    I was going to buy some to put around the reception but I decided it probably would just waste money I could put towards other things… only because most everyone I know has a camera! People always bring their cameras to weddings XD so I’ll just let them send me the pictures through a contest I’ll be having for best picture of the night… winner gets a $30 gift card lol (it’ll be similar to the I spy game but with a prize so we actually GET the pictures they take later on) hehe.

    A prize for the best pic is a Great idea! Most everyone I know will bring a camera.

    I don’t think they’re a good idea. The quality of photos from disposable cameras are really bad and it can really add up to buy the cameras and then pay to get them developed. Better to put info about photo sharing website and have people upload their pics for you. you will get better quality and its free!

    Yay! A lot of people will say it’s a waste but from what I’ve seen/heard it’s an awesome idea. I’m doing this aswell as giving each kid one with a scavanger hunt page

    My sister did this for her wedding… it ending up costing them a fortune. Kids took pictures so there were A LOT of crotch shots and hardly any good pictures… but it WAS fun.

    My aunt did this and it was AWFUL. I made the album, and I took ZERO pictures out of that pool. Also lots of people took those home with them.

     

    In this day and age–lots of people have their own digital cameras.

    Don’t waste your money.

    @USER876: thank you for pointing this out!! my aunts decided to take pictures behind the photographer during our formals.  It pissed me off so much – and I’m so glad my photographer said something that they should at least wait until he took the main pictures then they could snap some.

    @bolita7: Yeah we just wanted to have an I spy thing soooo bad however I feared we’d never get the pictures sent to us afterwards… what better way than to make a contest of it? Even if the prize is small it’s a driving force for people to be creative and follow through with emailing them!

    @USER876: Hahahah PERFECT. I love “Uncle Bobs”. And by that I mean hate. I can’t tell you how many times I found the perfect vantage point to take a great photo and it was ruined by an Uncle Bob. I felt so awkward saying something to them but after one too many missed opportunities I found my voice!
