    We ordered them from the person that we ordered the wedding invitiatons through and I don't know what company she uses. However, check out this link. http://www.crazyabou...6-or-22-oz.html I think their cups are the same price and you can get lids and straws if you want for cheap and they have way better clip art available than the company we ordered from. I think we could have saved ourselves the $45 we spent for the art if we would have used this company. We used a 22 oz stadium cup.

      Love this thread! It has been soo helpful!

       

      Sorry if this is a repeat question but I've been searching the thread and can't find a clear answer. Those that put bottled water in your OOT bags, how did you get it to your destination? Did you ship it? Buy it there? Specifically someplace like Mexico I have noo idea what the best way is to include this in my OOT bags - any ideas??

        We are going to Costco in Cabo, Mexico, to buy our food/beverage items, but we are not having personalized water bottles.  The Costco/Sam's Clubs offer guest passes in resort towns.

          thank you! will think about going to Costco or Walmart since I heard there may be one near Cancun which is closer to my resort..

           

          for those of you looking at Vistaprint, just happened to go on there today and everything is 50% and free shipping over $50 :)

                    Hey ladies! 

                     

                    I got the Dollar Tree Tumblers too. The price is right, but they do scratch/crack easily. We had to individually examine each one when buying them. I'm not expecting them to last forever, but hopefully they'll do for the 3-7 days that each guest uses them! 

                     

                    Anyway... for packing, I also bought some plain white tissue paper from Dollar Tree. Because they scratch easy, I didn't want to stack them directly one on top of the other. Instead, I put a third of a sheet of tissue paper between each cup, to protect both sides as they stack. This will make them easier to pull apart as well. I also wrapped the lids and straws in tissue paper. I stacked about 9 cups high, and they fit perfectly into my suitcase height-wise. I have 30 and they barely take up any space! 

                     

                    Excellent idea on the stacking! Thanks!

                      Be sure to bring receipts ladies.  You cannot bring more than $300 worth of "gifts" into Mexico per person.  I was stopped by customs and they went through both of my bags and my mom's bag.  They asked what the total value of the merchandise was in each bag.  They never asked me for my receipts, but I have heard of other brides who have had to produce them.  It was not stressful or a big deal since I was prepared with the receipts, but if I hadn't had them I probably would have been freaking out!  

                      Thanks for the Tip!
