You may remember our post “The Curse of the Wedding Photography Wrecker,” which shared a KTXL FOX40 “Don’t Be That Guy” news segment showing smartphone-wielding wedding guests getting in the way of the professional photographer. The video showed guests getting up-close-and-personal with couples during their vows, when they cut the cake, and even during the first dance. Think that’s bad? It gets worse!
Presenting you with a new kind of smartphone wedding wrecker: the bride herself! In the video above, it’s the bride—not a guest—who decides to pull out her cellphone. Right in the middle of the pastor’s message, underneath the blusher of her veil, she pops her phone out of the front of her dress, slides it open, and begins to type. Is she texting someone? Maybe updating her Facebook status to “married”? All the while, holding her free hand, her poor groom looks on with a distinct frown.
We have just one suggestion for our readers: Don’t be that guy (or gal)!
