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:

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:

* including a CD and stamped mailer so that people could send you all the digital photos they took (cost on this is maybe $2 each with 88 cent postage, so it may be better to just hand those out to guests who are taking a lot of pictures)

* adding a Mexico postcard (stamped) for people to send to their loved ones back home (maybe $1 each including ~ 70 cent international stamp)

* including a US postcard for guests to fill out with their best wedding memory and send to you after you're home

 

happy planning, ladies! : )

hey ladies - had an idea here that I don't think anyone mentioned earlier. what about including inexpensive digital watches in the OOT bags? every time I travel out of the country, I can't use my cell phone, and since I don't wear a watch, I never know what time it is.

 

I found some watches on eBay for $1 - $2 each. not only are they available in lots of colors, they're WATERPROOF. they also have some that glow and kid sizes.

 

just wanted to share in case anyone is working on bags now. : )

no problem! I should have also mentioned to search for "3 ATM" waterproof-ness. you can wash your hands with something that's 1 ATM and not worry. 3 ATM is waterproof to 3 meter depths. I think if we didn't get the strongly waterproof watches, guests would forget and go swimming with them. or maybe that's just me, the non-watch wearer. ; )

hey so for all of those canadian brides out there i just ordered 16 oz create your own mugs from oriental trading. they were on sale for $10 for 6 of them. i bought 24 and it cost me $40. I then found a cupon code that gave me $10 off of shipping on all orders over $39. so i only paid $15 for shipping. that means that i bought the mugs for $2.30 each and i get to make the insets myself as what ever i want.
