First of all, at a smaller wedding where most people know each other, they really seem to enjoy hanging out and chatting. Second, you can rent speakers and make a playlist if you want to dance for cheap. Or if you do want lawn games, there are those that don’t cause a problem indoors. I bought cannonball drop to play with my students; it’s goant kerplunk. I’m sure other things fit the bill too.

For what it’s worth, my wedding had 34 guests and mostly we just chatted away. There were other options but people didn’t want them. We danced maybe a half hour to a playlist and my brothers in law hijacked the computer to line dance a bit as well. People know how to entertain themselves and people like me would by far prefer your pleasant brunch to listening to loud dance music they don’t like all night.

We did a brunch daytime wedding. We did not have a DJ. We made a playlist with enough music to last the length of the reception and had that playing in the background. We did a first dance and many guests did dance for a bit afterward, but it wasn’t awkward when people weren’t dancing. Brunch weddings tend to be short and sweet so I don’t think people will be bored.

We had a brunch wedding and few people danced and it was just fine! We actually had a live band but most of our guests preferred catching up with one another rather than dancing. I think you’ll be just fine!

Brunch sound like fun! You can still have good music. Waffles made to order with toppings, a Bloody Mary bar, Mimosas, desserts…if you have good company, good food, good music, good drinks and a comfortable environment everyone will have fun.

I went to a smaller brunch wedding and loved it! There was no dancing, though there was music. The food was served family style at each table, and there were no games. We all talked with each other and just enjoyed the food and ambiance. We all had a great time
