We are in a somewhat similar situation.  We are having about 50-60 people, so bigger than yours, and it’s at night.  Our reception is at a nice resturant.  We are using their speakers and rented a very small dance floor.  We really want to do a first dance, so we are and then we are just going to play an iPod playlist that we put together.  If people dance, they dance; if they don’t, well, that’s fine too.  We’re only out the time we took putting together the playlist and then cost of the dance floor (which isn’t a total loss because we’ll still get to have our first dance).  It’s going to be totally fine, and I would do exactly what you plan on doing.

We have the same thing as you.  30 guests and no DJ.  We are having an afternoon ceremony and then a plated sit down meal after, and the venue said we could plug in an iPod if we wanted for a first dance or during dinner (or just have the restaurant music playing).  We aren’t doing a first dance, but I certainly wouldn’t find it strange if someone did.  It’s tradition! And honestly, I think it would be more odd to have a loud, booming DJ for just 30 people.  

Like it was said above, with a smaller group it will be quieter (and a lot of times at wedding, it’s the DJ that makes it so loud) so I don’t think you have to worry about the volume for your dance.  These are 30 of your closes family and friends – they love you and it will be wonderful!
