Thank you! I ended up deciding on the same, can't just give 1 mug per couple. But isn't anyone worried about the luggage weight with all the extra stuff they are bring? If so how are you guys dealing with it? any idea's?

We just packed extra suitcases and had our parents/family check them at the airport (we were allowed 2 checked baggages per person). I made sure to give them the 2 suitcases with the mugs, and the other with all of the OOT bag items (so they knew what they had just in case they ran into any problems going through customs). I think in total we ended up taking 9 suitcases down with us, so we had 5 of our family members check the extras.

and that is exactly what I plan on doing, but I do have the worry the most of my guest may pack like I do (I always over pack, I know your allowed 2 luggage per person but it still has to be under the weigh limit which is between 42 to 50 lbs) I can pack that in one suit case for a 7 day stay lol. But I am sure no one else is crazy like me, so it'll be find. Glad I'm not the only one who will pond extra luggage off to guest! :)

UPDATE!!

 

So, this is what I finally decided to use on the back side of our OOT mugs, with our original logo (same one as in my siggy!) on the front:

 

Enjoy the tropical breeze,

Raise your glasses with ease,

As two hearts join as one,

Shout out “Cheers!" and have fun...

 

Just thought I'd pass it along, since it's sort of like one I posted before, but with 2 new lines for those of you looking for something a little bit longer! wink.gif

We went for a generic design for our mugs because I really want my guests to use them again! Almost like they were a souvenior they bought themselves down south.

 

On Orange Stainless Mugs it says "Punta Cana", has a graphic of a palm tree, and underneath says "Party in Paradise!" I'll definitely post pictures once them come in!

We also used "to have and to hold and keep your drink cold" but instead of imprinting them on the mugs, I had it printed on small cards and then tied them to each mug. On the front, I used a simple starfish logo I found on microsoft clip art. The reason we kept it simple (same as our OOT bag - no personalised wedding logo) was because most people will reuse items like that IF they aren't personalised. Of course, it all depends on your crowd, and I knew that mine was partial to the plainer stuff. You can kind of see the logo in this picture. BTW, everyone used these! I was pleasantly surprised. In fact, it's been 16 months, and I still use mine to hold my morning coffee as I commute to work. I just love them, and I'm sure you guys and your guests will love the ones you've chosen too! (These are from discount mugs - pricey with duty and shipping, but comparable to canadian vendors).

    • 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?
