    SO, now that I have ordered my travel mugs I was day dreaming about all the ways I could use it during the wedding. I was thinking about this while I was floating on a raft in my pool...and then I looked over at my drink sitting in the raft cup holder....and it hit me...I should order mini rafts for our drinks...you know to compliment the swim up bar!!

    I googled it and I did find a floating tray for 5 drinks and some snacks which I will surely invest in....however, does anyone have any ideas for a mini floating cup holder that I could add to our OOT bags I am sure someone has thought of this.

    I must be googling the wrong thing because the only hits I get a $10 floating rubber duck....not exactly what I was thinking of.

    Any ideas? Any DIY ideas?

      I will take a look online, but just be careful of the weight if you are going to bring them. We orig. wanted to bring rafts and when we went to the store they were so heavy.

                what about using swimmies? the ones for kids arms...could you buy them, split up the pack and personalize them/write something so people know what they're for? i think it's the perfect size.

                  What a great idea! I think I may have to add these to my list of OOT bag stuff to buy.

                      Very wise advice!!! I was originally thinking I wanted something that was inflatable because of the size, but the weight is also another serious concern given the baggage restrictions!
