    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:

    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:

    And this one tells how she did it & what materials she used:

    Morgan did these as well. Take a look at her planning thread:
    You are a sweetie!! Thank you for doing that :) Everyone's OOT Bag's look great and I picked up a few more ideas from those threads!! Now, I hope I have enough room in my suitcases Haha!!

    Quick question: Did anyone buy bottles of Advil, Motrin, Pepto Pills and put them in personalized pill boxes or anything? Do you think people will use them if they are opened like that?

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.
        THANKS!!! Great advice!!! I think that is what I'll try to do..hopefully everyone will cooperate!:)
        Someone on here posted a site for THE CUTEST personalized flip flops...I really want to put them in the OOT bag!!! Now, I think I might! :)

            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.

            Which website or company did you order your travel mugs from?

                Thanks for the info about the bags. I was actually just trying to figure that out. Oriental Trading has some personalized paper gift bags so I'm wondering if that might be a better idea that my original plan of the canvas tote bags...

                  This thread is awesome! I was going a bit crazy buying a little of this and that and after reading this really didn't need everything I bought. I think I will keep it a minimum of t's, flip flops, puzzle book, and one towel.

                      Thanks for the tips and sorry to hear about the mini beach ball incidents, that is exactly why I didn't even contemplate getting them lol, I'm always the target and I have horrible aim so I can never return the favor!
