Why you should put your phone down at a wedding ceremony
Recently there’s been a lot of talk about how mobile phones or more often, smartphones can easily take away from that feeling of authenticity of a certain event. Go on YouTube and find any video shot during a concert. Go to the comment section and you’ll find countless people complaining about how they see an ocean of phones. It goes without saying that mobile phones became an inherent part of our lives, but perhaps it is a good idea to put them down every once in a while. Especially on special occasions, like concerts or… weddings!
It’s completely understandable to have a phone with you at all times during your wedding. Despite all the joy and love around you, there might be some sudden emergency, an issue with your catering provider or a call from your relative who couldn’t come but still wants to wish you all the best in the world. You and your guests might also want to do the most obvious thing – selfies! They’re obviously a great token of memory and there’s nothing wrong with taking a couple of them.
So, why you should put your phone down at a wedding ceremony?
However, if you’re reading this, you need to keep in mind that most likely there will be a wedding photographer with you during the entire day. You don’t want to look through your wedding pictures in ten or twenty years and see people with their noses in their phones!
Actually, if you think about it, all these people commenting on YouTube videos might have a point. On special days it is important to be in the moment. We’re not saying that you should ban phones entirely from your wedding reception. All we want for you is to get photos with the WOW factor. And for us to do this, you and your guests need to be present and in the moment! Those notifications can be checked later! You can also upload these pictures tomorrow. Go and enjoy what’s probably one of the most special day in your entire life!
