I wanted to know how the service was, and was pricing reasonable. Thanks!

Hi all, you can google ms word receipt templates. The limit is $300 so please watch what you bring. We got a green light and they still checked the bags so that light system is not a good indicator if you will or won't get checked. I was grilled about my stuff and thank god I had the receipts or some customs official would be enjoying my beach bags and bath salts right now.

Honey do you just need receipts for the items for the welcome bags or everything you bring for the wedding? Cause i have gifts for the girls to do you think i need receipts for those also?

I listed out our menu (I mixed and matched from the options), pasted pictures of the bouquet and centerpieces I wanted, etc. I'll be sure to print this document out and have it with me when I meet with my WC. I'm also creating a binder where I'll put the word document, receipts and emails from certain vendors we've hired and all email correspondence with the resort as back-up.
I did the same thing - it was super helpful. Up until then I had been keeping everything in separate documents. It was so much easier to use hers as a template to keep everything straight! For those of you looking for a template, cutierosie attached hers to her review in the reviews section.

Tiffani - I don't think anyone has used Zuniga recently. However, if you go way back in this thread, I believe there were a few brides that did. As I recall, they were very happy with them and their prices.

Angela and ladies - in the Riviera Maya, Cancun & surrounding areas section of the forum (where this thread is), there are a few threads about customs and receipts. The best one I think is called Mexican Customs - an effort to gather all information in one thread - or something like that.

YES, it only counts for items you have in bulk - it's really only for things they would consider you possibly 'reselling'. However, medicines (for those of you doing hangover kits) do not count towards your $300 total. Matt took $300 worth of stuff in his bags, and I took $300 worth of stuff in mine. Our OOT bags, favors, and decorations all counted towards our total. I had four bridesmaids - I didn't bring receipts for their stuff - I just packed it all separately so it didn't look like I was bringing multiples of the same item.

I had three bags, a carry on and two wedding dresses, and I got a green light. Matt had three bags and two carry ons. He got a red light, but only because you could see the maracas in the xray machine. Customs checked every maraca for drugs. While they were checking the maracas, they asked to see our receipts. They really didn't even do any adding or anything, just kind of glanced them over. They were actually very nice.

I would definitely recommend you check out the threads on this if you have questions still - they are really informative!

We negotiated down from $2,000 (just over) to $1,400 for 4 hours of DJ, lighting system (the package number 1) and a slideshow of pictures.

 

We are using the free dinner option as our welcome dinner the night before the wedding at the Arrecifes restaurant.

 

Tiffani/Angela, we are using Zuniga for paper lanterns. I was going to buy them and string them myself when we got down to MP and have the staff hang them up but we are hiring Zuniga to do all of that. I don't know what I was thinking...there's no way I could've brought all of those down with me.

 

My word document is a complete mess right now!! I'm still trying to finalize certain things and have a lot of it still highlighted. As Nibsmom said, cutierosie attached hers to her review. I would use hers as a guide because it is cleaned up and has responses from the WC for each question. Mine doesn't yet.

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
