@Pinkmoon:  We didn’t want any solo couple dances, not even for part of a song! We got the party rolling by having our first dance with our flower girl to her favorite band (1 Direction, she’s 11). Friends and family immediately joined in. Then we played a really crazy rap song that everyone in our families knows the words too. 

When we were thinking about doing parent dances, we liked the idea of some Van Morrison songs as a nod to their generation.

Yeah we started out with “our” song, then had it slide into You’ve got a Friend (James Taylor).  We were best friends for so long, but we had my Dad and DH’s Mom cut in and dance with us then.  Then almost at the end my Dad cut in on DH and his Mom… and said it’s nice to add a new friend to our family to MIL.  It just worked plus his mom is kind of a hippie and my dad loves james taylor. 

Plus alot of those daddy/daughter mother/son songs were creepy sexual (cousin had Van Morrison dancing with her dad to Brown Eyed girl…just ew)

I asked my DJ to invite everyone to join us on the dance floor at the 1:45 mark of our first dance song as it is LONG and has a rather long instrumental break at that point.  I figure it will cut down on the awkwardness.
