    Unless you’re great dances, swaying in a circle gets boring after about a minute. 1.5 minutes will be fine. 3 would be too much.

    Our song was several minutes long, and I was practically dying from how awkard I felt, lol! I was literally motioning to the DJ to cut it short! 

    (and I am NOT someone who minds being the center and having eveyrone look at me!)

    Short dances are mercy for your guests. Keep ’em short! Just make sure your DJ doesn’t start them until you are out to the dance floor so your parents don’t feel like they missed out.

    Ours is 2 minutes 30 seconds, but Fiance is dancing with his mom and I am dancing with my dad both at the same time to that song.

    I have a different perspective as a guest… Unless your song is incredibly long (like 6min each), play the whole song. I find it odd when people fade them out, and it kind of annoys me because it’s usually before the best part of the song. I don’t care if you’re just swaying, or doing some fancy dance.

    That’s just me though. If you’re uncomfortable, fade it out.
