Win 10 Beautiful One-Time-Use Cameras for your guest tables!

It’s Giveaway Time! You could win 10 of these ultra-pretty Kodak one-time-use cameras to place on your guest tables…and let the fun begin for guests who capture all the action taking place at your celebration.

At our wedding, our child guests had a blast taking lots of candid photos, and we thought some of them were as great as our professional photographers’ shots! They kept the kids engaged and happy, playing with each other, and giving us tons of adorable moments that our guests loved almost as much as the cake!

Here’s the camera style:

Here’s information about the camera.

And here’s how to enter: just post in the Comments section how you’ll invite guests to use these cameras, or how you’ve used them in the past at other weddings. At our wedding, my husband’s bosses had a lot of fun at their table taking a series of pictures with a sprig of parsley hidden in different places in each shot…they told us to look for the parsley, which was in one guest’s lapel pocket, behind another guest’s ear in another shot, in someone’s hand the next shot…very ingenious! Let’s hear your creative ideas, and you can win $50 worth of cameras for your wedding!

Contest ends 7/15/10, so get going!

  1. OMG!! This would be perfect for our reception. We are having a “Our day in your eyes” ice breaker. Each table will have a labeled camera and the guests will be asked to capture the magical moments as they see them. Then we are going to make a special photo album using the pics that our guests took, so that we can see our day through their eyes. Great giveway and excited for the opportunity to win. Our big day is 10/16/10

  2. These are great and would love them for our wedding. At my sisters wedding we found giving them to the kids made the best pictures because everyone LOVED posing for my niece and nephew. Their pics were the best of the night. Our plan was to let then take over on the disposables for our wedding!

  3. Hello!! I love picture taking and sharing them with family, so you can only imagine my excitement to hear about this giveaway. I would encourage our guests to take family and couple pictures so that we can have memories of every single person that was there. Afterwards, I would include their picture in the Thank You cards we send out as a nice touch and a great memory to add to not only our collection but theirs as well.

  4. We are so sorry about the length of our post but we were so excited when we saw this offer! We have actually been talking about ways to get more pictures of our wedding, don’t get us wrong love wedding photography, but it would be awesome to get more “unrehearsed” pictures from our wedding. So what we would like to do is leave a camera at each table during the reception and a few more just laying around and do a “wedding scavenger hunt”. We found a cute poem and check list online that we want to use and place on each camera.

    Poem:I’m your camera, so scavenge around, Hunt for those pictures that need to be found! Shoot away and complete the list, Find moments that the photographer missed. Snap away as best you’re able, **Then drop me off at the Guestbook table!** or **Then leave me here right at your table!**

  5. We’ve loved the idea of a photo guestbook (getting pics of everyone as they arrive and later putting them next to their note in the book), but not the choices. Polaroids would be too expensive because of supplies, while using computer programs might be too complex for some of our older guests. These would be perfect for our guestbook vision – everyone knows how to use a Kodak disposable camera, and there’d definitely be enough exposures to get everyone involved! Thanks for the opportunity 🙂

  8. I would love to give them to 10 different guests from various parts of our lives (high school friends, college friends, work friends, neighborhood friends, family friends, his family, my family, etc) to ensure that people from every part of our lives was captured. Our friends recently had these at their wedding and the pictures that some of us girls took together when we got a little tipsy are just hilarious/embarrassing and such a great reminder of a fun night together!

  9. My sister had disposable cameras at her wedding. She just set a camera on each guest table with a little card asking them to take pictures of anything they wanted during the reception. After she got the pictures developed it was great to see the different angles each table took. I especially liked the shots of the father and daughter dance. It showed the transition of my sister smiling, then crying tears of joy, then smiling at the end of the song, all with different angles. The pictures showed a beautiful story no single photographer could have achieved!

    • That’s great, Jeanie! And those multiple-angle,. succession shots always look so great when laid out in scrapbook style in the album, with three or more photos of the same scene arranged artfully on one or two pages!

  10. Having disposable cameras on the tables for our guests will be such a great way to remember a wonderful time with friends and family we don’t get the chance to see all the time due to living in so many different places across the country. My fiance and I are the babies of our families and we want to hold on to as many memories as possible and we feel that by our family taking pictures they will capture personal memories that our photographer might not get.

    • Great point, Megan! We’re such a global society now, that we might only see certain friends and family members when there’s something big going on…like the happy occasion of a wedding, or sadly at a funeral. So it’s quite wonderful to capture these rare and valuable happy and beautiful moments with guests just like you said…with guests getting those shots the professional photographer would never know to look for!

  11. I would love to have these at our destination wedding in October! We are also doing a photoscavenger hunt for our guests! We have a list for the children attending, and one for the adults on each table. I really love the idea that your guests can capture moments that you might not even know are happening at your own wedding (because let’s face it the bride and groom can be a tad preoccupied with other things at some point). The more memories and fun times captured at our wedding the better!

  12. This is a great idea! I would use these for our guests to really get a sense of what our wedding looked like through their eyes! I would put a list of things to capture on each table and treat it like a scavenger hunt! Thanks again for an awesome giveaway!

  14. I’ve been trying to figure out what to do for a guest book for our wedding. First I thought a plate would be perfect because I’m having such a small wedding, so the size seemed appropriate. But the more I thought about it, the more I feared I’d end up shoving it in a closet or breaking it.

    Then I saw a blogger who had an empty photo album as her guest book. Each guest got a whole page, and there were “writing prompts” (sorry, I’m a teacher) like name, location (good because the groom’s family is from England) and wishes for the couple. There were blacked out boxes to represent where photos of the signer would go after the wedding.

    So the way I would use these cameras is use them as an ice breaker/guest book material. I’d “assign” each guest a person they don’t know well and ask that they take 3 photos of that person. Maybe I’d suggest finding photo ops for 1 posed, 1 candid beside the couple, and 1 during a lawn game. I think people would not only enjoy the ice breaker, but they’d laugh that I was treating them like my students, especially my teacher friends 😀

    Thank you for this opportunity 🙂

  15. We plan on leaving photosharing cards on each table for our welcome party and tell our guest to take the whackiest picture of theirselves & us as well. Good way to break the ice for those who doesn’t know each other. We’re having a destination wedding in Jamaica so I know they will capture some fabulous pictures! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  16. We’re actually planning on getting some cameras like these for our wedding because we’re seriously looking forward to seeing what some of our brothers/brother-in-laws and friends will do. One brother-in-law is famous for taking really odd shots and they’re all so silly together that we’re bound to get at least one or two good ones and that completely makes it worth the money. I’ve never been to a wedding that had disposables, but I would probably spend the whole time doing silly poses with various guests, members of the bridal party and taking pictures of the food at really weird angles. Of course, I’d then have to ask for a copy of the pictures haha!

    • Sounds like so much fun!! I like the idea of taking silly pictures….I’ve seen some brides and grooms looking nervous and uptight at the wedding reception, thinking only about if their details are right and if people are dancing. the cameras let you let loose and have fun with people! And great idea about taking pix of the food at weird angles!! Neat!

  20. I have always wanted to leave disposable cameras around at my wedding with a simple instruction attached like, “Press here” or “Use me, just don’t abuse me!” . It took me a long time to shift to the digital world, because I have always loved the thrill of going to get pictures developed.I love the anticipation while waiting to see if you captured the moment perfectly,not 2 seconds after the shot has been taken. There is a myesterious beauty to printed photos. Then, when they are still warm off the printer, taking them and frantically flippping through them in the car as soon as you leave the store. A smile, a laugh, or yikes, I like holding memories physically in your hands.
    I would love to gather all the cameras and drop them off with my new hubby. We’ll wait and eat ice cream, but before we go gather the pics, we;ll wipe our sticky hands off. Then, in the car, we’ll sit together smiling, raising our eyebrows with disdain. orlaughing. We are looking at our special day and messages from the eyes of our friends and family. It just seems like a special way to remember the day!

  21. Well, I’m hoping that we’ll get people to capture that side of them that they show to their groups (perhaps after a drink or two) that we won’t be able to see. I was going to include a camera at each table so that it takes the pressure off of the photographer to capture all the fun and antics of the evening. *crosses fingers*

  22. We’d love to win these cameras, since we have so many dreams about the pretty little elements of our day, from the flowers to the the decorating on the cake to the monograms on our favor cupcakes. We’ve had to cut out so many of the big things we wanted for our wedding, due to the fact that we both were laid off from our jobs a bunch of months ago, and we’re working not-fun little jobs to keep the bills paid. Our parents are helping as much as they can to help us make our wedding nice, but we’re really just not going to have the wedding we originally planned for when we first got engaged. But you know what? WE’RE STIL HAPPY! We know that what’s important is that we’re marrying each other, and all the big things are just nice things to have if we can have them. That’s why we’d really like to win these pretty cameras…I just fell in love with how pretty they are, and we know that our guests are going to have so much fun using them. They’ll capture the fun moments during the wedding that we miss, and in the end, we get pix that last so much longer than big floral centerpieces or a six tier cake!! We hope you’ll pick us! Thanks!!!
