So would a booth with "bong hits for jesus" be out of the question? Ok seriously:
How about a string quartet?
also one thing you might want to do with a small group for the ceremony is this(I'm ULC ordained so I occasionally do weddings) friend of mind did it and it was pretty cool:
Would it be against your religion to bring in a performer? A singer or magician?
Wedding can be one of the most important days in lives of the bride and groom, not to mention the familes and friends. It requires long range careful planning, market research, cost control all to be balanced with creating a wonderful experience. Wedding traditions from a family, ettiquette, and religious perspective can be difficult to discover. For those who cannot afford a wedding planner or a cadre of assistants, there are good resources to use as a guidepost to planning one of the most thrilling days a young couple can have.
I was raised strict Baptist, so I'm familiar with how the typical non-dancing receptions work. Usually people show up, mingle for a bit, then eat/speeches/toast/cake like you said. To be honest, generally there's just more mingling, with background music, usually soft and romantic. Lots of pictures taken, etc. Are you having a time where everyone at the reception can tell their favorite memory/story of you and/or your husband-to-be? Those are always good for laughs, and they're definitely memorable!
