Music - at a total loss

Recommended Posts

So, I'm trying to nail down the music for my wedding next march.

I'm having an intimate ceremony with 20 guests at Hacienda San Angel.

 

My ideal scenario would be:

 

Ceremony (1 hour): trio

Cocktail hour (1 hour): mariachi

Dinner (3 hours): DJ

 

The problem is that HSA has informed me that the HOURLY rates are

$195 for trio

$600 for mariachi

$250 for DJ

 

That's insanely expensive for hourly rates! or is this normal?

At Dreams, the mariachi is $700/hour... the trio is quoted at $300 or $500 (I can't remember)... the DJ is $170/hr but I think that is with me providing my iPod and/or CDs... if they have to provide the music it would be even more expensive.

we plan to bring our laptap with our play list already done up and plan on renting the speakers to hook in to. we will just have someone hit the buttons at certain times.

Those prices don't seem too far off-base to me. At Playa Fiesta, the trio is $500 per hour, the 10 piece mariachi band is $700 per hour, and the DJ is $600 for the entire night (flat fee).

I am getting married in Hilton Head, but just to give you the comparison to here.

 

My dj is $650 for 4 hours (he is the least expensive one) & my ceremony solo violinist is $275 for 1 hour (she is the least expensive).

 

So, you are doing really good with those prices I think! Plus it will be what you want!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
