Our “Wedding Hangover” – A Milestone Anniversary Celebration

Quick Jump To » Comments

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.”

    lol is someone bringing a baby lol

    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…

  3. Woods&Company Custom Gifts August 12, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    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?”

    LOVE IT!!

  4. Leslie Juarez August 12, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    Great party theme! You should have a “Find Doug” scavenger hunt!

  5. Lindsey {Bella Grace Party Designs} August 12, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    This is going to be AWESOME! My favorite movie of ALL time!

  6. Woods&Company Custom Gifts August 12, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    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.

  7. Kathleen R August 12, 2010 at 3:07 pm

    I love the fonts on the sign! Are those from a website that I could get my hands on them? This is so creative.

  8. Cassandre Snyder August 12, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    This sounds like it is going to be a BLAST!

  9. Jaime August 12, 2010 at 3:43 pm

    Wow! You’ve outdone yourself again. Thank you for sharing a fabulous idea!

  10. jenn s. August 12, 2010 at 3:46 pm

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

  12. Ces August 12, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    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.

  13. vanessa ruiz August 12, 2010 at 4:22 pm

    I am in love with this theme!!!

  14. Christy August 12, 2010 at 4:37 pm


  15. Heather August 12, 2010 at 4:44 pm

  16. Lisa August 12, 2010 at 4:58 pm

    This is the cutest and coolest idea ever! lol

  17. Natalie August 12, 2010 at 5:56 pm

    Love all the ideas !!!

    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!

  19. Kendall August 12, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    Can’t wait! Can we renew our 10 years, too??!! Ha ha- the theme is great!

  20. Sandi August 12, 2010 at 6:36 pm

  21. Jenni August 13, 2010 at 6:57 am

    It sounds like so much fun! I’m really excited to see all the details.

  22. Maria August 13, 2010 at 7:38 am

    Did you make the Save The Dates? I was wondering what type font was used for “10YR” & “NEVADA”?


  23. jenn s. August 13, 2010 at 8:02 am

    That font is called JF Ringmaster. You can download it for free here: https://www.dafont.com/jf-ringmaster.font

  26. Chellecara August 13, 2010 at 9:18 am

    you’re gonna need a cop car as a “limo” for the night. This sounds like it would be a great night!

  27. Maria August 13, 2010 at 9:20 am

    Thank you. Congrats!

  28. Chantelle August 13, 2010 at 9:42 am

    don’t forget to have a naked man pop out of the trunk as everyone is leaving the chapel!
    tiger charms and jagermieister favors mentioned above…perfect!!!

  29. Kara August 13, 2010 at 4:40 pm

  32. Gayle August 15, 2010 at 1:17 am

    This idea is awesome. I’m inspired into thinking of creative ideas for you! LOL.
    This means I have 4 years up my sleeve to come up with my own 10 year rendition, surely I can think of something??!

  33. Maureen Anders & Adria Ruff August 15, 2010 at 6:22 am

  35. Heather August 16, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    Just leave the “roofies” or “groundies” out of the fun! lol

  36. Ashleigh Dorfman, CSEP of posh parties, LLC August 17, 2010 at 5:56 am

    You are super talented! By chance, I saw the movie last night. So funny! Thanks for the inspiration; I can’t wait to see your event unfold!

  37. Amy August 17, 2010 at 7:45 am

    You can buy ” Baby Carrier Hang Over t-shirts” for $20 each at 80stees.com. I have nothing to do with that website or company.
    I just thought that they would be so funny!!!
    I can’t wait to see the pictures!

  38. Kate M. August 17, 2010 at 8:29 am

  40. Tiffani August 24, 2010 at 8:23 am

    I am doing this same theme for my hubby’s 40th. Complete with vowel renewal. Can’t wait to see how this develops. Don’t forget personalized shot glasses in the welcome package. And instead of steak kabobs, include peppered beef jerky!!!

  41. The Fairy August 25, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Genius! I only wish I had seen this before my 10th a few months back!

  42. Micaela August 29, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    Oh Jenn! I love this!!! Maybe my mom and I can come out for it… great excuse to go to Vegas and see my favorite cousin!! XoXo

  43. Christine August 30, 2010 at 11:18 pm

  44. Kim September 2, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    Very great idea! Love it! Best movie ever! I never laughed so hard. Will have to keep this idea in mind.

    Where did you get the tiger, chicken, and poker chips images from the save the date? Are they the same ones (images) that they used for the movie?

    Cannot wait to see all the pics and the fun!

    • jenn s. November 3, 2010 at 12:42 pm

      Hi Kim –
      Sorry I didn’t see your question earlier! The images are all royalty-free stock photos (not from the movie). I bought them at istockphoto.com. :)

  45. Cindy October 26, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    What a great idea!

  46. Cathi November 29, 2010 at 12:50 pm

    Love the idea! You guys should get the disposable cameras and give them out at your cocktail party so people can take random pictures during their “free time” and preparation for the ceremony. Then you can have another party when you get home to look and laugh : )

  47. Julie February 4, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    Mu husband and I just left a party discussing a Vegas trip for our 10 year anniversary. Your save the dates were great! Can they be ordered?

    • jenn s. February 16, 2012 at 2:17 pm

      Hi Julie – Congrats on your 10 year! So glad you liked the save the dates :) Unfortunately I’m not able to offer customized versions right now due to my regular workload, but if you show them to another stationery designer they should be able to easily replicate the look. The name of the main font is “Budmo Jiggler” and you can download it for free right here: http://www.dafont.com/
