hey Ladies,

 

We leave in 16 days for Mexico and we are sooooo excited. I feel like I still have so much to do, but I am confident that when I have my appointment when I arrive everything will be sorted out. I really want to do maracas as guest favors, and I feel it only makes sense to buy them in Mexico. I know that I can probably get these in Playa del carmen, but I was wondering if anyone has been to Puerto morelos and knows if that is something we would be able to find there. OR did anyone else do maracas and can tell me where to get them? I am also unsure of center pieces at this point. I asked what the resort had to offer and what they sent was floral arrangements and they were quite pricy for the size and i didn't love them. I didn't want to have to bring anything with me as I already have quite a bit to bring. Did anyone get anything down there? If so what did you do?

 

Thanks so much!

I did mini-maracas as favors, but we brought them with us. I ordered plain wood ones from Etsy, then painted them myself and added the message tags. We took a day trip to Playa, and I'm sure you can find some there. I don't know about Puerto Morelos. From what I could tell driving through on shuttles, it's not much of a tourist town. I wouldn't recommend looking there. Here is how the maracas turned out:

 

700

 

I also did nothing for centerpieces, because frankly we didn't want to pay for them. We set up the tables in a square instead of rounds, and with all the glassware and dishes, we didn't miss centerpieces. OCT did bring set up my bouquet, added candles and sprinkled gems without charging us, which was very nice. This is how it looked:

Happy to answer any other questions you have!
