My photographer suggested that I buy them. She made more money, and my guests simply enjoyed the event.

I’m saving the picture to use for my inspiration board (I won’t put it on pinterest as it doesn’t have your info on it), hope that’s OK. I wanted to let you know though that there’s a geotag on the pic of the sign. You might want to remove it. And, you can delete this comment.

Thanks!

I can’t imagine seeing the kind of scenario in that second photo – just terrible. But I wouldn’t want to come off too strong in enforcing this type of policy. I think we’ll go with one of the suggestions in the link you posted:

At my best friend’s wedding, the rabbi asked the bride to turn around and face the audience after her parents walked her to the alter. At this time he said, “Everyone, get the photo you really want now, because we ask that your cameras remain off for the remainder of the ceremony.”

To me this sounds like a great compromise and allows everyone to get that shot they would like!

In fact, I loved it so much, I had to feature it in my weekly Friday Five post today. The theme of course was on “unplugging,” and I thought a post on an unplugged wedding day was super fitting considering I’m also doing a retroactive series right now on Our DIY Wedding. Worlds majorly colliding, too, because one of the few blogs I followed 4 years ago when planning my wedding was this one! The Budget Savvy Bride! The blog world just gets smaller and smaller every day, doesn’t it?

Here’s a link to the post if you want to check it out: http://www.thinkingcloset.com/2013/08/30/the-friday-five-made-for-more-than-screens/

Cheers!

They are a really clever and nice way to get the point across. I think the website is http://www.photoetiquette.com

I’ve see much more kind ways of wording the unplugged reception. Also, if you’re going to put a whole paragraph on that sign (that most people won’t read all of), why not print it on the programs and have those on guests’ seats? This site has some eloquent ideas: http://offbeatbride.com/2011/06/unplugged-wedding-templates

I’m paying good money for a photographer and I won’t have her photos ruined by guests getting in the way.
