    Which should I give? It'd be one per person. Stadium cups will probably be significantly cheaper...

    My sister said go with the stadium cups because people don't appreciate anything anyway.

    What do you think?

      I don't really see the purpose of the stadium cups, other than that they look cute that everyone has a matching up (but is it any better than the cup they give you at the resort) whereas the mugs have the obvious advantage of keeping the drinks cold, the sand out, and avoids spills (like when shifting on your lounge chair and you accidentally knock your glass over!)

      But yes mugs are expensive and glasses are cheap.

      I made my own mugs using the decorate-your-own-mugs from oriental trading company. The mugs are 6 for 12$ and I just printed out our names on a beach background (similar to my invitations) and then had them laminated (in case the glass leaked so that the design wouldn't be ruined). The only thing is those cheap mugs from OTC aren't insulated so only keep your drink slighly colder than a regular cup (but you still have the other benefits).

      I'm going to agree that I see way more value in the mugs than I do with the cups. Mostly because it was SO hot at our wedding that everyone appreciated the insulated part of the mug! And it appears that the fact it had a handle was a big hit too?!?!

        How many guests are you having?? We are thinking that the number of guests attending will determine which we personally might go with (stadium cup or travel mug)?

          We're thinking we'll have 50-75 people. Right now we have 14 with plane tickets. we can count to almost 30 people who are "definates".

            I did cups because they are easier to pack.

            To me the purpose is so they don't have to go back for refills as often. The AIs have small cups. Insulation would be nice though.

            I think there are travel mugs that stack nicely so you could do something like that. I didn't want to use more than 1 piece of luggage for the wedding stuff so I kepts all the OOT stuff compact.

            If you want to keep them cheaper you can skip the personalization or paint it yourself with a paint pen.

              I'd say the stadium cups because people are bound to leave whatever you give them somewhere so why spend more, esp. with the amount of money it will end up costing with all of those guests.

                50-75 travel mugs could take a lot of space unless they are more compact. I was expecting more like 50 people when I bought the cups. Now that it's 25 I could have done mugs. oh well, it's done.

                are you in the same town? you could pass out the mugs before the trip. my guests are all scattered.

                  My guests are scattered...most are in the NYC area, but there are some in VT, FL, NV and PA...proabably other places too

                  I'll proabably wait till it gets closer and I have a more definate number, but I wanted everyones ideas and opinions :)

                    Really? People liked a handle? The style of travel mugs I was planning on buying don't have a handle - I didn't even think of whether to get one with a handle or not. Hmmm....maybe I should get one with a handle?
