Unplugged Wedding Signs

If you don’t want your guests holding up their phones taking photos as you say ‘I do’ or walk down the aisle, then go unplugged. Have a wedding sign at the entrance to your ceremony that makes it clear you wish your guests not to take photos during the ceremony. You wish to see their faces and enjoy the moment, you don’t need 20 photographers, you have a professional photographer hired!

No matter how large the sign, it is also good for someone to remind everyone at the start of the ceremony that you don’t wish photos to be taken, a reminder to turn phones off is a good one too. Read our guide on Why You Should Consider An Unplugged Wedding.
