    I don’t think its trashy, the ones in the picture are cute. Is this something you’re going to give yo each guest like a favor?

    I think it’s fun but how big of a wedding are you having? Is this for every guest?

    the highlight of our wedding was the booze (our wedding was a cocktail reception at one of the most highly-ranked cocktail bars in the world for the last decade) so this would have been appreciated and totally appropriate for our wedding! I would have loved it, however if your wedding is more traditional, it might seem kind of off-color.

    Beyond trashy. It’s practically encouraging a guest to drink in excess at a formal event. The kit itself is cute by the name is too inappropriate. I’d make a big basket with lots of goodies, leave it in the washrooms, by the entrance or by the bar and call it a Relief Kit.

    I think they are cute and silly. We made them for our wedding party, but not for all the guests

    Those are adorable! I absolutely would have appreciated one of those heading out of many a wedding! (The gatorade especially.)

    I think it’s a little mean to call it trashy… But defiantly inappropriate in my opinion.

    I mean, think about your crowd. I’ve never been to a post-wedding brunch where everyone wasn’t bleary-eyed, and we don’t consider a hangover some kind of moral failing. Also, it’s not necessary to be out-of-control drunk to experience a hangover. Past a certain age, two glasses of wine will do it! But I guess many people have a more puritanical view towards alcohol.

    “I was going to abstain from drinking, but the presence of day-after kits is causing me to shoot for alcohol poisoning!” Yeah, that’s not how people think.

    Does FI have friends/family that struggle with sobriety? I guess that could result in such a strong reaction against joking about drinking. I would understand that.

    As someone who doesn’t drink, I’d feel awkward recieving this. And it is saying you want us to get sh*t tanked. 

    It honestly seems like a waste of money. Let your guests suffer…. just give them a snack or some coffee beans or whatever for the next morning.

    CocoClassic:  Yup, I was thinking that incorporating it into the bathroom baskets would suffice. But for an informal wedding, it’s acceptable and cute.

    To clarify, I don’t think that hang-over kits at an event are going to change peoples minds from not drinking to drinking in exess. I think that the message is distasteful at a formal event and you’ll find lots of older people who will agree (and as many who won’t). I guess the bottom line is that it’s your day, so if you don’t care what people think do what makes you happy.

    My in-laws probably would have had a stroke, lol.
