Looking for advice from the all-knowing bee on what the best options are for having guests share any photos they took at your wedding with you? We are planning to send out our thank you cards soon and were going to include a little note to have guests load photos to a website…any recommendations on the best sites to use?

I’ve heard of people who did photo scavenger hunts during the reception. They put, say a picture frame, on the table and listed suggested photos to get — a cute old couple, maid of honor with a drink in her hand, bride and groom kissing, etc… And at the bottom of the frame or card, they posted a website and/or email address for where to send the photos. I’m thinking with the popularity of facebook, it’d be easy to create a FB page specifically for your wedding. Tell your guests to “friend” your new page, upload the pics and tag your new page in it.
I guess as a reminder, you could put the same info on the thank-you cards, but I think telling them the night of the event that you want their photos, will yield more results. And the photo hunt makes it fun!

@retroindigo: the only problem with doing it through facebook is that the picture resolution is very poor. Even when you do it “high resolution” it is not as good as if you got to the picture another way.
We are probably going to have our laptop actually at the wedding on a small table near the door so as people leave they will see it and a sign that say “wait. leave us your pictures of the day” Our catering company is going to have a computer someone help guests copy the pictures onto the computer. I think this might be the best option because I want to be sure to get as many pictures as we can from our guests.
We will also be doing a website that people can load them onto, and including that in the thank you card. I hope to see more opinions about what website people like the best on here.

We are going to have an account set up with one of the photo sharing websites, (Kodak, Picasa, etc) and have cards for each guest encouraging them to upload their pictures and check out others.
