@victoriasalv we are giving out the OOT bags at the welcome reception and just doing maracas as favors at the tables.  Since everyone is traveling we didn't want to give anything that would be too difficult to take back.

@victoriasalv - We are giving out welcome/gift bags at the welcome party. We ordered (from Mexico) custom paper fans for the ceremony (will be on the chairs) and custom maracas for the reception (will be on the plates). I think it's totally personal preference. Some people don't even do welcome bags.

@JenniferH114 - You're right! I always was thinking (in the states) I would do a donation in the guests names to a charity. Since I felt those add up quick and not sure if I could think of something people would actually KEEP! I love the fan idea. And the Maracas. Can I ask where you ordered the fans/maracas from?

 

Also @Sabes44 - I think I'm leaning towards maracas also! Where did you get yours?

 

Oh and to all of you - Did you plan your wedding playlist? Are you using your iPhone?

@victoriasalv - We ordered maracas, sandal fans and papel picado (for the welcome party, which is a fiesta theme) from Maracas Mexico out of Puerto Vallarta. They will ship everything right to Jessica at the resort.

@JenniferH114  if you don't mind, can i ask which design and how much did they charge you per maracas?


side note: what design and flavor did you girls pick for your wedding cake? I've been looking all over pinterest to get some inspiration.

@Giocivs88 - We did a mix of starfish and palm trees using three different colors total (two colors per maraca) and then all the custom writing. They were $5 each. Shipping to the resort for our whole order is $100.

 

They do recommend ordering two months in advance, just FYI. :)

@Giocivs88 - Did your RSVP date pass already? If so, I would follow up. There are 30 of us, including bride and groom, so I ordered 32 maracas and fans.

 

It's probably worth ordering a couple extras, just in case, so if it's only a couple of people you are waiting on you could probably place an order.

@Giocivs88 - I think you'll be fine placing an order in a few weeks. I would suggest reaching out to Maracas Mexico now, so they know you are interested. Then you can get your design in order and give your final count in a few weeks. They were very helpful and replied to emails within a day.
