No, this sounds really long and boring for everyone involved.  Pick one, and have dances with them individually as the night progresses.

I would just make sure they understand the specific order you’ll be dancing with them in, and then advise them to let you dance with the person before for a sufficient amount of time before gracefully cutting in.

It doesn’t sound long and boring to me. It sounds like 1 song which would be the same length no matter how many people are involved and mixing it up throughout more interesting.

It’s a very sweet idea and lovely way to honour the key people who have stepped in and provided support in the absence of your dad. I would however work out roughly how long each one should leave it.

Let’s say you keep the song to 2-3 minutes or so, you could have each guy standing in their own corner of the dance floor. Start with one, after 30-45 seconds or so you give the guy a hug/kiss to queue the next guy to start walking forward. As for knowing when 30-45 seconds is, you can listen to it and know yourself when you kiss and send them off.

This sounds great. I don’t have any suggestions on timing, but I was at a wedding once and I saw a really cute transition where the one man twirled the bride out and she spun into the next partner! It was a small move but it made it look really choreographed and sweet!
