In brief: Dehydration

A lot of alcohol combined with high carb, salty foods will cause you to become very dehydrated causing your dry mouth.
Drink plenty of water today and you will be fine.

In brief: Dehydration?

Not eating right, drinking alcohol instead of taking in hydrating fluids, & maybe lots of vigorous dancing & activities may have left you dehydrated.
Signs to watch for, aside from just dry mouth, may include (in no order of importance): little or no urine, or urine that is darker than usual sleepiness or fatigue extreme thirst headache confusion feeling dizzy or lightheaded no tears when crying.
