My fiance and I do not want a receiving line, instead we plan on meeting all the guests at the reception. How are you other Brides getting “out” of doing a receiving line at the church? Most weddings I go to have a receiving line and then everyone leaves. Do my FH and I just disappear or what?? I dont know what we’re supposed to do while we wait for people to leave so we can get pictures done.

we arent doing it. once the pastor announces us and we “take off we will go hide in another part of ceremony location to get photos done while guests exit and make their way to the reception site/

We didn’t do it. Instead, we did all our pics before the ceremony and made sure to spend the cocktail hour chatting with all the guests (we had 66 people). Then, we felt free of obligation during the reception and just danced and had a great time!
