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

    • Hey. Well, I would say that for a honeymoon, Florida is not a particularly good option. My preference in such cases is the paradise islands where you can actually to be alone. If I chose where to fly, my recommendations about choice were Seychelles. Just look at the reviews of these islands, and you will immediately fall in love with them. Also, there are only great hotels such as (https://savoy.sc/blog/honeymoon-in-seychelles/) and many others. My wife and I visit this country every year and try to combine different hotels, and this one is very worthy.
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
