There’s a new photo sharing site on the web, The Wedding Lens.
The Wedding Lens is a photo sharing site specifically designed for weddings. They are relatively new and are trying to help couples make their weddings a bit greener while collecting their photo memories.
The Wedding Lens is meant to be used as a replacement for the plastic disposable wedding cameras that so many people have been using at weddings over the years.
Disposable cameras are not very “green”, even the ones that are recyclable or reusable need plastic to be made and they take up a lot of resources that are needed to ship them back and forth and to develop the photos. Plus all of the photos need to be printed, many of which end up being crappy photos not worth the ink and paper they are printed on. That all adds up to a lot of waste. But with The Wedding Lens you don’t have to worry about that.
Here’s how the The Wedding Lens works:
- The bride and groom can customize a FREE or premium ($49.95) album with their relevant details, and then upload the email addresses of all their guests.
- About a week before the wedding, The Wedding Lens sends the guests an email encouraging them to bring a digital camera to the wedding and take a lot of photos.
- The day after the wedding The Wedding Lens sends out another email reminding them to upload all of the cool photos they took of the bride and groom to their album. Average albums get about 500 to 600 photos and some get as many as 1200.
- After the couple receives all the photos they can choose which ones to keep, which ones to print and they have the option of creating photo albums full of their wedding memories on an archival quality DVD.
All in all it’s a very green way to organize and store your wedding memories, all for under $50.
