    And something else to think about, ladies....depending on if you want to go to the expense (which you'll likely spend money taking them regardless), but most wedding coordinators seem to be ok with couples shipping things down ahead of time. Depending on weight or whatever, that may be more feasible for some than others in terms of expense. But it is something to think about. Saves you a lot of hassle at the airport leaving during an already stressful (but happy)time.

      I think I will see how much Discount Mugs charges to ship samples to Canada, if it's still fairly reasonable I will order some samples from there, there are 2 or 3 styles I really like! I can get them with the white imprint area and then Aqua blue writing which would be my colours! Hooray! If Samples arent an option for me I am just going to decide on one and order soon! I will post pics once I have them! :)

      When requesting the samples from their website do it in the section where you can actually write in your request! Instead of $5 a piece you get them all for $5! (Thanks for the heads up on that!)

          Ooohh Tami! Those are too cute! I've been trying to decide what type of mug, cup, etc I want to get with no success so far, but I really like those. I was originally leaning toward a stadium cup, but I like the idea of having a lid.

            Foxytv - I really like those.

            Are you shipping these ahead of time or bringing them with you?

              I requested samples of 5 different style mugs and this mug in several different colors -- and they sent me ALL OF THEM (one sample each) for $5.95. This mug style was our favorite -- as well as this color but they have a TON of colors in this style.

              I also checked this style at several different websites and Discount Mugs is by far the most inexpensive.

                I was planning on making travel mugs for the OOT bags, too. I am worried about luggage space & I don't want to spend the money to ship stuff, so I'll probably just do the tumbler cups. They will fit inside each other & will take up less space.

                  Scroll down a few posts & you will see Susan's travel mugs. They turned out really cute! I think you would call them aqua. They are also stuffed with wedding favors.

                    We are taking them with us. We'll just pay for the extra baggage and ship them in the box they are delivered to us in.

                    We've been told NOT to pre-ship to the DR -- so you ladies marrying in Jamaica, Mexico and other places are lucky!

                    They are also delivered in their own individual boxes, so I will likely add colored ribbon to the mugs and attach a hang tag with each person's name and have them sitting at a separate table from where they will pick up their OOT bags so it appears they're getting even more "goodies".
