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!

What's the Basic Wedding Reception Timeline?

I'm not certain about the order of events at the wedding reception. Could you please give a rough timeline of the following events: receiving line, cocktail hour, first dance, champagne toast, best man's and maid of honor's speeches, dinner and cake cutting? I'm so clueless!
