    Hi there,

     

    I am in the US, having my wedding in Cabo. I placed a bulk order for mason jars and am having them delivered here in the US. Then I was thinking of shipping them to my WC in cabo as it gets closer. Does any know if this will create an issue? Does shipping a bulk order of mason jars create issues at customs?

    I don't know how this stuff works :-/

     

    Thanks!!!

    I've never done it but I read horror stories that either things don't show up or they are seriously picked thru by customs.

    If you do plan to mail them I would ensure your WC is ok with storing them. I know our resort isn't.

    Good luck

    Definitely ask your WC if it's ok, mine told me that I couldn't ship anything to them because they don't have the room to store it plus you never know what'll happen when it goes through customs - I've also heard what @calgarybride2015 has heard, that sometimes it doesn't even show up.

     

    For my favors and OOT bags, I'm asking my family if I can borrow extra luggage from them and then paying to check the extra bags. It's a pain but worth it to get them there safe!  :)

    I agree with the posters @calgarybride2015 and @Soon2beMrsJ, I was told by my WC NOT to ship any of my wedding items to Cabo, as the could be subject to search and taxes by customs.  My WC also told me if I shipped my items there is no guarantee my packages would make it to Cabo at all.  We are putting all of our stuff in big suitcases and taking everything up with us, just to be sure it makes it to Cabo.

      I think it is not only a safer bet, but really the cost of an extra suitcase (ours is $25) is much cheaper than shipping anyways!

      I would look into your airlines regulations.  If you need more than you can get (ie, when I go over my max extra bags at $25, they start charging $225), you could ask your friends/family, etc. to help out.
