Unplugged Wedding - The couple respectfully requests that all guests honor the sanctity of this moment by turning off cell phones and cameras. The photographer will capture how this moment looks — We encourage you all to capture how it feels with your hearts, without the distraction of technology
I cringe when I hear phones go off during a ceremony!!! Don't want that happening during mine. AND I don't want people taking pics with their cell phones to interfere with my professional pics...standing in the aisle, flash, etc.
Wedding program -There's nothing like a beautiful image of a bride and groom during their first dance that has a wedding guest in the background with an ipad up to their face taking a picture. https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/s720x720/575336_10150976557558522_489980719_n.jpg
Such a nice way to remind guests to be present during the ceremony. We have been seeing more and more guests up and wandering around taking photos during ceremonies never mind stepping in to isles at key moments...such a bummer!
Ask in a nice way that your guests pay attention during your vows and not occupy themselves with tech. Place this in your program or post a large sign at the door. Use this copy 'n' paste wording and templates from Offbeat Bride for your wedding. You may also want to ask your officiant to say a few words about turning off cell phones and putting down cameras as well just to drive the point home.
