Have you tried Dollar Tree for your tumblers? Another bride on here said she raided her local stores for about 40 I think. There is also a website called Discount Mugs or something like that for tumblers too. Hope that helps!

This website has great, personalized drinkware for very reasonable prices and they are running deals all the time. I have ordered koozies and other things through them several times. Koozies were super cheap and you are able to print on both sides for the same price. http://www.discountmugs.com/

    Be aware that a kraft paper bag can't double for a pool bag since it will get mushy and rip if wet. That's why I went with VistaPrint bags too...guests loved them and used them daily at the pool for their things and brought them on excursions etc. Highly recommend.

      Yeah I wasn't planning on the guest using them as a pool bag. I was thinking of using a more economical bag so that I can splurge on useful contents. However if I can get a good deal on the VP bags then its a win-win!

        Also, does anyone have the dinner options available so I can see?

        On a separate note, for brides that are doing OOT bags, where did you get the totes from and what type of things did you include? Also where did you purchase the contents from?

        We purchased ours from cheaptotes.com for something ridiclious like 88 cents each. We're going to make a stencil and use fabric paint to put something on to it. I had them shipped to my brother (they didn't ship to Canada) and he opened the box and they shipped us 60 bags, instead of the 30 we ordered (we only paid for 30!). Here are some of the stencil ideas I've bookmarked:

          I am looking to order plastic tumbler type cups for guests to be able to refill drinks/ etc in their own glass (and be able to have larger drinks!).  Has anyone bought these for their OOT bags? If so... where did you find them?  I was hoping to be able to have each one personalized if possible. 

          We purchased stainless steel travel mugs from discountmugs.com and had etsy seller DavetDesigns make up some custom stickers for us. We found the stickers were much cheaper than having the company print right on the mugs. I'll post a photo once I make one up (next weekend!)

          Hi!

           

          I found great cups from 'Save a Cup' - I thought they were reasonably priced.

           

          :)

          Hello all!

           

          Just thought I would say hello! I am getting married at the Grand Sirenis, but then my fiance and I are going to the Now Jade for a honeymoon - it's an absolutely gorgeous resort. Can't wait to hang out on the hammocks! Anyways, happy wedding planning :)

            Are the stickers waterproof?  This sounds like a good idea.

              Yes, apparently they are! There's quite a few brides from other threads on this forum who have ordered stickers from them with very positive reviews. I haven't seen them yet (had them shipped to the USA) but I'll be picking them up next weekend! I had tried to price it out for a DIY project. I realized it would probably cost me a ton in supplies and then I'd spend hours fumbling with my printer making sure they were all lined up properly. 50 - 3" stickers cost us $30 on etsy.

               

              We bought the "To have and to hold, to keep your drink cold" ones. Heheheh
