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 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.
