Customs there is pretty random. When we went it was just mass chaos and they’d pick random people to search their bags. I have no idea if you can bring those things in or not though.

My wedding’s a month after yours in Aruba!! Have you tried asking your planner? Mine has been very helpful in finding out random info for me.

If you don’t mind me asking, what location are you getting married at and who are you using for your makeup/hair?

@arubabride2013:  We’re staying at the Westin, but the wedding will be by the fofoti trees across from Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort. Our reception will be at Passions on the Beach. My planner is Lissy Lampe from Ceremonies and Celebrations. The pictures she sent me of her stylist’s work didn’t amaze me, so I’ll either be going to the Westin’s salon or Maggy’s (I think they have 3 or 4 locations and also come to your hotel room).

The starfish might be classed as marine life (even if they’re not still alive) so those are less likely to be allowed in, regardless of the shipping method (checked baggage or sent by Fedex whatever).  You’ll probably have a bigger challenge getting them back into the US.  Have you considered getting these items at a local source in Aruba?

This is the detail on items being brought back into the US so if you do get these articles into Aruba, you will likely have to leave them behind (it may be very hard to prove they did not originate in Aruba):

 

 Items not permitted into the U.S. include all Cuban products and plants and any form of marine life. Both Aruba and the U.S. forbid their removal including shells and coral. Passengers are permitted an 800$duty-free exemption.
