We are planning to do the first dance right after introduction, then be seated for dinner. Part of me feels that this is sort of an awkward transition, and it would make more sense to do the first dance after dinner when dancing would start. But then we would have to push the parent dances back. What are you doing?

I have never been to a wedding where the first dance was before dinner, although it does appear to be common. Because it’s what I’m used to, I like it when the first dance is after dinner, right before the general dancing starts. Also, most people are hungry by the time introductions start and I’d hate to keep people waiting for food while watching us dance!
