    Hello dear brides and coordinators! A BIG SHOUT out goes to Jen who was married (by me, no less!) April 1st and to Megan who tied the knot April 3rd ... and nearly got an accidental belated April Fool's joke!


    Copper Lillies
    We met with Jen when she came down on an earlier trip - a real down-to-earth bride with an easy smile! She sent us her very own design board as an example of what she would like to see on her maracas.

    After talking about it, we discussed with Jen that we were a little worried that the tone of copper she picked might not be the right tone on a maraca - so we switched the background color to ivory and the design to copper and this is how it turned out!

    Talavera April Fools
    Megan really liked the talavera example we had on created before for our photo shoot but we wanted to do something a little different. I asked Omar to create a different pattern but didn't like the look of it so I asked him to do something based on the talavera design example we had used before. I normally don't have time to send maraca photos to brides before I send them off, because we work right up to the due date. But this time I took a picture and sent it to Megan - only to figure out that the colors were wrong! Omar had mixed-up two of the orders!! Luckily, Megan caught the mistake (and was sweet enough to say she would accept them the way they were - but I would have none of that - her wedding colors were turquoise blue NOT turquoise green and that's a big difference!).

    While this is not something I would ever like to happen again, I do think the added color gave a better definition to her maracas and they turned out better than they would have the first time around!

    I've been working on some beautiful designs for an end of April/beg of May wedding and end of May wedding but I promise I do still have the design board I promised eons ago and will post that next week as we have a small break in the favor congo line!

        Beautiful! I love them! Mishka, how much lead time do you need from brides who want to order maracas from you?

          Thanks guys :). Normally we need about 4-6 weeks lead time on maracas. Although, I probably should post somewhere that we are closed the month of May - no more maracas or wedding designs - full up! :):).

          Which reminds me - any brides who are just now scrambling for May you need to get things booked and deposited ASAP - most of the coordinators I know are booked and, if they are booked, that means all the good vendors are getting booked too.

            I know! I normally won't perform a ceremony AND do a huppah and maracas (and/or a wedding design), but Jen was so nice and laid-back and asked so nicely that I couldn't say no .
