Response: What you want to do is fine and is not uncommon. Be sure when you meet with the DJ that you explain your expectations. One of the 'duties' of a DJ is to get the guests on their feet and on the dance floor, so he/she may initially feel uncomfortable if guests dont dance. Also let the DJ know whether you want specialty dances, such as the Chicken Dance, to occur. Depending on the personality of your DJ, he/she could do things that you dont want. That is why, when dancing is not the focus of the reception, it is often better to have live background music, such as a pianist or a harpist, rather than hiring a DJ. It is less expensive and it is more conducive to conversation and non-dancing activities.
