I think that’s not a whole lot of time and that people will be all excited for you and want to congratulate you and take personal pictures and things like that. They will also want to stop at the restroom and get situated for dinner too. It would certainly make things a little easier if there was booze on hand, but I think for 1/2 an hour it’ll go by fast and no one will be bored.

Don’t worry. That half hour will go by in a breeze with guests congratulating you and taking pictures with you. I don’t think you need to do anything else to entertain them. They’ll appreciate the time to get to talk to you and your fiance and go to the bathroom and get ready for dinner.

Yeh I wouldn’t worry too much about it either!  People will be busy talking or taking pictures… Drinks would be nice to have but not necessary.

maybe you can just have your guestbook out and old pictures for them to browse.  but yes, like everyone else said, they’ll be greeting you and wanting to take informal pictures with you as you’re mingling around.  then about 15 mins to 5pm, i would suggest for someone (head waiter, maitre ‘d) to ring a bell or a chime to announce for folks to pick up their escort/seating cards and take their seats.  then right at 5pm, you can have the grand entrance and on with dinner and the festivities.  enjoy!

Yah, it would take a half hour anyway for people to figure themselves out and sit down and be ready for dinner, so it shouldn’t be a big deal.  Drinks are nice, but not totally necessary.  We played some fun music during this time — Michael Buble, "lounge"-y music, stuff that’s fun, but not really dance music.  Sort of contributes to the "mix and mingle" atmosphere.
