I think it sounds like a lovely event — way less stressful for you, too, if you can let go of the “shoulds” or expectations regarding a wedding. What if you had multiple people do toasts, or have a microphone passed around to anyone who would like to share a memory of one/both of you, or even marriage advice or something like that?

I think lawn games is a great alternative to dancing for a dry day-time wedding! Some people get awkward at big social occasions without alcohol, but lawn games give people an activity as well as something that encourages mingling between guests. Especially if you get games that can be played on teams or in big groups (bocce?) 

Since it’s a daytime wedding the fact that it’s dry probably won’t be as big of a deal (and I say this as a pretty heavy drinker 😉 ). And I don’t think many people are going to feel like dancing in the middle of the day while sober anyway.

I drink and dance but I think a dry wedding is fine if done the way you are doing it.  Plan it as a daytime garden party, don’t expect a wild Saturday night party with people dancing until midnight.  I think your plans are fine don’t go crazy with every possible piece of entertainment.  Your guests will eat, chat awhile and head home.

turner1510 :  The shoe game is adorable especially if all of your guests do not know all the details of your courtship.  Just keep the questions around 10-15.  Any more than that and you start to lose their attention.
