What are you doing thats a little different?

I'm currently debating what I want to do about a reception after the ceremony.
Since its not a traditional wedding, I'm wondering what you may have done for a reception that was/will a little different. Since we're only probably going to have about 20 people there, I don't really see the point in having a dance - there just aren't enough people who aren't family, and my family isn't really big on dancing anyway. But at the same time, I don't want to just have a ceremony and thats it for the wedding day - everybody goes off and enjoys thier vacation.
Our ceremony is at 3, so I'm thinking that after the ceremony we have a short cake and champagne reception, then go and take pictures while there is still good light, then have a sit down dinner with our guests in the restaurant. There is a disco at the resort, so I'm thinking that after dinner, if people want (and they aren't too tired from the day) we could just go there and party. Or not. I don't know.
So my question is: What are you doing (if anything) that is different from the traditional wedding reception? Aside from having it at a destination, that is.
Or, if you are doing the whole dinner and dance shindig, where/how are you doing that? What made you decide to do it that way?

We also borrowed this idea from another BDW'er. We had all the women participate in the bouquet toss and all the men participate in the garter toss and the winners of each got a prize. That way, because our group was so small, it felt more like a real bouquet and garter toss with that many people participating. Also, we wouldn't have to single out anybody who was actually single since there were only 4 single women and 1 single man.
