I had this random thought in the wee hours of the morning when I was barely awake. Has anyone else worried about this? We’re doing ceremony and reception at a historic inn for Sunday brunch – jazz band, no dancing, brunch buffet, open bar (wine, beer, mimosas and bloody marys), dessert bar, candy bar, homemade photo booth and cigars. Does that sounds reasonable? Why am I worrying about this? Will people be able to entertain themselves without dancing?

I think it sounds awesome, and I’d be thrilled if that were a wedding I were at.
But really, if they don’t love the wedding, who cares? All that matters is that you and your Fiance love it!

You had me at “brunch”!! Anytime there is brunch & mimosas you’ve got happy people. Don’t stress, I’m sure everyone will enjoy themselves 🙂

Seriously, if they don’t like it, their loss.

Ok thanks. I’m not fishing for attention. I was just really concerned this morning out of nowhere!

Brunch and bloody mary’s are some of my FAVORITE things!
Sounds like an awesome wedding.

Your guests are coming because they love the two of you, so as long as you’re there getting married, I’m sure they’ll be happy! Even if that weren’t the case, your reception sounds wonderful. The live entertainment and dessert/candy bar would keep me happy!

Perhaps this isn’t the best and most supportive answer, but teh way I see it, at least one person isn’t going to absolutely love my wedding. However, as long as my partner and I are happy, anything else is icing on the cake. I fully expect my grandmother to not be having a good time (but this is the woman who wears black to weddings – including her favorite child’s where she walked around going “I lost another one”). All that aside, your wedding sounds like a blast! I love the description, especially teh jazz band!

Your wedding sounds awesome. In fact, that is exactly the wedding I wanted to have (but our venue isn’t available during the day)!

Sounds wonderful! Good friends of ours had no dancing or DJ at their reception (at a nice restaurant), and everyone enjoyed themselves. It was nice just to talk and get to know the people at our table. It was a great evening!

It sounds perfect. Besides you do have a jazz band—and if people really, really want to dance, they will find a way! I have been to office parties, networking, events and other functions were there was supposed to be no dancing, but you’d be surprised how things ended up. The real mark of a true party is how things flow and come together organically. As the host you give the perfect ingredients and your guests all mix together and end up making the perfect day to share with you!

It sounds good to me! I’m sure that if your guests are there for the right reasons (they love and support you), then they won’t be overly critical of your wedding.
