        Thanks so much for bumping this back! I had seen stuff about the receipts but didn't really think about how big a deal it could be. So great!!

          Great question, I was wondering about this as the cost of petal confetti at the hotel is so high.

          Also, do I really need to worry about this customs stuff as we are not doing oot bags?

            Customs wasn't that bad for me...& we had TONS of bags. I made reciepts, but my printer doesn't work and I never got a chance to print them out at work, so that was a waste.
            They did look in my bag with all of the OOT things in it (we had it all in one BIG suitcase), but they didn't say one word.
            Unless you plan on taking something that is really expensive and LOOKS really expensive, I wouldn't worry too much.
            I was more nervous about customs than anything else and I was so worked up over it, but I didn't need to be :) Don't stress over it Ladies, Everything will be ok

              I would like to know this answer too..they're charging a small bag of petals for $20! SO FREAKIN' RIDICULOUS!

                THank you!
                I have the same question! My coordinator said that we should be fine, as long as we FedEx the stuff down. And nothing can be made in China. But I'm still a little worried. Any advice?

                    I am curious about the freeze dried petals as well- I love the pictures with petals everywhere but not really worth the cost.

                      What do you mean by "nothing can be made in china?".... isn't mostly everything made in china? Ha-ha!!!

                      I was told as long as I had "receipts" I would be fine. So, I'm making some fake receipts for the items I don't have receipts for. Hopefully that works!
