Our “Wedding Hangover” – A Milestone Anniversary Celebration

Hangover Movie Party Theme

You know how sometimes you & your significant other will talk about a BIG” idea that sounds incredibly fun, but that you secretly know will probably never happen due to schedules, finances, the daily grind, and the sheer process of taking the time to plan it all out? Well, this time it’s different…we really ARE making this idea happen!

The “it” in play here is our 10-year wedding celebration, which might sound innocent enough until you throw in the inspiration: The Hangover and the location: Napa Valley Las Vegas.

Ya… it’s safe to say we’re going to have some FUN with this one!

Hangover Movie Party Theme

We did consider doing a more traditional anniversary party at first, but realized that what we would both REALLY enjoy at this point in time is a weekend of random fun with our beloved wolf pack friends & family. And we’re hoping to create the perfect excuse for them to have some fun too…

1. Kick off the night with a Hangover-themed cocktail party at our (pager-friendly) hotel suite.
2. Turn everyone loose to play as they please for a few hours – hit the tables, see a show, nightclubs, etc…
3. Regroup at the wedding chapel around 2am for a {very entertaining} wedding vow renewal ceremony. Crazy/tacky outfits are encouraged, the funnier the better! Can’t wait for these pictures =)

I’m excited to cover some of the planning process & the actual weekend with you guys here on the blog… there should be plenty of creative inspiration for those of you that want to do something similar – whether it’s to celebrate an anniversary, a bachelor/bachelorette party, or just for fun. I definitely forsee some themed party printables in the future too…

Hangover Movie Party Theme

There are so many creative things you can do with the seriously random, hilarious situations and dialogue from this movie… I can’t wait to get started on the party, because even designing this Save the Date was fun! (It’s not often that you get to work both a tiger and a chicken into the design mix!)

P.S. If you have some creative ideas for this theme, we’d LOVE to hear them! Nothing involving cinnamon though, please. “Tigers hate cinnamon.”

This is sounds like a great party plan! You need to do something with cameras. I’m thinking about the “the lost pictures” on The Hangover DVD. Hmm…

I am TOTALLY in love with this idea!! It is fantastic and not only will the gals be excited for the party, but basing a party off of The Hangover is SURE to have the guys saying, “Who let the dogs out? Who? Who?”

Woods&Company Custom Gifts SAYS:

by the way, you shoudl do favors or welcome gifts for the guests. Get a few inexpensive “satchels”, and make sure there’s some Yagermeister, poker chips, hospital ID bands, plastic cop badges, disposable cameras, photos of Mike Tyson and directions to the Wedding Chapel. You could also giev beer coozies with your photo from the wedding chapel as favors.

Serve steak kabobs encrusted with a pepper blend or some sort of steak with pepper. Tigers loves pepper~

what a wonderful way to celebrate! Definately different from a tradiional anniversary celebration but totally awesome.
what about giving away as favors the same favors as the movie– i think it was mugs and t-shirts? maybe you could work in the missing tooth somehow– tooth shaped chocolats or something.

The Camera a MUST.
A Jager toast

Great ideas for a Wedding party. After the toast
All the girls leave to do there thing & all the guys go to do there thing. ( they can play the games on there outings) Find Stuff for Scavenger hunt.
The Bride & Groom should wear a Baby sling & fake baby with sunglasses . use the sling as a bag for camers, keys, stuff they find on the hunt.
Last go & find crazy outfits
Then meet up at the Chapel.

The Next moring host a Find Doug Breakfast. Decorate the room ( trash it) empty cups, bottles cans, Feathers everywhere, furnature tiped over. A poster of a tiger in the bathroom. Then everyone can show what they found on there scavenger hunt to see who won. Or the last cue to find Doug. Give a prize.

My cousin threw a co-ed wedding shower a couple months ago for a friend and it was EPIC! The Hangover is their favorite movie so they were really excited!

She found a life-size stuffed tiger and put it in the bathroom, guests were floored when they went to powder their noses!

The groom wore one of those baby harnesses (WITH A BABY DOLL), shades, white pants, and a t-shirt. The bride-to-be blacked out her tooth.

Lastly, in the basement, there was a casino setup with a full bar and everything!

It was sooo much fun!
