Ladies,

 

I just ordered 3 sets of maracas (light blue, dark blue and pink) as I wanted to get a true picture of the colors.  They will be here on Friday.  How's that for turn-a-round.  I'll take a picture and post once received.

No problem!  That is a great turn around time and I am sure you won't be disappointed!  This is a great site and I would be lost without it!

Ladies,

 

As promised here are two pictures of the maracas that I received from Amsols today.  I ordered these on Tuesday and received them on Friday.  Not a bad turnaround time at all.  The colors are ordered were the Pink, Light Blue and Bright Blue.  The "bright blue" is almost like a navy color but a shade or two lighter.  I like the pink but my  only turn-off is that the Light blue is a lot wider than the other two and I don't care for the design on it.  That's me though.  Hopefully this will help others.photo.JPG

I was feeling the same way and then I came across these and I just fell in love with them.  This way we know what they look like and we will be happy with them!

Thank you so much for this!!!!!  My colors are the same, and I just emailed them with this pic asking for the same.  Question:  why did you choose the 8" over the 6"?  I am just worried they are going to be big for the plate (I am going to lay them on each guests plate at the reception) and that 6" would be easier to travel with the 52 I have to bring!

?
:)

I purchased maracas from windy city novelties, but I want to paint over them to personalize and change the colors.  Has anyone else done this and if so...what kind of paint did you use and did you sand them down first to get the shiny paint off the maraca first?? 

Thanks for any suggestions!

    • 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?
