When you put disposable cameras in the center of tables at a wedding put a small "request" note on each table asking that the first few photos taken be of all the guests at that table. It serves as a nice record of all those who came to celebrate your special day. Also, copies of the photos could be included in the thank you cards mailed out to guests if you liked.
My wife and I did the disposable camera thing at our wedding a few years ago. I was leaning against the idea, but she wanted to do it. We put one on each table, and we only got a few nice shots out of about 200, most of the shots came out bad!. we also had notes on the tables and still did not get all the cameras back!
One thing to check out beforehand: Our professional photographer had already set up lighting and flashes for his use. Unfortunately, every time one of the disposable camera flashes went off, it tripped his flashes, and the whole array would light up. Great for the disposables since they have bad lighting, but not great for the photographer, since it was draining his batteries. He had to keep running around changing them throughout the reception.
If you're going to put the disposable cameras out, be sure and warn your photographer beforehand, so he can be prepared.
