    I like the first option simply because I think the toast "officially" starts most of the wedding activities.  It would be a nice lead-in to your first dance!

    We didnt come into the reception until everyone was seated so we did our grand entrance, first dance, dinner (toasts during dinner), then parent dances. Im a fan of the toasts during dinner. I think if its done during the cocktail hour it is hard to get everyones attention.

    I like #2 because it would break up the big moments a bit! I like to draw out the attention…haha!  I like that you’d make the entrance, then enjoy the cocktail hour, and then get to have yet another big moment at the end of cocktail hour by doing the toasts and first dance!

    I think we’re doing cocktails first, and then grand entrance, first dance, and then parents toast..

    I’ve been to weddings that were like that, too. =)

    i like the idea of doing toasts before the cake cutting. maybe that’s odd though, i just think that its hard to hold attention for too much at once…what do you think?
