Some sort of matching game with facts about you and your fiance?  Bees have printed tidbits on napkins and the like…and that could be a cute way to mix people and get them talking and having fun!

Since you are thinking that dancing is out, I think the best wya to make it more "entertaining" is having good conversation starters. Maybe at each table you could have a unique fact about you as a couple that can trigger conversations. People will begin to catch on and start moving table to table to see what the next fact is.

Someone else just posted this find they had as a unique guest book, but it might be another conversation starter… http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17027912 I think this is BEAUTFIFUL!

These are great ideas.

We are also planning a morning wedding and we’d like to have a jazz or classical trio.  We’re not expecting lots of dancing, but live music is always a good conversation starter and if people get the urge to tap their foot, even better!

I am a little worried, like you are, about keeping people occupied.  I almost want to find a friend who could "emcee" and guide the day along.  Nothing too choreographed, but so everything gets done.

Also, there are some fun "games" that can be played.  Instead of the clinking of the glasses to kiss, make the guests act out what they want you to do.  My wedding wouldn’t get this crazy, but it looks like fun! http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/03/20/dw-in-the-dr-dinner-game-hijinks/

My very large, upscale, company holiday party played a "game" that I NEVER, ever expected to see in that kind of setting, but it was a HUGE hit!  It was essentially a musical chairs scavenger hunt.  The emcee chose a handful of people, and then said things like "go find ice" or go find a "man with lipstick".  The people scurried back into the crowd, and everyone tried to help them get whatever it was.  In their haste, the results were pretty funny.  For example, for "man with lipstick", all of the men ended up wearing the lipstick for some reason–instead of "with" they assumed "wearing".  Or with the ice, instead of just getting a glass of ice water, people started fishing out ice cubes and bringing them separately.  It was surprisingly fun in the dressed up setting (the former  state governor is my company’s president, so it’s kind of a ritzy affair) and much more fun that cheesy.  We’re actually considering it for our own reception.
