Bride Asks Her Guests NOT To Take Wedding Pictures
For your special day, you want the pictures to be a reminder of how beautiful the new couple looked as they exchanged their vows. However, more and more brides are asking their guests to leave the pictures up to the professional.
Guests often are using cameras and phones to take pictures at weddings — and, in many cases, upload them to Twitter or Facebook without the bride getting to see/approve them first.
Sometimes the couple doesn’t want to have things shared unless they are the ones doing the sharing. Another potential issue is the fact that sometimes surprises are ruined. While I have written about wedding party and guest etiquette and not sharing bad pictures of the bride just because you look great, there is also the possibility that your post of the bride before the ceremony might pop up in the groom’s feed before the big reveal.
Seems fair. However, I like to see the candid photos that guests take. The professional can’t be at every table or get every perspective. However, I do think that we as guests can wait ’til after the wedding to upload them!
