@SparkleBee11:  Yes, I’d go with that recommendation.  We had a sign (on our version of our “program”, see below) and also had the officiant make an announcement.  I definitely wouldn’t trust people to read the program and/or small sign… I know a lot of people didn’t read our blurb!

Our officiant said before we begin, the bride and groom would like to respectfully request that you keep your cameras and phones off during the ceremony.  They have arranged some excellent photographers to capture this part of the day, and they’ll happily share all the pictures with anyone who is interested.  So for now, please just sit back and enjoy the next few minutes.

We set up a photo sharing site, uploaded many of our professional photos, and emailed the link to everyone so people really could have photos of the ceremony if they wanted.

We are doing the exact same thing. Our officiant will announce that at the beginning of the ceremony (before anyone walks in) and it’s also in the programs. I don’t want people to miss a clue somewhere so the more the better!!

We did this. We had info on our website and also had the first speaker announce it before the processional. We still had a few “rebels” but almost everyone complied.
