The limit for customs per person is $500 if arriving by air, $300 if arriving by car.


It's a little confusing, because the website also says that personal items are duty free including wedding party items. So, i''m going to be safe rather than sorry and have my receipts and guest list.

 

@calgarybride2015 did you declare your items or did you have the receipts only?

I've also seen $600. Funny how the info varies. I had one found what seemed like a legit Mexican site but should have book marked it.

No as as the tourist card basically asked us if I had more than $10k which I didn't. The other ones were more food and dangerous good related. I just had them ready in case and had no issues. No one searched us.

Going to google again to see if I can find that site.

@Sheaka

 

I actually just found a site linked from a legit Canadian site that said $500USD, but I did find a Mexican tourist card that said $300USD -- looking more closely at it, I think it is outdated.  

 

I would stick with the $500USD -- I apologize!!!   but atleast you get more and you now know :)

Outdated one but if you've never been to Mexico gives you an idea of the tourist card- http://www.aduanas.g...ES_18102010.pdf

    Hey girls, not sure if this has been mentioned before but you can mix and match the food on the buffet menus, you are not stuck with just one! That made me so happy because I love a little from each. Just wanted to share, because my coordinator did not volunteer this info :)


    @smileitseb were you able to pick dishes off each buffet menu? Or just ask for a combination? Have you heard anything is particularly delicious or worth skipping?

    @phdtck1 well we have never actually met lol but we exchanged lots and lots of emails! I find a lot of ideas on pinterest and she makes it happen!. I'm not wearing a veil, are you? wearing a jeweled headpiece instead :)
     
    attachicon.gifheadpiece.jpg


    @smileitseb that headpiece is gorgeous!!!!!!

    @phdtck1 yess i wanted a white robe with french white sleeves too but i think my time is running out. i was hoping i would get one at my bridal shower so I was holding out 
     
    yea i think i paid ~$260 for 60 maracas.... i guess it depends on what you consider reasonable
     
    I'm bringing chargers because I believe DRC wanted to charge me $6 but I found them for $2. I'm also bringing chair sashes (DRC wanted to charge me $3) and mirrors to go under my centerpieces (dreams wanted to charge me $15 each)....i thought about bringing sequin table clothes but i just dont feel like lugging all that stuff. some things i am just biting the bullet to pay for convenienc
     
    im not asking any of my wedding party to bring anything, but i get 2 free checked bags on delta to help with the cost and just gonna pay for the rest :)


    @smileitseb did maracas Mexico ship the maracas to the resort. I remember you had some kind of payment issue. Was that all worked out ? Thanks for all your help!

    @Sheaka @calgarybride2015 what sites are you referencing? Is it safer to confirm with our travel agents?

    @phdtck1 I will post it. Yes it's probably best to ask the TA.

    @SchroederWedding2015 I was able to pick and choose different things from different menus. My menu:

    Salad Bar:

    pasta salad

    mixed greens with vegetables

    chicken caesar salad

    potato salad with scallions

    homemade bread and rolls

    seafood salad  

     

    Hot Dish: cajun roasted potatoes

    creole pasta

    corn on the cob

    chicken breast stuffed with spinach

    seafood casserole  

     

    Show Cooking: jamaican chicken

    cajun beef brochettes

    seafood paella

    BBQ pork ribs  

     

    Dessert: coconut and rum cake

    brownies

    carrot cake

    apple strudel

     

    No I haven't heard anything specific about that food, I'm just going based on what I know I like. 

     

    Re the maracas, I didn't have any payment issue actually, that was another bride. But they are being shipped to the resort and will be arriving the day I get there, so cant give a full review yet but im sure it will be fine!

    Hello everyone! My name is Yune and I just booked Dreams for February 27, 2016 (waiting for a confirmation from David). Sorry for crashing your forum, but there doesn't appear to be a 2016 one yet. I've ready through everything and my goodness, this has been so much help. I am so glad I found this website. We're hoping to do the wedding/cocktail/reception on the beach, but will confirm this is really what we when we do our site visit in two visits!

     

    If any of you ladies have a moment, I was hoping you can email that budget spreadsheet that you got from David. I wanted to get started on a rough estimate of how much my dream wedding is going to run us. I will be forever grateful! My email address is do.yune@yahoo.com THANK YOU!!!

     

    Looking forward to seeing more weddings as we progress through 2015!
