My dad would like to dance with me to Whitney Houston “I Will Always Love You” for the father/daughter dance at our reception. The song is 4 1/2 minutes long, so I was looking for a good place to fade out after 2-3 minutes. I realized though, that I really love the second half of the song more than the first half for a father/daughter dance. Do you think it would be weird to start the dance half way through the song? I’m looking to start it during the instrumental part at about 2:09 minutes in, and then play the remainder of the song.

I don’t think it would sound wierd. Just check with your dj and see if he can fade in the song at that point.

If you’re having a DJ I would talk to them to see how the song can be cut. Our DJ was able to cut some songs or fade away others so they didn’t sound weird so I’m sure any decent DJ could make it work if there’s a good start point to pick up from.

The song i had was about 5-6 minutes long, it was a mash-up of Somewhere over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World (looooove this version) and i had the band invite all guests onto the dane floor at the middle mark.

Our first dance song has a really slow/sad beginning. We had the dj start it off quietly while the MC announced our first dance and then slowly fade up while we walked out to the dance floor. It worked perfectly.

My husband and I wanted to do this with our first dance song. Our DJ said he could do it but then it didn’t actually happen. Honestly, I was way too happy to even care at that point. I hope it works out for you.

The dj invited our guests to join us half way through the song, but it was more because we didn’t want our guests to have around and watch us do a lot of dances.
Mexipeno has a good idea too.
