My FI also wants an unplugged ceremony (he’d prefer people leave the cell phones at home but understands that’s overboard).  I’m interested to see what people recommend

that sounds good. im doing somewhat of the same thing, we were going to ask that they get a chance to take one photo once i get to the alter and then put them away until after the ceremony. still havent come up with wording but i think i will have the officiant announce that in the beginning once everyone is seated.

I think that sounds fine and very polite.  You should also have your officiant make an announcement at the beginning of the ceremony!!  Have him just say something very similar to your note.  People ignore or don’t notice program notes sometimes….

i honestly dont think people would read it and do it…i would be a nice if they didnt, but you know that people want a good shot, they dont want to wait for the pro photos to develope…good luck on that one….i was in my friends wedding and the gooms mens wife kept butting infront of the photographer i had to yell at her in front of a few people to get her to stop…not to mention she showed up to a formal wedding in a tank top and shorts…she looked like she was going to the beach…OMG i could have killed that girl… anyway… it would be nice if it worked but i dont think people would do it…

@thisisbrucebanner:  The note is very nice, but people probably won’t read it. I would have your officiant announce it BEFORE anyone WALKS down the aisle. That’s when I’ve noticed guest photographers getting very aggressive.
