I was perusing online when I found this article about the benefits of having an “unplugged” wedding. I don’t know about any other Bees but if I got my wedding photographs back from our photographer like the ones posted in this article, I would be seriously pissed. Anyway…that being said I am strongly considering having our guests not use photography with their cameras and cell phones during our ceremony. I don’t care so much at the reception as long as our photographer is able to get the key pictures like the first dance, cake cutting, etc. In fact after reading this article, I am even more convinced having an “unplugged” wedding is a great idea! 🙂 What are your opinions Bees? BTW here is the link to the article. It was posted on Huffington Post.

This has been discussed a fair bit on here, if you do a search for unplugged weddings you’ll be able to see what people thought about the article and their experiences etc 🙂

We’ll be having an unplugged wedding Ceremony. Besides seeing the photos of all the guests looking through their phones and cameras, I also want everyone to be present and be there with us. Our photographer said she would have a couple of ceremony pics ready for friends and fam within a day or two so they can have those instead of insisting on taking thier own photos.

I will probably have no flash photography. I don’t mind guests taking pictures but I do not want them to use flash and risk messing up the professional photographers pictures. And I will have the aisle blocked on both sides so that no one but the professional photographer can get up and down the aisle.

Thanks for posting this article! Definitely a must-read for all Bees!

@anonymous2121: We didn’t do this, and everything worked out great in the end. Plus, I have to say, I really enjoyed seeing other people’s photos, and to be honest, there were a few shots that our photographer didn’t even capture (to no fault of hers, just time and place) that I love. IMO, it’s nice to have more people taking photos – more chance of getting shots that you will love for a lifetime! That being said, I totally understand the need to go unplugged – go with your gut, it’s telling you what you’d prefer! 🙂

I definitely plan to “risk it” with a professional photographer/videographer.

I’m not having this and I dont understand why adults need to be told what to do. I would respect someone’s wishes if they had an “unplugged” ceremony. During the reception I would want to take my own pictures.

We’re having an “unplugged” ceremony. We have WAY too many hobby photographers in our family/friends to do it any other way. Otherwise all of our loved ones will be too concerned about getting the perfect shot to pay any attention.
I don’t want to get back all of my professional pictures and all I see is a sea of camera lenses instead of faces. 🙁

We had an unplugged ceremony. Almost everyone respected it. Once I got our photos back I was really happy with the results.
