I would like to put disposible cameras on the tables with a list of about 10 things for each table to capture. I am just wondering if anyone has any suggestions of reception items to capture this way. We are not doing speeches, bouquet or garter toss so I wanted to do something to get the guests involved in some way.

Centerpieces, headtable decorations, people dancing, other decorations, “funkiest shoes”, etc…
But be careful… we put camera’s on the tables for my grandparents 50th anniversary party and GUYS took them in the bathroom. Thankfully there was no nudity but there were pictures of some of the guys peeing….

Disposable cameras are a waste of money since most people don’t use them properly and it costs a fortune to develop them, with the chance that you may only get one or two useable pcitures out of the entire bunch. Most people will bring their own digital cameras from home. Are you not having a professional photographer? They will capture everything that you’re describing. If you want any pictures that your guests take, just ask and most of them will be more than happy to share their pictures with you.

I loved the disposable camera idea and wanted to do it for my wedding, but I dont think I will. Now that almost everyone has a digital camera and you will (most likely?) be having a professional photographer, its not totally necessary. If you want to make this kind of like a fun activity for your guests you could make it more of a game by having clues of what to take pictures of and then people will have to figure out what youre talking about. Or you could do something like…
Take a picture of your favorite part of the wedding
Take a picture of someone youve never met before
Take a picture of something that was unexpected
Take a picture of yourself with someone you love
Take a picture of something you see that is beautiful
That way every picture will be different. Im sure you could come up with so many more!

Maybe taking a picture of something that starts with an “a”, then a “b”, etc. and guests at each table can fill out a sheet explaining what they took pictures of.

Yes beware. Sounds like a good idea at first, but then when people start to dance, drink, and especially DRINK ha you may get back some undesired pictures or no pictures at all. Plus you would be spending about 7 dollars or so to get every camera developed with who knows what. However, if you still want to do it anyhow give one trusted person at each table the camera and have them do it.

I personally think the “undesired” pictures are the best ones of all! They’re shots your photographer would never take, and will give you a whole new way to remember your wedding! I can say that there will be disposable cameras at every table at our wedding, and I’m pumped about it. Have you seen Martha’s “I Spy” game for your list of instructions? It could easily be modified, and i think she even has a template.

The “undesired” pics are the ones that I am looking for. We are having a professional photographer but I just thought it would be fun to see what the guests come up with! Around here, you only pay if the photos turn out. And I think that it’s only about $3 to develope a disposible camera. I’m still thinking about it. Thanks for the link to the Martha list!

I really wanted to have disposable cameras but since all of the adults will more then likely bring a nice digital camera my future hubs and I feel in love with this idea from Martha 🙂
It is his project and won’t too pricy since we don’t have a ton of kids coming…can’t wait!

I can’t find it now, but I saw where one Bee made little business size cards for each table that had Flickr account info on them so people can upload thier digital camera pics on one site. Thought that was a good way to save a little money.

This will be really cute – I think it’s a great idea. I want to do something similar but having people use their own digital cameras and have them upload them to a flickr account!
