Tying the Knot in a Meaningful and Memorable Way (Without Losing Our Savings or Sanity)

Our Photographic Experiment

So far, the photography experiment is working out. Instead of spending thousands on a "real" photographer (our budget, after all, was only $2,000), we decided to ask three of our talented friends to do the duties.

Plus, we sent all guests a post-wedding follow-up e-mail to ask them to upload their photos to a centralized flickr account (i.e., I gave everyone the username and password).

Thus far, the only downside (knock on wood) has been that some goofballs are messing with our welcome message. They changed it from "Of a Feather" to "Sawubona" (sorry, Grandma and Grandpa).

I guess it's a small price to pay for 1,641 photos (so far!).

Five minutes later: it's now up to 1,675!

[Editor's Note: I just learned that "Sawubona" is a Zulu greeting that flickr cycles through. I'm an idiot!]

Have you run into any problems with there being too many photos uploaded? Or did you upgrade to a Pro-Account?

I did upgrade to the pro-account, so I haven't had to worry at all! Definitely let me know if you have more questions.

This is a great idea that I am eager to try out for our pre-wedding, wedding and reception photos. I do have one question though. I already have a Flickr account for my photography. Do you know of a possibility where I can add a second "account" to my existing Flickr account??

Thanks for sharing a great idea!
