We will have disposable cameras at our tables. Do any of you have wording for a card to place with the camera instructing guests what to do?
I was going to say something like “chose the best photographer at your table” so that only children aren’t taking photos….
Also, any wording asking guests with digital cameras to email them to us?
My mind is mush with the big day just 2 weeks away!!!

I love the idea of the I Spy cards at the tables for disposable cameras. There is a Martha Stewart template I believe (I dont have time to find the link, I need to get ready for work, booo.)
Have you thought about creating a Flickr account and providing the login and password to your guests so they can all upload their pics directly to the site? I guess it depends on how large your guest list is, and if you can trust them not to delete photos because they may be unflattering to them. Just an option that we were going to use 🙂

I would consider doing a photoshare site where guests that brought their cameras can upload their pictures. You would pre-print a card and put it on each table to inform your guests.
In my experience, disposable cameras end up being a waste. Besides most people horsing around with them, the developing gets expensive and the quality is poor.
The very reason why you are brainstorming ways to instruct guests how to use these is the reason not to do it.

@USER876: I have a few friends… and family.. who’ve done the disposable camera and got such unique wonderful pics. My wedding is in 2 weeks and cameras bought so that part is decided LOL
We’re also doing a photo share site.
Developing at Sam’s club is very cheap.
So thanks, but at this point I’m just looking at a creative thing to write on the table card.

@CholeLeAnn: We’re doing that as well as our email address….some who will have pics aren’t too internet savvy and having them upload to a site would be a PITA to end up walking them through LOL!
I like the I Spy idea too! Thanks!

I think this is such a fun idea! Sorry I don’t have any ideas for you but I’m interested to see what other people suggest

well here’s what I have (found on a site that sells cameras just for weddings.. we got the HD Kodak ones though)
Use this camera on the table
to take candid pictures of all our friends and family…
The fun, the special moments,
and of course those not-to-be-forgotten shots!
Pass the camera around
and let everyone enjoy the fun.
When the pictures are all taken,
leave the camera in the basket by the door.
We’ll take care of the rest!
If you have your own camera,
we would love to see the photos you take!
Please email them to us at
Thank you for being our photographers!

I like the middle suggestion

I borrowed some and wrote some of this:
Take this camera and have some fun
Get some pictures of everyone!
Maybe you’ll see something
We didn’t see
That we can keep as a memory!
The flash is required
Because it is night.
If you don’t use it,
The snaps won’t come out right.
Hold the front switch over
‘Til the little light flutters.
You’re all ready now!!
So please press the shutter.
The perfect distance
Is four to ten feet.
Any nearer or farther
Will be your defeat.
When you are done and the film’s no more
please leave this camera in the basket by the entry door…
And if you take photos on your own camera with care,
we’re begging you please oh please do share!
Thank you for being our photographers tonight!

@CholeLeAnn: What a terrific idea! I was wondering what to do to keep the teens and tweens at our wedding occupied, and this should do it. I went hunting for the link and found it.
