Setting up a hand sanitizer wedding station? Great! Here’s how to do it! But first, subscribe while you’re here so you don’t miss out on future tips like this one.
Hi, loves! Wow, weddings during Covid really do bring out interesting topics. I never thought we’d chat so intently about where to buy bulk face masks, where to get face masks for a bachelorette party, how to plan a virtual bridal shower, and more — like How to Set Up a Hand Sanitizing Wedding Station, today’s topic. :)
In addition to masks at your wedding, you’ll also need to set up hand sanitizer stations around the reception. It’s not mandated per se, but guests will appreciate the extra thought and safety precautions in place to keep everyone healthy.
Here are several ways to do it, including a touchless way to really keep germs at bay.
Wedding Hand Sanitizer Station
You may be giving hand sanitizer wedding favors, and that is a GREAT place to start. In addition to providing guests with their own individually-sized hand sanitizer bottles, setting up a hand sanitizer wedding station is easy to do and will make guests feel extra safe.
Here’s What a Wedding Hand Sanitizer Station Needs
What do you need to set up a hand sanitizer station at wedding receptions? That’s easy: just a few things!
• Hand sanitizer pump
You will want to get a hand-sanitizer pump, making it easy for guests to push down and sanitize hands.
The most important thing here: get a hand sanitizer WITH A PUMP. I’m finding these harder to get from stores, as demand increases; however, you can always buy regular hand sanitizer bottles and add a pump to fit (search these to find an appropriate size for your bottle).
A hand sanitizer station at your wedding with a pump is crucial since it eliminates additional touching of the bottle to flip it over and pour it onto your hands.
For an online option, this is a great choice: two 16 oz hand sanitizer pumps, which can be used together or for two separate hand sanitizer wedding station setups (if you need more than one).
You can get these custom bottles with pumps and labels made for you by GreenStemDesign.
If you’d like to add a little flair to your hand sanitizer pump, use a custom label. Here are a few stylish options you’ll love at your wedding hand sanitizer station.

A shop on Etsy named Unquarantined recently started making these foot-pedal stands, which is quite clever — you can use it with any hand-sanitizer pump and it offers a touchless option. (Cool idea!)
If you would like a touchless option without a stand, these non-touch dispensers are a good option. It can be placed on an entryway table at your reception for guests to easily dispense hand sanitizer without touching anything. After your wedding, you can use it in the kitchen or bathroom with soap or sanitizer for a no-touch option always.
• Sanitizer sign

OPTIONAL IDEAS TO ADD TO YOUR WEDDING HAND SANITIZER STATION
Your hand sanitizer wedding station can serve as a great place to sanitize hands — but also as a place to take individual hand sanitizer favor bottles, a face mask, and read the guidelines about the venue’s particular social distancing guidelines (and how their staff is following protocol to keep guests healthy). You can place masks and hand sanitizer favors in a basket like this, set up at the reception entryway.
Hand sanitizer wipes like these are a bonus to have at your wedding sanitizer station. You can get everything shown below from here at For Your Party. They offer a ton of masks, hand sanitizer wipes, and sanitizer favors. Plus, they’re completely custom + so cute! Shop here.
