    Does anyone have any advice on where to find cute custom made maracas? I love the ones by Mishka that so many have raved about, however with the shipping it gets really expensive. I only need about 35 for my May wedding in Playa del Carmen. Mishka will charge an additional $60 in shipping beyond the $4.50 price for each maraca (that includes 2 lines of text). Any advice would be great!

      I know that these aren't custom, but maybe you can paint them to fit your style.

      I bought 25 pair and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them and they were afordable!

        Wow! That's a steal! I have been going back and forth about getting maracas, but for that price, it's hard to say no. Thanks for sharing!

              They are going to have a tag that says "Shake at the kiss".

              I love them and am very happy with the quality! :) They are big too!

                  I read somewhere on the forum that you can find a TON of maracas on 5th in Playa Del Carmen. There are a lot of shops on the strip and should have maracas there. If I find the thread I will post it. I think the person said they were around a $1 each...

                      Thank you so much! I didn't know what we could find easily down there.
