    We did personalized matches for our wedding and had no problems with TSA. We checked them in. I don't know if we were just lucky, but we had about 200 match books & match boxes and we got them all to Mexico without a problem.

    We also had no problems with customs in Mexico. We did have receipts for peace of mind, but we really didn't need them. I think when they see a bride coming through with a dress in hand, they are pretty comfortable with all of the OOT bags, decorations, etc. I'm sure they see it all the time!

              A bride here said that she wanted to take sparklers but her mom who works for the airlines told her no they are not allowed.

                Sparklers are definitely not allowed, I wouldn't even risk this one!

                  does anyone know about coming back from Mexico and bringing maracas? I'm thinking about buying a bunch while I'm down there to use as favours for my AHR, I would split them up and have my mom, MIL, SIL, etc take 10 or so each in their suitcase, but do you know if this would be a problem?

                    I don't think it'll be a problem to bring back maracas, especially when they're split up between a few different people. When you re-enter Canada there is a certain dollar amount that each person can claim (I think around $600 - it was really late when I got in last night with the slip!!) for the total of all purchases made, so considering they're gifts and probably won't cost that much I think you'll be okay.
