    @TipsyTeaPot:  My FI and I aren’t into dancing much either. We are going to have the first dance and the father/daughter mother/son dances but we won’t participate in any more than those. We will have some other dance music for people who want to dance, but won’t have a DJ. We are getting married in Hawaii on the beach, so I am actually going to surprise my FI and guests with a traditional Hawaii fire dancer and hula dancer with two drummers. There is a small stage on the sandy coconut grove where the reception will be and we are going to have blankets for people to sit on the sand and enjoy the show! Not to mention that the whole thing is going to be at sunset on the beach. 

    I think this will keep them entertained.

    We are having a dance party. But I been to several weddings kind of like yours without a lot of dancing. One was a garden cocktail party and it end early too at seven. They just had jazz quartet playing and everyone mingled and ate, and played lawn games. I also went to a wedding brunch that had little dancing and ended early also.

    I think it will work fine for your wedding because you are having a shorter reception. Anyone who wants to dance can go somewhere after.

    We had an afternoon Sunday wedding with an iPod playing in the background.  we did not serve alcohol and all our guests had an amazing time, they visited with other guests and used the DIY photo booth and toured the heritage house.
