I've seen a lot of posts about receiving lines vs. table visits, and I'm wondering if anyone has any alternate advice. My mother controlled the guest list since she's paying for the wedding and our guest list is likely going to consist of 350 guests, many of whom I've never met.
Our wedding & reception will be at the same venue (one inside, one outside) and we will not be having a cocktail hour. I've seen family and friends spend all of their time doing table visits and were not able to enjoy the wedding they've worked so hard to plan. While I'd like to say hello to everyone, I'm doubtful that this is possible. I'd also like to have time to enjoy our reception and spend time with friends and family on the dance floor.
Does anyone have any advice on how to find a compromise that won't upset those who get upset if the bride & groom aren't able to talk to them? Thanks!!
