Has anyone bought maracas for their guests? Does anyone know of a good place to get them?

 

Thanks, as always for your help!

Along time ago we bought some in Mexico....they were super cheap. But, this was in one of the border towns. I wonder if Anny can get a price for you.

 

Is Anny back yet? Hmmm!

Oriental Trading has a large assortment of maracas. These can be personalized, and are reasonably priced.

When I photographed Lenita's wedding at Moon Palace - they had really cheap maracas in the gift shop. I couldn't believe how cheap everything was in there b/c usually resort gift shops are so high.

 

If you are making a trip down before the wedding - maybe you can pick some up. Of course...I don't know where your wedding is! lol

I am going to wait and go to a market in Mexico to find them... simply because they will be very bulky and there are other things I would rather take from here.

We bought some at the store in front of Cabo Wabo. I believe we spent $140 for 20 sets. We brought them home and I wrote on them with a sharpie our names and date of the wedding. Very simple. They were easy to travel back, but I totally understand about wanting to buy them there. I underestimated what a pain bringing all of the stuff for the guest bags was going to be.

Thanks everyone. Maggie is going to Tulum this Sunday so I think I'll tell her to look down there. It sounds like she'll do better there then the internet. I will let you know what she finds.

We're also interested to hear, so please do keep us posted on here. Can't imagine doing anythign but purchasing down there. We already have too much stuff to take down there. We're taking embroidered beach towels for each guest. Going to be great, but quite the hassle...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
