Polka Dot Hot Spot – A Media Free Wedding

by | Polka Dot Hot Spot, Weddings


Polka Dot Bride

It’s that time of the month when we suck it up for something real, something that makes us tick but we rarely speak about. Today I want to talk about media free weddings. How do you feel about your wedding photos being posted on Facebook as it happens? Are you asking guests to refrain from posting things like this until your professional images are back?

So many occasions in our lives as now documented as they happen on social media. Weddings, often fraught with invitation lists, privacy and the magic of this really intimate part of one’s life begs the question. What is your line? Where do you draw it? No Facebooking? No photographs at all (bar your hired professionals!) Or do you not care? What are you thinking? What are you doing?

    We are not putting any social media bans on our wedding. If our guests are having a good time and want to tell people about it… go for it! I can’t imagine any of our lovely guests we have invited will be doing anything during the ceremony or speeches and if they do, it reflects badly on them, not us. Like most people, we have had to make concessions and cutbacks on our list and can’t invite everyone. For those people, maybe seeing a photo or post will let them share in the day a little.

    We are not celebrities either.. except for the people that are there, not many other people are that interested!

    We are asking for no photos during the ceremony – except for our photographer…we want people to be present. And since neither my finance nor myself are on any social media sites we will definitely ask that none are distributed! we are aiming for a small, intimate and laid back affair and fb just wouldn’t fit the bill at all!!!!
