Weddings; from beginning to end.
Proposals: Hiring a mariachi band for a marriage proposal it's a great idea we often do and love to do. Having the Mariachi band arrive as a surprise it's already a shock, now imagine his/her face when you get down on one knee? This is something your loved one will remember for the rest of his/her life, and we will be glad to help you with ideas for this. Now, if your fiancée is Latino then allow me to remind you that a Mariachi serenade has a special meaning, it is an expression of love and chivalry to another person. It is so important in our culture that many women of advanced age, who never received a mariachi serenade, do not want to pass away without having a mariachi sing to them! That's how important and memorable it is.
Engagement Party: A few weeks or months after the proposal, the bride's parents host an engagement party for family and new family members, friends and co workers, to celebrate the new engagement. A Mariachi band for an engagement party can be cost effective, fun, or simply an excellent background music while guests socialize.
Rehearsal Dinner: Traditionally the night before the wedding, the groom's parents host the rehearsal dinner. This is important because it allows family members from both sides to know each other and avoid awkwardness on the wedding day! A Mariachi band for the rehearsal dinner can be cost effective, fun, or simply an excellent background music while guests socialize. Now, if either the bride or groom are from Latino countries and you already have music for the wedding day, a mariachi band on the rehearsal dinner would be a must, in order to incorporate this important part of the culture.
Ceremony: This is indeed the most important part of the of your wedding day! And good music it's important, but more important it's how responsible the musicians are.
Will they know or learn the music you requested? Will they be there on time? Will they know what's going on? When you hire a mariachi band for your wedding ceremony they need to have all these traits, and Mariachi Citlalli has a perfect record of responsibility, and experience. Don't hire stress, hire a mariachi band that knows their business, hire Mariachi Citlalli.
Cocktail Hour: The most requested hour, for a mariachi band to play in a wedding, it's the cocktail hour. And it is the perfect time; everyone relaxes, socializes, or just want to start the fun! Mariachi Citlalli has performed in countless weddings; we will play either traditional or romantic songs to set the mood, and your guests can requests songs too; some will even dance to our music. For this reason, for the cocktail hour, a mariachi band will be your best bet.
First Dances: Undoubtedly, other key moments of your wedding are when the bride and groom dance for the first time, or when the bride dances with dad, or when the groom dances with mom. Whether, the bride or groom, is Latino or both simply hold a special connection to the culture, doing the first dance with a mariachi band it's something very memorable. Imagine dancing Besame mucho, Novia mia, or even a song of your choice... it will be unique, romantic and culturally correct. Now, if both the groom and bride are Latino, then dancing Mi niña bonita with dad is a must, or dancing Madresita querida with mom it is also a must!
Reception: Hiring a mariachi band for the wedding reception it is also very common practice. Especially if a great percentage of your guests will be Latinos, (not matter what country, they all know and love mariachi music) then performing at the reception it is a great idea. Either at the beginning or end of the reception, even a small serenade, like in the picture above, having Mariachi Citlalli for your wedding reception will be a memorable moment.
