I used Yogile.com for mine. You can sign up for a free account or an upgraded account. It is around $25 for an ‘upgraded’ account which is good for a year.  You create a unique url (i.e. http://www.yogile.com/youralbumname) and email address (i.e. [email protected])  through the website that your guests can upload their photos to. There is also an option to add a password for it if you wish. Guests can then either go to the website to upload photos, or they can send the photos via email to the address. If they are taking photos with their cell phones then that is a really easy option.

The thing i liked about it was that they did not have to create an account of their own to upload photos. I didn’t want that to be a deterrent if they didn’t want to create an account.

My friends that did just uploaded to Facebook (we told them they could).  My less tech savy attendees brought me their cameras/phones so I could get the pics off lol.  But we did have a small wedding. 🙂

Good luck finding the perfect site!

PS: I’m NOT a fan of Snapfish!  Mother-In-Law put her pics there and they were a pain to download (required account, could only download a few at a time, etc) without paying or buying something. Small pics sized down from ILs kick arse camera (camera doesn’t even HAVE settings that small!).

my brother’s suggestion was to make a private Facebook event, invite all the people coming to the wedding and then they can upload photos to the event page. I liked the idea, but then I tried to do it on my phone the night before the wedding and Facebook was screwing up and it just became one of those things like ‘y’know what? NOT worth it!’ and gave up. some guests uploaded ether photos to facebook anyway, a couple gave me their memory cards… heaps of people were taking photos and I’ve hardly seen any of them, which is kind if annoying, but my ‘pro’ photos (taken by my brother) were so good that I don’t really mind

For the younger crowd, there are apps like WedPics and WeddingParty that are like instagram/facebook but only for your invited guests to upload photos to. I am so excited to use one of these so all the pictures are there in one place and guests can update it all through the night instead of expecting people to upload to a site in the days/weeks/months after

I would deffently avoid Facebook becasue you are probably not facebook friend with all your guest. Facebbok could be good to show some of the photos for your friends but not to collect all photos from your guest.  I would go for one of the sites thar are made for collecting photos. Thinkgs to look for: 

– Are the photos uploaded in high quality? – If you want to print them later you want them in orginal quality. 

– Is it possible to download all photos later?

– How much photos can be uploaded. Is there a space limit?

– Can all guest upload their photos in a easy way. Without creating accounts etc? I think it is important that you do not force all guest to create accounts and it should be easy and simple so older guest also can handle it. 

– Do I want a slide show or anythin like that during the wedding?
