We had 16 people at our reception including us and just had a dinner reception with everyone in a restaurant.  I was worried too but everyone had such a good time.  It lasted about three and a half hours.  We were able to interact with all of our guests and in between dinner, conversation, speeches/toasts, and cake, we didn’t even miss dancing or any kind of games/tosses.  

ETA: Our cocktail hour was supposed to start at 6:30 but because the wedding started late started around 7.  Dinner started at 7:30 and the reception ended around 10:30 if that helps anyone with timing.

I was worried but now I am not. My rough guest list is sitting at 60 people and I am expecting 50 to come. We will be playing music, but no dancing and no games. Just dinner and light conversation. I am hoping the whole thing will be wrapped up by 10pm or so.

We had less than 30 people, but no family and all friends (we don’t live near family, and so had separate events for them).  We did do dancing, but we also had a ton of fun just sitting around a bonfire and talking.  I wouldn’t worry as long as all the people you are inviting are people you want to spend time with (which is usually the case at a small wedding, that’s kind of the point).
