1) Revise that must-take shots list. We've touched on this before, but really, your professional photographer should know how many people are in your bridal party. What you want to make sure they know are the details- the favors, escort cards, the brooch on your bouquet.
2) Have a great time line. A good rule of thumb is to aim for all of your pre-ceremony photos (and all the set up) to end one hour before the ceremony. This not only gives you time to freshen up, but gives your photographer time to snap all the details.
3) Bring an extra invitation suite. This is one that is left out too much, but when it's included is such a nice touch. The invitation is your guests' first preview to the wedding day to come, so it's nice to have a stylized photo of your invite included in your wedding album too.
