    …why do you have a live band AND a DJ, I’m confused?

     

    We had a classical guitarist for the ceremony, a bellydancer for cocktail hour (he’s half Turkish), and a live band for the reception. One thing per moment is enough, imo…

    I think it would be cool if it makes sense to your FI’s family.  I find that in south america things are so regional, and not just by country.  Is this a northern thing?  I dont quite think this is popular in santiago, but Im totally guessing.  In argentina, there are a lot of customs that are not as common in the south as they are in the north since the south is far more developed.  Unless they are from the area where this is popular I would not do it.

    I have no opinion regarding the dancers, but I just had to tell you that, when I read the title of your post, at first glace I thought it said, “Chilean DOCTORS at wedding … ”

    I wondered, “Well, why not  invite them?” Hahahaha! ๐Ÿ™‚

    i think it’s a great idea. i’m mexican and i used to do folklorico dancing, so where i’m from it’s very common to see cultural dancing at weddings. i would suggest doing it during the cocktail hour or maybe towards the end of dinner- that’s how i usually see it done.

    I would like it!  But I may have to revert to the experts in that culture (his family) to see if it’s a faux paus or actually would be fun at a wedding.

    I love this! Love, love, love this! We’re talking about bringing a Peruvian pan-flute band in for our cocktail hour (FI’s mom is Peruvian, his dad is Chilean) and are definitely doing pisco sours as an option at the bar. Who wouldn’t? 

    If anything, I’d cut the photobooth, as it distracts attention away from the actual party. But that’s because I don’t like photobooths. Otherwise what you’ve described doesn’t feel too busy at all. And yay for the cueca!
