Maybe you could make a lengthy meal. I am having a Sunday evening wedding in Aug and I know very few of our guests are going to be dencing. I arranged for a served dinner with various courses to fill the time and allow people to talk without loud music interupting. I will also have more of a social atmosphere with cocktails, appetizers and once again low background music for better mingling.

I think something social with some nice background music would be nice.  If you’re thinking the outdoor grilling idea, you could always set up some lawn games.  I’d just make it really casual and set up for people to mingle as they please.

We had a Sunday afternoon wedding (ceremony started at 4 pm), with a small group of people and it was great!  We had a DJ, but it was mostly because we wanted to do the traditional dances.  A few people got up to dance, we have some AWESOME pics of my nephew, but most people didn’t.  I think it would be nice to have some background music, though, if you can swing an iPod set-up or rent/borrow some equipment.  We also had an open limited bar (just beer and wine) and majorly overestimated how much booze we needed.  I would say we had more than half leftover after the wedding.  Besides overestimating how much people would drink, we also planned for it to go until 10 pm; actually everyone left by about 9 or 9:30, so be aware that it might end earlier than you think. 

For activities, we did photo scavenger hunt cards where guests could "go on the hunt" for specific things to take pictures of.  However, Mrs. Sea Breeze posted about a game her guests played at the reception, and I thought it was such a great idea for a small wedding.  Here’s the link to her post:

@Mrs. Spring: Can you PM me with how much alcohol you bought, how much was drank and how many guests you had? We are facing the same dilemma! We are buying all of our beer and wine at Sam’s Club, but I’d like to have a better idea of how much to buy! Thanks!!!
