My DJ had mentioned that to us and I told him my only concern with that was that people might want to start all of hte dancing then instead of eating. We cut the cake directly after dinner and did the first and parent dances then. So that opened up the dance floor for everyone for awhile.

Honestly, as a guest I really dislike when the first dance is before dinner. I don’t think you should add the parent dances at that point. If you did them all after dinner, then it’s pretty common to do them all right in a row.

Yeah I agree with PP. I think guests will get bored.

I think before dinner people are just thinking about wanting to eat, and will be kind of impatient.

I thought it was weird that they were all spread out- but this seems to be the standard. I’d do what you want to do.

we did our dances in a row and it was great. i got all my maind dances done, DH got his done and then we could relax and enjoy everything else it was so neat. we literally walked in, did our first dance, my dad came and cut in for our dance, DH went and brought his mom up at the end of the father daughter and then while they were dancing i got our 2 kids and we did a family dance. after that all the kids and adults took to the floor and went crazy. it was nice because after the dances were all finished i went and changed out of my veil and shoes.

I’ve only ever seen them all done right in a row and right at the beginning. I think it makes the most sense to do it once the new couple and BP is announced…they walk in, do the first dance,then parents’ dances, and it’s done.
