    My sister did theres at the beginning – right after the first dances.  It was a great way to get everyone pumped up!

    We did it sometime in the middle of the dancing. That would not have been my preference- would have rather done it in the beginning- but the band and planner messed up the order.

    Doing it at the beginning is the best part of a wedding and makes welcoming the new couple even more special.  I wouldn’t do it any time else personally.

    We did ours at the begining right after the first dance. It was perfect and got everyone in a dancing mood.

    We did it right away! It really gets the party going. Our guests were having cocktail hour while we took pics. As soon as we arrived the DJ had everyone gather around the dance floor for introductions of the family and bridal party then finally us. The second we got down the aisle the hora started! It was perfect!

    This was a big discussion in our family too. My parents wanted it in the middle but everyone else advised us to do it right after dinner (our ‘first dance’ was before the meal).  We ended up taking the advice. The beauty of having it be the first real song the DJ plays is that it gets everyone onto the dance floor and really starts the party off on a fun, upbeat note.

    In process of planning ours, but we’ve both decided it’s best at the beginning.

    Been to 2 Jewish weddings in the past year, saw a beginning and a middle of the reception hora and it was VERY different feelings. One seemed rather natural right at the beginning, the other was after the main dinner course of a heavy prime rib. You can imagine the feeling of those dancing after the meal. 

    Mazel tov! 🙂
