Ooooh can you hire a small jazz band? We did that for a food tasting event and it was wonderful.

I might consider a photo booth. You would get silly/fun pics of all your guests and I’m sure the kids would have a blast with it.

Do you mean entertainment as if stuff for the people to do? I would be afraid of taking too much away from the dancing?

People have very specific opinions about band vs DJ

Bands are great because they are live… but typically they only play one kind (or two) of music well and can’t very the selection very well 

A DJ can play anything based on the requests and mood of the guests, but you do lose that life vibe.

And the cost can be a deciding factor.

Go see some local bands and see what their repertoire is. and then decide.

You may like the idea of doing 1/2 and 1/2 a live band for the first have and then a DJ later.

I know its been a little while since your last comment… but have you come up with an idea for entertainment? I am also having a small wedding (60ppl max) and I too am stumped for entertainment. I was thinking about running a small LCD screen and having photos of our 6 year ‘courtship’ as well as pics from our trip to Europe to get conversation started… but that was it. I am worried people might get a bit bored 🙁
