@mtbikelover:  We did our table visits VERY quickly, pretty much just hugged, said a few words and moved on.  Just over 100 guests in about 20 minutes.  Some people will want to say more to you, but the majority will just say a short congrats.

 

If you don’t get to see everyone don’t worry about it, they know this is the busiest day for you and will hopefully come up and see you before they leave.

 

Are you going around when guests are eating?  It might be awkward if they get up, huge you, are chewing, etc.  Just a thought…

 

What’s your guest count?

 

P.S. Make sure you make photo booth a priority for the evening, we had one and have zero pics of me and DH in them!  I got a few with friends but it was a crazy evening and there was just too much to do!

@mtbikelover:  30 minutes should be plenty of time.  Try to make sure guests stay seated while you say hi and thank you; if they’re seated you can go around the table rather than waiting for them to get up and come to you.  Once you’ve greeted the table say something like “I really must say hello to grandpa B or uncle L” and move on.  Maybe have your husband keep time for you with his watch so that you only spend a max of 3 minutes at each table.  If they’re all still eating while you greet them, they will probably be pretty quiet.  Wink
