I think puzzles may go over well with some people but maybe not all.  What about having a comedian come to perform or hiring a celebrity impersonator?

Do you necessarily NEED entertainment?  It sounds like you are having a lovely dinner to celebrate in a beautiful location.  I’ve been to functions where all that was going on was dinner and some background music and everyone had a lovely time celebrating and visiting with one another.  Add in a few toasts and thank you for coming speeches and I think you will have a lovely reception.

I think it sounds like a good idea. Is there a way you could put different pieces on different tables so guests would have to mingle with all the other tables in order to complete it? Or would that be too comfusing..hmm.

I like the puzzles, but maybe supplement them with something designed to ecourage conversation or as a back-up in case they don’t catch on?

Trivia relating to you and/or your wedding city printed on pretty cardstock in your colors might be a nice alternative.

what about a slide show with photos on a projector. You can have it set to music.

I was thinking a slideshow as well, you could have it running continuously or have it play after dinner–set it to some of your favorite songs.  The reception sounds lovely enough–I’m not into dancing either and would love nothing more than a relaxing evening with friends and family over food. 🙂
