    Which one lasts longer? Any pro's or cons? I don't know anything about flowers, so i definetly need help on this one. I'm getting married in Jamaica and I want to bring some flowers with me, but I'm not sure how they will hold up against the humidity and travel. Any suggestions?? Thanks!!!

      you can't take dried ones with you. You'd have to buy them there.

        why is that Morgan. I wouldn't be able to get those through customs? Could I take the silk ones......and if so, how long do they last?

          yes, you can't take them through customs. Silk ones would last a long time. Just like silk flowers. As long as they are in a box they wouldn't get dusty or tattered & should last a really long time.

                My freeze dried rose petals were taken away during a customs search upon arrival in Mexico...I don't know what the rules are about taking "Plants" aka freeze dried rose petals to Jamaica are though... I was bummed when they took mine away

                  OMG!!!! Are you serious! I would be so upset if this happens. I would just get them at the resort,but they are so darn expensive!!

                    My sister's friend got married in Jamaica and they brought over tons of fresh flowers (her mom is a florist) and kept them in the fridge until the wedding day and everything turned out fine. That being said, I don't know if they got lucky and customs didn't check, or if it was just okay to bring them. You'll have to check their customs regulations just to be sure.
