If you’ve ever wondered what an unplugged ceremony is, you’re in the right place!
An unplugged wedding ceremony is becoming increasingly popular among couples who want to ensure that their special day is a truly meaningful and intimate experience.
In this blog post, we’ll explore what an unplugged ceremony is, the benefits of having one, and some tips for implementing one on your wedding day! Come check it out:
Let’s hop right into itttt! An unplugged ceremony is a wedding ceremony where guests are asked to turn off their electronic devices (aka cell phones, ipads, etc) and be fully present in the moment. So what does that mean? Basically, guests are asked to not take any photos/videos during the ceremony and put their phones away.
1. Greater intimacy: When guests are not distracted by their phones or cameras, they are more likely to be fully present and engaged in the ceremony. This creates a more intimate and meaningful experience for everyone involved.
2. Better photos: When guests are not taking photos or videos, the professional photographers and videographers can capture the ceremony without interference or obstruction. This ensures that the couple gets the best possible photos and videos of their special day. Who doesn’t want that!?
3. Respect for the ceremony: An unplugged ceremony ensures that the wedding ceremony is treated with the respect and reverence it deserves. By turning off their devices, guests are showing that they value the sacredness of the moment.
1. Communicate with your guests: Make sure you communicate with your guests well in advance of the wedding day. Let them know that you will be having an unplugged ceremony and explain why it’s important to you.
2. Provide signage: Consider placing signs at the entrance to the ceremony area reminding guests to turn off their devices.
3. Have an announcement: Have the officiant make an announcement before the ceremony begins requesting that guests turn off their devices.
4. Consider a compromise: If you want to allow some photos to be taken, consider having a designated time after the ceremony for guests to take photos.
In conclusion, an unplugged ceremony can be a beautiful and meaningful way to ensure that your wedding day is a truly intimate and special experience for everyone involved. By communicating with your guests and implementing a few simple strategies, you can create a ceremony that is respectful, meaningful, and unforgettable. Plus, your professional wedding photos won’t be ruined with a bunch of phones in the air 😉 win win!
