Hi y'all- this isn't exactly etiquette related (feel free to move if more appropriate elsewhere) but I wasn't sure where else to go- I have a few questions about receiving lines! And please forgive my ignorance.
FI and I are thinking of doing a receiving line immediately following our ceremony, but we wanted clarification on a few points.
1. Is it just us doing the receiving, or do our parents (who are hosting) stand with us?
2. What is a good estimate for how long a receiving line with 60-80 guests will take?
3. Not sure if y'all can answer this one without knowing our ceremony venue, but where are receiving lines usually done and how do we let people know where we will be receiving them?
4. Is it customary to do a receiving line AND table visits at the reception or is it more of an either/or thing?
Obviously I'm kind of clueless about this whole process, so any advice is greatly appreciated!
