You're going to want some professional photos of you and the bridal party, but try to keep your candids natural and not forced.

2. Put disposable cameras on every reception table and match them to your color theme.

This way, you can save money on a photographer, and you'll be sure to get a photo of everybody.

5. Encourage guests to B.Y.O.C.

Bring Your Own Camera! This isn't a museum, it's a party! Encourage your guests to take lots of pictures and tag them on Facebook later.

8. Let the kids get in on the action, too.

You might get some weird photos of bugs and feet, but kids have the kind of imagination we adults don't. You'll get some really neat pics, we promise.

9. Pass a Polaroid camera around the reception floor and get your photos back at the end of the night.
