Bringing stuff into Cabo- Help!

Recommended Posts

We brought 4 bags checked and 4 carry ons between the 2 of us. I sorted the bagas and made a file of the reciept copies for each. they only thing they wanted to look at after x ray was the koozies and showed them the reciept folder she BARELY looked at it, opend and then closed and sent us on our way, No problems!

 

We did have one bag that was over $200 but I just faked a receipt for the pashminas to make them less and it was never even questioned.

Well I made some research my self in my visit to Villa del Arco to start with my planning. My WC told couple terrible stories of shipping items. For example, previous bride sent the sand for the ceremony, shells, a printer, etc. She ended up paying like 300 USD taxes, and they took out the sand, because nothing dusty is legal to be ship.

 

Other bride lost her whole package because she send things that were considered medicine and needed special import permissions: chapsticks, antibactirial gel, sunblock.

 

So the advice is to brind everything in the plane. She also advised me to spread the favors and decoration among my closest guests, like my parents , etc. to avoid the extra bag fee.

 

Hope it helps!! I'll tell you in three weeks how it goes.

I just got back from Cabo and had no issues going through customs. I had a couple of suitcases filled of beach bags and flip flops and there were no questions asked. Also, with my luck I got a red light and had to have my bags checked but had no issues! I think you will be fine.

Yes, that is a good idea, my best friend who get married in Puerto Vallarta give me a tip, just in case divide all your items like the wedding favors, shells, candles, etc with your closer family and friends, but keep the most important and fragil things with you...like the champagne flutes, rings, wedding dress, etc.

I brought all of my stuff for decorations, oot bags, etc. I had 6 total suitcases, but I split them amongst my family members and it wasn't an issue. My dad and brothers even got stopped and searched at customs with some of my suitcases and they didn't question a thing.

As others have said, it'd be safer to bring things with you rather than ship. We ended up upgrading our tickets to first class to get extra baggage allowance. Then we loaded up all our OOT stuff and favors into a giant Home Depot box with bubble wrap, and taped it all up. At the airport, we checked it no problem, then picked it up when we landed in Mexico. It was pretty smooth and I'd recommend doing this if you can. Also, if you dont want to squish your dress you can bring that in a garment bag separately and there is place in the plane closet for that.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • 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.
