    Hey everyone... okay soo I received my quote today for personalized beach towels from cottonfruit.com. I could only get a minimum of 24. They are 30x60 quoted at 8.25 each and 25 for shipping so that takes me to around 220... do you think I should go for it? I really want to but FI thinks I'm crazy to buy beach towels for everyone. I have no issue with taking these down because my three bridesmaids and mom and FI are all flying down together so everyones taking a bag :) I jus wanna know what you guys think?

    heres the design... (I got a quote for yellow and orange)

      I was going to get some to put in my OOT bags, but our hotel offers beach towels for the pools and we even ran down to the ocean with them, the staff didn't mind at all. The towels that I fell in love with (they were our colors and had the seahorses that is sort of a theme for our wedding) were 18.00 each. I decided against it because that was more money then I was hoping to spend and more than likely wouldn't even be used.

          In my opinion, that's still a lot to spend on a towel...is there a company around where you live that does embroidery? You could buy towels on sale somewhere like Target for much cheaper. I really want to do towels, too, but the price can get a little ridiculous--and like my fiance pointed out to me--guests know where they're headed and will likely bring their own towels. Men--always killing the fun! Lol...good luck...your design is really cute though!!

                I think these are great. I ended up doing mugs because I didn't want to drag a bunch of towels with us and we are AI so our resort will provide towels, but if you have no issue getting them down there I think this is a great touch. Also remember your guests will need room to bring them home though Im a tight packer so I hardly ever can bring back large items like that. Just don't ever leave the room for them!

                  First...they are adorable! I agree with previous post to try for a local company. I had a friend plan a group trip she purchased towels from Marshalls and took to a local shop. I can't remember the price but it was VERY reasonable.

                    thanks ladies... Jess you have a good point... i didnt even think about them getting the towels back... I was looking at shot glassess too which are alot cheaper and may be a better idea since we ARE stayin at an AI resort and towels will be there. I've been look for embroidered companies around here but I havent had ne luck.... so I dunno... i guess I'll sleep on it lol
