    I would go with the solo guitar and the firedancers.

    AND I would get sparklers for each of the guests. Rebecca, didn't you do that? It makes for GREAT pictures and they're like $2 or $3 per person.

          I think I am going to go with fireworks and salsa dancers. I'm still not sold on the fire dancers idea. LOL. Natasha do the salsa dancers teach your guests how to dance at the reception? I'm not quite sure what their services are. I would like to get dancers that would maybe dance with each other for a song and then interact and dance with my guests. Do they do this?

          Did you all have them in Spanish and translate?
          Did you get any time to personalize it with the officiant?
          Could you do your own vows, or anything special?

          thank you!
          i brought my own officiant so it was exactly how we wanted it...sweet but funny...i think i posted my ceremony on here somewhere...

          since i had my own officiant it was in english.

              Yes. After the toast, I said, "OK - now we need everyone to get up and get on the dance floor" and immediately people were lined up and our salsa dancers came out and started teaching people steps. Very high motivation. They danced with each other at the end (and during) after people got really tired. If they start dancing at the beginning, it will look intimidating to people.

              They start out with everyone following them doing steps and then after a song or two, they start showing couples moves. Finally, they dance together.

              Here are two pictures. My caveat - people liked the salsa teachers, but they loved the fire dancers. If you asked our guests, this is the one thing they would have said, "yeah, that was nice, but..." So if you're deciding between the two, I'd go with the fire dancers.

                Thanks Natasha! Maybe I will go with both. Gosh I am going to go bankrupt with all this! Natasha you also got fireworks right? Do you mind my asking how much your entire wedding cost you? Excluding travel/accomodations and your bridal wear? I am planning to get a lot of the same things you had at your wedding so I wanted to get an idea for how much this could cost me.

                  Here you go - this totals to just under $31,000 for the items you selected (excluded gifts to each other, attire, etc.).

                  Note that these include tips (15%) and tax (10%). Tips were for food and beverage, flowers, and for Maye (based upon the arch, table settings, candles, etc - everything that they had to source and set up) but not photographer, musicians, etc. as suggested by Maye.
