My husband and I went to a wedding when we were dating where the bride and groom dismissed each row.  It was nice, but even for a wedding with less than 150 people, it took a LONG time.  We decided not to do a receiving line, and just went table to table at the reception and talked to everyone (and had our photographers take a picture of us with the guests from each table).

Hmm it seems sort of confusing that you would leave the church and then come back in to say goodbye to everyone.  I’m not sure that everyone would understand that’s what you are doing and might get up and start to leave before you come back.  Maybe the officiant could make an announcement that you will be going row to row to greet everyone?

This is nice, but it does take awhile and people are waiting in their ceremony seats. I have been to several weddings where they do this and I would suggest you put something in the programs or make an announcement because it is awkward when people start leaving.
