@Miss Smiles: I actually think having a jazz band would be nice. Most people expect to dance at a wedding and there’s nothing wrong with obliging them. If you don’t like the idea of dancing you could make food the highlight/entertainment. If the meal takes over the entire reception; no one will dance but you’ll still have have great background mmusic (completely essential). You can have food stations, displays and interactive dining. Also, not food related, you can have a watercolor artist, silhouette artist, photobooth, lawn games, and/or karaoke.

I love the idea of a brunch wedding..doughnuts, bloody mary bar, mimosas, waffle station, omlet station…

I’ve seen fun outdoor brunch weddings that have lawn games such as bocce ball or croquet.

We’re doing a brunch wedding (indoors) at the golf club.  Also not planning to dance.  We have a string quartet to provide music from 10-2, and have hired a sketch artist instead of a photographer for the same period of time to do caricature portraits of the guests.  Beyond that, we’re planning just conversation and socializing (although I did let slip to several guests that I would not be at all offended if after the meal they wanted to slip away for a round of golf.  I don’t play but I’ve been told its a very nice golf course 🙂

We’re doing a brunch wedding in September and aren’t too worried about entertainment — we hope our guests like each other enough to mingle some! We’ll have a jazz trio playing throughout and a small dance floor for those so inclined, a lounge area and an outdoor terrace.

My advice: look at your timeline and decide if you’ll have a lot of downtime. We’re having a four hour reception, with a coffee hour, toasts, brunch, a first dance and doughnut cutting, there will only be about an hour before we exit, so even if we had activities, there wouldn’t be much time to do them.

larissakay:  We had a similar schedule for our brunch wedding and it worked great. It started at 11 AM and was over by 3 PM. By the time we had the cocktail hour, brunch, dances, speeches, bouquet toss, cake cutting, etc., there wasn’t a whole lot of time for much else.
