    We were asked how many people we had with us going through customs and the lady said to me "because you have a lot of wedding supplies" - we had 15 small square vases ($3 each) and then a few frames with pictures in them and message in a bottle favours as well as napkins, my hanger and some other things - nothing major! I had my MOH and mother going through with my husband and I and so I said 4 and she said "ok" and let us go. My brother and his fianc© were searched and they asked how much everything was worth and she just say the vases were $2 and the frames she had were $3 to $5, they let them go no problem.

    The space saving bags are a great idea! I wouldn't have thought of those for non-clothing items. I'm definitely worried about all the stuff we are going to lug to Mexico with us.

    Careful with the air tight bags. They might make more room but they definitely don't reduce weight. Unless you have a ton of light items that take a lot of space for what they weight (such as lanterns, or sweaters- not like you would need them) make sure you weight the suitcase before you leave.

    so question.... do I have to declare and show receipts of my handmade faux flowers and table/chair decor?    They are not gifts...

     

    I understand I have to declare any gifts I bring:  OOT bags and favors, etc.

     

    Cuz I already know if I have to declare everything including my decor its going to be over $300. 

    Should I only bring reciepts for the gifts and favors... and just give estimate if they ask on the decor.

     

    Cuz most of my decor and my flowers I really only paid almost nothing for out of pocket, due to won/ or given gift cards.   But on the reciept it shows total $ with gc.  :(

     

    I have my bouquet + 6 small BM bouquets

    gel beads for the centerpieces

    8 chair starfish decor items

    12  OTT bags for wedding party

    60  maracas favors

    Bride & Groom wedding chair signs

    Photo Guest Book

    Cake Topper

     

     

    might be also bringing 6 table runners and napkins

        You ladies are very good, I never knew you could purchase extra weight. Plus I want to bring some items and I didn't know how I was going to get them to the wedding.

        it's just the gifts.

         

        you could also "create your own" receipts for the decor, in case you're worried. but tell them it's wedding decorations, and personal belongings, and you're taking it back home with you. you shouldn't have an issue.

         

         

        so question.... do I have to declare and show receipts of my handmade faux flowers and table/chair decor?    They are not gifts...
