Tambourines?

Recommended Posts

FI and I were trying to think of something fun to put at each guests place for the reception.

 

We were at a friends house Sunday night and he took out his tambourine -- and we thought that would be a great idea.

 

Mini tambourines that have a tag atatched reading something like ...

 

"Forget about tapping your glass

We've got even more class.

If you want to see us kiss ...

just SHAKE THIS!!!"

These are the ones I've found for the least amount of money -- but they won't match any of our wedding colors (not that we really have a whole lot in the way of coordinating accent colors for the reception anyway).

 

(12) ASSORTED PLASTIC TAMBOURINES - 5.5" - NEW!!!! - eBay (item 150218207671 end time Feb-27-08 18:30:48 PST)

 

Click the image to open in full size.

 

Then they could use them whiel dancing or whatever (I'm sure it will be interesting once the drinks are flowing!)

 

Just wanting some feedback.

 

I know a lot of ladies have done the maracas, which makes sense in Mexico ... but I was thinkingit might not fit in the DR as well ... so if we were going to do something that didn't fit -- what better than friggin' tambourines? lol S&M.gif

Thanks! We came up with it together. I think I'll get a "kiss" lip imprint to stamp on each tag. lol cheer2.gif

The kissy stamp is a great idea! I did a wedding once where each guest got some type of instrument--tamborines, maracas, kazoos, etc. It was fun!

Omg Tami you have to do the tambourines! They are too cute and I've never seen anyone use them so that's even more special. If I were at your wedding you know I would be dancing around banging mine everywhere...haha Go for it!!

what about using maracas? Oriental trading has them for about $1 a piece. Or they have blank ones that you could customize (24 for $9.95) Your cute saying would still work!

I like the maracas, but it's so "Mexico" that I think I want to do something else. The tambourines I found are under $1 each, so they are even more affordable ... and I can use sticker monograms to put on the skin (if I have time...).

hahaha ... well bring it on, sista! Would love to see you there! :-) I think I've sold myself on the tambourines too! I was thinking about mixing it up w/ maracas, tambourines and rain sticks ... but keeping it simple will be easier, which is what I need right now! smile43.gif

Borrow away!

Also, there are "design your own" ocean drums that I found (similar to rain sticks) and if I had time, I would TOTALLY do those b/c they are called "ocean" drums ... hence the DW connection ... but I have zero free weekends between now and then so I think I have to stick with tambourines. I think they are cute too though and since it was my and FH idea ... that makes it even better! lol
