There are two main reasons why phones should not be allowed at your ceremony. The first one being phones can be a distraction. Imagine you're about to say your vows and someone's phone goes off? No way! Let's redo the whole thing.
Another distraction could be when the bride is walking down the aisle. Brides are already overwhelmed with emotions on their big day and being able to make eye contact with a familiar face while they walk the aisle can bring them peace and calm their nerves. No bride wants to look up and see dozens of phones in her face especially with the flash on. Weddings are significant, intimate, and your guests are there for one reason and that is you. They don't need other distractions and they don't need to distract you!
When there are numerous hands and phones down the aisle, the photographer has a hard time editing those out. That may be extra money for the bride and groom because editing each hand and phone out of the picture is a lot of work and time! You want to be able to look back at your big day and know technology didn't take over.
Unplugged ceremonies are new and may be difficult for people to understand. Simply put a sign at the entrance stating that this is an unplugged ceremony. If you trust your guests, allow them to keep their phones in their pockets or purses. If you don't trust your guests, have a basket at the entrance where they could drop their phones in and get them at the end of the ceremony. Your wedding planner could also be watching throughout the ceremony and make sure no one is breaking the rules.
