My soon to be husband and I are having a large wedding of about 300 people. I know it won't be possible to visit everyone at their tables at the reception (plus I want to dance) so I was trying to figure something out for after the ceremony.
What I was thinking was, we walk down the aisle along with our wedding party and my groom and I loop back around and dismiss all the guests from their pews. Then, we will walk through the front doors of the church, with everyone outside blowing bubbles at us for our 'send off.' We hop into the limo and take a 5-10 minute cruise to allow everyone to get into their cars and clear out and then return to the church for pictures.
What are your thoughts? Have you done this kind of dismissal? How long did it take?
