      Couple questions:
      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

      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 too

                  Your hair looked great!!! Did you do it yourself?
                  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 too
