    People will dance. I was in a wedding last year that started at 11/1130 and we all danced all day until they kicked us out.

    I don’t know if the colored lights are worth it though you won’t really see them in the daylight.

    That is not too early for dancing. My friend had a wedding at 11am, with a reception immediately following, and people definitely danced their butts off.

    I had a friend who did her wedding with the same exact timeline.  We danced a little but nothing in compared to what we would normally dance at an evening wedding.  Even still, we had a great time.

    @hugsie: Honestly, she started with a DJ and her Dad’s band played the other half. You know your guests, you’ve been to events with them in the past, what gets them up and grooving?

    I wouldn’t dance, but I need a drink or two first before I can get on the dance floor.

    I think it all depends on the vibe and if you and your wedding party dance!

    My cousins wedding was at noon.  At the beginning everyone was out there dancing and having a good time.  But as soon as the newlyweds and bridal party exited the dance floor everything sort of died down. 

    So i guess the best way to go about it is just keep the momentum going =)  maybe do your cake cutting and all those other events before the first dance so the dancing goes straight through? 

    We had a blast at my cousins wedding either way!!!

    I probably wouldn’t dance as much as at an evening wedding, for several reasons:

    1. It tends to be hotter in the day, without the option to go somewhere to “cool down” – I’d run out of steam faster.

    2. I also need a drink or two to get going dancing, probably more if it’s bright daylight and not a dimly-lit dance floor. However, I also wouldn’t want to be drunk at your wedding, so I may just find a happy medium and only dance for the really compelling songs.

    But that’s just me – I know people who would dance if you threw it at 8:30 in the morning. Everyone will have a wonderful time either way!

    I don’t know how other people feel about it, but I was thinking about it a bit more, and I think music would make a huge difference to me in a daytime wedding. I would be much more inclined to dance to feel good classics rather than the club-like dance songs. Something that people can sing along to, jump around to, etc, rather than the type of songs that feel like you should be bumping and grinding to. I think it’s a great opportunity to explore songs that you don’t hear on a dance floor very much, along with the go-to dance floor fillers.

    It totally depends on your guests. Some people will dance at any hour and others prefer to dance in the evening. Others will enjoy the music but don’t want to actually dance. Neither is right or wrong. Make sure the dj plays a good variety of music, and don’t be offended if some people dance and others don’t.
