Unplugged Weddings: Should The Marrying Couple Ask Guests To Surrender Their Smartphones?

Posted: Updated:

Smartphones at weddings are a blessing and a curse. Guests can use their phones to take photos and videos of your Big Day, capturing moments you might not have seen otherwise. But some guests get a little too tech-happy and start tweeting, Facebooking and Instagramming the hell out of the affair, which can interfere with your professional photos and doesn't allow guests to actually be present.

Now some couples are going so far as to ask their guests to surrender their smartphones for the duration of the wedding -- a practice that has sparked a lot of debate among brides, grooms and guests alike.

On Friday, we asked our followers to tell us how they would feel about surrendering their smartphone at a wedding. Click through the slideshow below to find out what people on both sides of the unplugged wedding debate had to say.
