Has anyone ordered churros at their reception?
Thanks again...101 days until I get married!!!!!!
We bought our maracas from Amols and were able to get them all in one colour. The duty was pretty steep though. Also, it was a big pain to get our 30 large pairs down to Mexico. We had to split them up between our parents and bridal party because they took up a lot of space. Overall, the guests really loved them. After a while, the shaking started to get a bit annoying, especially when my M-I-L was drunk and shaking them all the time....lol. We made sure that the wording on our maraca card at the very end said "the bride and groom kiss tonight" but it didn't specify to kiss each other. After we had a few kisses, we started to go out to our guests and gave them kisses on the cheek. The kids were hiding from us at this point. If you have a larger group, you may want to buy them there, especially with luggage restrictions. I think they sold for 55 pesos a pair in the hotel and you may be able to get them cheaper elsewhere. With the duty, the maracas probably cost about the same price that they were in the hotel. One maraca per person probably would have been better for us, instead of two. Or buying the smallest size available. In the end, it was fun for everyone.
