    Just an FYI if you are worried about bringing certain things with you, keep in mind in most large cities in Mexico there is a Walmart, Sams Club, Costco...etc. Just in case you don't want to buy all the little advil packets and such in the states.

      Great point Jessica. I would just caution that it's hard to know what they carry at those stores in Mexico and they may carry advil, but not individual packets, or they may be a lot more expensive down there. I used the Costco in Cabo for snacks and bottled water to add to welcome bags.

        Thanks girls. I thought about that but just didn't want to be running around when I get there to get all this done. I rather have everything so all I have to do is put the bags together. I was worried about the advil and such but hopefully everything will be ok!

          Does anyone know about Jamaica?? I won't have a lot of people with me to split up the bags Receipts? Never heard of that! I guess I will have to call TA or airline. Are you guys talking about your carry ons?? Are you putting your OOT stuff in them or your normal lugggage? CONFUSED

              I was told by another Jamaican bride to bring receipts if you are bringing lots of wedding stuff to Jamaica. It doesn't matter if the luggage is checked or carry on Customs can ask for the receipts if you have lots of items. I think they want to make sure that you pay taxes on them if you are going to sell them in the country. I know that I was told by my TA that I could not send things to her via mail because it would get held up in Customs. I wanted to mail some of this junk and not have to take it all in suitcases. I know that it is expensive to mail stuff but I was going for convenience. Anyway now we have given some items to guests and we are taking 2 carry ons (and my dress) in addition to 4 suitcases. I put the receipts in a ziploc bag in my carry on. I don't have a receipt for everything, but I do have quite a few. I will let everyone know how it went when I get back.

                sooooo for all my OOT stuff I need to show them receipts or at least have them ready?? I have never heard of this?? They will go through our luggage that is checked not carry on? Is there a price limit as to how much you can bring?

                    For Mexico brides - I just got married in July, and the drugs and bandaids and stuff for my OOT bags did NOT count towards my total. I was told that even though they were in individual packets, they didn't count. I know a few other MP brides who were married in July and August were told the same thing!

                    For Jamaica brides - I feel like it should say something on the customs website if you have any kind of restriction! I'm sorry, I have no idea!

                      For Mexico brides, the limit is $300 and if asked, receipts must be provided for proof.

                      Here is a link to the Declaration form we had to fill out and hand in at the Mexican airport.
                      Declaration Form

                      Note: they way they scanned the document, 2 is at the beginning and 1 is on the second page!
