I had receipts and a note that said all of the junk was for my wedding, but for some reason they didn't believe me. They said there was no way that the cameras cost me $6 and the hand sanitizer cost $1 for 3. So strange. They called over a supervisor and talked for almost 15 minutes. While I sat there, DH grabbed all of the other luggage and got it out of customs as quickly as possible. But then, they let me go with no reason other than a snide remark about me making up costs.

I'm assuming they eventually let you pass but what suggestions do you have for getting the camera's past them easily without them making a huge deal about them?
I love love love giving ornaments for Christmas time weddings. I would say make it as hard as possible to find them. Like wrap them, put them in a sealed box, put that box in your luggage. The stuff that I had packaged like that, they didn't go through.
