Hi all – I’ve seen (using the handy search button) many reception timelines, I’m wondering if those having traditional Jewish ceremonies could post theirs? I’m not sure when the hora comes in (during the cocktail hour?), if it’s directly after the Yichud or later on before dinner, etc. Thanks!

I can remember 2 Jewish weddings that I’ve been to. One of them had the Hora after the cocktail hour and before dinner. They had hired a special person to lead in all these special dances, including the Hora. It was a lot of fun! The other one had the Hora after dinner to kinda get the dance party going.

I’ve always seen it before dinner. Usually right after cocktail hour, in the ballroom, after introducing the couple, first dance, father/daughter dance, etc.

We did the hora after dinner and toasts to keep the party going – I dont think it matters when you do it!

We plan on doing it right after our first dance after we are introduced.

We were introduced into the horah beginning – it was awesome!

We asked our DJ to pick a point in the dancing when a lot of people were out on the floor and then start it up! It was perfect because people were already on the floor and had good energy going so they got really excited when the hora came on! We had a small venue so there was never any danger of us being too far from the dance floor to participate. It was awesome.
But as far as I know, there are no set rules as to when you do it, so really whatever works best for your reception.
