Any guesses as to how long a receiving line might take, if we did it at the back of the church as guests exit, with approx. 175 guests? We think we'd rather do that than table visits, but we have a relatively limited window for taking family pictures in the church due to confession starting soon after.
Another question - if we don't do the receiving line but still plan to do a "send-off" where everyone's gathered outside the church for our exit, where do we go in the mean time, after we go down the aisle after the ceremony, while our guests file out? It seems like if we just stand at the back of the church and say hi to everyone as they leave, it's basically a receiving line and could take more time than we have - so do we just sort of hide out until they're all outside and then make our exit? Seems weird. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!
