One-time use camcorders on each table at reception?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I saw this on the Knot of placing one-time use digital camcorders on each table at the reception ~ much like the disposable camera practice. Each camcorder holds about 20 minutes of footage, and after you've collected them you send them to the manufacturer and they send you an edited DVD. Sounds pretty cool, and surprisingly it's not too expensive $100 for 5 cameras!

 

I am definitely getting a videographer to document our day, but I guess this a unique way to capture the guests' point of view and it seems like a great way to document guest reactions and personal well wishes during the reception.

 

Have any brides or brides-to-be tried this out? And if so, how was the quality of the video? Do you think it's worth ithuh.gif?

That sounds like a cool idea but I guess my only thought is that I would have to sit through a lot of shaky random video stuff that guests start taping when they are drinking. Especially since it's disposable I wonder about the quality of video and sound. It sounds like a cool thing but I personally would go without if I was having a pro videographer. When we went down for a site visit recently we video taped a lot and I was so nauseous watching it cause even though we have a super top of the line camera I was moving it all over the place. Just something to think about. I think you have a better chance of getting fun guests stuff with disposable cameras.

Hahaha, you ladies are right ~ I guess you kinda take the risk of leaving it in the hands of someone else and their "creative vision" hahaha smile117.gif. Either way, I would definitely still get a professional videographer, I just kinda thought it sounded like a cool idea that would capture another dimension of the wedding idea.gif

This is a great idea but i would be too worried what i got in the end. I am really worried about the cameras we are giving out and the ability to print those photos!

This reminds me of something, a friend of mine got married 4 years ago and she put disposable cameras on every table. One of the cameras contained only pictures of women's clevage. It was fun trying to figure out whose were whose :)

i think its such a cute idea - but knowing my FI's friends, i'd end up with quasi-porno videos. I would totally do this though for the actual ceremony and ask guests seated in different places to take video. If I only had some extra money now haha

I think its a good idea but for me a def no no - half of my guests are squaddies and i dread to think what they would do with them - I've been at parties where all they have done all night is take pics under girls skirts with their cameras lol you end up pointing them out for them after a while lmao

Although I'm having a great photog at my wedding, I know she won't be able to be everywhere at once, so I'm def. gonna do the disposable camera thing too and hope for the best!! Maybe putting table numbers on the cameras will at least let you know who may have took the pics in case you get some "surprise pics". lol

smile120.gif that's hilarious! Luckily our guest list is tight with only very close family and friends (still 100 peeps, crazy huh?) And to be honest I can't think of anyone who would bless us with such "attractive" photos. LMAO. But then again, getting drunk at a wedding does strange things to people...hmmmmm...

LMAO at the idea of wedding reception soft porn. That's a nice twist to the average wedding day video coverage. lol. =) But you're right, having them at the ceremony sounds like a great idea, that def. might be an option if I decide to try this out. =) And Maura, I totally feel you on the extra money issue. FI is constantly questioning the growing costs for all my DIY projects and inspiratins - the need to make OOT bags, ceremony program fans, etc., and when I brought up hanging name cards on starfish he looked at me like I was freaking nuts! <sigh>

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
