    I was thinking of doing beach towels with our monogram, but my main concern is lugging 40+ with us. Im already thinking I will have enough stuff to bring with me. At least I have some time to decide. I think its a wonderful idea though.

      Careful, most resorts I have seen do not allow you to bring in outside alcohol. You may also have trouble getting it there depending on the sizes, and customs official.

      Everything else sounds great!

        -and the guests are going to have to find room in their suitcases to lug the beach towels home

        What do we think? Yeah or nay on the beach towels?
        We're doing beach towels. Already have 50 of them embroidered and 10 on deck just in case for late RSVPs...

        We got the towels on sale at Target for $4 each - 10% for signing up for Target card. Found a local place to embroider them, and she was super reasonable (about $3 per towel...) She ships all over the place...

        We decided to just do these, and tie a ribbon around them and put a tag saying welcome or something like that... Instead of a bag, and they look like they cost way more than they did!

        In response to your man:
        - people won't need them, but it's nice to have everyone stand out as part of the wedding party and they'll probably be nicer/softer...
        - taking 50-60 will be a challenge, but I'm dropping about half of them at home with my mom when I'm home for the bachelor party later this month. Some fo the girls may take a handful each for us as well.
        - It doesn't take much room to bring a towel or two home. The issue is getting ALL of ttem down there, but it can be done if you want it to...

          FYI, I think the Dreams provided sunscreen is only SPF 8 and I couldn't figure out if it was waterproof or not.

            Skip the towels. This aounds like too much to carry.
