    Hi Ladies... I wanted to share some info with everyone.

    My sisters had a wonderful surprise bridal fiesta for me and they gave out these beautiful maracas (one per guest) as the favor. I think I am going to order some smaller ones as favors for my wedding since they looked so nice...and....they say "Mexico" on them.

    I called the vendor and there is no way to get specific colors but for the price you can't beat it: $1.95 per pair if you order over 12 pairs.

    Here is the link -
    Amols' Specialty - Catalog - Traditional Maracas

    I can't figure out how to post the pic but if you're interested let me know I can email you the pic of the ones from my shower. You'll be able to see all the colors. My sisters tied little tags on them that said" "Shake it High, Shake it low...Kirk and Kim are getting married in Mexico"!

    PS: The site also has cute little sombreros to place on sauce bottles- the 2.5 inch ones are super cheap. I am using them to put on mini tequila bottles.

    Hope this info helps!

    xoxo

        So fantastic!! Thank you, heart!!! I was so wanting to do maracas, but they were pretty pricey. Those are perfect!

              I got mini-maracas for the kids at my reception, from Oriental trading company. They have a beach-sunset theme painted on them and came out to about 1$ each (min order of 12).
              Just figured this would be helpful for non-mexico brides lol.

                That is an adorable saying...your sister is so creative. We were thinking of having maracas as a favor too but were not sure whether to buy them there or not...but we were thinking of adding a tag "shake for a kiss."

                  Awesome find. I cannot decide if I want to buy them here and bring them down or go to the markets and find them down there. This is one of my favorite ideas..shake for a kiss. Can't wait to hear all the shakin'!
