Since we are both at the Royal the same weekend, do you think she would combine them for us to save on shipping?? Just an idea! :)

Actually, the shipping was closer to $115 for 46 maracas. I know it's expensive - but sometimes the local shipping carrier can't ship them in a timely manner and we have to use DHL or FedEx which costs an arm and a leg - things can change on a whim here and I have to be prepared for it - favors aren't any fun if they aren't on time :):) I wish we had a USPS here, but we don't .... and I seriously doubt any of you would want your maracas arriving by bicycle (when I lived in Mexico City the Mexican mail carrier delivered via bicycle!) :):).

I didn't see this one! :) Of course I wouldn't have a problem doing that! BUT, the shipping won't go down - it will just be about the same - they charge based on a) size of the box and B) weight and c) distance. Believe me, I don't like the shipping prices anymore than you do - it's bad for business and annoying - but I have to go with private shipping to be assured that the maracas will get there and to have a tracking number. I never let my family send me anything unless it's DHL or FedEx because, otherwise, chances are you won't get it - or you might get it - next year!

If you could find a PV bride willing to bring the maracas up to the states and ship them to you - well, that would be a ton cheaper. :):):)

I was just about to spend $245 on 25 customer Mishka's Maracas...they are so beautiful. But I think my fiance has about had it with all my extra spending!! good tip and I will bring down a silver marker to personalize!  $25 sounds much better.

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

Yikes Mischka went up? They're not that much cheaper in Mexico, but they probably won't go with your wedding colors. You could definitely bargain but remember playa del carmen is very touristic and I didn't find the prices to be cheap. Just as affordable in the airport or hotel.
