better to give than to receive

You may want to personally thank your wedding ceremony guests with a receiving line. You may not realize that if there are 100 of your nearest and dearest, it will probably take about 20 minutes. Why not start the celebration right after your “I do”s! Have your waitering staff pass trays with champagne, sparkling water or your signature drink as people are waiting to say hello to you; they’ll be at the party instantly! If you are outside on a hot day, this will be a welcome and delightful surprise, and no one will notice the minutes slipping by.
