Tips for managing technology use on your big day.
More and more couples are asking us about to have an unplugged wedding. For some couples this means a photo-free ceremony, and for others it’s more about the use of social media, but either way, the ethos behind this wedding trend is to encourage your guests to put down their phones, and be more engaged in your day.
1. Unplugged Wedding Invites
Give your guests advance warning and politely point out that you’d love if all guests could go phone, camera and iPad free for the ceremony or the reception.
2. Ask your Officiant to Make an Announcement
Your guests are more likely to listen to an authority figure like your celebrate than to your subtle requests!
3. Put it in the Program
A line explaining that you want your guests to relax and enjoy the ceremony phone-free will work perfectly.
4. Put it on Your Wedding Website
Announcing it on your wedding website is another great way to inform all of your guests of your intention to have a tech-free wedding.
