I read that getting items into Mexico was iffy, what kinds of things can I take for favors and OOT bags that won't get confiscated?

the general rule is you can't bring more than $300 worth of 'gifts' into the country.

we are leaving for Mexico in 2 days (EEK!) and we have 2 bags of wedding stuff - OOT gifts and decorations. we are each checking 1 bag and have the receipts for EVERYTHING in the wedding bags. we each have less than $300 (gifts & decor), but I wanted to split it up between FH and I - just in case. if he gets the red light and gets inspected - I'll just take my bag and meet him at the transfer later :)  and if he gets the green light - "I'm with him!" 

I've heard from a lot of brides that as soon as you say "it's a for the wedding" most customs agents are pretty relaxed, unless you have like hundreds and hundreds of items and it looks like you might sell them. I plan on playing up the 'we're getting married' throughout the airport - including a BRIDE hat... 

I'll let you know how it goes when we get back in about 2 weeks. keep your fingers crossed for us it goes well!

    • Hello Kim;) Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!!! My name is Marisol Vera and I am wedding planner; if you are looking for a destination wedding Cancun and Riviera Maya are great options and pretty safe since all the hotels and resorts are taking great care of their guests and visitors.

    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
