          Even if you are stopped they shouldnt give you a problem. Just let them know its for a wedding there. Also you dont have to declare anything when you are going to the resort you only declare what you are brining back. I have heard from other brides to take receipts with you when traveling just in case.

          I will make sure to keep my reciepts. Thanks for the advice. I do know you cannot take organic items with you across the borders (ie. fruits, plants, flowers, sand, etc.) So just keep that in mind when buying your OOT bag items.

              We had our wedding rings in the boxes (in our carry on) and the receipts with them. We had no problems what so ever, and we even had them ask to look through our luggage. We had to open our suitcases, they kinda rooted around a little, I simply told them we were getting married, and then they smiled and told us to close our bags. I think if they were more worried about customs, that the bills would have cleared up any issues in terms of us proving we are not trying to sell this stuff, but just had it for our wedding.

              Good luck.

                  I downloaded a copy of the customs form that you fill out upon entry to Mexico, and the "Declare if you are Bringing" section specifically asks if you have "Live animals; food products; plants; flowers or fruits; chemical, pharmaceutical or biological products of agricultural use, etc..."

                   

                  Did you check "YES" if you brought any of these items? If so, what happened?

                   

                  I understand that "company" packaged goods are fine to bring in (I'm bringing in candy and snacks), and I'm also bringing dried flowers. To top all of that off I'm also bringing a petite professional speaker with me (also an item listed on the "Declare if you are Bringing"). Not to mention, I'm bringing other Welcome bag items and lots of wedding decorations. I have travelled all over the world and gone through customs a million times (including Tibet to China, and even accidentally brought home hash from Amsterdam  whoops) But I have never travelled with this much stuff that is questionable...especially to a country like Mexico. 

                   

                  I operate on a ask for forgiveness before permission attitude, but I'm bringing so much obviously questionable stuff, I'm afraid of getting in trouble. Thoughts? Advice?
