I’m ashamed to admit it but I’m a dual blackberry carrier – I have one for work and one for personal (which also doubles as my cell). I wasn’t planning on carrying either of them around with me on my wedding day (well, maybe not after I leave, fully dressed, for pre-ceremony photos).
I’ve got a friend who’s going to check in on set-up, which will occur while we are getting our photos taken. we also have lots of out-of-town guests. what if anyone needs to reach me during that time? or if we get separated on the way to the post party?
Am i the only one who’s worried about something like that? the groom will definitely be toting his bberry / cell. he leaves it at home whenever he can!
ladies, what are you doing about staying "in touch" / accessible on your wedding day? what else are you thinking of toting around with you?

You know, I actually wanted to be "out of touch" on the day of the wedding! I had my phone with me, but I wanted to be able to relax without having to talk to too many people and do too many things.
I brought my phone with me, but I only used it once the whole day. My husband texted me to say that he was ready for our First Look!

i don’t think you need to worry that anyone will be trying to contact YOU for info on your wedding day! have your mom and/or dad and BMs and GMs available (except during pictures) and don’t worry about a thing. let other people worry about the details and enjoy yourself. put down your blackberries for one day – you can do it!

I gave everyone my parents, his parents, our Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man and my personal attendants cell phone numbers. My personal attendant carried my cell phone in her bag and I never even thought about it. You will be too busy thinking about your husband! Plus, no one will be trying to get ahold of you anyways! I didn’t get mine back till late the next day and it was so nice being "free"!

I had a dream last night that my fiance texted me from the altar. I added to my checklist "confiscate fiance’s cell phone before ceremony" this morning 😉
In all honestly, though, this is a concern of mine because we have so many moving parts coordinating buses, childcare, caterers, etc. at my parents’ house where the reception will be held. I printed my mom’s mobile number on the directions & maps and hired a friend’s sister to act as our DOC. I’m hoping to give her my mom’s phone so she can field any calls for us.

I had my iphone on me. I got lots of texts saying "congrats! can’t wait to see you" that kept me uplifted throughout the day. I dropped it once we got to the location though.

lots of great ideas. we don’t have BMs and GMs. our parents are both from other countries (international cellphone calling on that day will be limited, esp given the cost!) but i can definitely drop off my cell w/ a designated person once we get to the location and provide alternate contacts as well.

I have a "runner". She’ll have a phone on her until I walk out of the getting ready room. Once that happens, she’s on my time and if someone needs for some weird reason to get info they can ask another guest.
As for my Fiance, he hates his phone and forgets it at home whenever he can. Plus all of his besties are his groomsmen 🙂

I can’t WAIT to NOT have my phone on or with me. If someone has any questions that only I can answer… well, they should have asked me the day before. 😉

I don’t think that you should be the primary contact for anything, unless you want to. You should not be the one stressing if someone can’t find the favors, or doesn’t know where to set up the escort cards.

I have two phones, my personal and cell phone. I did have my phones in a bag in the room before the ceremony but after we packed up the bags in the car so I really didnt have my phone on me. But I think everyone understands that too. If I needed to get ahold of someone or make sure Darling Husband didnt see me before the ceremony, my mom or a friend had their phone on them.

Oh gosh, I can’t imagine being without my iPhone on W-day. Just in case I need to escape to the bathroom and check Facebook or something. Lol…I like my bathroom alone time. TMI?

I plan to have my phone with me but I will most likely give it to my Maid/Matron of Honor or mother to hold in their purse. I want to be out of touch and focus on our day and our guests 🙂

I already have my wedding day clutch picked out and it fits my blackberry perfectly! I cannot be without it. What if there’s a disaster and I need to know. I would just be so nervous without it.

Logically, I’m not concerned, because I know my Maid/Matron of Honor (my sister) will handle everything smoothly. But as a force of habit, my blackberry is *always* with me, so it will be a little weird!
