Wedding Reception Etiquette: Reception Dancing in the Evening Only?

Q:

I am having an afternoon wedding. Is it okay to have dancing at the wedding reception, or is that usually for evening weddings?

A:

It's perfectly okay to have dancing at your wedding reception , no matter what time of day. Breakfast reception boogying isn't quite as popular, but who knows what next year's trend might be? As far as your afternoon wedding reception is concerned -- go for it!
