    That's a really good point. Thanks for the tip!

      22 oz is the same size that we get at bar & grill-type-restaurants. We didn't want a huge cup. It's not insulated so we didn't want the drink to get hot. These are more standard everyday size people will use at home. Considerably bigger than the 8 oz cups they give at the bar at our hotel. Guess everyone has their own expectation.

      Sorry to hear that they weren't the right size for you.  I'm sure people will still appreciate them regardless though.

        I hope so, they are still super cute and pretty sturdy. Definitely better than nothing!

        Hey if anything you can incorporate them into some fun group drinking game.  :shots:  That'd be a lot of fun too!

          Momgowdy made a good point. 22oz is almost 3 serving sizes. I think much bigger than that and the drinks would melt or warm whether or not the cups are insulated.

            Let me just say that this thread has been incredibly helpful! It definitely made me rethink some of the items going into our OOT bags.

             

            Now, I hope I can return the favor:

             

            For anyone wanting to do hand sanitizers, B&BW is having an awesome sale. They're $1 each right now, plus you can get $10 off an order of $30 or more AND free shipping on an order for more than $50. No need to enter a coupon code - they did it automatically for me when I ordered mine last night and it saved me almost $20. I got 70 PocketBacs for $64 including tax.

             

            Also, I would STRONGLY recommend using Ebates.com - not just for OOT bags, but for online shopping in general, really. It's free to use, and if you are ordering a lot of stuff online, it can really help out. Before you go to any website, check Ebates.com first to see if they partner with that website. If they do, then go to that store's website through Ebates and it will keep track of what you buy. You'll then get a percentage back in the form of a check that they send out once every few months. They also show you all of the coupon codes you can use before you buy. So if you're buying stuff for your OOT bags or new clothes for the trip, it all adds up.

             

            I hope this helps some of you! I'm a month out from my wedding - so excited!!

              I'm struggling to find individual servings of Pepto for an affordable price.  Anyone have any suggestions?
