All of our portraits will be taken directly after the ceremony. How would we manage/time the receiving line around this? My parents are not hosting, so we would like only the bride and groom to be in the receiving line to speed things along. We need the wedding party and our entire family to be in photos, however. How do we manage this, and not have them just standing around waiting for us for 20 minutes?
Our wedding will be a cocktail reception with about 110 guests. The reception is located straight down a hallway through double doors to the reception hall. I'm very open to table visits, but since our reception is only about 3, maybe 3 and a half hours not including photography time and we still have all the traditional works and dancing, it seems to me like table visits to everyone aren't very realistic. Our guests are very laidback, and I know the groom and I would love the time to just hang out with them.
