    I don't think the rules are different - She was prepared to have it confiscated and told them that it was her bridal bouquet and they let her through - might jsut depend on your customs official..

    depends on the airport xray people too who do your bags, but i would not advise anyone to count on being let through. here in chicago, customs agents are extremely strict about what you can and cant have -- i go back and forth enough between here and mexico and i have seen so many people get many things confiscated. even if you are a bride, i would NOT count on the customs people being nice and letting you keep it.

      Maura is right. You cannot bring plants, flowers, etc...back to the US.

      Actually, I used to fly Air Tahiti Nui from LA to Paris and they used to give us a flower in the flight but they have stopped a couple of years ago because US customs did not want the airline to have flowers while in Transit in LA.

      As I stated in another post, you can try but they will throw it away if they find it.

            I brought back Shawn's Bout. My bouquet was destroyed from the heat and the salt water... but his bout was pretty good. We went through the Cancun airport just fine and the Chicago airport just fine. They didn't care at all. With that said, it was one single rose. I'm pretty sure if I had my whole bouquet in there they might have said something!

              I just got back from Jamaica a few weeks ago and I brought my bouquet, his bout. , stem of orchids, red rose and my cake.

              I carried the cake in a box and the flowers were in my carry-on. I even told customs I had flowers and they let me go through without any problem.
