We had ours after dinner – no issues. I think either option is fine. 🙂

We had dinner 6:30-7:30, cake cutting 7:30, first dance/parent dances 7:45, then bouquet/garter toss. I personally cannot stand bridal party dances so that didn’t happen. After supper was nice because it flowed straight into the tosses then everyone was already on the dance floor to start the dancing. I’ve never seen it before dinner though, I’d hate for my guests to be hungry and ready to eat but they have to sit and watch us dance! However mine and most weddings I’ve been to had a buffet on the dance floor so that kinda prevents dancing before anyways.

We are hoping for a packed dance floor all night — including between meals, so I think our plan is to enter the room and go right into the first dance just to sort of kick things off.

Immediately after introductions. Then we cut the cake, ate dinner, then father/daughter and mother/son dances while everyone finished eating. It worked out perfectly.

Kacie209:  We’re planning to go right into the first dance after our grand entrance. We’ll be on the dance floor with everyone around us, so that can save us a little transition time. Also our guests shouldn’t be too hungry because they’ll have just finished cocktail hour and there will be plenty of appetizers!

We did ours right after dinner so that it was the first dance to kick off the dancing.  We did mother/son father/daughter dances as well but we did not do bridal party dances.  We didn’t do bouquet/garter tosses either.  We had our speeches right after introductions.

Kacie209:  We had ours after dinner and cupcakes. We did sort of a grand march type deal with the wedding party, and then we did our first dance.

We did it right after dinner and the 2 planned speeches.  Then the mother-son father-daughter dance, which morphed into an open dance floor partly through the song.

We did it after the cake and speeches so it could segue right into the dancing.

Kacie209:  our first dance was right after we were announced in the reception. WE came in, did a little dance to our entrance song, went under the bridge of the bridal party ( you know when the BMs and Groomsmen put their bouquets/hands in the air and form a bridge lol)
