We did a receiving line so that we wouldn’t have to go to every table during the dinner.  We didn’t get to eat any of the appetizers and I only got one serving of the dinner and barely any cake during the reception.

For my first wedding 10 years ago I ate and drank quite a bit. But I always eat a lot so I wasn’t going to sacrifice that day 🙂 We’ll see how it goes this time around.

I’m curious about this too.  We’re not doing a receiving line.  We do have a plated dinner, so I hope that I’ll be able to at least eat dinner.

The caterer made sure we had our food right away and advised that we eat before getting up, so yes we did.

No receiving line here, and we ate our dinner and cake!!  Our DJ sent our table through the food buffet first, we ate, got our sunset photos taken (part way through dinner, so I had Maid/Matron of Honor guard my plate of food until we got back!!), and made it through as many tables as possible before dancing started.  We didn’t hit them all, but the people that we missed caught up with us before they left.  It helped that we stayed for the entire reception and for about half of the cocktail hour.

we ate… everything! we got to the cocktail hour with about 5 minutes to spare after pictures and had someone bring us two of everything, so we snuck into a corner and ate by ourselves. we were the first to get our dinner (buffet) so we were able to eat it while everyone else was waiting in line or waiting to go up to the line, and by the time we were finished we had plenty of time to go around to different tables. the dessert was a little more tricky, people kept coming up to me when i was eating it, but i literally didn’t leave my table until i was finished with it. it was sooo yummy and i wanted to enjoy my wedding croquembouche!

we invited everyone to the Rehearsal Dinner as almost a pizza and meetn greet, so that we hadf already said “hi” to everyone. Heck yes we ate! And the food was amazing!

I’m DETERMINED to eat at my reception, lol! I’m so excited about all the food we’re serving, so I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure I get to eat!

Luckily, we’re doing a plated dinner and my Fiance and I both eat pretty fast. So even if we skip the receiving line, we’ll probably have time to hit all the tables during dinner.
