Dumb question, how you u fasten the charm 'ring' up? tie a knot in the string stuff?
We used more of a fishing line rather than a string and we just tied them on, with many knots so that they wouldn't come apart (that was DH's job, he definitely wasn't interested in beading!)

I bought Sharpie markers for writing on plastic so I can just write everyones name on their cup. I have done a tester and with a lot of scratching it will come off but I was going to bring the pens along anyway for touch ups. Although now that I've seen the charm idea I'm really loving that and might have to switch it up.

You girls are all so creative! The tags are such a great idea, super cute.

 

I can't remember which bride it was, but one of the BDW girls actually wrote on the side of each with waterproof marker from Micheals. It was really cute, and seemed pretty easy (so long as you have decent writing skills, which I don't lol)

 

What about printing "logo stickers" on waterproof sticker paper and putting them on each mug?

Fantastic ideas! I hadnt even thought about people getting their mugs mixed up, but I'll be using one of these ideas now for sure. Yet another reason to LOVE the BDW forum!

What I have decided to do is make "luggage tags" with everyones name on one side and underneath the name i put maid of honor, best man, brides cousin etc so ppl will have an easier time rembereing who is who without always asking. and on the other side im putting "here for the wedding of . ___ and the date. then laminating them and attatching them with carabiners (the metal thingys...sorry not a very good description). once i finish them i will upload pics.

They are called Sharpie paint pens. It's an oil based paint marker so I don't know how different that is from the metallic pens. I can't remember who it was but they used them on their mugs to personalize them. I bought a tester mug to try them on and also so I could let the paint cure and hopefully not scratch as much. It's been on there for over a month now and if I scratch at it it will come off but I have to scratch pretty hard. Honestly the only problem I see doing them this way is having to write on the mugs. It's really hard to write nicely on a rounded piece of plastic...LOL

p.s. If you can't find them in a store like me I bought mine on ebay :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
