HELP!?!?!?!? STARFISH into MEXICO

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!! My wedding is just under two months out, and I am just learning about the rules in regards to bringing STARFISH into Mexico. We are flying into the Cancun airport and I have made my own napkin rings and escort cards with the white 3'  finger starfish. Can someone please give me some advice on their experience on bringing these items into Mexico.  

 

I had read if they are replicas, it is not as big of a deal . . .SADLY, I dont even know if mine are replicas or real. I am pretty sure they are not real though.I attatched a photo also. PLEASE HELP!! THANK YOU!700

Relax! I used tons of real, dried out starfish and did not have any problem bringing them into Mexico. If the starfish were alive (which they are obviously not), that would be the issue, but since they are properly dried out, you shouldnt have any trouble at all. Mexico is mainly worried about there being live organisms on the starfish.

Hi BDW forum! 

 

Though we are sure OP already took care of the starfish issue since it's over 4 years old, we wanted to leave this helpful link here for future brides going trough the same starfish-related dilema!

Among those DIY projects, you'll find a link with instructions to make your own starfish.. They look virtually the same as the real ones, you'll have no issues with flying them whatsoever... and, most importantly, you won't be disrupting any eco-system by using starfish in your wedding decorations :)

 

Happy planning everyone!
