    The order will vary from wedding to wedding; there is no one RIGHT way.

    I did it this way:  intros, first dance, challah blessing, speeches/toasts, dinner, hora.

    We did: intro, first dance, hora, motzi, welcome speech/toast, meal, parent dances, more open dancing.  Our ceremony started at 1, though, so it was a daytime wedding.
