Single-use cameras that take the kind of picture you will keep forever are few and far between, but they remain a staple table dressing at weddings. I love the idea of encouraging guests to capture their favorite moments but there's something to be said for hiring a professional photographer to do all the hard work. What's your take on amateur photographers at weddings?
Welcome back to Wedding Season on the Sugar Network. Now that I've given you inspiration for creating your own wedding website, provided you with registry tips and imparted my ideas for geeky bachelorette parties it's finally time to plan the big day. Assuming you've found the right videoographer and photographer, the only last minute techie issue you have to tackle is what gadgets you will need on the big day.
If you have hired a professional photo and video team, I suggest you still stock the tables in the reception hall with inexpensive digital cameras or even the new Kodak Disposable Camera, which has recently gotten a makeover and looks like a small digital camera. The Kodak Disposables are inexpensive (seriously, they are $9.99 and available at food and drug stores) so you can purchase a couple dozen without breaking the bank. If you do opt for real digital or film cameras consider making one of the bridal party members the official "camera keeper" and have them pass them out to the dependable, bored looking crowd members. While the professional photos will likely be the ones you'll keep on your mantel for the rest of your life, there's no telling what candid moments your cousin Betty might capture.
