    We skipped the receiving line, but with nearly 200 guests, it would take HOURS to get through the line.  Instead, at our reception we asked the venue to serve us our meal first- we scarfed it down in a hurry and went table to table to greet and thank our guests while they were served and eating.  Sure, we missed a few people who were in the restroom or at the bar, but for the most part we were able to personally (but briefly) visit with each guest.

    My BFF did something similar at her wedding, after they walked down the aisle we immediately left for the reception because it was already a late wedding and they didn’t want there to be a further delay.  Just try to say hi to everyone at the reception.

    But I think with your idea it’s going to be really hard for you to get in and out of the picture with your guests without everyone wanted to talk to and hug you!  Could you possibly do the picture at the receoption?  Or have your photog get all the guests into position, you and Bridal Party line up front and then leave immediately after the picture is snapped?
