Because many disposable cameras do not offer the best quality photos, and because many of our guests already have digital cameras. We plan to do something similar to Mrs. Cherry Pie (and other bees did) did: leaving cards with a place for guests to upload their pictures.

I definately like the idea of leaving cards so people can upload their photos!  Everyone loves to share the shots that they catch throughout the night.

 The idea of disposable cameras has good intentions behind it- but the only thing is that no matter how hard you try if you’re having children at your wedding, they ALWAYS end up getting a hold of them and taking random pictures that aren’t exactly of what you intended them to be for.

I realllly love these. Maybe they would be cheesy … I haven’t decided yet!!!!

If I do provide cameras, I will use these ones. They’re covered in swarovski crystals. You know what? They have digital cameras you can rent … do they have digital ones that are also disposable? Hmm. That would be cool.

OR instead of that, do a little area where guests can have pictures taken. There’s so many possibilities, I haven’t decided exactly what I’ll do yet.

…and because the quality will not be as good as a professional shot, I still love the pictures and memories! So I would just have a seperate album full of the non-pro pics.

I would recommend going the digital route as well. You might want to let guests know that you are welcoming (encouraging!) candid shots at your reception and remind them to bring their cameras, either on your website or some other way. I know there have been a bunch of weddings where I didn’t bring mine.

I would skip the disposible cameras.  Like LilMisPriss mentioned, kids are going to be taking the majority of the pictures anyways and I think most everyone has a digital camera they pack around these days. 

I don’t think it’s worth the cost of the energy and resources to make the camera, collect them, develop the pictures, sort through them, decide how many pictures you REALLY need of someone’s cleavage/rear end and then dispose of the camera.  Those suckers are going to be in the landfull for a long time when (for free!) your guests could upload their good photos for you. 

Just my $0.02.

I am going to have the disposable cameras and the cards for instructions to upload as well. The more pictures the better!

I have mobleme and have a photo gallery.  I got some business cards printed from vista print with the info on it to put at the tables.  They were free however you have to pay for shipping.  Also if you don’t want their logo on the back of the card its about $4.00 extra.

I am also planning to give each kid a camera to go wild with at the wedding…. Im not expecting the photos to be great, but at least they will have a blast playing with them…. (i think we will have about 3-5 kids total).   *a friend of mine did this at her wedding and the kids loved it!*

I just set up a flickr account and ordered business cards from vistaprint!  It was less than $10 after shipping for 250 premium cards.  I don’t need have that many but there wasn’t a lesser option.  I think this is a great idea!

I think that disposable cameras always look cute and thoughtful.  BUT they add up super fast.  And Fiance said that most people have their own disposable cameras, which is true.  And don’t want to waste time using the disposable if the pictures are going to be taken away from them.  Plus then you have to DIY stickers with instructions for guests to return them to you.  

So we are doing the flickr account too.  Jeska:  were you happy with your vistaprint cards?

Rosie: I just ordered them! However, I ordered Rehearsal Dinner Invites from there and was VERY pleased.  You cannot beat the price.  However, be careful when checking out they try to get you to buy other things!
