I'm getting married in September and I'm really not into the idea of people posting images of me and my new husband up online before the evening guests get there as I feel it'll ruin the theme. How can I politely ask people not to do this?!
Joanne Thunder - I have put it in the guest information that we have sent with our invites x X
A polite note from both of us. We hope you enjoy our day and take lots of snaps but we are hoping you can keep them under wraps. Feel free to share them later on in the day but we kindly ask you wait until the evening is underway. We want our evening guests to take a look before the pictures go onto Facebook.
Claire McPhee - We got our registrar to mention it before I walked down the aisle. She just said we would love them to take as many photos as possible but please refrain from putting them on social media until we ask people to do so
Tarina Butcher - At a family wedding we went to last year it was read out by the Vicar when he did the bit about as there was an official photographer no photography during the church service, no throwing confetti inside the Church grounds, and then he said that whilst the bride and groom were happy for the guests to take lots of photos they kindly asked that none were shared on social media until the next day so as not to spoil things for the guests attending in the evening - everyone respected the request.
Sarah Hogg - We're ok with them going on social media I'm not even to bothered about us posting first but tbh I don't want any on there till after the evening guests have arrived. I never thought bout asking the registrar will put in our wedding plan for them.
Natalie Waller - We just asked the registrar to say something. That people could snap away as long as thy didnt get in the photographers way and that nothing was posted on social media until the next day x
Helen Leggy Bateman - Hi I had same dilemma my mum ordered some cards off vista print with a little poem on to put inside invite and guests will be politely told on arrival at church
Rachel Alexandra - Ask the toastmaster / registrar to make a little announcement on your behalf once everyone is seated for the ceremony. My sister did that and it worked well ?
Vicki Brown - We asked registrar to announce at beginning and we also printed a little poem that went out on back of order of service that was handed out at beginning of ceremony too x
Kelly Randall - Our toastmaster is going to say not to post anything online until we have on the Monday after the wedding on the Saturday . I think people should and will respect this .
Rosaline Adams - Our registrar asked if we wanted her to mention it, and said they can take as many pics as they like, but asked if they could refrain from adding to social media until we give the go ahead
Katie Pettigrew - Usually the registra will say something before the bride comes in, feel free to take photos but please do not put up online until........ xx
Beth Bee - We put a small note on our invites in the guest info section that said "Please keep any photos you have of us tucked away until we have shared the news ourselves" we'll also have a couple of signs up on the day :)
Louise Robinson - I've been to a number of weddings that have wanted this.
And they just politely put a little poem on the invitations about not releasing any photos until the bride and groom have.
Maybe it's something for you to consider?
Yazmin Hussain - Put it on the invites, have a sign before they walk into the venue or put a little card on all the tables and also make an announcement on the day to really stress the importance of it
