@JenGirl:  how many guest do you plan on having?  that will determine how long this line will take and if it’s longer than 20-30 min, yes, some people may get a bit anxious.

@JenGirl:  that receiving line may take a while.  i think you may need to consider your guests and what they will be doing while they wait.

maybe you can have the receiving line during cocktail hour so that waiting guests will be occupied.  perhaps between the cocktail hour and the dinner?  as guests head towards the dining area, you can receive them.

@JenGirl:  it wouldn’t be a “line” but more like a greet everyone during the cocktail hour.  very informal.  or

your traditional receiving line may take around an hour plus so you can always start it 1 hour before cocktail hour closes and dinner starts.  the guests who go through first wouldn’t have to “sit down” at their dinner tables and wait another hour with nothing to do.  they can continue enjoying the cocktail hour.
