I was born and raised in Russia so my family is Russian-Jewish. My fiance was born and raised in Argentina so his family is Argentinian-Jewish. His family is traveling from Argentina (my excuse to have the wedding in Aruba YAY!!!).
So my dilemma is.... Jewish music, Russian music, American music, Argentinian/Spanish music... Then island music. It becomes either a beautiful mix of cultures or a complete mess.
Our wedding planner is suggesting a steel drum solo for the ceremony but it's a traditional Jewish ceremony with a rabbi, how in the world does steel solo go with it?
I am so confused trying to incorporate all of the elements. I am tempted to leave out the island sound since we will obviously have to do Jewish, Russian, and Spanish.
Anyone else having the same issue with too many cultures mixing on the big day??

I don't want to leave any of those out because obviously they are so important to us. I'm just concerned about how to make the transitions smooth, as mnh1983 said.
Linda, how did you do the transitions??

At the reception hour we had a great band and they did a great job at blending the spanish and american music together. We had a blast it went from classic rock, to 80's music(yeah we are totally 80's fans), to salsa/merengue and then had a Batuplena(congos, trumpets, tamborines etc band) show up and blast the party out with native prcan music. The show ended with some awesome american music and some spanish rock...
At our AHR the same thing applied. The DJ really did just look for the beats and blended all 3 cultures amazingly!
God I hope this isnt to confusing but just know it blends just look for the different beats and the tones you want to set and mix it up ! Hope this helps
