Are you getting married in the Berkshires? Wherever you spend your special day, you’ll need to think about ALL the details, including whether or not to do a receiving line. The receiving line: a wedding tradition that hasn’t changed much since your parents were married. Guests stand in a long line to greet the bridal party before the reception gets underway. It’s a tradition that can seem like an unnecessary throwback. And it takes time away from the “fun” part of the celebration.
Hold up! This tradition is important. The receiving line is still the best way to personally greet and speak with each of your guests and thank them for coming to your wedding. Especially when you have 100 guests or less. Plus it allows guests the opportunity to be introduced to a parent or spouse they haven’t had the opportunity to meet.
And one thing every guest will cherish is a little one-on-one love from you and your new spouse. Connecting, even briefly, with the joy of the occasion personally makes a lasting impact on the people who share your important day.
Here are a few ways to make the receiving line less of a chore and a more of a joy!
