    What about getting a muscian or 2 to play ceremony-dinner. Then maybe hire a DJ for the reception with a plan to have the music slowly start and maybe get to some line dancing/jives an hour or so after dinner when people start to move around.

    I’d definitely recommend getting a microphone for the ceremony, regardless of whether you end up with a DJ or live musicians. The most cost-effective route would probably be to just hire a DJ for the whole thing – ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception. It’ll also give you the most options/flexibility for the choice of music played at each time, but live music is always wonderful. We had a mic set up for the ceremony, and a harpist who played for the ceremony and the cocktail hour. She was amazing, and the music as I walked down the aisle was more than perfect. We had a DJ for the reception and dancing afterwards. It worked out great! 🙂
