      I apologize for the long post previously. I found a place that sells a wholesale bulk of 24 stainless steel mugs and a shop on esty that has cute waterproof/dishwasher proof custom stickers. We are going to do this instead of the crazy ordering of 50 mugs. 24 personalized  stainless steel mugs for $92!                

      I was wondering if there are any EMP brides that are interested in ordering Customized mugs with me. Please DM if you are interested. Here's what I found - 

       

      The best deal is ordering 50 mugs, but I only need 25 at the most. If another bride would like 25 the cost would be  $103.00 / 25 mugs = $4.12 per mug

       

      1) Includes shipping of $20 to your house from my house in Minneapolis, MN (shiping to my house is $20 from factory which I would pay)

      2) The cost of the mugs is $83 for 25 of them.

      3) This cost only includes one print color. (black?, green?)  

       

      Depending on your wedding date, if it's in April like mine, we could add April 2012. Otherwise the mugs could be custom but less detailed. I'm open to suggestions if someone is serious about doing this. Here are some ideas:

       

      "Playa Mujeres, Mexico", "Excellence Playa Mujeres 2012" or more specifically "Mexico, April 2012" or we could add a little poem like "Feet in the Sand, Drink in your Hand - Mexico 2012"???

       

      Obviously there are other details that we can talk about over the phone or through email. Pleae DM me if you want to do this and are serious about starting the order process.

       

      Otherwise I'll just order 50 and make them very customized with our names and date on them :) ....and have coffee/ tea mugs for the rest of our lives. ha.

        What a great deal. Sounds way better then ordering 50 & dealing with the hassle of having left overs. Hopefully my budget allows for these...

         

         

        Brennas - thanks for the heads up. After reading that I remembered we had the same problem but luckily had one on our key chain. Definitely going to add them to the bags! Now I know what I will be doing today at work...looking for cute bottle openers lol!

         

        Kurrweddy - Congratulations!! Cant wait to read your review & possibly see some pics!

          Only a few more months now! We are getting really excited. I am ready for it! We are going with the symbolic ceremony and are having our close friend perform the ceremony.

           

          Congrats to all the new brides out there!

                Surely Gustavo and Ileana were transitioning with someone. I know that I spoke with Daniela at one point when Ileana was out of the office. Do we know who the new people are yet?

                  Thank you for the bottle opener tip! We will be adding these to our bags. Love little details like this that may help the guests in the long run!

                    Hi Ladies! I have been MIA from the boards for the last little bit. Life has been very busy and crazy for the last few months! I have been following the board and just been catching up on the posts. We are also getting married on April 17, 2012 and I can't tell you how frustrated and dissapointed I am to here that Ileana is no longer with the resort. Originally I started planning with Yamina, then Ileana, then Gustavo, then back with Ileana. Now to find out she is gone is so frustrating!!! Mostly because we already had arranged for some things and made special arrangments and everytime I start working with someone new I have to reconfirm everything! To be honest if the deals and arrangments that I had with the others are not honoured with the new coordinator (I have emails to prove everything) I will be very upset and have a big problem with the resort. The other problem is that with only two months to go I need to start getting some answers to my questions, and it seems like now I never can get those answers! Plus it worries me that what if the new coordinators or managers quit before the wedding or take over and are so overwhelmed that our weddings suffer. It is just a lot of added stress now to a process I already find very stressful and frustrating!

                     

                    What would have been nice is for the resort to send the brides/grooms out emails letting us know what is going on and provide us with the new contact email for our new contact at the resort insteading of just not hearing back from anyone and then finding out it is because they no longer work there at the resort from this board! That would have eased my mind a bit but I guess that is asking for to much!

                      When we went to visit the resort we thought there wasn't a bottle opener in the room. It took us a day or two to realize that it is near the sink in the bathroom attached to the wall. I've never seen an opener like that but wanted to let everyone know since it is so easy to miss.
