    Hi fellow brides! I just had a question for those who have brought maracas (or are thinking of bring maracas) to Mexico. I found some cheap maracas that I would like to bring down for the ceremony (shake at the kiss). However, it kind of worries me putting 10-15 in my suitcase because every time my suitcase is lifted, they will make a sound. Even if I pack them tight, they will still make noise every time they move. I am worried this will make my bag look suspicious or something and I will have trouble either in Canada or Mexico. Can anyone lend me their thoughts on this?

     

    Thanks!
