    DIY Water Bottles (they have a message to guests on one side, logo in the middle and marriage facts on the other side). Bought water at Costco in Cabo (much more expensive than it is here) and made my own labels printed on water resistant labels from Labelsbythesheet.com. Large ones went in Welcome bags and small are for the cocktail and reception if people want water (we did 180 bottles)

              I actually made the logo myself. I searched hearts on clipart and found the heart (it was green) and I changed it to match my pantones. Let me know if you need help. I am not on as much anymore due to crunch time, our wedding party (co-ed shower) next weekend and all that good stuff.
              Good Luck
