@sarah0509w:  I am considering a fake sendoff, so that we don’t have to pay a photographer for so many hours. I want prep photos and we’re planning a long reception dance, so I am considering having everyone faking it and then we can get back to dancing and I won’t have to worry about what I look like anymore! I am not yet decided. I’ve gotten mixed reviews when I ask people. I’ll be eager to see what other brides say too!

@sarah0509w:  Have the send off outside the church. Your guests can then make their way to the cocktail hour , while you go back inside to get pictures taken, then go to Michigan State. I can almst guarantee that the family pics will take longer than 15-20 minutes.

@sarah0509w:  I’ve done it and been at a wedding where they did it!

People waited outside after the receiving line, and once the line was done, we came out to a huge flurry of bubbles!

The pictures were great!

Then we took some pictures outside the church, and got our family photos, while the guests were headed to the reception for the cocktail hour!

I just went to a wedding that did a bubble send off, then the bride and groom went around the block while everyone left and they came back to the church to do something similar.   The two of us are having a champagne toast right outside the limo (pretty much the only just him and me moment of the wedding).  Our get away will be us walking up to the limo for the toast.   We are hoping that enough people will just leave, if not we will get in the limo and ride around the block to do all the pictures.  Like you all the pictures will be after the ceremony.
