If you are attending a wedding you are expected to go through the receiving line. This is a wonderful opportunity to wish the newlyweds well and share in their joyous celebration.
I frequently hear excuses such as, “I don’t want to wait in that long line” or “I’ve been invited by my date and don’t know anyone”.
You accepted the invitation to attend the wedding. Please accept the responsibility of helping the wedding couple, their families, and attendants share their joy with you. If you don’t know everyone in the line, take this opportunity to introduce yourself.
