If he gets green have him grab ALL of the luggage but maybe leave one with your clothes. You will act as if this is your luggage and go through the same procedure. Most of the international airports are a mess each time a flight arrives and you can do this pretty easy. Just go over the system with your family or FH.
That doesn't sound too bad. FH and I will fly out solo so we will have to get our plan in place...I will have to make sure this is one of the conversations he actually listens too!!! monkey.gif

We get to the inspection table and there are like 3 people working. So 2 of them start on our bags. The girl who was inspecting the duffle bag was on her cell phone and kind of halfway paying attention anyway. She did pick up things like the neck safes, playing cards, dominoes, etc. and look at them a second. The inspector next to her looked at it too, then asked me if I was getting married. I said yes and they zipped our stuff up and let us go.

That was it, no hassle. Maybe we were lucky? Someone once mentioned being in Cabo I think and being asked for receipts to verify the value of the items. I don't know how common that is, or if Cabo is more stringent than PV, but we had no problems whatsoever.

Leaving PV they inspect your luggage again, and I had some leftover trinkets that the lady inspecting thought were cute. She called another lady over to look at them and I asked her in Spanish if they had kids and wanted them. They did so we gave them 2 bags of stuff and lightened our load at the same time :o)
Yeah I guess it's just luck of the draw...I think it's great you both benefitted at the end!!! :)

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
