Hey Shutterbug!

Just remembered another thing I had to take care of... Wedding Photo Sharing Cards. Which are really great way to ask your wedding guests to share their photos of your wedding day with you and each other. 

I went on and used their business cards as templates for my photos sharing cards.

I "borrowed" some photos of the the cameras they sell at Urban Outfitters for the front of the cards... 

an example of 4 of the 8 cards that I created

I used those pictures because those cameras were what we received as presents for our co-ed wedding shower and we plan to use those cameras at the wedding. 

And then on the back of the card I asked/begged our guests to upload their photos to a photobucket account that I created specially for the wedding...

The business cards come 50 for around $22, I ordered 2 sets and spent around $55 for them! Not bad considering that these can help us get a whole lot of free photography! :)

Okay, can I just say this is AMAZING!!! I can't believe how far things have come in just 8 years! We had the "disposable cameras on each table" thing at the reception, which was all the rage, BACK THEN. Gosh, I sound like an old granny saying that. Only, come to find out only 1 camera was used by a guest intelligent enough to use the flash. INDOORS. Duh! So I have 15 or 20 camera's worth of dark, grainy prints, which would be great if you could see the actual people in them!

You will have such better results this way! I can't wait to see ALL the pictures! And I promise to add lots myself!

oh I expect to have LOTS of michelle uploaded photos! :) I can't wait!!!!

Yeah, technology man, it's amazing. I remember disposable cameras on the tables! I did that for my Sweet 16. The ones that actually DID get left behind (and not taken by people at the table) were all underdeveloped and most of them were stupid pictures of kids flicking off the camera- hey, we were 15 and 16 at the time.
