I have been looking over the OOT bag posts and have decided including cups is a must. The problem is, what type of cups? Which travel better?

 

Tumblers with lids and straws or stadium cups??

 

What are you using? What was your experience in getting them to your destination?

Great question…I am in the same boat. Definitely need these questions answered for me too!

Stadium cups are obviously a cheaper and easier to pack option... But for usefulness my pick is bubba mugs for sure... Though they can be pricy! A happy medium that many brides come to is a double wall, insulated cup. I love Tervis cups and would go that route in a heartbeat if I could get the price low enough but will likely go with something generic. The straw being used over and over with mixed cocktails is hard to clean... So a Tervis is more to my liking! A saver design waterproof sticker- and they are perfect!

Thanks! I didn't think about Tervis, that is a good idea if I can find them super cheap

If my budget was allowing I would have done bubba mugs for everyone.

My compromise was the tumbler cups with straws. I also like the stadium cup idea, which as said above fixes the dirty straw problem!    I think tumblers will work for some guests, and stadium cups for others - maybe think about what type of guests you have / what they drink.

 

My bubba has a straw and I still used it for every drink - even beer haha!

I did bubba's but I cut elsewhere. If you are interested in bubba's, go to their main website (shopbubba.com) as you can get them for way cheaper and if you order quite a few, they have a bulk discount :) That's what I did and it saved me quite a bit of money!

Hindsite I wish I sucked it up and did bubba's. But I do appreciate they are pricier. I think all options work -- it's more what fits your budget

It is but we also limited the cost of our OOT bags and what we were filling in them plus we opted out of favors. So it worked out :)

I'm planning on going all out on my oot but not doing favors.... I think my guests won't be miffed, since they will kind of be favors in themselves!
