I did not send the songs for the video in advance. I actually sent them when I got home. I am happy overall with the video but like for instance the cocktail hour is the mariachi music... im not a fan of it. i would have rather he scan the scene and show everyone and have a song i picked in the backround but i wouldnt have thought to tell him that before hand.
i absolutely loved my hair and make up. i went in there with a picture of a girl with her hair up in a lose fitting bun and mine didnt look identical but she did a good job. i knew i wanetd my hair up because my hair tends to fluctuate with the weather and it was a cloudy day. one drop of rain or humidity and i would have frizz all over the place lol so i decided to be safe. i asked for a braid going back which i sort of had but overall i really liked my hiar. i think maybe a little tighter would have been better because from some angles it looks a little wierd but from the direct front and back i loved it. also by the end of the night i needed help with some bobby pins because it was coming out, but it was no biggie. i also brought a veil with me and forgot to take it down to the hair appointment ( was super stressed going back and forth making the back up plans incase it rained), but lorena came in with 2 flowers for me instead of one and once the heair dresser put them in my hair i loved it so much i didnt bother with the veil. i semi-regret this since i dont have any pics with the beutiful veil i bought but just seemed the flowers went with the beach and i went with the "less is more" decision, plus after my hair was done the veil would have been a lot higher up than i had orginally wanted it & i was nervous to mess up my hair after getting back to my room ;(
As far as make up. i loved this also. i purcahsed fake eyelashed for $15 from the spa and they looked so natural and beautiful. i do remember telling her at first my eye make up was a little too dark and she easily just made it a little lighter. i also purchased a $6 lip gloss that she had put on my lips so i could re-apply it but im pretty sure i never did since i was having so much fun i wasnt even concerned lol
