Q: We are getting married in July and we are planning the reception to last into the morning. We want to do a ‘fake leave’ for pictures. What time should this be done. We are having the ceremony at our church at 6:00 pm and then of course there are all of the pictures we have to take at the church prior to going to the reception hall. I would assume the bridal party and members of the family will start arriving to the reception asap. This hall is across town.
A: Today, it is not uncommon for the guests wait outside the church until pictures at the church are taken. As the couple exits the church to get into the limousine to the reception, guests throw rose petals or birdseed then instead of when the couple leaves the reception for their honeymoon. This is the only way we can suggest to have pictures of you leaving.
