You could have a photo booth (so fun!) and maybe cameras at each table for your guests to take pictures of. They don’t have to be instant cameras – they could be all kinds with different types of film and/or digital. What about table numbers made to look like a film strip?

You’re welcome! The photobooth might be more in your budget than you think. I did a DIY one using the arch from my ceremony as the backdrop (clipped on some fabric), and I asked my photographer to bring a tripod and second camera. She even had lights I could use. Your photographer might be able to help you out too, and you could try to find an area where you can clip or pin fabric as a backdrop. I collected props from the dollar store and people had a blast! I just got my pics on CD so I’m going to post some of the photobooth pics on our wedding website.

You could use cheap, vintage cameras from ebay as decor! Love this idea (i’m very into photography, too!

My FH and I are both full time photographer and are incorporating tons of photo stuff in our wedding. We are doing a portrait station {DIY fauxbooth} and in stead of having a receiving line, after the ceremony we are going to take a photo with each guest. We’ve collected a handful of working vintage and toy cameras and are having a camera bar {22 out of 80 guests are other wedding photographers}, non-working camera spread around as decor, Jones Soda with our photos on them, table numbers have photos on the back, hanging moo.com biz cards on our welcome table tree and a photo guest book filled with photos from us as kids up till now.  I know there are some companies that can put photos on cookies and what not but we decided not to go that rout. I also came across a photo a while back of boutonnieres made of film that were super cool. http://www.etsy.com/listing/24409197/film-flower-boutonniere?ref=sr_gallery_5&ga_search_query=boutonnieres&ga_search_type=category&category=weddings&ga_page=3&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title not sure if we are going to do that either.

Good luck, and don’t forget to post photos I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

I love the idea of using some twine and clothes pins to hang up photos of the history of your relationship or maybe dedications to grandparents and other family members. Just a thought!

Love Love Love the candy molds!!  I just bought 3 and putting them in our dessert bar!! As for the guest books we are using the ones we sell to our clients. We just design it using a lot of white space so people can write messages. You should see if your photographer can create on for you or use one of the consumer photobook companies like adorama, mpix or blurb.

I love adding the film to the bouquet too!

Aww! This is a super cute idea! I think someone else already suggested, but you can definitely get some old cameras to use as centerpieces. I’m thinking some wildflowers out of the top of a twin lens reflex would look adorable! Also, you could name your tables after famous photographers and use your favorite photos!

Oh, and ModPodge works wonders! I’m sure it would work if you still want to put negatives on candleholders.
