You could tell them you want the mariachi at the end of the reception and only for half an hour. By then, most people has left and everyone is tired so listening to mariachi would be more like an opportunity to recover from so much dancing.

Most Mariachi bands won’t play for less than 2 hours and they usually play during dinner because Mariachi music is for listening not dancing. 

Has your Fiance asked for anything else to happen during the wedding or has this been his only request? If its been his only request, I say let him have it, its his day too.

 You can always tell the band to stay in a certain area so they don’t go table to table as its tradition to ask the guests to request songs thereby creating the play list. Just tell them (in advance) to play whatever they want.

I’m on the fence with mariachis for my own wedding, but I think that’s because I’m not a fan of live music. It’s always too loud. I can’t hear my own thoughts and there’s a bit of awkwardness when musicians are too close, it’s like you have no where to look. I feel rude just staring at them.

However, I have enjoyed mariachis at other weddings. I once attended a wedding where they had a mariachi play while the couple exited the church. I thought that was a good time for them to play. People are just standing around in a celebration mode with not much to do (not talking or eating). It’s adds to the excitement of the whole thing.
