If you've got an amazing reception organised for your wedding day then you'll want your guests to have a great time, and while 'just one more drink' seems like a good idea in the moment, come morning - maybe not so much.
Enter the wedding hangover kit - a handy bag filled with all the essentials your guests will need to relieve morning-after aches, including toiletries, painkillers and genius items to ensure they make it to breakfast. Simply hand them out at your reception (we're obsessed with the wicker baskets above) or leave them in your guestss hotel rooms ahead of their arrival.
You won't have to spend lots on each kit, most of the items are readily available for affordable prices on Amazon, or you might already have a few items knocking around your house. Plus, these recovery bags can be filled with fun items such as under-eye masks and dry shampoo meaning even the non-drinkers will be grateful!
