I dont think it would be weird. I know people dont love recieving lines, but they are the most effective way to greet everyone and still have time to enjoy the reception.

Hmmm interesting. I suppose it could work, but won’t people be coming in at different times?

Usually the receiving line is after the ceremony because everyone is getting up and leaving at the same time.

People won’t be lining up to come in to your reception, they will just show up when they show up. I feel like this could end up being very time consuming with you potentially waiting around for guests to show up.

Here’s my suggestion for a receiving line-

Since most people will want to talk to YOU longer than your parents, make it so that your guests greet YOU before greeting your parents. Then, they can just say a quick hello to you parents and not have to awkwardly stand in front of them, while they wait for whoever is in front of them in line to be finished having a 5-minute chat with you!
