    I think we will have btwn 40 and 50 maybe. I just want to keep it simple and stress free.

    Do you thing those plastic beer mugs are too cheesey?

      I mean, they could be a PITA to get down there... kind of bulky. Koozies may be easier.

        plastic beer mugs are cute but yes - PITA! Koozies can squish at least

          I mean I think if I just do a beer cup or koozie with some advil in cute packaging as a welcome gift it will be wayyy more useful and no one has to bring stuff home.

          I am doing pashminas for the girls and golf tees for the men at the reception.

          I think it will be plenty.
          Hey guys! I'm concerned about lugging all this stuff down there too - I know there are bunch of threads on the value of bringing everything vs. trying to ship anything. Have you guys looked into it? I wanted to do OOT bags too, but I'm thinking more about doing beach towels for everyone (again, will have to lug stuff down, but I can get some of my family and bridesmaids to pack some in their luggage too (I think). I got beach bags, robes, flip flops and some other stuff for my 'maids and I am definitely shipping them their stuff before the wedding!

          I'm still trying to figure out how I get stuff back home after the wedding since my FI and I are going on our honeymoon from Mexico!

            Yeah, the mulitple threads on the cabo forum all have negative feedback about shipping stuff. One girls stuff did not even arrive in time for her wedding and never came back to her after either.

            I either check it with myself, friends and family or it is not coming. KWIM?

              Erika- I think that is plenty! Just stuff all those things like the advil in the cup... super cute! I just can't imagine lugging all that stuff down there... bags and all.

              Where are you getting your pashminas?

                My mom's friend is a flight attendant and she picked them up in China for $5 each.

                  Hey girl- I know on some other forums/threads have said that because of customs it can cost almost $400!!! So most of the girls I know don't ship, they just pay the extra in luggage fees.

                      There was a thread in the OOT section where they listed a bunch of pashmina vendors.
