Hiring a professional can give you more than peace of mind

Specialties: Destination weddings.

Favorite Extra Touch: I love when a bride and groom cater to their guests, when they put themselves in their guests' shoes. There are many ways to be considerate: It can be with transportation—some people have picked out-of-town guests up at the airport—or even just thoughtful gift bags.

One Planning Tip: Keeping your guest list small will make it more memorable and intimate.
