What are some wedding reception alternatives to the typical dance party?
I'm planning my wedding (next summer) and would like some ideas for the reception. It will be a midmorning wedding with a lunch reception, so the typical drunken dance party doesn't really seem appropriate. Plus, my fiance and I are very introverted, and we want nothing to do with dancing. ... So, what else to do?!? Nearly all of the guests will be traveling to get there, so I want them to still have a good time. (Music will either be spanish guitar or cuban band. Wedding is in New Mexico). Thanks!
My wedding reception was just a nice lunch. We set it up at tables pulled together in a square, with a space in the middle but that way everyone could see each other - rather than one long line of tables where you can only see people sitting around you. We didn't have any activity other than talking, enjoying the meal and watching my husband's family feud with each other.
Any dance either drunken or not makes every one happy.On a day which never comes in your Life again I request you to Dance.
Mexican Guitar is my only instrument when played like your film Hero Bando plays that will make something in me to get up and dance anywhere.
Thanks for your comment skgrao. There will be music, and I am not going to ban my guests from dancing if they wish. But I am interested to hear of other organized activities/events we can include so that the entertainment focus is not 100% dancing.

A close family member has just eloped. You're invited to their "wedding" party. What would be an appropriate gift to give? They insist that they don't want a big deal made, but are known to be greedy.
