I would not put that in the invitation. Do you have a wedding website? Or I would just go with word of mouth. Maybe you can have your MC/DJ make an annoucement at the end of the night if it truly seems like people haven’t gotten the message.

I wouldn’t put it in the invitation.  Maybe a framed note on the guestbook table? Are you having programs? A small note at the end of the program may work. If none of those, then I think an announcement from the DJ will do.

How about little signs scattered about?

I had a similar issue with a relative who I don’t like (there’s another post I wrote about him vandalizing my decorations) who insisted on putting up pictures on his website of EVERYTHING.  Even when he has been told not to, he still does. I told my parents that they needed to talk to him and he agree not to bring his camera or he would not be invited.  I think a DJ announcement is a good way to go, and if there are people you are particularly concerned about, I would have this conversation prior to the wedding.  Is there any security concern you can blame it on?

Are you okay with your guests posting pictures on a site like snapfish? Guests may want to share photos and then get impatient, since they aren’t going to spend weeks editing the pictures like your photographer will be.

@stefanieastronaut: Thanks.  I am already married so won’t be needing it for myself, but I think it’s a great idea.

I think you can request it, but don’t be surprised if pictures end up on FB anyway.Your guests will be excited and want to share…and one up each other Laughing

I think the DJ suggestion is a good one, and also maybe having a card placed on the tables that say the same thing.

We put it in our programs and had our officiant and MC announce it, and gave our very specific reason why we had safety concerns about our photos being posted.  It didn’t stop a few people.

People’s rudeness never ceases to amaze me.

We had pictures of the ceremony on facebook before our reception even started. But he didn’t tag us until after we got ours up so atleast they didn’t show up on our pages…
