Wedding Receiving Line: Slimming Down The Receiving Line?

Q: I know a wedding receiving line is proper etiquette, but can we spare the wedding party and just include the bride, groom, and our immediate family (mothers, fathers, and grandparents)?

A: Sure! Including the wedding party in your receiving line is optional. Let your bridesmaids and groomsmen roam around and mingle while you, your parents, and grandparents greet the guests.
