Hire a planner, hire a planner, hire a planner! Choosing a planner that you trust and vibe with will make everything so much easier—they’ll know the area and best vendors to work with. Save yourself the headache (and possibly money, since a good planner will help you stay on budget, too). I’m a sucker for a good photobooth moment, and I’m so glad we decided to add one at the last minute; our guests loved it. Follow your heart on certain design or day elements that you really, really want. One of our favorite post-wedding purchases was an electronic picture frame that cycles through all of our favorite wedding photos. I highly recommend it!
