Freeze Dried Rose Petals

Recommended Posts

I brought freezedried petals to Mexico last month and didn't have any issues. They were perfect for our flower girl to throw on the aisle and then we did a petal toss after the ceremony. I ordered from flyboynaturals.com and got a great deal on one of their clearance packages.

 

As for customs, I don't know if they will let you bring them in. I put my petals in several ziplock bags and spread them throughout my luggage in between clothes. And I didn't declare them on the form. I guess I took my chances, but I got lucky.

I am now a Mrs!! The wedding was beautiful & the freeze dried petals worked perfectly for the aisle! I had no trouble getting them into Jamaica. They came to me in a large plastic bag which I just put in my suitcase. Some of the petals got a little broken from the airlines, but overall they were still in good shape. They did not fly away even though we were right on the sand in front of the ocean with a breeze. I can say that they were definately the way to go cost wise and they looked great.

I don't know about Mexico, but check with your TA or WC. You can also check the internet. Just search for Mexico customs regulations or contact Mexico's embassy in the US. Same thing for any other country.
Did you end up bringing the freeze dried petals into Jamaica? Did everything go OK? I just ordered a sample of 4 different colors from petalgarden.com. It's only $2 for a sample and then they include a $5 off coupon so you end up saving $3 if you do place an order wtih them. I heard on another blog that the bride ordered samples from both flyboynaturals.com and petalgarden and that petalgarden was way better quality. I was going to go with flyboy just because their site looks so nice, but they don't even have the color I want, hot pink, right now. I am glad I did a little more research and found out about this other place. I will let you know how they turn out!

my freeze dried rose petals were confiscated by customs when travelling to Mexico. they are definitely NOT ALLOWED. the customs dog sniffed them out immediately. such a bummer.
