Yea my aunt got married last year and her Mother-In-Law was insisting on having disposable cameras on the table. My aunt knew they wouldn’t come out, but she didn’t feel like arguing so she got the cameras.

She had about 10 cameras and seriously not 1 good picture!! They are really, really not worth it In My Humble Opinion.

That’s a good idea for the kids…I was trying to think of something they could do that didn’t include crayons, felts, glue, anything that will make a huge mess.  Even if you don’t develop them, it still gives them something to focus on.  Is there a way to keep the flash on?

@Ryansgirl: You could probably print a pretty label and stick it to the camera as a reminder. It may help some.

Yeah, this is a dated activity (goes back to the early 90’s).  People use photosharing sites now since most people are bringing digital cameras with them, but look on the bright side…..the kids were entertained, and you can’t put a price tag on that.

Thank you for sharing.  My Future Mother-In-Law asked me I planned on buying them to use at the wedding, but all I did was shrug.  I guess I could, but I also figured guests would bring their own cameras as well.  It’s something I’ll have to think over.

I agree with putting labels on the cameras though to remind people to use flash.

@Rouquine: How about adhering a picture list on the back of the camera for example   

Can you snap a picture when the…

bride and groom are kissing
brida nd groom are cake cutting
pictures of the bridal party
bride and groom dancing
bride and groom eating

Kind of a check off list but its on the back so that as a guest they can cross it off.
Have a friendly reminder where to drop off the camera when done hand it to the brides mother or bridal party

The only experience I have had with them was at my sisters wedding. We put one on every table and we got all the same pics from all of them. I think it was because they did a lot of their family photos during the reception so everyone used them to take those photos.
