Let people eat, drink, talk to each other, and generally behave like adults–no party games.

My best friend had a small venue and although there wasn’t a lot of room for dancing we still danced they just had music playing on a sound system, but prior to that they had 1 musician that was playing an acoustic guitar prior to the wedding/during cocktails. It was great!

so for my engagement party (but also works for a wedding) we had little board games on all the tables. Im from Australia but I found 5$ board games at Kmart here that were all wood and rustic looking – we had jenga, chess , checkers, connect 4, battle ship and a couple card games

ive attached some pictures- obviously this is more casual backyard but it can look really nice done up more formally

rubilove :  We had our reception at a bar, had about 65 people and I was really worried that it would be “boring” especially since we didn’t have a true dance floor or a DJ to to pump people up but it ended up being great. We had appetizers and lots of alcohol so people were just mingling, eating, dancing, etc. 

Don’t worry about adding extra entertainment, just let people enjoy the party.
