I didnt even think about this. Our ceremony and reception are in the same location so not sure how were doing this part. i think were just having me and my husband walk back up the aisle and the rest of the bridal party can stay up on the stage or something. then me and him can have a few minutes alone, everyone else can get up get the food together on to the food table whats not already out. then our bridal party can come back to the back room with us and we all do our entrance. it seems to work but seems weird that we would be gone and just hanging out in the back room for a long time. or maybe go outside with the photographer and the bridal party for more pictures. idk anyone who is doing or has done the wedding and reception all in one spot? how did you do this part?

Our ceremony and reception are both at our synagogue, although not in the same room. Anyway, after we walk up the aisle, we’ll go into a room ourselves and have a quick bite to eat (since we’ll likely get interrupted too much during the reception) and then do “just married” photos outside with our photographer. During this time, the guests will be at cocktail hour. We’ll join everyone at the reception when we do our grant entrance. So – in answer to your question, I dn’t think it’s weird that you’d be hanging out in the back room. You are entitled to some time to yourselves to process what just happened (and eat)!

My sister and her husband used their first dance to transition from ceremony to reception – just a thought. It turned out really sweet – they just flowed right into it from the kiss.

were doing the dancing after dinner so we’ll be eating first. the back room we would we be in is just our dressing room unless we went outside. then have the guests get their food and have a few people help tear down the ceremony section and set up our head table. meanwhile we can have some alone time or be outside with the photographer. then when everything is ready get the party together and have us all come in.
