    I am really worried about taking my flowers as a carry on in a shopping bag. Does anyone know how strict they would be?
    I have to take my flowers and the bridesmaids flowers.

      if it's silk flowers, I can't imagine there being a problem.. only if they were real.

        With the TSA, one never knows. I hate to say that, but really, I've had some good agents, and some @$$-holes. I think if you are nice, and look for a "good" agent before you get in line, you will probably be OK.

          I just got an email from TSA and they basically are saying the same thing...it depends on the officer that checks my bags.
          I hope they are nice.

          Thanks

            I've learned the same thing as far as TSA goes. Just smile :) eye contact, say hello&how are you ---you know, play the game. It's crap but it works!!
            I'm confident you will be just fine!

                I had no problem with mine. I had them in a small carryon bag. I called TSA before and they have no official policy, so it's up to the individual screener. With all of the other wedding stuff, I think they are a little lenient.

                If you have a bouquet jewel, you should probably pack it just to be safe. The wires in the flowers are hidden & covered in plastic, not just a big needle looking thing, LOL

                THe only bag they searched was my glass centerpieces because the candles showed up opaque on the x-ray so they had to check them out.
