    Wal-mart in their craft section. I got mine in packs of 3 and it cost $4ish. Try somewhere like Michael's they have them too and if you can get the 40% coupons they are cheap.

    The stuff that was used most out of our bags were:
    the bag it self
    amazingly enough the mini sewing kit (it even got used to sew up a DH/GM battle wound!)
    medicine (pepto and tylenol)
    Small bottle of sunscreen

    We put other stuff in there but this was what was used the most.

      Stadium cups I ended up ordering form dollarimprint.com - only bad thing is that you have to order 100 - we will need about half of them for the Destination Wedding, and can use the rest at our AHR. They were a decent price and have been super easy to work with so far (approval of artwork, etc) - I haven't received the finished product yet, so I'll let you know how they turn out when I get them (and I'll post a picture).

      The Spanish for Dummies pocket edition books I found (thanks to someone on here) in the dollar section at target a few months ago. You might try searching for them on the internet - I know I have seen a few girls talk recently about little spanish books on here that were pretty cheap - I don't think they are at Target anymore, though

      Hope this helps - if you want more info, let me know!

        My mother just got me a sewing machine as our pre-wedding gift, so I am thinking about making wristlets for the ladies to use to keep their keycard and a few dollars in it. Might make them a little larger so I can stock them with some handy stuff like gum and chapstick

            I'm not sure either... someone mentioned somewhere that the cups they give out at AI's are... tiny? But I don't really get it...

              Travel mugs are great because on all the AI's I stayed at (even the 5 *) they give you small plastic cups so some people have to keep going up to the bar. This way you get one large drink that stays cold. Most bartenders love you using them because they won't see you again for awhile.

                I would say because at most all inclusive resorts where the drinks are included, the cups tend to be small, which means, you and your guests drinks will disappear faster,lol. So to avoid having to repeatedly go back to the bar again and again, it alleviates some of that tedious activity. Plus, it makes a nice gift. They can always be used again after the vacation.

                  Thanks ladies! That makes perfect sense.

                    I waited to the last minute so these suggestions have been helpful

                    will the bartenders actually make the drinks large enough to fit into them?
