    I really want Ostrich feathers to be incorporated in my centre pieces, however, my fiance is unsure because he does not know if we can bring the feathers into Mexico or not.

    Does anyone know if we can?

      The ferret thread had listed what you can and cannot bring into Mexico. I don't think I saw ostrich feathers on there.

          Awesome, thanks ladies. I didn't see anything about ostrich feathers so I think it will be okay. But, just to be certain, I'll ask the wedding co-ordinator when I finally get ahold of her.

          another resource other than the WC is to call your local mexican consulate and ask them if they can find out for you.

            They will be like "this lady is crazy." haha so random. "Hi. Can I bring ostrich feathers to your country?"

            Please do call, then let us know how they react.

              oh shut up you guys. you have no idea! sometimes they are a really good resource! my FI deals with them all the time for work, and sometimes people there are useless, but sometimes they are awesome about getting answers if they dont know.

                LoL- it is a good idea.

                I just wish that my wedding co-ordinator would get back to me. She hasn't even "confirmed" my wedding date yet. Ugh....
