You can still have dancing at a brun reception . . . or are you saying you don’t want dancing?

Hmm, I dunno. I’m sure there are ppl on here who have done brunch receptions.  Maybe just make a final announcement thanking everyone for coming and drive safe?

We had a brunch reception without dancing. People just trickled out – there was no official end. We planned for the cake cutting to be the signifier that the wedding was over, but it was an outdoor reception on a very hot summer day so many of our guests actually took it upon themselves to leave before cake – no big deal. We never had a grand exit which I was totally okay with because we had a petal toss recessional at the ceremony. We just hung out all day at the wedding location – my parents’ house – until our after party that night.

We’re not doing DJ and dancing either! We’ll do exactly what the PP said.. we’ll just thank everyone for coming and hopefully people will start leaving soon after that! Music will be out 30 minutes prior too.

My dad had a lunch wedding and there was no dancing and no formal ending. Everyone just ate lunch, talked, drank, mingled, explored the grounds of the house and enjoyed themselves. Then people just started leaving as they wanted to. Once a bunch of people started leaving my dad and his wife took pictures in the garden and thats when we did family pictures and such. Then we left after taking pictures. It flowed very nicely.

We had a brunch reception without dancing.  We were announced in and then everyone started to eat.  Then when we saw people finishing their food we went in and cut the cake.  We then visited with a few more people. while everyone was enjoying the cake.  While we went to get a few more shots everyone went outside with the bubbles we had for them and lined up to send us off.  We came out through all the bubbles and saw what they did to our car and said goodbye to everyone.  It worked out perfect.

I like the idea of a dance-less brunch reception…it seems much more intimate and comfy, like you don’t have to worry about doing all the traditional stuff. I think it’ll be fine! 🙂

We had a dinner reception with no dancing. After eating cake and talking for a bit after that, people just started to leave. I didn’t want a formal exit. But if you do, you could always make an announcement and do the bubbles/birdseed thing when you leave to the car.

We aren’t having dancing…I’m not sure how we’ll end it.

Probably just start our goodbyes and head out.
