My FI and I toiled over the guestlist for months and we want everyone to be emotionally present in one of the most important days of our lives. We think that technology can be distracting, not to mention disruptive. As cool as it would be to see the evening from their perspective, I'd much rather them be what they've always been our closest friends and family. We hired a photographer for the other stuff. I'm sure someone has asked this question before but how would you guys feel, as guests at a wedding, to be asked to refrain from using your mobile device during the ceremony? Of course we'd dress it up make it sound sweet...but the end game is to have a ceremony where the only people moving about taking photos would be the people we've hired to do so.
