We’re having a very small, intimate wedding. The Guest list is at 42, and that’s including my fiance and I. We still want to dance but I feel DJ/band would be too much.
We considering hiring a pianist for the reception…and I dont know, is this enough?

@Aimirin: Would you guys consider doing an iPod playlist? That way you guys can have all different forms of music there (if you choose)… IMHO I just feel like piano would limit the dancing that you said you want there and an iPod would be pretty budget friendly!!

I think it depends on what kind of wedding you want. A pianist is probably not going to play current dance music in a way that people want to dance to. I think an iPod would be better.

Thanks, ladies .:-) We want something calm. Couples to dance slow, nothing like a dance party. it is a historical venue so IPOD is perhaps a litte bit too modern for this.
I do not want the sound to be too much quiet 🙁 You know what I mean?

We have a similar historical venue – what about hiring a 3 piece jazz band? That would be great for the reception.

If you’re worried about variety, the pianist isn’t going to give you much.
If you’re worried about the dance-ability of piano music, I think it would be fun and kind of retro! I would definitely go for a piano over an iPod. To jazz it up a bit you could add a base player or maybe a singer. I think it’s a great idea

I adore this idea. I would love so much to be able to hire a pianist or jazz trio, or to go to a wedding with one, but its a little early in my planning to decide. 🙂

I think a piano alone will not encourage dancing. I like the idea of a trio. A singer would be great so he/she can encourage people to get up and dance.

What about doing an iPod for more dance music? I personally prefer fun music like that.
Also, I am thinking piano music would only really offer slow two person type dance music. What about your single friends?

Personally I think a pianist alone would be too sleepy.

I love the idea of pianist/singer duo!
