The song I chose is kinda short, its 3.22 total but that includes the outro which you cant really dance to, so the actual song its about 2.50, I have garage band on my laptop and I’m thinking of looping the song so the chorus repeats a couple more times cos I’m thinking its kinda too short. How long is your song

we picked one that is 2 minutes 30 seconds. we thought it will probably feel like 20 minutes because neither of us love being in the spotlight, so we are keeping it short and sweet!

Ours was 2min 56 sec and was fine for length.

Ours is 2min 30 seconds too, which i think is just right. no need for it to be long i think.

Ours is 3:57…. now I’m worried it’s too long! 🙂
We’ve (tipsy-ly) practiced in our living room a few times though – it’s an upbeat song and I’m a terrible dancer, but I think we’ll be ok.

Ours is around 2:30 I think. I figure that’ll be enough because it always seems so awkward to have everyone just staring at you…lol

ours was ridiculously long – it was a dave mathews song, and seriously like 9 minutes long on some versions
we had the bridal party join in after like 2 minutes, and that felt perfect, and then shortened the song before the long, drawn out, “jam-bandy-ness”

3 min 10 sec. We wanted to keep it sorta short, too.

I guess alot of people have short songs then.. the reason I was worried was ’cause most weddings I’ve been to the 1st dance was always atleast 4mins so that the intro was playing when the couple started walking to the dance floor.. I dont know I may be over thinking this..

Ours is 4:30 but I feel like that’s waaay too long (Faithfull by Journey). We haven’t practiced dancing to it yet, but I think I should find a way to shorten it, or ask the DJ to help shorten it, because 4 minutes is a long time to force everyone to watch us dance haha. I think a little more than 2 minutes is perfect!

Whatever song we do we probably won’t dance the whole way through. I read that its suggested you keep it about 90 seconds.II ‘d really like to have it MAX out at 2 mins. I think thats fair with a fade into a fast dance number so our guests can party down.

Our song is 6 min 26 sec long. I really do not want to cut it down becuase it’s a really pretty song, so I am going to have to talk to our DJ to see how we can make it work.
