I had no dancing. We did the tosses and speeches and cake cutting to try to keep some things interesting. Walked around and mingled with them a bit, but mostly they just left once they finished eating and socializing (which was no problem by us! I was SO ready to get out of my dress because of the corest crushing my ribs, and it gave hubs and I time to undwind and enjoy each othe rinstead of being too tired). I recently read about an I Spy game on weddingbee that sounded like a lot of fun. People had a list of things to find, and then they’d take a picture of it with a disposable camera once they got it.

People love to EAT and DRINK – that is entertainment !     How long is your reception expected to last ?      Only if it’s 3 hours + would I recommend something else.

I’ve been to plenty of weddings like this. I will say that if most of your guests expect dancing, they may be a bit bored and want to leave early. Even though a slideshow and speeches will be entertaining, they will want something they can do themselves rather than spectating! Why not have a photobooth they can visit during the meal or after dinner? Or a make-it-yourself sundae bar? Something where they can get up and move around I think will add to your reception!
