Why You Should Have an Unplugged Wedding Ceremony

I wanted to start off by answering, What is an Unplugged Ceremony? It is when you ask all of your guests, family and friends to refrain from using their cell phones, cameras, and electronic devices during the ceremony of your wedding.  

Now you ask why is it important? Great question. I think it is important for two main reasons. First of all it is an important aspect for your vendors and second because it forces your guests to be in the moment and not worry about what pictures they should be capturing.

  1. It is very important for your wedding vendors.

    If you are having a vendor capture your wedding ceremony it is extremely important to not have arms sticking up and spoiling precious moments that are meant to be captured by a photographer and/or videographer.


    Trust me, you don’t want the perfect moments that your photographer captures to be spoiled by a guests phone sticking up in the middle of the shot.

  2. It is a way to keep your guests in the moment.

    With social media all around us, it can sometimes be hard to be in the moment of life at times. As a bride the last thing you want is to walk down the aisle to look at people and connect with their phones more than looking into their eyes and sharing those simple moments with them.

    You definitely don’t want a cell phone ringing during the intimate moments of your wedding ceremony. A cell phone ringer is the last thing you want so that is why I highly suggest to have an unplugged wedding ceremony sign at your wedding so you can set the stage for your guests and let them know that plenty of photos and videos will be taken by the professionals you have hired that all they need to do is sit back and enjoy the ceremony.


I hope this was helpful and gave you one more reason to consider having an Unplugged Wedding Ceremony on your wedding day.
