What is an unplugged wedding?

In an unplugged wedding, you are asking your wedding guests not to take photos during the wedding ceremony. Why would you do that? Well, this gives them the opportunity to be present at your wedding, to really hear and see you share your wedding vows without fiddling with their phones or cameras.

This also gives your wedding photographer the opportunity to capture all those special moments that you hired them to do without the phone photobombs.

How do I tell my guests?

Many couples opt to have a simple sign at the entrance of their wedding ceremony letting them know that they will be having an unplugged wedding. You can even mention this on your wedding website.
