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!

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
