      Thanks so much for the tip. I would love glass ones so everyone will keep them and take them home, but plastic does seem like the practical choice as far as getting them all there in our luggage. Our OOT bag list is getting pretty long and we are having more guests than expected! I don't know how we will get it all there!

I sort of assumed they were glass and was dissappointed at first, but then thought in Cuba, plastic was going to do better anyhow.

        I am loving the idea of adding so many personal touches to your OOT bags. My FI and I met in a similar situation so these are some great ideas to share our lives with everyone! Also, I know my guests will love a good drinking game! haha

So we're printing out the rules of the game on our wedding letter head and laminating them, and including an explaination of why the game is special. My fi also worked at a casino for a long time, so we're getting playing cards from that casino to include in the bags. Fi is now a police officer so we're think adding in some fake hand cuffs might be fun. We're also including pool floaties and bubba kegs - also reminiscent of that fateful spring break!

              Dasha, please let me know how these turn out. I saw these too and thought about getting them. I already ordered some elsewhere, but I'd just like to know for future reference.

                I gave personalized beach towels a few years back to my brother and sister in law to be. Not having a huge budget, I bought a set from a beach resort surf shop at end of season, and had my mom embroider them on her sewing machine. Total cost, $5 per towel and they looked amazing!

                 

                You just have to find someone with an embroidery sewing machine. The store that my mom bought her machine from caters to these cute ladies who LOVE sewing, and are always working on quilts and demo-ing stuff. They would probably get a huge kick out of helping with a wedding. If you have the time and patience, I'd call around and get some price quotes!

                  I thought about this too but I'm afraid of the chocolate melting in the tropics!

                      So I got the can cozies from Oriental trading and they are pretty cheply made. A little fraying here and there. I did pay only $5 for 5o of them, but they are not my star item. The hibiscus flower beach bags on the other hand look great!
