If you had or are going to have the “I Spy” cards for guests to take photos, was it worth it? Did the pictures you got back make you glad you did it, or were they more “meh”? How did you collect all of the pics? Is there a free and easy place guests can upload them? Besides the obvious, Facebook, lol. Did you leave multiple cards on tables, or just one per? Anything else you can tell me would be fabulous! I like the idea a lot, but I want it to be worthwhile 🙂

I haven’t had my wedding yet but we are (possibly) doing i spy cards.. either way we have made a photo sharing site through http://weddingturtle.com/
You register and your site gets set up. Guests just need to enter a password and they can upload pics. They even send you like 250 free cards with all the info on it

No one did anything my website upload card also had a mistake on the log in name. I did 1 per in an Ikea Tolsby frame per table. I made cards for Flickr and attached them to our favors.

We did I-spy cards, just one on each table in a frame, I added ‘be quick to click theres lots to gain, first to show the bride wins a bottle of champagne!’ I wanted to encourage people to get up and take photos!! It turned into a race between two tables, it was so funny (the groomsmen were stalking the Mother of the Groom waiting for her to cry!) some of the photos were so random!! We were sent some of the photos via USB sticks in the post and many also ended up on Facebook! (of course!) We thought they were worth it!!

This was the MOST dissapointing aspect of my wedding planning BY FAR! No one did it, I even made sure to tell them about it several times. I think only two women did take pics other than the ppl at their table trying to look sexy or stupid. I spent a lot of time on those damn I Spy cards and kept checking my shutterfly account and really cried over it. Make sure someone is taking pics of the reception.

@Carolyn72: I’m sorry to here your experience was SO disappointing. My Fiance talked me out of it, so I’m loosing this DIY. I already have the photo sharing cards (free from vistaprint), so I’ll just make sure the hostesses get those to guests taking photos. I guess asking for random pictures assumes they’re not going to be enjoying the company of others at their table or dancing! We’ll have a photographer, so he’ll know what pictures I don’t want to miss. I’ll just leave it at that. Ultimately, it’s a gamble we’re gonna pass on.
Anyone out there have a successful I Spy? Get lots of pictures…good ones?

We went to a wedding where they had a phone app that sent all the pics to an online album, so she didn’t have to collec them. Her list was very elaborate! I don’t know how many people actually checked things off the list (I stopped after about 2 of them) but she did get like 300 pics in the album from the app. It was Bride Edition or something like that.
