@navybride0428:  How long is the turnover?  Is there a patio or some other location your guests can wait?  I think if it’s only 10-15 mins, you could just have the photobooth and guestbook, any longer than that, and you’ll probably need to figure out drinks at least.

@oneofthesethings:  Agreed, I would see what the vendor has to say! Surely they have dealt with this in the past.

Wait to sign the marriage certificate.  Walk out down the aisle, and wait for your guests in the lobby, where you can greet them as they walk into the area — but on the opposite side, away from the doors.  That will take up the time necessary for the venue to switch over, hopefully, and then you can sign the certificate and go take pictures.

@navybride0428:  My venue doesn’t allow things to be thrown on the floor…or at least, if something is tossed, we have to pick it up.  So my flower girls are going to walk down the aisle holding little bouquets.  I don’t think that’s such a big deal.

Is the idea I mentioned doable?

Let’s see…are you allowed to put pictures on the walls or anything?  You could put together some framed photographs of the two of you, or of places you’ve been, and sort of make a gallery for your guests to peruse while you’re busy.
