Your wedding day is one of the (if not THE) most important occasions of your life. So, it’s not too much to ask that your guests pay attention as you make your way down the aisle and exchange your vows. Not to mention the fact that a no phone rule at your wedding would prevent any buzzes, beeps or rings that might interrupt your nuptials.
Plus, who wants candid shots or video footage showing tons of people with their faces glued to their cell screens? Additionally, if your guests decide that they want to take photos or video of your wedding ceremony and they hold their phones in the air, your own photographer may not have a clear shot…and if they do, those shots may be peppered with a bunch of people holding up phones in the background. Ugh!
Besides all that, the unhealthy attachment to our electronics that we have developed inhibits us, robbing us of the ability to just cut loose and have some fun – which is exactly what wedding receptions are for. That no phone rule may even allow you to have more fun at your reception, as you won’t be interrupted umpteen times for selfies.
Whatever you decide, just remember that your wedding day is your day. So, no one can blame you for wanting to do it your way…and if that happens to be with or without cellphones, live streams and/or aerial drones, so be it!
