A lot of people danced at my wedding.  But, my husband is Persian, and the Iranians like to get down!

You don’t have to have dancing or a “DJ” at your reception but you still must to provide entertainment for your guests. You also need to have a time line and someone to act as your spokesperson or “Master of Ceremonies” to keep things flowing. Some of the better “DJ’s” routinely do all of that and more, others DJ’s just spin tunes.

You could have a friend do the MC honors or you could hire a professional Wedding Host/DJ. If price is your major concern, the friend MC and an Ipod for background music might be a solution but you still have to rent a PA and put together a play list that will not chase your guests away prematurely.

An excellent book on wedding reception entertainment is “The Best Wedding Reception Ever” by Peter Merry. Get the hardcover version, it is the latest version and contains much more info and ideas.

Two answer your question…. More than half of the guests dance at the weddings we have hosted. The others enjoy watching and sharing conversation during the dancing part of the celebration. A good reason to insure the music volume does not make it difficult to hold a conversation away from the dance floor.
