* Especially now, many photographers, videographers, and even DJs are offering live-stream packages! Trust the experts to take care of having the right equipment, set-up, and software!

* Facebook Live, Instagram, or YouTube? Think about who the majority of people will be watching your stream and what platform will be the most easily accessible.

* If you opt to live-stream on your own, it is still important to put someone in charge of the process. Messing with microphones and camera angles is the last thing you want to deal with on your big day! So find your most tech savvy friend or family member and kindly ask them to help.
