Logistics would be tricky with that many people! We just did ours by passing it through the bridal party, right before the vow exchange. I think if your family blessing the rings is important, maybe sit them in the front row and just pass the rings along the front row (grandparents, immediate family) and back to the bridal party. BUT, if you want everyone to bless the rings, I think your idea of having someone in the bridal party do it when people are entering may work – but keep in mind you should probably have an usher do it (as you’ll want your bridal party around) and that some people might think it’s a bit braggy. Also, if a lot of people are coming in at once, it might cause a backup or delay while people wait outside to have their turn to bless the ring and enter the ceremony space. So I guess my take home message would be it’s better to keep it small and intimate – sit the important family members right up front and just pass it through the first row.
