We are having a Destination Wedding followed by a Welcome Home Brunch a few weeks later.
I’m trying to work out logistics for the day, especially as it pertains to greeting our guests. I had the thought to actually stand at the door on the way into the hall and say hello to everyone there, but that just seems it would slow down the arrival of guests considerably (we’re expecting about 125 people).
If we don’t actually greet everyone at the door, we will just go around to tables afterwards and see everyone then. That’s not the issue…
The question is if we don’t greet everyone immediately at the door, should we stay ‘hidden’ until everyone has arrived and make some kind of entrance? I’m afraid if we are just mingling with everyone else as guests arrive, we will end up with an impromptu receiving line anyway.

I vote for some sort of entrance, doesn’t have to big or over the top. I don’t think a receiving line would be the best option. Maybe someone has something more creative than me to offer.

I agree that greeting at the door will create a line so I would just mingle with your guests. While there will probably be a bit of a line to talk to you, at least people are being forced to wait outside, they can come in and choose to talk to you immediately or to wander for a bit and get to you later. This way you get more time with your guests without making them wait outside.

Thanks ladies! No greeting at the door it is…
It will be December in Canada, so having our guests wait outside probably wouldn’t be very hospitable. Dont know why I hadn’t realized they would be standing outside!
