Gabrielle Union Requests No Cameras At Wedding
Ellisha Rader Mannering
Most couples expect their guests to take a lot of pictures at their wedding. Some even encourage them to do so and rely on guests instead of professional photographers.
Gabrielle Union however, has asked her guests not to bring cameras to her wedding. While Gabrielle and her soon-to-be husband Dwyane Wade will have a photographer at the ceremony, they are afraid that if they allow guests to take photos, they will be tempted to share them and neither Dwyane nor Gabrielle want pictures of their wedding on social networks.
Aside from the no cameras rule, Gabrielle claims that she is pretty laid back about the wedding planning and has even let Dwayne do most of the planning.
“I am the girl that would just rather be at a sports bar with a cold beer… We are pretty deep (into the wedding planning), and by ‘we,’ I mean he and the wedding planner. Once he realized I was trying to turn it into a frat party with beer pong he would take over. He really ‘Kanye-d’ himself and really doubled down – I’m really just along for the ride,” she said.
As far as the wedding guest list goes, Gabrielle and Dwyane decided to only invite their family members and close friends. Don’t expect to see a long line of celebrities waiting to get into the secret wedding venue in Miami.

The wedding will take place in August, and the couple recently sent out wedding invitations to their guests. The invitations were attached to wooden cards and read, “Put on your dancing shoes and join us for a THROW DOWN.”
What do you think of Gabrielle Union’s no camera rule and do you think it will prevent their wedding photos from showing up on social networks or elsewhere on the Internet?
