We’re having a brunch reception – it’ll kick off around 1230, and we have the venue until 3pm.
I’m trying to figure out if I should book a DJ or live music or what. Will people dance at that time? There’ll be a full open bar available. I’ve never been to a daytime wedding reception so I don’t really know what happens 🙂

I’ve never been to a daytime reception, so I honestly don’t know, but I am kind of doubtful that people would dance. Having a musician, maybe a pianist or small band, playing during the reception would be a nice touch though for background music.

@Moraz: A brunch reception doesn’t strike me as a “dance party” kind of affair. I’d have music there with a DJ but lower my expectations and not expect a big crowd on the dance floor.

@Moraz: I’ve been at daytime receptions where people danced; even dry ones. But it won’t be the same as an evening reception and you may have to recruit a few of your more outgoing friends or relatives to get things started.

We’re doing the same thing, with our venue ending at 3 and an open bar!
I am actually super THRILLED, it means we get the whole evening to ourselves and we won’t be totally pooped!
I’m sure there will be plenty of people dancing and having a great time just the same as an evening wedding.
Congrats daytime twinsie!

@Moraz: It really depends on your guests! We’re having our brunch reception from 12-5 (12-2 is “cocktail hour”/food/mimosas and bloody marys/etc) and a friend is DJing from 2-5. We have so many friends who seriously want to dance that there was no question.
