I am a very traditional bride; in fact, if I had to state a "theme" for my wedding, it would probably have to be "keeping with tradition." The ceremony will take place in a church, and the reception will follow at an event center just down the road. My church is beautiful so I'm thinking of having the send-off directly after the ceremony, as my husband and I are exiting the church, and I'm thinking of having the guest throw colored rose petals, which will look beautiful against my white dress and my beautiful white church. However, any wedding I've ever been to always has the send-off after the reception, when it's already dark and no fun for pictures. I don't want to go against tradition and have the send-off at a weird time...so what do y'all think? Is it weird to have the send-off after the ceremony, as opposed to after the reception?
