    Everybody will have digital cameras there anyway – don’t waste your money. Disposable cameras give low quality pics. The ones you get from people’s personal digital cameras will be sooo much better. And, you can set up a Flickr page to have people upload them for next to nothing.

    keep in mind that it may be cheap to buy them but it costed me a fortune to develope the film.  I gave mine out to kids and i only had 3 to develope. Granted For some reason I got double prints instead of thinking of getting one and scanning, but it cost me $40 to develope 3 disposable cameras.

    My sister bought these and a LOT of the pictures didn’t come out great..if at all. Just set up a site where everyone can upload any pictures they take on their digital cameras.

    I definitely wouldn’t do the cameras if you already have the pro photographer and flip cams (which btw, cute idea – I may have to steal it!). We’re planning on setting up a flikr (or something of the sort) account and printing the details to that on little cards for our guests to bring home. The card will include the username and password for which they can upload their pics under. We’re still having the pro photographer and all that jazz but it will be nice to see our wedding from our guests perspective.

    having a couple of flip cams around is a great idea! skip the disposables. the quality is so low they won’t be worth the cost to have them developed. set up a photosharing website and ask your guests to upload their digital pics there.

    I have always wanted to but after hearing how horribly alot of pictures turned out I am not so excited to get them anymore. Plus, I have to pay to get them developed too and I would rather just not deal with that. I am going to put faith in my photographers and their ability to take great pictures. Besides, nowadays people bring their digital camaras with them to places like weddings so I can just ask that they send me pictures they took for free!

    Disposable cameras are a waste. Bad for the environment and the cost is not nearly worth it. Most everyone has a pretty decent camera on their phone so more motivation not to have disposables.
