Any ideas for activities for a small reception?
FH and I don’t dance,we aren’t doing the bouqet/garter toss or a sit down meal.
I suggested party games with us as the theme but he thinks that’s more of a rehearsal dinner or engagement party thing, and he’s probably right but I don’t know what we do for a reception otherwise.

How small? How many guests?
We’re having a pretty non-traditional wedding as well, but we do have a friend choreographing and performing a dance as a joke. I think party games are a good idea, depending on the game. You can do a lucky draw or break your party into groups to compete against each other.

We didn’t do anything you mentioned except the meal, and it didn’t last long as it was just regular outdoor food on pretty colored plastic plates. Even though it was small everyone knew at least a couple other people, so it was like a nice family/friend get together and everyone kept themselves entertained. With plenty of congrats and talking to us too of course! We had music playing on DH’s mp3 player hooked up to my friend’s son’s boombox. No one danced, but we didn’t intend them to.
I’m not much of a party game person so I’d probably side with your Fiance, but that’s me!

You could maybe even do lawn games after your ceremony if it’s outside? like croquet and stuff?
