Brides that had or are having Mariachi Band

Recommended Posts

My Close friends had the Mariachi Band at their wedding and they played during dinner which was outdoors. They were AMAZING! There were like 10 Mariachis, I know they cost right around $1000, but they were WELL worth it, and they said they dont regret spending that much because they were great, they were a lot of them, and it was perfect.

Sarah,

 

With the reception could people dance to the Mariachi Band? I'm debating between a DJ or Mariachi Band.

 

We are having a beach reception with about 25-30 guests.

For the mariachi band, she had hers during her outdoor private dinner. So I mean I guess we could of danced with them, but since we were eating no one did. They are more so for atmosphere and experience. I am most likely going to copy my close friend and do the Mariachis at dinner, and then a DJ for the reception because our friends like to dance and go crazy lol. Depending on how long your reception is, you could do both, or do the Mariachis then switch to an Ipod or something too.....I hope that helps.

We had our mariache start right after the ceremony and go through the cocktail hour. My husband and I went off to take photos during this time, but we took some photos with the band when we came back to the party. I think the mariache is a great way to get people into the mood! I think we paid around $900. 

 

I'll attach one of my favorite pics with our wedding party & the mariache band!

Great idea.  Thanks ladies.  I think we are going to get Mariachis to play during dinner.  I think we're going to do this instead of hiring a DJ. Our crowd isn't really the dancing crowd and we'll only have about 24 ppl total.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
