      Morgan-

      I just came across your cups. I have been looking for some type of cup or mug for my OOT bags. They turned out really cute. Great Job.

          OK just as a huge heads up this a STUPID STUPID question. But what exactly are the cups for (obviouly for their yummy drinks) but are they just going to ask the bartender to fill these up instead of regular glasses. I have seen a bunch of water bottles and stuff to and just wondering what the deal was behind it. I love the idea and would love to do them.... just dont know the method behind the madness!

            AIs tend to have small cups. Kind of like when all you can eat buffets have small plates. They think it will make you drink less. So if you give your guests a big cup they can make less trips to the bar. It's also fun for them to all look like a team.

              Just want to vouch for the durability of writing on these types of cups...When I was in college 10+ years ago (ouch!) my roommates used to decorate/personalize these cups as our drinking cups (I always had soda! hehehe), well, believe it or not, through many different moves, I still have my special 21st birthday cup from them. A little of the paint has come off a tad but 90% of it is still there! So maybe the guests will be able to bring them back on your 10th anniversary celebration too! hehehe

                That would be funny. I just wanted them to last the weekend, but now I want to see them 50 years from now full of champagne toasting to our anniversary :)

                  Hey Morgan,

                  thanks for the inspiration! I couldn't fit travel mugs into my budget so I got these cups at Target last weekend (50cents each) and bought some rub-ons to put everyone's first initial on their cup. I still want to put a palm tree on the other side but haven't found a rub-on yet. The guys get the white and orange and the girls get the light pink or dark pink.
                  Sorry pic is so big... can't seem to resize it...also can't get siggy any bigger GRRRRRRRRR

                    You are a fab "DIY BUDGET BRIDE" I wish I could do a project inexpensively, some how I find a way to turn something simple into a very expensive thing! The cups look great and will fill up nicely with some fun cocktails!

                      That was almost my old title under my name. After a series of cheap ideas I changed my title to "DIY bride on a budget." My budget is making me creative :)
