    We have hired a professional photographer (actually a husband & wife team, so we are getting 2 photographers). Not sure on livestreaming or video graphics yet, we are debating placing my DSLR camera on a tripod, setting it up beforehand, and then having a family member turn it on manually.

    D!
    We also thought about doing disposable cameras but I’ve heard none of the photos turn out so for the cost it isn’t worth it for us!
    Instead we will have 4 poloroid cameras that people can use throughout the night and for our guest sign in!

    I'd say probably max about a dozen? Maybe? Some will be too small to be left with anyone but most will be between one and five. I have 2 potential sitters hopefully... and then we'll go from there!

    Amazing! Can't wait to see them Ami! Smiley love Btw, if there's anything you need help with you can create a discussion and we'll be there for you. There are also other brides in the community who had great ideas to include their children in their wedding:

    Cocktail hour... entertainment

    Mother/ son dance

    Children ..... or..."my vip"

    It's a good idea to hire someone to babysit! Smiley laugh How many kids will be there?

    Hi Jennifer, I'm so glad you started taking the test! Smiley heart Did you see other questions? Smiley smile Here's they are, I hope it helps!

    1. How many guests will you have?

    2. What type of reception do you want?

    3. What day of the week are you getting married?

    4. What type of dress or suit do you want?

    6. How many days left until you get married?

    7. How will you decorate for your big day?

    8. Limited bar or open bar?

    9. Will you get married at night or during the day?

    I can't wait to hear more about your wedding! You could even ask you guests to help take pictures during the ceremony Smiley smile Will you have a hashtag and use social media at your wedding?

    I do like that idea! I'm going to get some "wedding" ones made off etsy for the tables (one per table) and then might grab a few for kids. Most of the kids are going to be too little. But I sell toys with a direct sales company and have a massive stash of stuff that I figure we'll set up a play area in the basement and hire a couple teenagers to babysit. That way parents can go enjoy and visit and if they miss their kids or their kids miss them, we have options :-) our 2 girls will be there so...

    Hi Tina Smiley heart If you have a friend whose a professional photographer I think that would be your best option to go for!

    It's so useful and it can make the event even more loving if everyone contributes in their own way Smiley smile

    Would you have a picture like this taken with your bridesmaids? Smiley laugh

    Hi Christina Smiley heart

    A photographer is great to be able to enjoy your wedding stress-free and keep amazing memories! Smiley catface

    The video makes the images more alive and can make you relive that special moment again. It's for sure a good option to consider. Sometimes photographers will have a package for both videos and photos. You could definitely look that up! Smiley smile

    What would be the essential pictures to take on your wedding day?
