POLL: Cell phones at weddings

Is it acceptable for a bride and groom to ask wedding guests to surrender their phones? With more and more people recording more and more of our lives without our consent.... and then putting those photos in places that the subjects might not necessarily want... some brides and grooms are taking things into their own hands.

Some happy couples have started asking wedding guests to either check their phones or not bring them in the first place. It has sparked a number of online conversations and debates on sites like The Huffington Post and Reddit.

They say not only does all the snapshot-taking put pictures "out there" it can also interfere with the professional photos they have paid a photographer to take during their special day.
