Wedding Advice & Planning Update

Taking a poll...
8 • 3 • 2011  |  Misc.
I can't believe I am officially less than five months from our wedding date! I have done a few more things since my last post, and I am getting excited to share more with everyone as it gets closer. The bachelorette and bridal showers have been planned and dates marked off. The invitations are being designed this week with the lovely, amazingly talented ladies at Hello Lucky, and our cake tasting is next week, that is the one my fiancee has been waiting for! 
 
Anyway, the main reason of my post was to get a poll out there on something that I am struggling with making a decision on. I obviously witness a lot of wedding photos being ruined by guests with their cameras in the way or in front of the actual photographer that the couple paid for to shoot their wedding. Because of that, there is a small part of me considering asking guests not to bring cameras to the wedding. My question is to find out what people's opinions are on this. Vendors, guests of weddings, brides, grooms, etc., I want to hear from anyone on what you think, because while I can usually make decisions very easily, this one has eluded me. 
 
I don't want to come off like a jerk asking guests to leave their cameras at home, but in a completely dark night club where our wedding is taking place, I also don't want to see our wedding images disrupted by other flashes, etc. There is also a small part of me that wants to keep it private in some way, and not have tons of pictures splattered all over Facebook the next morning. Then, I go back and say, that sounds rude, and my guests would be bummed if they couldn't have their own memories of themselves at our wedding. 
 
There was a good article written on Offbeat Bride about this very subject, which sparked my thoughts on it. Please let me know your honest thoughts on this... I am really struggling with this one! 
 
Cheers,

  Kathryn
