The robes are from Sierra Trading Post ? Great Deals. Great Brands. I believe. We took them somewhere in town to have them embroidered.

Hi ladies, I bought towels over the weekend to embroider and give to our guests, and it was CHEAPER than what you think it is....

 

I bought the towels at Kohls for $2.70 a piece (* 11 towels = $32.15 w/ tax)

Brought them to get embroidered today for $5.00 a piece ($55.00 w/ tax)

Total cost for project = 87.15

 

The towels I bought are really nice, and I just bought them on sale. The lady I brought them to embroider does work for the company that I'm at and I have a working relationship with her. She did give me a bit of a deal, but I don't think embroidery is as expensive as you think it is, especially if you have someone do it locally.

 

We decided to do the towels because a) we're not having a lot of people and B) we're not doing OOT bags or anything else, so we thought this would be a nice gesture. However, I don't think this is the way to go if you're having a lot of guests or if you can't find a good deal. If you can find a way to have these done at a reasonable price then I would totally go for it, otherwise I would save the money.

Hey Shakara! I also was going to buy towels from cotton fruit and changed my mind last minute. Not only are you paying for the towel, you have to pay for shipping, the embroidery, and then all the extra suitcases it will take to get them there.

 

We opted out of them last minute and Im soo happy we did! We did OOT bags with cups and a hangover kit and other small things as special gifts to our guests and they loved them. I just thought $8 something for a towel was pricey. IMO!

 

Good luck!

My cousin gave out personalized towels and they were a big hit!  People are still using them over a year later.  I'm not sure if she ordered them from cotton fruit, but they were really nice.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
