Recommended Posts

For those married at DC...any thoughts/opinions on the Mexican or Caribbean trio? I know I know seems weird to even consier a Caribbean trio in Mexico but just keeping our options open. Thanks for any info!

I'm going for the Caribbean because it's 350$ versus 700$ for the Mariachi. Also I think (I could be wrong) that's it's more what I had in mind, more of a laid back caribbean style versus traditional mexican music? I could be wrong though, that's just a guess. I would like to hear both to see the difference! I'm not overly found of the mariachi's costumes though! Not a very laid back look.

 

If the price was reversed, I'd probably go for the mariachi though. I didn't expect it to be nearly so expensive. You can get the same musicians at resorts in Cuba (for weddings) for 100$ or so, which is what I expected to be paying (700$ is a LOT of money in mexico! and it's just for 45 mins!!!!)

SunBride,

When is your wedding? I hope I get to hear your thoughts on the caribbean trio. I know seems silly but like you said we like the laid back sound of caribbean music too.

its included in the ultimate package.

 

We wanted to have some traditional mexican things mixed into our wedding because its in mexico, we used them for our cocktail hour.

 

I think the mariachi that is $700 might be a whole mariachi band, not just the trio. They were a lot of fun.

I think there is only one mariachi option (not a trio or a whole band). The big package of information I receive just says:
caribbean trio = 350$
mariachi = 700$

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
