    We have a naturals beauty product location in our city called Tiber River and they will make customized labels on lip balms, lotions, etc.
    We plan on having an open house the week before we leave, that way everyone has their mug for the first day! (and I don't have to pack them all in my luggage :)
    This is EXACTLY what I am looking for for our wedding favours - where can I get them??!! I would like to engrave them too - maybe you bought them on-line? please let me know!

      Hi Latina!
      I ordered from www.leedsworld.ca but off a rep in our city (Winnipeg), my fi has a company he uses for personalized business stuff (mugs, calendars, etc). Not sure if you can order right off their website but it you see something you like, phone or email and maybe they can find someone in your city.
      Hope this helps!

I was wondering about maybe shipping them to everyone a week before the wedding but didn't know if that would be tacky...my family who lives around us I could give out at Christmas next year as we're going to be getting married January 11.....I've been arguing with myself over this for a month!
        I don't think it is tacky...send it with a note saying we are so excited to share our wedding adventure with you...or something like that. People will know you have enough stuff to transport. We have about 3 guests who are out of province & country so I will bring theirs with us.
        Another reason for sending it early is we want to include some info on the hotel & possible excursions...good stuff that people might want to read before they get there, especially our guests who have never been to Mexico before.
        I would ship it with more than a week to spare...you know how the post office can be, especially around the holidays!
        Hope this helps & Happy Planning!!

          We did starfish wine bottle stoppers. Its not so unique, but a lot of people have had great success and response from them.
          Just a thought....good luck

                We are also doing a cD and are getting married in Mexico! You seem very ahead of the game considering your wedding is before mine and I am not quite there yet! Ahhh! Anyway do you have some recommended site for mexican songs or mariachi songs?

                Let me know!

The other is a personalized CD that I made of some of my favorite spanish songs. I created the label with our photo, placed it in a blue cd pocket and put that inside a ecru metalic petals that matches everythign else on the table (placecards, table numbers & menus) with our logo and tied iwth a blue ribbon.
                      what do you mean by "a ecru metalic petals".....Are you using a hard case for your Cd idea?
