Come on, vogue!


If you haven't guessed already, we're talking wedding cameras!

I'm cheaping out on our photography for the wedding for the following reasons:
1. I'm cheap.
2. Who is really going to look at them once they're taken? They'll probably just sit in an album buried under everything else stuffed in my closet.
3. Photographers can be sort of obnoxious at weddings.

Don't get me wrong - I do want to capture all of the fun, spontaneous moments at the wedding! And I really do want some fab pictures between the ceremony and the reception. I'm completely inspired by the gorgeous shots I've seen at The Wedding Cabaret blog!

So, the plan is to have a professional photographer during and after the wedding and then have our guests play photographers for the rest of the night!

So, the quest begins to find cheap and fabulous disposable cameras that fit our theme, pink and orange!

Simple and chic with its matte plastic finish, this camera looks durable and easy to operate (gotta keep the grannies in mind!). Basic 35 mm 27 exposure film, couldn't ask for anything more! Well, maybe I could...I mean, it's not quite the right shade of pink and there are no matching orange cameras. Wouldn't it be cute to have the same camera in the two different colors? Besides, it's a little out of our price range - $5.60 each if we order more than ten. :(

This is similar to the last one in terms of color, but instead of the plastic exterior, it has a cardstock exterior. And for $2.99/each, I'm loving it! Again, the negatives are that there are no matching orange cameras and it's not quite the right shade of pink. The search continues...

Now this one is cool! Not quite as delicate as the first two, but I kind of love that! Plus, it's reusable! Cha-ching! Ooh, and it's only $2.95 - cheapest camera yet! But wait, there's a problem...there's no matching pink camera! Ugh, back to the drawing board...

In love! It's my color - hot pink! Plus, there's free personalization for the next 9 days! The base price, $3.29 is a little steeper than the previous option, but it would only translate to a few extra bucks! Plus, it has a twin in orange!!!

See! The twin! Now, orangey is going to cost $3.99 each and it does not have free personalization. Ok, so maybe we won't have them personalize them. They had tacky fonts anyway! :) Besides, I can do my own personalization! Hello, rhinestones! (hehe, ok, now that would be tacky!)

So, I think I have my cameras picked out. This is exciting! I'm going to wait to purchase them because I'm not yet sure how many we'll need. It will all depend on the table layout!

Amen to going inexpensive! My future MIL is keeps bringing up the fact that she wants excellent photos of EVERYTHING and we'll be horribily disappointed if we don't. I feel the same way as you do with what happens to them afterwards, though.
