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!
