Unplugged Weddings: Should You Have One?

Unplugged Weddings: Should You Have One? An unplugged wedding is asking guests to turn off any electronic devices  for the duration of  your ceremony .  Yep, that includes iPhones, iPads, all other smartphones, cameras...  Why?  For the same reason, you switch off your phone at the theatre, because technology is awesome but it’s also annoying and distracting.   We’ve all sat behind THAT wedding guest: the one filming the ceremony on a screen the size of a small family car.   Social media is a big part of this problem.
