Well, if you wanted everyone to exit the church immediately after the ceremony instead of having a recieving line, you could have your priest announce that at the end of your ceremony.  Also, your ushers could help get people into the right position waiting for you to come out.  If you do this, I would have you, your husband, and whoever is bustling your dress (mom, Maid/Matron of Honor, etc…) go into the bridal room right after you leave the ceremony, and wait there until everyone has left the building.  If you enlist your ushers, bridal party, etc… in getting everyone outside the church and lined up on the sidewalk, I think this would work.

There are other options for a grand entrance/exit as well.  You could have everyone line up for you to enter the reception or to exit the reception at the end of the night.  You could also use bubbles or ribbon wands inside or outside the church.

You can do whatever you want!  Some people have the receiving line as guests enter the reception instead.  You could also do table visits, if you prefer that.  If you want the traditional receiving line right after the ceremony, you could have your guests do the ribbon wands or bubbles or bells as you are leaving the sanctuary instead of outside, in front of the church.  🙂
