Mariachi Bands can bring the magic, extra spice, and fun to make your special day one to cherish forever. Not just for you, but also for your guests too. You can be that relative or friend whose wedding everyone remembers fondly during Christmas or Thanksgiving forever. There’s no better way to begin your marriage than with intense romance and pure joy. Here are 10 reasons mariachi bands can make your wedding the best one yet.
1. Mariachi Bands are very romantic
You may not have known this, but we are going to let you in on our little secret. Mariachi bands can be very romantic if you make sure that you have set up the venue and the timing to best showcase the band. If you will, please picture the mariachi members dressed in their macho fitted suits with silver buttons gleaming. Candles are lit, the light in the room is low, and, from out of nowhere comes the band playing the loveliest, most romantic, most heart-tugging love song in their repertoire. As they begin to play, the bride and groom meet in the middle of the dance floor and begin to waltz while gazing into each other’s eyes. Every lady in the audience will tear up and every camera will flash as guests take a picture of this beautiful, heart-warming moment.
2. Kill Boredom
Do you ever have that wedding nightmare in which all your guests are sitting at their respective tables at the reception and are beginning to look bored? We know! What could be worse than bored guests? The only way to stop this recurring nightmare is to make sure that you have reserved your mariachi band for the reception. Sometimes the band leader can tell you about mariachi dance groups in the area. If they have any contacts, a dancer or two is a great way to get folks up on the dance floor. Even without a dancer to prime the pump, once the mariachi music starts, it is the rare person who can resist the happy, enthusiastic sound of the music played by a mariachi band. It’s an instant party starter.
3. Conversation starter
If you have a lot of guests who don’t know each other, mariachi can be one of the best conversation starters ever. The gaiety and happiness of the music and the friendly and out-going members of the band make people want to get to know each other. Mariachi “breaks the ice“.
4. No need for amplification
Since a mariachi band is small and does not need any sort of amplification, the price for their services often comes in lower than the price for other entertainment groups.
5. Engage the Children
Weddings are fun for everyone, including kids. You would be surprised at how quickly the children will hop onto the dance floor and join in the dancing. It’s instinctive. It’s organic. They can’t help themselves. They will be the life of the party.
6. Play any song at your Wedding
Mariachi bands, especially Mariachi Alegre de Tucson, can play just about any traditional and contemporary song that you throw at them.
7. Everybody is part of the party
If you are having a seated dinner, the mariachi can stroll among the tables and serenade your guests, and you, as you all enjoy your meal together.
8. Make Pictures better
A great idea is to have the mariachi band play while you are taking your church pictures. Letting them warm up the guests and pass the time while you are being photographed seems like a win-win, don’t you think? Margaritas included, of course.
9. Basically Fun
A mariachi band is fun. It’s a no-brainer. A mariachi band is just fun!
