      Ok girlies I have a question:

       

      I ordered starfish for my escort/place cards for the reception tables.  Well when they showed up, I was pretty surprised they smelt fishy....OMG...they were REAL!!   Ok, totally not expected but now I am wondering if Customs will accept them (if found).  They are pretty small (2-3 inches) but I am not sure if it is on the prohibited list.  I would be pretty screwed if I had to throw them all away.

       

      I know they say you cannot bring shells, but I am assuming that is real shells, not manufactured shells - or do they care?  I baught a pretty large starfish statue from Kohls (clearly manufactured) and a big manufactured shell which I am assuming are ok.

       

      I tried to google but I couldnt find anything specific....does anyone know?

        hmm..they are wildlife, so usually they are not allowed.  However u can smug them in, because they don't check everyone at the Cancun airport. You can also spreadout the risk, like each of your close relatives carry a few of them for you.  Just bring spare paper place card for Plan B.

          Hey girls -

           

          I was a Royal Cancun bride back in May... I have a question for those past and present brides.

           

          My friend is having a wedding there in 2012. I know the whole schpell about the outside vendor crap and she's trying to avoid this. My husband is going to be her photographer/guest... however you want to put that. Do you think they'd try to charge her the fee for him even though you could technically say he's a guest? Has anyone does this where their friend/guest is a "vendor" whether it's photog or anything?

           

          Thanks yall!

            Stacy,

             

            If he is staying at one of the REAL Resorts it shouldn't be a problem at all!  If he is a guest at the hotel and at the wedding, there wouldn't be a vendor fee.  This is what I am doing!

                  Ya it is kind of hit or miss with this unfortunetly. If you wrap them really well in something and like Pretty Pig said scatter them the chances are less. But I would consider what happens if you do get stopped and they get  confiscated? Whats plan B just in case :)

                    I brought 60 starfish with me and had no problems. But I really think it all depends if you are stopped by customs or not. I used them for decorations on the tables so my attitude was if they get confiscated they get confiscated but luckily they did not. Good luck!
