Lori...this is what I was thinking....I will have to check into it. This might be a case where folks simply check them with no issue since it seems as you ladies say other brides have done it. Thanks!!

I was researching this topic a short while ago and taking notes because I was interested in taking sparklers and matchboxes to Mexico, too. I do not remember all the websites I perused, but somewhere along the line I came to the conclusion that the answer would be "NO."
Here is what I have written down in my research notes: The following flammable items are NOT permitted to be packed in your checked baggage: Matches, torches, lighter fluid, fireworks, sparklers, and spray paint. Gel-type candles are okay to pack in checked bags only.
I don't know if you are allowed to pack matchboxes in your carry-on luggage????
Also, anything that says "Made in China" is NOT allowed into Mexico due to the Mexican embargo against China. That is going to present a problem, since most items seem to be maufactured in China nowadays!
If you or anyone finds out differently, please let me know... Perhaps I have misinterpreted some of the prohibited items, but I would rather err on the side of caution.

I rang the airline and they said in checked baggage matches are ok.
