I am being totally ripped off?!!

Recommended Posts

You can book Mariachis in all kinds of combinations: Full group, trio, quartet. It doesn't always have to mean trumpets and "typical" mariachi stuff. However, I've been looking around and that seems to be the going rate per hour, slightly less if you have less musicians.

I think there is some confusion maybe...

 

The $320 an hour is for what Maye calls a "trio mariachi" not the full mariachi.

 

The full mariachi is like $550 an hour.

 

I hear what you are saying though, I really wanted them for 2 hours...but I didn't want to pay the extra...so it will be a quick trip for them!

At my resort in Jamaica they told me that for a reggae band it's $600 for the first two hours and then $200 every hour after that. I think live music of any kind is expensive

I think that's a decent price too. In PV I think the price was more than double that, maybe because mariachi originated close by in Guadalajara? I agree that live music in general costs a lot but if you're really into it it's worth it. Good luck!

Anyone booked a mariachi band on their own and had better luck?
We paid $430/hr for 5-member Mariachi band. They were great.

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
