    stressed about how to get my items to Mexico.  I have read some many different posts but some seem to be from years ago.  Need advice from recent brides who had approximately 50 welcome bags.  I know my items total more than $300.  UGH!  How do I get it all there?    I am traveling ahead of everyone to meet my planner and get settled.  I planned on making my bags and having it ready before everyone else arrives the next day.  Any suggestions?

      Congrats happy bride2013 on your upcoming Mexican wedding!!! would your gift bags and items fit into a suitcase or 2 if they were disassembled? that could be one option, even if you need to pay for the additional piece of checked luggage ......and if customs asks, just explain they are gifts for your wedding guests.

      Wishing you all the best with your adventure......cheers!

      Do they total more than $300 EACH? Because as far as I know (someone correct me if I am wrong) the limit is $300 per person, so that would mean that both you and your FI would have $300 allowed... $600 total...

        I have the same question!! I'll have about 40-50 bags as well and the only option I have come up with is to have everything disassembled and got into one suitcase. I am arriving the same day as my guests so I am going to get help and assemble them all and give out at our welcome dinner. I have heard you can ship everything out in boxes but this can probably become very expensive unless you know someone that works in the courier business. Good luck and let me know what you decide!

          This is a big challenge! What is everyone doing to get their items to Mexico. I know our stuff costs more than $300 And some items are from China which I hear causes problems too.
