    Can someone reccommend a good place to buy the insulated mugs?

    I know a lot of girls on here have you used discountmugs.com and have been fairly happy with them. A local screen-print shop is thinking about matching the prices from the site... but we will see if it happens. I called around to different places in my area and got a variety of quotes.

      Is that really enough?
      I think that's definitely enough!
      I bought tissue paper tonight at Dollar Tree to stuff my OOT bags, so they don't look skimpy.

            i think the most useful thing is sun screen and the most used and fun thing is a disposable underwater camera (even though these arent the best quality photos they are a lot of fun and convenient for beach adventures)

              Hey Becky,

              what about dropping something in the bag that is specific to your destination location. So since you are in Jamaica, why not something rasta, rasta colors or reggae?

                This is a great thread- just making sure I'm on track with my buying- I think I need to add mugs-- since we are getting married at an AI--- the guests can take their mugs up to the bars and get them filled- is this right?!?

                So I guess what I'm asking is... for those of you have recieved an OOT bag or already given them to your guests... What items were popular and used with your guests? What items do you wish you hadn't bought?
                you can never have too much sunscreen...it is very expensive to buy in the resort.

                everyone loved our t-shirts...they all wore them and so we knew who was part of the wedding.

                hats for the boys when they went deepsea fishing...we bought them for super cheap in vietnam...like $1.25 each for those tan canvas wide brim hats
