I agree shorten the first dance song. Many times after 2.5 minutes guests start conversations and ignore the couple. It is even worse with father/daughter and mother/son songs, where after a minute I need to turn up the volume just so they can hear the song they are dancing to.
I prefer the bride and groom do a slow song. It is easier to photograph, adds to the dignity of the event, and is easier for them to dance to in front of a crowd.

Idea #5. Ask the client ahead of time if they would like to have everyone join them say after a minute and a half. I find that this solves the anxiety issue of being in the spotlight for so long, allows FULL use of the tune, AND involves the rest of the guests, AND solves the rude conversation problems during first dance. Win x 4.

Idea 5a(make this into a longest married couple dance, snowball dance etc(insert favorite get everyone involved idea at the beginning of the reception)

Some good thoughts there. We tell our couples to make the song theirs (slow, fast, multiple songs mixed, etc), just so long as the song means something to them.

Noted, though I guess that's what I though #1 was - I'll clear it up to include more than just the wedding party.
