The 10 Most Overplayed Songs at Mexican Weddings, Texas Edition


7. "El Campanero"

Mexicans don't discriminate when it comes to cumbias, and they will jump at the chance to dance cumbias of the vallenato and sabanero variety. These are native to Colombia and rose to popularity in Monterrey. A little slower, but just as fun.


6. Tribal

Tribal is a newer form of music that combines traditional Native American rhythms with electronic cumbias. The pointy-boot movement has blown up in the last few years, especially in Texas, with DJ Erick Rincon and his 3BallMTY at the forefront.


5. "El Rey"

Nothing says "Mexican Wedding" like Vicente Fernandez. Actually, Chente is appropriate for any Mexican occasion.

No matter how many times I hear it, Tragos is timeless. Went to a good ol double wedding, yes, double wedding down in Refugio, Tx. this past weekend and or course it ended the night-- twice. The most random place I've ever heard it played was at the Roxy which also ended the night, circa 01 I believe. Everyone knows it, everyone sings it and everyone goes home happy. Classic. Fa sho.
