I briefly mentioned once before that we’re using a photo-sharing app for our wedding festivities. There are pros and cons to a plugged-in wedding (i.e., guests using electronic devices during the ceremony and reception to take pictures). Some of the cons include: the idea that when people take photos they often miss the moment they are so busy trying to capture; you are not necessarily present when you’re trying to take the perfect picture. There is also the possibility that guests trying to take photos will get in the way of the photographer (that the couple is likely spending thousands of dollars on/for to document the day). Here’s a whole article about why you should have an unplugged wedding from Huffington Post. (Holla! Recognize any bee wedding pics in that article?)
However, our guests are spending several days at the resort and we’re having lots of wedding-related events. I definitely want to see everyone’s pictures. Plus, we’re getting married outside so the flash thing shouldn’t be an issue. And with our smallish guest list I don’t think our photographer’s view will be obstructed. (My fingers are crossed anyway!)
Yesterday I showed you our “I spy” cards to help encourage people to take photos. Today I’m going to share how I hope to get everyone to share their pictures. Enter…The Wedding Party App!
