After the ceremony, getting the family photos done efficiently is very important so that there is still ample time to photograph couple or make it to cocktail hour! There are a few things that can be done to make this process go smoothly. The first is to make sure all involved in the family photos know where to meet for portraits. You can send them an email, or have the officiant make an announcement for all family members to stick around after the ceremony for family photos. The second is to designate a bridesmaid, groomsmen, or family member to locate all the people that need to be in the family photos in case some family members go missing (this happens a lot). The sooner it is done, the sooner your family members (and you) can get back to the cocktail party.
