    Hi There - we're getting married at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach in 10/10... and our wedding planner would like to know what type of musicians to book for the ceremony.

    We have our option of all of the traditional mexican beach wedding groups (Harps, Guitars, Mariachi, Strings, Brass, etc). I'd love to have a couple harps playing, but as we're getting married on the beach (pacific side) i'm afraid that the wind and waves will drown out the music!

    Any suggestions??

    Thanks :)

      Hi Alexa,

       

      I don't know if you have chosen your music yet, but i think that you should choose something a bit louder.  It is very windy at Pueblo Bonito esp on the beach.  Good luck, I am going w Mariachi ;)

        Xtenna - 

         

        Thanks for getting back to me :)

         

        We selected the Harpists just last week, after listening to a couple videos of beach weddings that used them. I did want to do the Mariachi band, but it just doesn't really go with the vibe of our wedding... boo. 

         

        Are you getting married there as well?

          No, but we have stayed there before.  I was looking at PB Sunset or Rose but we didn't know that a Catholic priest will not do a ceremony outside of the church.  So now we are deciding between the chruch in Cabo or San Jose.

            We got married there July 13, 2010 on the beach.  We chose a trio of a harp, a bass and a guitar.  I honestly can't tell you what they sounded like since I don't remember hearing them at all. 

             

            Of course, some of the reason for this is that they really only played while the guests were being seated (and of course we weren't there for that!), during the processional (this was kind of a long walk so I think we were too far away for most of it - and I was really nervous about reciting my vows so I'm sure I wasn't paying attention!), and during the recessional (again, we were really only in hearing distance for a short while).

             

            I think we might have skipped having musicians altogether if they weren't part of the package deal there. I guess it's a nice touch but not something that either our guests or my husband & I really remember about that day.  :)
