THE IMPORTANCE OF A RECEIVING LINE
A crucial part of seating arrangements that is sometimes overlooked is the receiving line. Every guest wants to personally give the bride and groom best wishes and you may not encounter each and every one throughout the course of the reception. Find a place and time where you can allow whoever so wishes to line up for hugs and handshakes. You may want to include the whole wedding party in the receiving line, or just your families or parents or simply you and your spouse. The room may be cramped with tables and chairs, so find a place where the traffic will flow. The beginning of the reception is a good time for the receiving line or maybe in between dinner and cake. The whole day can seem a blur and remembering that you took the time to speak to your friends and family will leave happy memories for you and them.
