CONSIDERING AN UNPLUGGED CEREMONY?
Have you ever seen a First Kiss photo and there are a bunch of cell phones sticking up in the photo?
This is what you want to prevent. During the ceremony, it is a common to have a cell-phone free wedding ceremony. This is also referred to as an "Unplugged Ceremony", or "Unplugged Wedding". Typically the officient is the one who makes the announcement before the ceremony starts.
There are a few things to think about regarding Bridal Party and Guests using their cell phones. During the getting ready moments, it's important that the attention be on the bride and enjoying the wedding day, not playing on the phones. In addition, you don't want photos from these moments and have people looking at their phones in the background.
