    Just a thought...I would use a beach towel with pretty much anything written/embroidered on it. (As long as its appropriate!) I don't think a beach towel is something that your guests wouldn't use in the future...I think you should put whatever you want on it!! I probably wouldnt put a 3 ft monogram or anything, but something small and tasteful will be great, personalized or not. Hope that helps!

      Velour is a lot better to embroider. Terry towels can get a lot of pulls in them in a machine. Also from everyday use the terry towels don't last as long the can get pulls easily and it runs across the whole towel. Sort of like pantyhose. When you get a runner in your stocking. But velour towels don't do that. One side of the towel is sort of like a terry towel with little hoops but the embroidered side is real smooth and makes the towel look a lot richer. And when it comes to embroidering them they get no pulls and look great. Hope this helps you.

                  I would think that a iron on would be better for a bathing suit. Reason being a bathing suit is very stretchy material. When I put any material on my machine I have to stretch it to make it tight. Bathing suit material gets weaker while it is stretched out. I would hate to take a chance with my machine to make holes in that kind of material. Especially for your honeymoon. But here's an idea. I can do beach cover-ups. I do, do a lot of strapless beach cover-ups. Popular sayings brides have done are "Taken" on the but or just married on the front. Check the link below for pics. If your interested.
