We are going to dismiss rows but my only question is should we walk to the front of the church or start dismissing from the back of the church? I was leaning towards starting in the back since family has to stay for pics and they will be sitting closer.

We dismissed from the front. Just made more sense to us, but we’d already done all of our family photos. One thought to consider if that if you dismiss family first, they can mingle a bit with your other guests after they’re dismissed.
And for what it’s worth, we LOVED dismissing row by row!

I would do front just so that your families are avaliable for any questions anyone has.

@Gemstone: @MaiFuture: hmmm. I didn’t even think about that dismissing from the front would allow my family to mingle more…I think they would like that 🙂

I’d let my family go first so that they could greet everyone as they exited as well.

I’ve always seen the couple start at the front of the church. Also, it’s alot more organized than having folks just get up and leave on their own which causes traffic jams.
