    I wouldn’t be against it, but if you expect me to dance to ANY kind of music, it has to have a good beat for dancing.

    You might do a bit less of a split more like, 80/20 or something unless most of your guests are on the side that understands and appreciates the… what to call it… idk non american music lol. I would say there are a lot of people in general that will only dance if they know a song well.

    I think mixing in cultural music sounds like a lot of fun as long as the music is relatively upbeat!

    @bapbap: I’m half of an IR couple and people will have no choice but to listen to the Hispanic music being played. Its a blending of 2 cultures and I would never disrespect my Fiancee or her family like that. Besides I love dancing to salsa and bachata! Music overall can be a beautiful thing if you allow yourself to embrace it so definitely represent the cultures that are merging into one!

    @bapbap:  50/50 sounds good to me as long as the music is danceable! 🙂 My fiance and I recently went to a Persian wedding and had a blast dancing to American pop hits mixed with some pop in Farsi.
