@ssttpp:  I think it depends on the feel and location of your wedding. I have always adored weddings with old-timey games. That could be a lovely alternative

We’re in the same situation. We have about 10 board games to put out (I have everything from Hungry, Hungry Hippos for the pre-schoolers to card games for the older set) and a photo booth. I’m hoping people will mingle and eat lots of dessert. We also have music in the background. But I think that you need to recognize that without a dance, it simply won’t go as late. We’re serving a fancier dinner than is usual in our circles and starting a little later.

@ssttpp:  PM me if you want my timeline that I have worked out. 

My motto from the very beginning is that we’re throwing an elegant dinner party for those who want to witness our vows. Stick to your guns – you’re going to have a lot of backlash. I’ve had people who don’t dance ask me how I’m going to entertain my guests; I think they can entertain themselves.
