I think the most valuable wedding tip is to go digital vs disposable.  For 2 main reasons:  easy sharing, "takes fifteen seconds and costs zero dollars" and better photos, "you get digital wedding pictures from high-quality 5.3 megapixel cameras"!


I would LOVE to have this option at my wedding.

I like the cost cutting idea . . ."With the economy the way it is, every bride and groom is looking for ways to reduce the cost of their wedding. These little known insider secrets will cut your wedding budget by $5,000 to $15,000 without making you look cheap."

I like the DIY Wedding Photography Tip#2:  Use a Shot-List.  If you're skipping out on a professional photographer and/or are lucky enough to have photo-skilled friends, then before everyone gets lost in the moment, it would really be helpful if someone's keeping track of important shots that need to be taken.  That way no time is wasted and you can be sure that what you want/need will be in there.


I will be discussing this with my photographer friend for my wedding.

I think this is valuable due to your photogrpaher not being to catch everything that goes on at each individual table and etc. Also, photographers are so expensive right now and this is a cost effective way to get lots of pictures for a reasonable price.  In addition you get to see how your guest see the wedding utilizing the camera rental photo package. I love it!!!

I never really thought out the possibility that we could be everywhere during our wedding!  This statement says it all for me...


"You have fifty to three hundred of the people most dear to your heart full of great food, free drinks, and joy, and now you want to capture that energy...this is a completely different world than traditional wedding photography."


Having a visual memory of the joy, fun, and celebration on everyone's face is definately important to me. My favorite and most helpful tip is....


"Don't discriminate! We’re talking pictures of everything from the karaoke the day before, to pictures of the bowling event the day after; it’s all part of your wedding weekend and worth remembering."


I hope to have cameras everywhere!

I like tip #12-- we spend so much time preparing for the wedding any extra convenience is much appreciated!


12. More ConvenientDisposable Cameras: You drive to the store to buy them. Then you take them back to the store to get developed. Then you go back to pick up the prints. Then you physically mail the prints to your guests. This takes hours.


Digital Wedding Cameras: You order online. Then the cameras are delivered to you and you ship them back in a prepaid mailing case. Then you forward the email invite to your photo sharing and video sharing website to your guest list. This takes minutes.

Definitely:


 


Disposable Cameras: You share your wedding photos by paying for duplicates and postage, and then mailing all of the photos out. This can easily take hours and cost hundreds of dollars.

7. Fun Videos! As a new Mr and Mrs, I would love to kick back and relax in our living room and watch the great videos our guests took over the course of our wedding celebration. I've been told time and time again: The day goes by so fast! This is a great way to not only remember the day but catch the moments you didn't see! What a fantastic idea!

Save Money: Disposable Cameras: You have to buy a lot of cameras, pay to develop all of the pictures, pay for duplicates and triplicates of all the pictures, and pay to mail all of the pictures to your guests.


Not only do I hate the thought of buying so many disposable items for our wedding, but digital cameras offer higher quality results!

This is a genius way to capture the most important day of (ladies) life. Watching Ten Times More Wedding Reception Pictures for Ten Times Less is the best tip. If you don't have time to read through all the tips, then just click and watch. It's short, but very informative.

2. Save Money


Disposable Cameras: You have to buy a lot of cameras, pay to develop all of the pictures, pay for duplicates and triplicates of all the pictures, and pay to mail all of the pictures to your guests. This costs $500 to $1,000 depending on how many disposable cameras you buy and how many prints you get developed.


Digital Wedding Cameras: You buy an all inclusive digital camera rental package. This costs $495 and includes your friends and family downloading and printing as many of your wedding photos from your photo sharing website as they would like.


Just a few months ago there was a interesting thread here on PW regarding disposbale cameras.I was planning to buy disposable cameras until I read the thread.I had never took into account how much money would be involved with buying the cameras plus all the money you dish out with the cost of development.When I came across this giveaway and read into it I was like wow what a great idea.Less cost and quality pictures.What a great idea.Totally a good invention and concept.Wish I would of thought of doing this lol. With this great idea everyone gets a camera and you can't go wrong with the amazing picture quality.After the wedding you will be so happy with tons of great pictures to look back on.We know wedding photography is the most important thing in a wedding.I mean in my book it is.A brides biggest fear is wondering how the pictures will turn out.Thanks for this amazing giveaway.I would love to win but you all are winners for coming up with such a cool affordable deal.Yay!

8. Eco-Friendly


Disposable Cameras: You dispose of them and a lot of the photos. This means that a lot is wasted


Digital Wedding Cameras: You reuse everything and only print the best photos. This means that nothing is wasted.

This is awesome and sounds really fun for the guest. I would love to win this package giveaway. Before planning my wedding we thought about a photobooth but this seems so much better. Tip 2: Use a Shot List is great. We want to make sure that we capture all the special moments of our family and friends. Never miss a moment. Tip 4: Action shots are the best. Thanks!

I think the biggest advantage of these cameras is for Tip #4.  Take Candid Action Shots.  I know that there will be so many things going on at my wedding that I won't be able to witness myself.  We plan to throw a party that is full of energy, and I think these cameras will be great at capturing all those many in-the-moment shots and emotions.

I think the most valuable tip for me would be


DIY Wedding Photography Tip 2: Use a ‘Shot List


There are so many things that you want to remember about your wedding day that it's easy for things to get lost in the shuffle, and then you don't have that picture of the first kiss, or you getting ready, or placing your veil just so-those things that you want pictures of for when you're older and paging through your album. Those are precious photographs-memories that you will cherish forever. Those are important, and it's those things that you want to remember. The shot lists remind people that you want photos of family, or a picture under the tree by the chapel, so that you don't forget. Yes, you can get beautiful candids without a shot list...but if you want that one kiss in the shadows of the doorway, with the ivy overhead? In the hustle and bustle of wedding day excitement, you might forget, but the person holding the shot list will not-and you will see that in 20, 30, 40, or 50 years, on your anniversary, or whenever, for the rest of your life and remember that moment, and how wonderful and magical that day was. That's why it's important. A picture can say a thousand words-the special ones, though, can say so much more. THAT is why that is the most important tip for me.

My favorite was #2 the Shot List. On your wedding day you get so caught up in the moment that you can forget big things like important pictures. I am combining several other brides shot lists to make my own. At the end of the wedding the pictures are the only things you get to keep (besides your husband:) Make sure that you get all of those pictures.
