@Jenofdnile:  We aren’t dancers either, but we’re still going to have a dance floor and play music because we love to jam out.  =)

We’re not having a dance at all, and cross your fingers it’ll still go well. We’re going to have a photo booth for entertainment, and there will be background music. We are also going to put out cards and that sort of thing. I know that there will be people who go home on the early end, and we are planning for our reception to end early anyways (bar closes at 11 pm). But I think people will mostly hang out and talk.

SO and I aren’t yet engaged, but when we’ve speculated about our wedding here and there not being big dancers has come up. We even agreed that while we want music, we’ll probably just do with out a DJ since we’d rather hear background music that’s meaningful to us (hello IPOD!!) rather than the “dance jams” that DJ’s tend to think will drive the party. We’ve talked about lawn games. Croquet, Bocce, Horse Shoes, Corn Hole, etc.

Anyone else have an ideas??? We are having a (DW)  beach ceremony and a buffet style dinner at a beach shack type place…Just a room with a bar and piped in ipod, satellite music…I see a lot of sitting around…but there IS a bar in there, and we’re keeping it open all night….

We didn’t have a dance floor for guests either. Actually, we didn’t even have a first dance. We had a LOT of buffet style food to choose from, an open bar, a lake with ducks and frogs, and music. We put a disposable camera on each table to give the guests oppourtunities to take pictures and also opened our gifts and cards at the reception (that added some time and photo oppourtunities.) We mainly did gifts because we had some out of town guests who asked if we would.

while we are not dancers either… we hired a band that we love to play the reception. If some people want to get up and dance so be it…  but we plan on just talking to guests and enjoying the concert

We aren’t dancers, but we are having a band and dance floor. We will do our first dance and stuff, but figure we can just mingle for the bulk of the dance time. You can do lots of game/event things- bouquet toss, garter toss, shoe game (where you lift the shoe of the person who said what), etc- to take up some more time. You can also do a video montage thing with pictures of you guys to take up dancing time.

We are having board games at our wedding, but we know our friends and family will like it.  I think we’re having Jenga, Connect 4, Chutes and Ladders, Checkers, Chess, Life, Rock em Sock em Robots, and some card decks.  If we had more outdoor space, we would do cornhole.

I would think what you do with your friends/ family at other gatherings and go from there.  I’m sure it will be fun no matter what!
