    Does anyone know of a place in the cancun area where you can get your wedding bouquet freeze dried? I found some places in Cali and Texas that I can next day air them to but I would like to have them done in Mexico to avoid the customs issues.

            I didn't realize you can do this, how does it come out, do they just look like dried flowers?? I'd love to do this, I really wanted to be able to keep my bouquet, to do something with it when I got home, if you find any information I'd love to hear about it!

              Here is what I found out... In the event that I can not find someone in Mexico to freeze dry the flowers I can import them next day air to the US. However, it is a possible PITA if anything goes wrong.

              USDA - Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) - Plant Health, Plant Protection and Quarantine

              Here are some of the sites I found in the US that I can send them too. (Its not cheap)
