Wedding day timelines are extremely helpful to all of the parties involved in your wedding day. Everyone from the photographer, to the bridesmaids, to the parents all benefit from having a detailed day-of timeline!I can really attest to the importance of a good wedding day timeline. It really makes a big difference when the day's schedule has been thought out and everyone is on the same page. Of course, things will happen that can make the schedule slip, so it's also important to be flexible and not get stressed if/when something goes awry .
To help make sure your photographer captures everyone you want, write out the names of key people to be pictured and delegate a friend or relative to point them out to the photographer.This is something that I always discuss with my brides. This is especially helpful while shooting the group shots. It allows me to focus on shooting while the friend or relative gathers the various groups to be shot.
