1- Did you book the Catamaya Excursion in advance or decide to do it once you got there?
2- How many photos did you get on cd? Did they take pics of the ceremony only or reception too?
3- When did the mariachi band play (ceremony? cocktail?)? What music did you have for the ceremony?
4- Did you have any music or dancing during the dinner reception?

Thanks a mucho, married lady!!!
We booked the Catamaya excursion when we got to the hotel. We used a Funjet representative named Alex. He was very nice. The excursion wasn't private (we didn't even ask) we just payed per person and I think it was around $50 or $60 pp.

I got 15 photos on the CD. 12 came with my package and I paid $45 for the other three extras. He took pics of the ceremony and cocktail hour. He didn't stay for the reception. The photos that you get with your package can only be the ones he takes during the ceremony.

I didn't choose what the mariachi band played. They played a beautiful Mexican wedding song as I was going down the aisle. They continued to play until we got to our cocktail hour. Total I would say they played for 45 minutes. They were worth the extra money because my guests LOVED them!

No, we didn't have any music or dancing at the reception in Mexico because we are saving that for our AHR bunny_4.gif

Hope that helped you girl! xoxo

Yes, they worked out great. I used the medium sized bumpit and then put my hair half up/half down and then secured the back with a few bobby pins and sprayed my hair and it stayed perfect all night. I am planning on using them at my AHR toosmile72.gif

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
