Your guests are like your personal paparazzi on your wedding day, but what should you do if you don’t want your special and intimate moments to find their way onto social media before you and your sweetheart have the chance to post anything? Unfortunately, you can’t always control the situation, however, there are steps you can take to make your wishes known and limit social media uploads if you wish!
- Include a Note on the Program. If you’re sending out printed invites, you could mention your no-photo rule on your programs. You could even include a small printed note with your invites if you have the extra budget.
- Announce It. Since you will have everyone’s attention at the start of the ceremony, get your officiant or master of ceremonies to announce your requests about photos and social media. This includes your DJ or band at the reception.
- Create a Sign. Another option is to create a sign that you can place at the entrance of your ceremony and reception. This helps ensure that all guests see it.
- Alter Your Privacy Settings. If you don’t want to take any chances, you can always change your social media privacy settings. This way, you can’t be tagged in any photos you haven’t approved.
I hope these ideas can be a help to you!
