I also agree with someones comment above...about if ppl want to share the day with us they should be there.  My bridesmaid and friend of 15 years recently backed out of going to Mexico.  I can't help but be a little bitter bc we gave plenty of notice.  I don't want her to see pics. 


also, we intend to do a small at home ceremony so family who has legit reasons to not be there can witness us marrying and the overall look will still be a surprise the day of.

    I don't mind at all.... Plan on giving little cards to guest with directions as to how they can share their photos with us.  The photographer can take photos of everything and we'll be super busy so I really don't want to miss out on the candid photos guest take.

    It doesn't bother me at all if our friends and family take pictures. I agree with @kdnolan I want those candid shots! Snap away!

    @talicea7812 I'm sorry your friend backed out last minute, thats such a bummer! I'm sure she'll be wishing she had come if she sees pictures! Don't stress too much over it :)

    I like the idea of an unplugged ceremony. My best friend's wedding videos are full of flashes and guests trying to get their own photos ending up in the way of the photographer/videographer

    We kindly asked that our guests not post to Facebook or social media until we returned from our honeymoon, and our guests didn't have any problems with it! They understood and agreed, and said they wished they had thought of that for their own weddings. Our friends and family respected our request, no problem-o!

    We are asking for no one to post pictures either until after we post the first pictures.

    Like the idea, but also love the idea of photos guests can get that sometimes photographers don't get.

      Yes, there are going to be bad pictures of you that can be posted but if your friends are your friends they won' post them.


      We only got one photographer that couldn't be everywhere all the time.  Our family and friends got shots that I am very happy that did.

      I love the idea of an unplugged ceremony. When looking at pictures of different ceremonies I think I love that you can see the looks on people's faces instead of them being hid behind cameras.


      I also love the ideas of asking family and friends not to post pictures on social media while you are still on vacation.
