Most of the weddings I have been to do the first dances immediately following the entrance/introduction of the bride and groom. They get introduced to the reception and immediately end up on the dance floor for their first dance, the father/daughter follows, and then the MOG and groom. Everyone is seated for dinner already at this point so as soon as the dances are over, dinner is served- leading into toasts and then the cake cutting. I always thought this seemed a bit rushed, but honestly now that I am working on my own timeline, it makes sense because there is simply so much to do in such a short amount of time…. and of course you want some time to have fun at your wedding!!!

We had the first dance after the cake cutting, and then everyone was invited to dance. I think it would be reasonable to have first dance, then father/daughter and mother/son dances, and then allowing everyone on the dance floor. It’s like a gradual introduction to the dance floor.
