@coconutcupcake:  Definitely hire a band or DJ. Most dinner parties have them too. We are also doing away with a lot of tradition, so I’m with you there. But you are still hosting a party and need that form of entertainment. If you aren’t looking for a”rager” kind of party  just interview bands and DJ’s that fit the style you are going for.


Hope that helps

At the end of the day, I think you know your guests best and can decide whether they would be happy to just mingle and chat for the evening.  If your guests don’t know each other too well, it could also get uncomfortable for some of them too.  If it’s in the budget, I think I would still book a DJ and have a small dance floor, and then if people choose to mingle instead of dance, there’s no harm done.  I’ve been to weddings before where they didn’t have a dance or DJ, and people just ended up leaving really early because of the lack of entertainment.  You can also interview DJ’s to make sure you’re getting someone who will accomodate to the kind of atmosphere you are going for too.

I also agree that many dinner parties include dancing/DJ’s, so just because you hire one, doesn’t mean would be doing away with your dinner party theme.
