    We are thinking of doing a privacy sign for our beach ceremony. Something along the lines of, "please respect our privacy for our wedding". Anyone done this or thinking of doing this?

      That sounds like it might be a good idea. I'm worried about a million people being in the background of my pics because we can't afford to do a completely private ceremony. I'm interested to see if anyone else has done this.

      We could always use the free signs on VistaPrint for this DIY!!

        From the weddings that I've seen, the hotel does a good job of clearing a section off for the wedding. Either way, you're still going to have people hanging around. Something about weddings that people can't keep away. From the ones that I've seen, people are always respectful and just happy to be around it.

        It would be good to hear what others have done.

          I'm not. I think people may take offense and disobey. I think it is inferred and people just understand that they were not invited. I haven't heard of anyone having probs at our resort from past brides, but if you are worried it might not be a bad idea. I would talk to the wedding coordinator and see what policies they have inplace to keep people out of wedding territory during ceremony.

            I think it could be a cute idea and definitely wouldn't hurt. I also would hope that the WC's will keep spectators in check, but assume there will always be a few.

            Good Luck!

              I think it would depend on the layout of where you are getting married.

              My brother just got married at the Mona Surfrider in Honolulu and had a big problem with people standing there and watching (but they knew in advance that this would happen).

              They got married on a lawn looking onto the beach. There was a fence that separated the lawn from the beach but once beach-goers saw a wedding was going on they all lined up along the fence and were literally an arm's length away from where the bridal party was standing. I don't think there would've been anything they could've done to prevent what happened but the photographer said he could photoshop all the people out.

              It was actually kind-of funny to see all the people standing there and I guess that is what you are to expect at the location they choose. One bright spot was that one of the people watching was a semi-pro photographer who ended up taking pictures of the wedding. He found one of the groomsmen and swapped email addresses and then burned a whole disc of great photos for my brother and his wife. The photos were fantastic!

              Good luck and post pictures if you come up with a sign!
