out the invitations and the thousands of other details you need to arrange. The easiest way to do this is to make a plan, use a spreadsheet, get your project manager head on and go for it.
When the big day arrives, it will all seem worth it!
A new trend in wedding planning is the hangover kit. A wedding hangover kit is a great way to protect your guests from that “morning after the night before” feeling.
You can have the kits delivered to your guests room ahead of their arrival, and don’t forget to save two for yourself so that you and your partner can start your first day of married life bright eyed and bushy tailed.
Here are some wedding hangover kit ideas to help you. The kit should be full of useful items that will help everyone rest and recover.
Water: A bottle of water is essential. Alcohol causes dehydration so this will be very welcome, as it is something that most of us don’t even think about until it is too late.
Headache tablets: a couple of Paracetamol or Ibuprofen will help reduce the headache effects of a hangover.
Rehydration salts: These help replace lost minerals and electrolytes and will make you feel better the next day after a raucous night of partying.
Pepto Bismol tablets: All that rich food and drink can leave you feeling queasy so preempt this with some medication to target stomach acid.
Snack bar: a granola bar or similar is often very welcome in the period between waking up queasy and having breakfast.
Soft foam ear plugs: Your guests may wish to sleep in, so help them sleep without disturbances by adding a pair of ear plugs to each kit. It helps with the headache too.
Nature’s Way Kudzu Root: This is a supplement based on a natural Chinese remedy for detrimental health habits. Kudzu root is rich in antioxidants and can help the liver recover after too much alcohol. Nature’s Way is a reputable company that provides innovative traditional remedies for all ages and for all medical and lifestyle conditions.
Starbucks gift card: coffee is the ultimate reason for getting out of bed with a hangover. So treating your guests to a free coffee next morning will certainly hit the spot. You can buy Starbucks gift cards for around $5 per time and bulk buys are available on Amazon.
There are loads of handy items you can add to your wedding hangover kit. What about some fluffy sleep socks, some black sunglasses, available from Walmart for a couple of dollars, some Listerine mouthwash?
You can buy everything in bulk and with the addition of some cheap drawstring bags that display your wedding branding, you can be confident that you have thought of every comfort for you and your guests.
