      Nice job and clearly a lot of work with all the DIY projects!  Everything turned out great! Where did you order the straws from and what did you use as labels?  If you don't mind me asking, what was in the orange signature drink?

                  I actually brought over empty tequila bottles(so I don't have to deal with the weight and spilling or breakage) and the wedding coordinators got me bottles of tequilas from the resort bar to fill them up. no cost:) very nice of them.

                  Just one thing though, the labels were printed on avery clear label sheets, they looked very nice, but the moment a drop of tequila got on them..the words came right off!!!we had to be so careful when we were filling them up..:) hope that helps.

                    I didn't put that picture in the first post:P I printed the labels on white sticker paper with my all in one canon printer at home:) slow printer but it does the job. The only things I couldnt print at home was the pearl card stock. I do those at staples. but I couldn't go to the staples near my house because their machines are not calibrated right and the color looks very off..lol..OCD kicking off.. I actually travelled to a further staples:P
