I am confused.
Do we do our first dance as we enter into the ballroom, right after being introduced?
Or do we do our first dance after dinner?
Details: dinner is a buffet, no cocktail hour. Guests will be seated at tables (bar will be open) when we are introduced). Buffet will open after we arrive.
When should we do our first dance?

As long as your reception isn’t starting too late (say, after 7:30pm), then I say do it after you are introduced. If your reception *will* be starting later, then let guests get something to eat as soon as possible, and then do your first dance.

Our reception is starting right about 7 PM.
Bump for nighttime bees!

We did it after dinner to open up the dance floor and I think it worked out great!! Thats what I voted for.

@Miss Leopard: were going to do ours right after we get introduced. Were having a buffet as well:)

I was just in a friends wedding in May, and they did it right after they were introduced before dinner was served. I acually had never seen this, so it got me thinking.
We will probably do ours right before the dance starts, so after dinner. We have a band, and they plan on having an order for everything – so we’ll do our first dance, wedding party and then parents dances before the dancefloor will be opened up to everyone.

We are doing our first dance immediately after doing the introductions of the wedding party, it just flows better that way rather than stopping and starting the night multiple times for things. <br /><br />We are doing<br />5:00-6:00 cocktail hour. <br />Everyone will be moved from the bar and patio to the dining room so people will be pretty much standing already for the entrance <br />6:00-6:15 wedding party entrance <br />6:15 first dance <br />We will already be stnading and in a dancing mood from our entrance. Then after people can easily get back to their seats and have dinner. <br />6:30-7:30 Dinner <br />7:30 cake cutting<br />7:45 parent dances <br />8:00-11:00 dance foor open and time to party!!

Miss Leopard: Whatever you feel comfortable with. If you are having dancing after, I would do that to open up the dance floor. Eeither way works, though …
