Traveling with Freeze dried petals???

Recommended Posts

Okay my question is for anyone that has traveled with Freeze dried petals. Have you be aloud to go thur customs with they or do they count that as a plant? I am not sure how this would work since it is just the petals. Another would be how well did the petals hold up? Any information would be great!!

 

 

Thanks,

Jenn

I purchased my freezedried petals from flyboynaturals.com. I ordered 60 cups and put them in gallon sized ziplock bags. I put one in my carry on, one in my suitcase, and one in my mom's suitcase, hoping that if one was confiscated I would still have some. Honestly, I don't know if they are considered plants. I didn't claim them on my customs form though. On one of the bags I even went at far to write "fake petals" on the bag. They all got there safe and sound. My carry on was searched but the petals were on the bottom and they didn't even go that far. One bag went in the flower girl's bucket to be used down the aisle and a second bag was used for the toss (17 guests). We didn't need the third bag and I brought it home and used it the decorate tables at my AHR.

 

I paid $60 with shipping for them and thought it was well worth it. It was way more expensive at the resort for a small bag. They looked fresh right through till my AHR a week after we returned too.

Thanks so much, i have heard of others getting their taken away. i think i might try and bring them down as well as the resort is quoting $200 for down the aisle.
