Wedding Favours: Impress Your Guests with Thoughtful Hangover Kits

In Planning, Planning & Tips by tanya.joslin

Wedding celebrations overflow with joy, but the day-after repercussions of spirited revelry can be challenging for some guests. Elevate your hospitality at your destination wedding by offering a thoughtful hangover kit with essential recovery items with this guide.

As you brainstorm unique wedding favour ideas for your upcoming destination celebration, consider presenting your guests with a wedding hangover kit. The logic is simple: you want your guests to relish your wedding day thoroughly. Yet, the morning after a night filled with lively cocktails and celebrations can be tricky—particularly if you’ve organised additional post-wedding activities like a group brunch or outing.

While you may not control the extent of your guests’ celebrations during the reception, providing a hangover recovery kit empowers them to navigate the aftermath effectively and make the most of every day away with you to celebrate your wedding. 

Here’s a guide to ensure your hangover kit is both practical and a true lifesaver for your beloved guests.

The Perfect Hangover Kit Bag

Begin with a suitable bag that’s not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing. Personalise these compact, lightweight bags with your names, wedding date, and location, making them both memorable and practical.

Electrolyte Packets: Combat dehydration with electrolyte packets to help guests replenish lost fluids and restore balance after a night of celebration.

Anti-nausea Tablets: Including anti-nausea tablets in a wedding hangover kit is a thoughtful addition to addressing potential discomfort and nausea that may arise from the celebratory festivities. Weddings often involve indulgence in rich foods and alcoholic beverages, which can sometimes lead to an upset stomach the morning after. Anti-nausea tablets provide a practical solution to help guests alleviate any feelings of queasiness, allowing them to recover more comfortably and fully enjoy the post-wedding activities you may have planned.

Hand Sanitiser: In today’s world, hand sanitisers are a must. Include small, travel-sized bottles to aid guests who’ve travelled to your wedding or interacted with large groups during their stay.

Makeup Remover Wipes: Offering a practical remedy for guests who’ve celebrated a bit too enthusiastically and find themselves less inclined to engage in a complete nighttime cleansing routine, these wipes are incredibly convenient for makeup wearers and will stop them having to turn to hotel soap, which may be harsh on the skin.

Breath Freshening Items: Ensure fresh breath throughout the event by including gum, mints, or tic-tacs in your hangover survival kits.

Stain Remover Wipes: Stain Remover Wipes are an invaluable addition to the wedding hangover kit, offering a convenient on-the-go solution that can be a lifesaver for guests with unexpected spills on their clothing during the post-celebration revelry.

Pain Relievers: Pain Relievers, a crucial inclusion in the wedding hangover kit, are indispensable in relieving post-celebration headaches and general aches, ensuring that guests can recover and fully enjoy the subsequent destination wedding festivities.

Vitamin C Packets: Boost your guests’ immune systems with vitamin C packets. Excessive alcohol intake can deplete vitamin C levels and disrupt the absorption, storage, and utilisation of essential nutrients, including vitamin C. These supplements could also be beneficial during seasons when illnesses are more common. Additionally, travel exposes people to numerous individuals and potential viruses, making the immune-boosting properties of vitamin C even more valuable.

Under Eye Masks: Including eye masks for sleeping in your wedding hangover kit is a thoughtful addition with multiple benefits. After a night of celebration, some guests may seek extra rest the following day, and eye masks can create a dark, soothing environment conducive to better sleep and enhanced recovery. 

Eye masks are great for reducing puffiness around the eyes, which can happen due to things like alcohol consumption and changes in routine. They also provide comfort in shared accommodations or unfamiliar sleeping environments by blocking out light.

Ear Plugs: For shared accommodations, thoughtful ear plugs allow early-retiring guests to rest undisturbed or for those who want to sleep in the following day.

Travel Size Eye Drops: Help your guests address redness and irritation from insufficient sleep, sun exposure, and alcohol consumption by providing convenient eye drops.

Band-Aids: Practical band-aids are handy for minor injuries that may occur during the celebration.

Small Snacks: Include a small snack like a protein or granola bar for late arrivals or those needing a post-festivity treat.

Travel Tissue Packs: Versatile travel tissue packs are a valuable addition to various celebration needs.

Crafting a hangover kit is a considerate gesture that ensures your guests have everything they need to recover and enjoy their stay. Begin assembling your perfect hangover kit today and let the celebration continue!
