Recommended Posts

Our wedding is coming up in December and I will keep everyone posted on my maracas shopping spree on 5th Avenue. smile67.gif

I will be sure to share whatever info. I get back from them.
Awesome! Thanks ChristinaP.

I know it would make more sense to get them when you are down there, but my resort is far from PDC and I don't want to feel stressed like, I have to go to PDC to buy my wedding favours! I'd rather have everything organised before and take an extra suitcase down. Or in the case of Mishka designs... I belive they deliver directly to the resort. I am sure I won't be able to afford those...

OK, so not as bad as I expected...

 

Definitely cheaper to get them down there, but this also offers a little less stress, and the option to personalize. Here is the info I received from Mishka. Sorry if it is a little long, I am going to copy and paste the e-mail from her...

 

 

Maracas start at $4.50 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 $5.00 (total order) for each additional color and $.25 per maraca for line of text (i.e. $.25 for date, $.25 for location, $.25 for names).

 

Fans start at $5.50 usd for a simple design, two-tone fan. The fan example we have on the internet is actually a $6.75 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 at least two months to fulfill the order - we can do rush orders, although that, of course, costs extra.

 

Shipping to the Mayan Riviera for 20-30 maracas is around $40.00 usd. Shipping to Cabo is a little more expensive - for 20-30 maracas it's around $60 usd. We can ship to the States, but unfortunately it costs more to ship than it does to order the maracas and most of our clients aren't interested in paying so much postage. If you think you might still be interested, please let me know. We normally ship two weeks from the date of your wedding, in order to ensure it arrives on time BUT also so that the resort is looking for the shipment and that your wedding is current in their minds wink.gif.

 

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

I totally hear you! I am trying to be so cost effective...our resort is even further from Playa than yours!

Oh boy.... yeah, I can't afford the Mishka Designs... It would cost me over $200 just for favours... can't justify it although they are fantastic. I think I may order the cheap ones from a couple pages ago and get creative... I'd love to add our wedding date and names to them, but we'll see. I am not so crafty, although I really could be if I put my mind to it. I just don't have the patience.

I was just in Playa for our site visit and I found them for $1.00 for a pair on 5th avenue. Don't go into the "bigger" store on 5th we found that they don't care how many you are buying, they sell them for $1.00 each, the smaller places you can bargain with. So 80 maracas were $40.00

Hi Tanya,

 

Can you tell us which "smaller" stores you went to and where they are located in Playa del Carmen? Thanks!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
