I think a nice string ensemble playing covers of modern songs would be wonderful. Maybe a pianist would also work. I agree, though, that a DJ may be too much.

With good drinks, good food, and a good mix of people, you don’t need seperate entertainment. The conversations and laughs will naturally flow and everyone will enjoy the opportunity to catch up and hang out without having to raise their voice to be heard over the music.

If you’re going to be in Miami, I would do your ceremony, short cocktail hour while you take photos, dinner, then a short break to change.  Coordinate a VIP area at a hot club and pay for a second cocktail hour when your guests arrive there.

Yeah, we had a small 23 person wedding. We just did cocktail hour and then a nice dinner. We still did a first dance and a parent dance, but that was it. Everyone had a great time. It only went from 4-8 for the whole evening. But everyone hung out in the bar afterwards. We had half younger and half older people. But really, everyone talking was enough entertainment. I looked at it more like a dinner party then your traditional wedding.

If you ask me, that sounds like a great number of people to have a party!  Rent a suite, have an iPod playing in the background (maybe a few bottles of lickey from a BevMo to help lubricate conversation).  After an hour or so, those who want to dance will make room!  A nightclub would be fun, but I think the intimacy is lost when there’s music so loud no one can have a conversation.
