Could you tell me if there is a poem you can put with the disposable cameras as a way of telling guests to use them?


There are several poems suitable for use with our Disposable Cameras. Here is a selection for you to choose from:

I’m your camera – so have some fun,
You’ll make our album a special one!
Snap away as best you’re able,
Then drop me off at the gift table!

Here’s a camera
Please use it a lot,
To take pictures of
What the photographer will not.
The flash is required
Because it is night.
If you don’t use it,
The photo’s won’t come out right.

Hold the front switch over
‘Til the little light flutters.
You’re all ready now,
So please press the shutter.
The perfect distance
Is four to ten feet.
Any nearer or farther
Will be your defeat.
At the end of the evening
With all film exposed,
Return to the best man,
Who’ll develop the photos.

Take this camera and have some fun
Get some pictures of everyone!
Maybe you’ll see something
We didn’t see
That we can keep as a memory!
Thank you for sharing
This special day with us.

To celebrate this special day,
Pick a camera and really play.
Leave it on the table when you are through,
So [bride’s name] and [groom’s name] can develop the photo’s taken by you.

This camera’s been provided so
We’ll have pictures of people we know.
Take snaps, if you’re able
Of friends on your table
And leave it behind when you go!

Don’t be daft,
Give us all a laugh
By snapping a shot
And capturing the lot:
The debuncle of an uncle
Who was a messy pig;
The old debutante aunt
With her wonky wig;
A bride with no shoes
Her father having a snooze.
Please make our day
And snap away.
