A groom’s cake with a photography theme…

A wedding cake tastefully covered in photographs…

Place disposable cameras on all of the tables for tons of canded photos

Use pictures of you together for your invitations, save the dates, and all stationary

Have a photobook guest book.  You can either have a photobook preprinted from sites like mypublisher.com or blurb.com or you can have a polaroid camera to take instant pictures of your guests so that they can sign them and place them in a blank book.

Use cheap film as streamers???  I don’t know if that is any good or not…

If I think of more I will let you know.

If there is a blank wall you could use a projector to flash photos on the wall all night (both of you two together, as kids and even photographs you both love or places you have been)

I went to a wedding once where during the reception the photographer had a slideshow of his/her (can’t remember) pictures of the wedding projected on the wall. It was cool because the ceremony photos were up first and as the night went on, shots of the cake cutting and dancing made it on the screen. Very cool for your guests who will be pointing themselves out and giggling about other guests’ funny dance moves.

For your escort cards you can get a picture of the person make it look like a poloroid and put what table they are at under their picture.

One of the girls here did/is doing that I can’t remember who.

@aubrav: That is an awesome cake!

Maybe you could find photos of each guest and make it into their escort/place card somehow?  I’ve never seen it before, so I can’t give you a picture, but you could just size down a family or individual photo to business card size and people can recognize themselves rather than their names. 

You could also use frames as decor around.  Hang empty ones on walls, propped on tables.  I’d frame any signage you have then.

You could also use studio lights as a decor element, like the big tripod ones with the umbrella in fromt of them, which will also make for a nice, diffuse lighting scheme.

Also, alot of times flea markets/antique stores have old pictures of varying degrees of awesome ness, which could be used as table numbers.

Your guest book could be a photo album where you altearnate writing pages and family pictures.

You can find antique (usually not working) cameras at flea/antique markets and scatter those on the table along with flowers or whatever centerpiece you are working with.

You can call a local film school and maybe pay a few students to stand outside of your reception and take pictures paparatzzi style.

@soonerpsych: Hahaha nice! I guess your soonerPSYCHIC.

@Miss Peach Tree: I think all of these ideas are awesome.

FI and I were considering doing the same type a theme and calling it “Picture Perfect”.  Some of my ideas were putting the escort cards in small frames and having them double as favors.  We were going to take pictures ourselves of numbers (we live in the NYC area so we were going to walk around the city and for example table #5 we would have a picture of a 5th Ave sign) and put them in all different frames on the tables.  We were thinking of either doing a photobooth or just doing a polariod picture book and also having a display of pictures on a board somewhere like PP put above.  I got the idea when I saw this http://www.amazon.com/WeddingStar-Figurine-Picture-Perfect/dp/B00353NG9Q while browsing one day.  I am going to keep coming back to this for more ideas though.  Some of you bees are so creative!!
