Prelude - During the prelude the
duo performs music to create the ambience prior to the ceremony
and give the waiting guest something to listen to while the
bride and groom prepare themselves to be married. 20
minutes of romantic boleros are performed. Boleros have
relaxed tempo with passionate lyrics and beautiful harmonies.
Should the ceremony start late, the duo will continue to perform
music until the the bride and groom are ready. Examples of
the most timeless boleros are "Sabor a Mi",
"Gema", "Tres Regalos", "Crei",
"La Gloria Eres Tu"
and "Solamente Una Vez".
Procession - The procession
consists of two songs if there is a wedding party, and one song
if there is no wedding party or very small wedding party.
The most popular procession songs in New Mexico are "Cannon in D",
"Que Bonita", and "Gema".
Ceremony - During the ceremony
there is typically one song performed just before or after the
exchange of vows. The "Ave Maria" or "Bless the Broken
Road" are well liked for this
although any other song can be substituted.
Recessional - For the recessional
it is appropriate to select a song that is festive and
indicative of the excitement that the couple will now be
spending the rest of their lives together. "De Colores" is a
favorite although other songs can be selected.
Los Primos can perform other songs during the ceremony such
• "At Last"
• "What a Wonderful World"
• "Can't Help Falling in Love"
• "Love Me Tender"
• "Cien Años"
• "Añillo de Compromiso"
• "Till There Was You"
If they don't already
know your song, they can learn it. Fees for learning
music vary with the song.
