    Justustwo,

    Have you posted any photos of your OOT bags. Did you get plain travel mugs or ones that were personalized?

      The mini-wallet used as a key card holder or for money
      The pashminas-the women loved them, especially for late nights in the lobby, on the beach & in restaurants for dinner.
      And yes, the travel mug was the biggest hit by far! Everywhere we went on the resort, my guests had their mugs. It was very convienent and well used at the bar!

      This is a GREAT thread! I'm working on my OOT bag stuff now.
      Just wondering, JUSTUSTWO, since you did the flip flops...how did you know what size to get everyone I really want to do the flip flops, but, we're having over 70 people and I can't figure out what sizes to get everyone!
      Any suggestions?

          I found a bunch of travel mugs at the dollar store and was thinking of just getting waterproof paper and printing our monogram and sticking them on there? Anyone else done this? Good/bad idea??

            Here are a few pics that I found from my planning thread. I did get personalized mugs. I see that the pics are kinda fuzzy so I'll include the link to the album on Shutterfly:

            Here's just the OOT bag which came out way better than the pic shows:

            And a picture of the first aid kit (which had the band aids, meds, chapstick & hand wipe packets) & personalized pens that we ordered as well (ignore the ceremony fans). I also must say that the personalized pens were a hit too.

              Definitly include band-aids - I didn't and ended up needing them and the resort was all out!! WTF!! Luckily my MIL had them - also no one really used our Spanish for Dummies books either but everyone did think they were funny!

                Good thread! I will be picking up extra motrin for my OTT bags.

                  Basically I had everyone's email address so I just sent out 1 email to everyone asking for their size in t-shirts & flip flops. I mean it may have taken the surprise out of what they would be getting but I really wanted to make sure that I had the correct sizes. It worked very well but then I only had 30 guests to do this for, not 70! But I don't think you'll have a problem.

                  If you do go this route, just make sure that the store that you are buying them from uses sizes in numbers as opposed to Small, Medium, Large. You don't want to ask your guest for sizes in #'s only to find that the store has them in S,M,L! I had to learn this the hard way! LOL
                  And also ask that they respond by a certain date so that you're prepared & only have to make 1 trip.

                  I also made sure to do this when the flip flops were on sale for 2 for $5 and the store manager gave me an extra discount since I bought so many.

                    Cute idea!

                    Thanks for this thread. I'm making my own English/Spanish books (or my mom, is). We did buy the suduku books, though.

                      A few BDW brides have bought travel cups & then personalized them with waterproof labels & markers.
                      They came out really cute. I would do a few as tests to see how well they hold up before you buy them in large quantities.

                      Here's a thread that I found that may give you some ideas:
                      http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t33350

                      I knew someone on here had done this before so I went looking for the thread & found it.
                      This thread has the pics of the mugs:

                      Morgan did these as well. Take a look at her planning thread:
