With the advent of so much personal gadgetry, it’s no surprise that weddings and other big events have been inundated with amateur photographers using everything from an iPad to a smartphone to take pictures of important happenings. However, this poses a big problem at weddings because guests often cause the professional photographer that you’ve hired to miss important shots. Because of this, many couples have decided to go with an unplugged wedding. Here are some great reasons you should unplug your wedding, too.
What It Means To Unplug Your Wedding
An unplugged wedding is one where personal communication devices are not allowed. Typically, couples who have chosen an unplugged wedding make an announcement on their wedding website, but it is becoming increasingly popular to have the officiant or another individual read an “unplugged statement” before everything gets started. These statements usually have verbiage urging the guests to turn off their electrical devices and asking that guests please refrain from taking pictures or using any personal electronics during the ceremony.
