@RaysBride89:  Not really sure there’s a socially acceptable way of doing this. Seems little over controlling I think.

It almost reminds me of the recent Beyonce issue where she wanted a picture removed from the internet. There are some things about your wedding you won’t have control over.

I don’t think you can.  But I would hope that people wouldn’t post a bad picture of you.  People usually post pictures of themselves all dressed up.

Our officiant made an announcement before the ceremony processional started to not take pictures – that we wanted our guests to be there, in the moment with us, not worried about getting the perfect picture – that we had hired professionals to take care of that. I liked that people were in the moment with us rather than taking pictures, and it did prevent ceremony pictures from going on social media, though that wasn’t the goal. All the reception pictures people posted were beautiful, and I hate pictures of myself.

Actually a bride from here just did that… I need to find the post, it was super tasteful.  It was on a chalkboard and said something like “Please respect this intimate moment by not posting to social media sites.”

I don’t think there is anyway to do it without being a bridezilla…

I have seen signs on Pinterest about having an ‘Unplugged Wedding’ asking guests to please not use cell phones and cameras during the ceremony, which I think is a more than reasonable request…but I wouldn’t extend it to the reception. I think people may want to take pictures of themself with friends or whatnot… I know I would never post a bunch of pictures from someone else’s wedding…maybe just of friends or one thing I found especially pretty or fun looking.

Nothing Bridezilla about it … ive seen pics end up on Facebook before the groom even had time to see his bride. 

I like the chalkboard idea and its easy enough to remind your bridal party

@RaysBride89:  probably because you are telling adults what to do.

HEre you go, found it on Pinterest.  You 100% percent have every right to ask.  It’s not fair that we’re expected to be exposed all over the Internet just because its available to us 24/7.  I personally find it super rude and could see why you would want to do this!
