Can I bring "preserved" flowers to mexico???

Recommended Posts

Some of the sites have preserved flowers....they look so much better than the silk. Do you think it's okay to travel into mexico with them?

I'm not sure, but I'm thinking they might reject them.

 

LOL I'm bringing some with me to Jamaica to scatter around the tables, but if they ask I will claim they are fake! LOL

I had no problem with bringing freeze dried. I split them amongst our group so that even if one got checked and confiscated we would still have lots. I think the only issue is bringing live plants and fresh cut flowers. p.s. I snuck hubby's boutonierre back and it was a rose.

You'll probably be just fine.  The way customs works in Mexico is that once you collect your bags, you turn in your customs forms (which no one reads) and then you step up to push a button.  If the light turns green, you're fine and no one asks you any more questions.  If it turns red, they open up all your bags and search everything.  I used to live in Mexico and traveled into the country probably 10 times, and I got the red light twice, if that gives you a sense of probability of getting searched. 

 

Good luck!

i think freeze dried flowers are fine! just to say,however, if they search you and find a "banned" item that you didnt declare youre not necessarily just looking at confiscation of said item...youre looking at possible penalties and a lengthy lengthy discussion. rules are enforced according to how officials feel on the day, but can involve a fine etc. And this is a massive generalisation. but Americans/English people are often assumed to be rich and so are more likely to get hit with penalties than a mexican

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
