I’m not doing an unplugged ceremony, but I have to say, that’s the clearest sounding explanation (and most polite) that I’ve read so far. Maybe it’s just a generation-gap thing? Were the e-mails from middle-aged or elderly guests? Or maybe people are just generally curious about what it means to go unplugged, since it’s a foreign idea to them. Sometimes you just have to spell it out for people to make the connection: “An unplugged ceremony is one where guests are requested to refrain from taking personal photographs to preserve the solemnity of the occasion.” Or something like that.

@philodendron:  

To be very honest, my first thought was that “unplugged” meant you were going to have live acoustic music playing during the ceremony. I had to google the term. (Now I feel like a dinosaur lol!)

I think your explanation is very clear, but I think it’s the term “unplugged” that is foggy.  I agree with Summer_Rose, to me, “unplugged” means no microphones or projected sound.

Cameras are not usually plugged in while you’re using them. They’re unplugged.  I would either just have the explanation, or say “Camera-free” or “No photography, please”.
