03.04.10 Our Day by Design: Receiving Line

To make sure we at least spoke to all of our guests we decided to have a receiving line as the guests were making their way into the ballroom for dinner. Although my sister, the best man and our flowergirl were also sitting at the top table, we just did the receiving line with our parents. There seemed to be quite a lot of hilarity!

After they had spoken to each of us, the guests were able to look at the table plan then make their way into the ballroom to find their table. I'm really glad we did the receiving line as although it took a while, I loved being able to speak to everyone, especially the guests I didn't know as well, who I may not have spoken to later on.

Then it was time for the piper to pipe in the top table...

  1. It looks like you had fun! We didn't do a formal receiving line, but I agree that it's a great way to greet your guests. We did make it around to each table during dnner, though.

  2. Haha, lovely photos! We didn't do a formal receiving line but we had such a small number of guests we managed to chat to everyone.

  3. What a good way to get to talk to everyone! We won't be having a formal receiving line but we'll make damn sure we get to talk to everyone given we are only have 50 or so guests.
    Love the photos (as I love all of your photos!). Nice and candid!

  4. That is so nice that you got to speak to every single guest.
