I went to a place called Things Engraved and I paid a $10 set up fee then .90cents per letter... 

($67 for all the mugs in total) I figured the price was decient as I had considered buying a handheld engraver and trying to do it myself lol so the fact that it will be professional done by a mashine and not shakey handwriting works for me!  lol ... 

 

BUT right after I got home from dropping them off my grandfather told me the place he goes to get tropheys engraved would have done it cheaper for me..  So it is definately worth making some phone calls and seeing what pricing people are willing to give you :)  There are alot of smaller chain buisnesses that do engraving that I'm sure would be more then willing to do a bulk order and make a good deal with you just to get your service :)

I should have shopped around but I was too excited to get it done - Always my downfall hahaha

I can post a picture when I get them back if you like?

I wasn't fussy about the colors, as we are not giving a mug to everyone coming, just for the guys in the wedding party and a couple more of groom's friends. I also wanted to get them engraved but the couple of engravers I called had never even heard of bubba mugs so I just didn't want to take the time to lug them in and be told they couldn't do it... and I shipped them to the hotel a couple months ago and I was coming up on my shipping date (i.e. trip to the states).

 

That was going to be it! Until a fellow BDW member posted that she had 7 turquoise bubba travel/slimmer style mugs for sale and I have already actually bought about three seperate things from this lady so I knew she wouldn't let me down - I bought them all for my bridesmaids and my Mom/FMIL. Except I'm not sure about getting one for my junior bridesmaid.. mostly because there are 8 of us and 7 cups and I kinda want one.. lol

 

I DID put the tags on them (I got it on here somewhere, something like I hope you enjoy this bubba mug to use by the pool, etc etc) which I thought were worded really nicely and again, the creativity of the brides on this website never ceases to amaze me.

 

Buying some cruise ship themed decorations from BuyCostumes.com tomorrow unless we call the party store in town and they have the scene setters I want! :)

I love all the DIY projects on this site!!  you are right,  the creativity and possibilities are endless..  Id be lost without BDW!  I got the idea for my boarding pass invites here ( which were a huge hit ) and saved LOTS making them myself and the template and ideas for my wedding week survival kits which im sure the guests will adore.

I origionally wanted some kind of waterproof sticker for my  mugs but gave up on finding them and went the engraving route in hopes most of the group will want them for future use..  We never put bridesmaid/groomsmen or anything like that just their names so they were more opt to use them in the future...

( Also found from another bride on this wonderful site ) I'm attaching a cardstock tag to the handle of each mug with raffia that will be removable with the saying

"To Have And To Hold & To Keep Your Drink Cold!"

just cause I think its cute and does incorperate the wedding into the present lol but can be taken off before use :P

Thats a great site you mentioned!  I just found a few cute palmtree items!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
