Being a wedding planner for so many years, we have witnessed an uprising in cell phone usage during the ceremony. So we are here to say, save the hashtags until after the #ceremony. Not only is using your phone disrespectful to the bride and groom and their wishes, but it is also an interruption to the photographers, videographers, and the wedding planners. We get a lot of guests sticking their arms right in the middle of the photographers shot, on their phones recording the ceremony, phones ringing, etc. Don't get us wrong, we love you, we just don't love your phones ;)
The attention should be on the bride and groom, directly, not through a screen, trust me, she will look more gorgeous in person! We can obtain this, by going to the ceremony unplugged, unattached to your phone for an hour or so, and refrain from unwarranted photo shoots in the middle of the aisles. While focusing all your energy on that exact, present, moment, one might come to find a sense of relief without their phone attached to their fingertips and appreciate the sacredness of a wedding ceremony. Everyone needs to be #unplugged sometimes, so leave the phone off and have an amazing time!
Refrain from things like; flash photography, being in the photographers / videographers shot, getting in their way, or being in the way of the bride and groom. These photos are expensive, timely, and most importantly, one of the biggest momentous that will come from the wedding. odds are they’re getting their photos taken all day and night long, so just look pretty, smile and wave! :)
Some couples request signs that state things like this; “Hold the Phone!” “Call it a day! NO PHONES” or simply, “No phone’s or picture taking during the ceremony.” This is an awesome and cute way to incorporate this rule, without being rude or bossy, because who wants any of that at a wedding?? Not us!
Thank you so much for understanding!!! We love you!!!
