Okay bees, we are having a small wedding of about 75 people and I am terrified that people will get bored during our reception!
What are some alternative entertainment options that I should look into if our guests aren’t really into dancing? We are hiring a DJ regardless but I want our guests to have plenty of options.
Weddings very rarely drift away from the cake and punch receptions in my area so we want to go all out and show our guests a great time!

Honestly you don’t need anything. We had some fun board games and no one touched them. we had frisbee and a football (casual wedding) and they were played with maybe an hour as the weather wasn’t great. People enjoyed just hanging out, catching up. And even though we did not have a DJ, they still danced for a half hour or so if they wanted to. Heck, I rarely dance at weddings as they usually play music I hate, but I’ve never had a bad time (unless I’m there all alone). Trust that all will go well!

I don’t like to dance, but I’d be just content with hanging out chatting with people. I don’t know that people would necessarily be into board games, but maybe cornhole or giant jenga like you see at bars would work.

We’re going to have lawn games and a watercolor portrait artist who is going to paint 5 minute portraits.

Friends of mine had board games that went down well among the non dancers.

As a non dancer, not even dancing at my own wedding, you really don’t need to go all out. Its a wedding, not a cirque du soleil show. Food, alcohol, music, good people = great time. 😁 But if it helps board games are awesome with majority of my crowd so even with a DJ there will still be optional games on a couple tables and I’ll be that weird bride having a fabulous time slamming bones with her drunk uncle. This is really a know your crowd thing though. We’re the serious flipping Monopoly board types.

We had a a fire pit, so we did a smores bar. Our venue was also in the mountains and had some nice seating areas out on the deck with a gorgeous view of the valley. And there were some lighted trails on the grounds for people to walk around. We had a dancing crowd, but we had about 2.5 hours of dancing – even the best dancers enjoyed the snores bar when they needed a break. Cornhole is also a fun one at weddings, and photo booths are pretty popular as well.

I find that if you have good food and alcohol that’s really all the entertainment people need haha.
Photobooths and lawn games are also pretty popular!
