I’m doing entrance, first dance, parent dances, toasts, dinner, dancing, break for cake cutting, more dancing.

 

I’ve heard of people cutting the cake before dinner and waiting until after dinner for the first dance to “open up” the dance floor.

If you’re doing a buffet then I think it would be odd to have people get food before you come in. It takes a long time for everyone to get a plate and you can’t just let a few tables get food. Are you having a cocktail hour? That food should be enough to tide people over for the 20-30 minutes dances and toasts take.

If you’re getting your photos done ebfore the ceremony, there is no need for a “hors d’ourves” hour.
