Instead of a receiving line, we just went back into the church and then dismissed each row that way we got to see everyone for a bit, but people didn’t dilly dally around!  But we also went outside so that guests could blow the bubbles and then we went back in and did our pictures!!

We didnt do one, but we had the ceremony at the same place as the reception. The reception started right after.

I dont think you have to have anything special if you dont want. It wont be missed. It does make for nice shots, but I wouldnt stress about it.

We didn’t want a receiving line because we only had one hour to get all the pictures done, plus do my bustle, hit the restrooms, touch up make-up, etc. so after we all walked down the aisle, we “hid” in a room down the hall from the ceremony and our officiant made the announcement for the guests to head towards the reception for cocktail hour. So while we didn’t get a grand exit (I didn’t really care about that anyway), we were able to get right to the pictures. Our officiant told us if we didn’t “hide” after the ceremony, people would find us and we’d never have enough time for our pictures because everybody would want to come see us.
