@Tina1201:  Actually, mariachi comes from the french “mariage”=wedding, so if you were going for a french with a mexican detail wedding, it would totally be in order.  However, I don’t think that would have anything to do with your dominican husband.  

You need to check a little bit into his culture and ask him what he wants to incorporate.  Being mexican I can tell you that not all latin cultures are the same (even in the same country you find some very different wedding traditions be it the north or the south)  However for what Ive seen in a couple of diverse latin weddings, we all have some “special wedding dance” (jeez, I hate to use stereotipes, but most of us love to dance).  If you can find that out, it would be cool.  Also, if you are doing the catholic tradition, maybe you can do the exchange of coins (or arras) that we do in the latin cultures and Im not quite sure is done in the US (but this is a ceremony thing, not a reception thing).  

But if you are planning on having a DJ or some sort of music in your french vintage theme, please, include some latin music (for the cultures of the caribbean, mostly merengue, bachata and maybe salsa).  His family will appreciate it.
