Our tentative plan is to get married in the garden of our venue. We would like to have our cocktail hour also in the garden (it's just so gorgeous) and then move inside for dinner, drinks and dancing.
I think cocktail hours are generally used to fill time while the bride and groom are taking pictures but we plan to do that before the ceremony. Is it weird for the bride and groom to be at the cocktail hour with the guests?
So assuming it's fine for us to be at the cocktail hour, what would you do after the ceremony? Should we walk back down the aisle, go inside, hug, kiss and be alone for a few minutes before we come back out to the garden or should we just walk straight back to where the bar will be set up? I am a little unsure.
