    I am also curious to know about waterproof labels...because that's exactly what we have in mind but we want to make sure it will withstand the heat / water / LOTS of use. We're thinking about Bubba Kegs (midsize) with a clear label with our monogram on it. This way, people can also peel the logo off after the trip and use the bubba kegs...

    Are we on the same page with all of this? Please keep me posted...thanks :)

        We are having trouble finding some favors for the guys in our group? Any ideas on things they might use? We are doing koozies, snacks, and medicines for sure...

          I ordered my stickers for my mugs from zazzle. They are however white, not clear. I would buy some cheap clear labels and test them out.

            I had a hard time brain storming for ideas for the guys, too. In the end.....all of the guests got almost exactly the same OOT bags....(i.e. thank you letter, map, big-day timeline, local maps, custom-labeled water bottles, mini-sunscreen packets, snacks

            except...
            the ladies got tropical smelling lip balms and a cute pashmina I purchased locally
            and
            the boys got mini-liquor bottles, flavor-less lip balms, and flip flops
            Jocelynn and Shawn
            Got Maui'd on November 8,2008

                SDNative-I love the idea for mini liquor bottles. Do you, or any of you ladies, know the rules on putting the liquor bottles in your luggage? Will they let you take the bottles over to Mexico if you pack them in your checked luggage

                  I actually just went thru the stuff we have and realized I forgot a few things. First of all, we did one bag per party so if a couple was there, they got one bag with stuff for both. If it was a single guy or girl, they got one bag with just stuff for them. So the things that we gave:
                  pashminas
                  flip flops for everyone
                  and ball caps or visors
                  custom beer cozy's
                  votives (beach theme)
                  sunscreen
                  dramamine (boat to our wedding)
                  advil
                  water bottles (with our logo)
                  deck of cards
                  spanish book
                  brochure (vistaprint)

                  Probably a few more odds and ends that I am forgetting. People loved them though.

                      I think the drinks for dummies are a good idea... remember going to the all inclusive resorts and being clueless as what to order :P
