I am getting married at the Beach Palace in May next year and am in the process of costing / confirming decor, lighting, entertainment etc. I received entertainment options and me and my other half are very keen to have a mariachi band. The cheapest option is a 6 piece band for $1500 (45 mins), this seems very pricey to me. Has anyone used an outside band or been quoted cheaper for a 6 piece? Or would be good to hear thoughts on whether this is expensive as havent hired one before.
thanks in advance for your help!
Me again with another question...
We would like to extend our reception time and were initially told it would cost $60 per table, per hour. We have now been informed it is $8.50 per person per hour (tables of 8). Not massively different but we are looking to extend by about 4-5 hours so it will make quite a difference. Would appreciate hearing what others have been quoted.
thank you x
I don't have advice specific to your resort, but if you have an email /quote in writing saying $60/table I would hold them to that. Simply reply to THAT email when extending your time, and give them your total expense (ie: we would like to extend our reception by 4 hours for all 4 tables at $60/table for a total of $960. Thank you)
