So, we won’t be having any dancing at our reception. So all of the possible timelines are out of the window that I cna find online!
We are thinking of having out ceremony starting 5pm (outdoor beach ceremony) to catch the setting sun. And we are having family portraits before the ceremony, including the bride/groom/wedding party. We will have a few shots after the ceremony, but nothing long enough to dictate a cocktail hour for the guests (not that I think-but other thoughts?).
We are having buffet style dinner (tacos!).
No bouqet/garter toss, first dance.

Have it the next day as a lunch so it’s not night time-y and people don’t expect dancing?
Ours is a late lunch, because our ceremony is at 11 am. We arent going to have much dancing except the traditional dances.

Just come up with alternatives to dancing. How many guests are invited?

Most of our guests will be older family, with onlly a few of our friends attending. We are expecting about 50-70 people (unknown RSVPs yet). We’ve told everyone that we won’t have any dancing or DJs.
We are leaving for our honeymoon the next day very early in the morning, so we can’t do anything the next day.
But what alternatives to dancing?

I have been to all types of wedding and have seen it all. Some unique spins have been:
Simon says (This made for hilarious photos!)
Sword Fights (foam swords)
Throwing contests (scaled down versions of all the highland games)
Build the craziest hat (supplies were given to each table(team) B/G were the judges
The sky is really the limit. Just because it hasn’t been done doesn’t mean it shouldn’t. The weddings that had an alternative to dancing were the most fun. All the guests had a blast! The pics were more interesting too.
