The Best Instant Cameras to Buy for a Wedding Polaroid Guest Book 

Having a Polaroid guestbook at your wedding is one of the best creative, yet affordable ways to save memories that’ll last forever from your loved ones! Below are different camera brands, films, and an estimated cost to get this idea going for your wedding date.

The best camera we recommend is the Polaroid Now+Gen 2 Starter Set, the film size is 3.1” x 3.1”. This Polaroid gives the photos a vintage feel, while the camera has very modern capabilities. The camera can connect wirelessly via Bluetooth to your smartphone so you can control the camera's functions and includes five special effect camera filters. A set including the camera and 2 Color I-type films, costs $149.99. Each film cartridge includes 8 exposures, but you can purchase additional packs for $16.99, 3 packs for $44.99, or 5 packs for $71.99.

A more budget-friendly Polaroid camera would be the Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 with a print size of 2” x 3”. This polaroid makes it super easy to operate for the guests since you only need to twist the lens to turn it on and off. It operates on 2 AA batteries and has automatic exposure, flash control, plus a built-in selfie mirror. Its current value is $69.99 and includes a hand strap, a user manual, and 2 AA batteries. Although this purchase doesn't include any instant film, you can purchase a set of 20 exposures for $19.99 or 60 exposures for $44.99.

Lastly, a super high-quality hybrid instant camera that fits in your pocket would be the Fujifilm Instax Mini Evo which combines the capabilities of a digital camera with that of an instant one and has a print size of 2”x3.” It has 10 lens effects and 10 film effect options to create the exact vision you want in a photo, a built-in selfie mirror, and can save every capture on your smartphone. This high-quality camera includes one hand strap and one Lithium-Ion battery. Its current value is $199.99. The film is sold separately for a value of $19.99 for 20 exposures, and $44.99 for 60 exposures.

You might want to consider buying an extra memory card and film to avoid running out during the wedding.
