The order of everything is totally up to you.  I would do the first dance before the hora.  I think the first dance is typically early – when you are first introduced or when dancing just starts.  Hora should be more when people are already up on the dance floor having a good time, after dinner.  I would do challah blessing early too – it should probably be before people start eating.  You can definitely annouce just the bride and groom or the whole party – totally up to you.  I would probably do bride/dad and groom/mom dance just after your first dance, but really anywhere it fits is fine.  Sorry, I guess that doesn’t help much.

Hmm. See I think that the hora comes first. Its amazing,I went to 10 weddings last year, most of them jewish, and for the life of me, i have no recollection. One wedding introduced the bridal party, and then they had the first dance, and then we went into the hora…I think. Oy, i need to figure this out too!!

we’re doing our first dance first (right after we’re introduced), then the daddy/daughter and the mom/son dances, then the hora after dinner. it never made sense to me to get everyone up and dancing and then sit in their seats again for dinner! i just think of it as a good way to get people out on the dance floor.

i’m not announcing my bridal party. motzi and kiddush definitely come before anybody eats. we’re doing speeches in between courses.
