    Play it all back-to-back in one block of music

    Spread it out over the reception and mix in polka songs with the other music

    I can see benefits of both! I think your Fiance pointed out the benefits of spacing the songs out – it might give others the opportunity to take a break. However, I’ve also seen it happen with slow songs where a ton of people are on the dance floor, there’s a slow song so the “fun and crazy” crowd take a break, and when dancing music comes on again it never gets the same momentum.

    If it were me I would play the polka music in one block, and early. Not sure what time your music is starting but I would do 20-35 mins max. The older generation will appreciate it but it won’t be too much for the younger folks. Who knows, some adventurous younger people might do a polka or two if they know how, or if they’ve had enough to drink at that point. Otherwise it gives a little time for dinner to settle anyways. Then it can be full blown party mode after that, and you won’t end up having a polka play at like 10:30 pm after all the older folks have left anyways.
