      Yea I'm with you....want to make it work for both ceremony and cocktails. I'm curious to know if you are able to make ceremony song requests or how that works?

        I voted trio only because I don't think that the mariachi brings enough extra value to be worth it. Better to err on the side of:

        -less money
        -less overwhelming
        -more romantic
        -better ratio of muscians to guests

          Ditto for me... I could not have said it better myself & exactly the reason we are having a trio

            I thank everyone for their comments so far. Janet, your's sums up my feelings pretty well. I think I'm now leaning toward the trio, where I started in the beginning really wanting a full Mariachi band.

              Sarah, I definitly vote for the Trio, it just seems more romantic for the ceremony and more laid back for the cocktail hour. :)

                Well sarah, I'm glad you started this thread, because I too had always wanted the mariachi and now I'm leaning towards the trio as well.

                  Sarah - I've reserved them through my coordinator, Maye Cortinas. Unfortunately I do not have their specific info.

                    A good mariachi band can play all sorts of music. At a resort I stayed at in Cancun, they had a house Mariachi band that would play soft, melodic music during dinner then later on at the outdoor patio bar they would play upbeat festive music.

                    Since it is just going to be Karen and I at the ceremony, I dont think we are doing either choice. We would be outnumbered either way . A solo guitarist is also an option.

                      I am going to revive this thread, because now I am faced w/the same question ... mariachi or trio?

                      Here's what I am thinking, and questions I have -- I like the idea of live music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and probably even dinner. But then we'd probably get a DJ for the rest of the night.

                      I don't know if I should get a mariachi or trio. I feel like the mariachi would be more "fun and festive" but maybe it's unnecessary. And the mariachi is a lot more expensive. Would the trio be too low key for the cocktail hour? Also, what kind of music would either of them play for the ceremony - did any of you girls or guys have a mariachi or trio for the ceremony?
