    I'm looking for maracas carved with our name and wedding date. Does anyone know where I can find them? I've researched the party favor ones and they are a little cheesy... I've seen some on other destination wedding planner sites but I'm looking for a direct contact. Any ideas?

      I remember reading that a bride got them in Mexico, but they were painted with each guests name I believe. She just found a vendor selling them in a market or something. I think it may have been in a review she posted.

        Has anyone been able to find someone that personalizes maracas?

            This link is wonderful! Maracas, maracas, maracas! I just hope that they are relatively inexpensive! Thank you so much for linking me to Mishka and I will post any news that I get on pricing etc. I've forwarded this link to my WC in Mexico to deal directly with her! Thanks again!

                  Did she give you a price yet?

                    Yes she did send me pricing.
                    Here is what she sent to me:
                    "Maracas start at $3.50 usd each for a simple design, two-tone maraca. An example of that would be Lacy Romance or White Flowers in my blog. It's $.50 for each additional color and $.25 for line of text (i.e. $.25 for date, $.25 for location, $.25 for names)."

                      Thanks! She emailed me as well with some other information that I thought I would share for the other girls interested, as well as a direct contact for her, amishkadesigns@yahoo.com:

                      Hello Madelyn! Congratulations and thank you for emailing!

                      Maracas start at $3.50 usd each for a simple design, two-tone maraca. An example of that would be Lacy Romance or White Flowers in my blog. It's $.50 for each additional color and $.25 for line of text (i.e. $.25 for date, $.25 for location, $.25 for names). So, the maraca you are asking about (the burned image) is a medium-design - the small is $4.00 usd per maraca and the large is $5.50 usd per maraca. With the names, date and place - we can't burn those on the small maracas - there isn't enough room - but the larger maraca would be $6.25 usd. You could do tags (instead of having the names burned on) and tags cost $.35 per tag.

                      Fans start at $4.50 usd for a simple design, two-tone fan. The fan example we have on the internet is actually a $5.75 design.

                      You can either tell me what your theme is OR you can send me your invites, STDS, website, what have you and tell me a little bit about your decor and I can recommend a few ideas. We need about a month to fulfill the order - although we can do rush orders.

                      We do ship to Puerto Morales, but I'm not sure how much it would be - we would need to check.

                      We also do shake me tags (for the maracas), name tags, place cards, escort cards and menus :):).

                      Any other questions or comments, please let me know!!

                      warmest regards,
                      mishka
