the way i’ve seen it at church weddings is that the ceremony is complete and the Wedding Party walks the recessional and kind of hugs and lines up with their families to shake hands (or if they don’t do this, they take pictures, etc) and the guests go outside and wait for the grand exit. I’ve been asked to be the bubble organizer before b/c i wasn’t in the wedding party, and i don’t mind talking to people I don’t know. When i did this, i just explained that the bride wanted everybody to blow the bubbles when they exited the church, and to line up on both sides. People are just milling around looking for direction after the ceremony anyway. Get someone social or a youngster that would like to help to pass out bubbles and it’ll work out 🙂

A receiving line is a great idea.  The bride and groom and their immediate family line up at the back of the church to say hi to everyone and having someone who will let everyone know that you want them to wait on the steps for you to come out and blow bubbles on you!

Have you asked the church if they allow it? Many churches do not because if spilled its pretty slippery. They usually will give you a list of what you can use and what you can’t.

Ditto @smyley: I know my parish doesn’t allow the bubbles event outside the church since we have beautiful tile mosaics coming up to the entrance, & steps up to the church…and even the residue of falling bubbles makes it slippery.

Double check with your church’s wedding coordinator (the parishioner in charge of scheduling the rehearsal & giving you info about requirements & expectations of weddings in the church)…he/she will probably tell you what other couples (with bubbles, if they allow it) have done/asked the church to do.

If I COULD do it, I’d probably pass out the bubble containers along with the worship guides/programs for your ceremony & add a little blurb at the bottom instructing your guests to do what you want…and I like @Melissabegins’ suggestion of putting a non-wedding party member in charge of corraling the guests to blow bubbles as you folks come out after the recessional or pictures.

Good Luck!  And please share your picture from your wedding…*gasp* THIS Saturday!
