Fuji Instax 210 Wide instant camera - Perfect for Wedding Guestbooks

Guestbooks are a common sight at a Wedding Reception where guests can leave notes for the happy couple. An alternative to having a traditional guestbook is to use an instant camera.

My preference of instant camera is the Fuji Instax 210 Wide.

The Fuji Instax 210 Wide is a camera, much like an old Polaroid, which produces instant prints on 3.4" x 4.3" film. The actual image measures a little smaller at 2.4" x 3.9", this leaves a small white border at the bottom of the print.

This white space can be used by guests to write a short note using marker pen. I find that Sharpie Fine Permanent Markers work best as they do not smudge. Alternatively you can mount the whole print in a scrapbook and write a message on the scrapbook page itself. If you choose the scrapbook option, you will also need Photo Corners to mount the Instax prints to the pages.

The cost of the Instax prints hovers around £1. I buy my prints from amazon and find the cost of 20 prints can range between £14-£20 depending on the day! 

The cost of the Instax 210 Wide instant camera retails for around £59.99.
