I think what she means is, you would all process out, then stand in line for a receiving line.  Then after all the guests have filtered through and said hi, they could get their bubbles and blow them while you are leaving.

Please consider what your guests might be throwing when you decide.  Rice can be very unhealthy (possibly deadly, depending on who you ask) to birds who eat it off the sidewalk once you’ve left; birdseed and other food products are really good at attracting rats, and confetti (like the birdseed and rice or rose petals or what-not) needs someone to clean it up. Realistically your only choice is going to be the bubbles.

Could you do it at the reception as the bridal party is introduced? Usually the guests arrive before the bridal party anyways, and you could have them lined up inside/outside the reception venue to shower you with bubbles or whatever on the way in. That solves the end of the ceremony issues, and its not at the end of the reception 🙂

Is there a separate room or waiting area away from guests inside the church that you can hang out in while all the guests exit the church? Once everyone is outside, then I would walk out last with your groom so everyone can shower you with bubbles outside the doors of the church.

We exited but through another exit at the back of the church and then circled around while we waited for our guests to get ready with the bubbles.  🙂

Every time I’ve been to a wedding where this has been done, it’s been staged. So, if that’s what you want, you exit and double back around adn then the geusts go outside and you come out again.

Depends on the church, of course, but a lot of them have a little vestibule, or a door leading to a staircase up to the choir loft, balcony, etc., that opens off the entry way. Often the couple will duck in there and wait for everyone to get through, then make their grand exit.
