Wow! That sounds like you got everything in there. You should always give a few extra minutes to each time lot, just in case. I think your good though.

@ajillity81:  I personally wouldn’t break up the open dancing with dinner.

I would do the first dance then welcome speech/toasts. Then begin dinner service. Then mother/daughter and mother/son dances. I think the hora and anniversary dances can be inserted in the open dancing portion of the evening.

i also wouldn’t break up dancing by dinner. i think dancing and eating and dancing again would make me sick. i would save the dancing for one time because if you break it up by dinner when more people are about to come dance too you have to end it for more food.

I would not break up dinner with dancing. I personally wouldn’t dance at all between courses and I’m pretty sure most guests will just stay on their seats. I would be sitting ther getting really crabby because I was hungry :/ that’s also a very late dinner time- please ensure that your guests know that dinner won’t be served until 9pm.

You really have thought of everything! My only concern that as a guest I would be a little curious as to why it took an hour between salad and dinner, you know? Obviously it is your wedding and however you want to set it up is totally fine! 🙂

@ajillity81:  Oh very true! I spose so long as guests know how late dinner is and know to eat plenty of appetisers! One wedding I went to (fancy schmancy) they had appetisers and a 3-course dinner, but we didn’t know when dinner would be served so we hardly ate any appetisers and let ourselves stay a little hungry, but by the time dinner came hours later we were SAH HUNGRAY! 😛

I also agree with PP’s about dancing, I would be sitting there wondering why we weren’t being fed, and not moving because I am A) just fed and B) expecting the next part of the events to happen. I would be super confused haha and I would probably think after 30 minutes that the salad was dinner!

I think it will end up being 20 minutes of awkward nothingness and loud music rather than “dancing resumes” 😛

Hmmm I’d do dinner all at once and then have uninterrupted dancing after. I wouldn’t feel like getting up and dancing if I know another course is coming in 10 minutes.
