That's what I was thinking that it will be regular plastic cup, but he is insisting that it will be something like tall glass... hm, very hard to believe.... I am trying to convince him for travel mugs... he is saying that people will loose it and will end up using resort cups for drinks..... I think I will work some more on him re travel mugs.... I will play the BRIDE card... :)

Not sure if you can get koozies in that size. I could be wrong though! I hope I'm wrong, as I always need to make dozens of trips to the bar because the cups are so small!!! Good luck-- and great idea. I still have the cozie I got at my cousins wedding, and I think of her everytime I use it ;) You could always get personalized plastic cups for people that they can ask the bartenders to use to make their drinks in... which would be larger and cut down on trips to the bar! Hmm... I like that idea. I'm giving out beach bags and (knock-off) ray bans in our colours! Maybe I'll add some large cups too.... Have fun!

They keep your drink cold and are environmentally preferable to the disposable cups they provide at most bars. They may be a bit more expensive if you order them customized but totally worth it. If you want more economical, most dollar stores carry them and you can personalize them with a label maker.

 

Another note...if you decide on the insulated travel mugs, bring along some straws. They are not available at the beach bars and we find they work well with the mugs, especially for some of the slushy blender drinks. People always ask me where I got the straws and I end up giving a bunch away.

I think I am going to explode in the next 6 weeks. How is everyone else feeling?

Hi Gemma,

It seems to be difficult to get informations sometimes:-(

The brochure contains all services and prices of the spa (massages, body treatments, hairdresser,...).

We are doing the insulated travel mugs for our group. There are 48 of us. We bought plain black travel mugs from dollar tree. Someone suggested labels. Though it may not be fancy, we are writing their names with puff paint in our wedding colors. Fun and a little different so I like it. The good thing is that the letters peel right off so after the trip or even during the trip if they don't like it and can just have a plain cup. We have used travel mugs on many vacations and we love them! In the small plastic cups they melt quickly and don't last very long because they are so small and this resort and all other resorts I have been to. We have never had a problem of losing our cups because we constantly are drinking something out of them. The cups we got from dollar tree are of course $1 so super cheap and it's fun. Everyone will know that we all belong in a group together.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
