When the bridal party entered the reception, I had them each introduced while the DJ played Black Eyed Peas, I got a feeling. Then my husband and I were introduced to Heavy D and the Boyz, Now that we found love. After a few seconds of us dancing, he transitioned to our first dance.
I opted to not have a father/daughter and mother/son dance so that we could all get right to eating and dancing. I feel like each of those little things just takes time away from the party when we also had to stop for the fire dancers at some point as well (but that was just our opinion and how we wanted it). You can work out with the DJ which traditions you want/don't want to do and the corresponding songs. They are are willing to do whatever you want!
