I’m doing all of them… but it should work out fine because I have 2 dad’s so they will each get half of whatever song I pic, and I am letting my FI’s mom pick a song that is special to her for her to dance to. We’re just going the 4 (f/d, m/s, first, and Money) at the beggining, and maybe doing the anniversary dance for all couples in the middle, and then I will be asking the couple that has been married the longest to give us adivice and they will get my boquet. = )

For starters, the money dance is totally area/culture dependent. My eldest brother and sister-in-law did it and everyone had a good time. It wasnt tacky, everyone expected it. But for the crew that was coming to our wedding was different and we didnt feel it appropriate. Chances are, if you’re used to them, so are many of your guests. If you’ve never actually seen one, they might not have either.
As for combining the dances, talk to your parents first. My Dad would have been DEVASTATED if I had cut down "our time"…. but his mom wouldn’t have cared. If feelings are going to get hurt, it is NOT worth saving 60-90 seconds.

I think we’ll be doing our first dance, father/daughter, mother/son, and an anniversary dance (in lieu of a garter/bouquet toss). I hope people don’t get too bored! If so, too bad 🙂 lol

I might also combine some of the dances, just so it doesn’t go on too long. At my cousin’s wedding, they did SO many special dances (bride-groom, bride-father, groom-mother, bride’s parents–some sort of anniversary, wedding party, anniversary dance, Dollar Dance) and people were literally sitting there WAITING to get up and dance. We were pretty bored and everyone was talking about how we wanted to dance.
