It is likely that you have seen countless photo booth pictures popping up on social media. So what is all the hype about? After all, photo booths have been around for decades, gracing the hallways of malls and hidden at the back of arcades. As the wedding industry continues to grow, and couples look for unique elements that will set their big day apart, photo booths have risen in popularity. Keep reading to learn why you need a photo booth at your reception, and how this simple element will take your guests by storm.
1. Entertainment for every age
One of the most difficult aspects of planning a wedding reception, is ensuring that there is entertainment suitable for every age group. With a photo booth, you can avoid hunting for and spending money on numerous avenues of amusement. It is a fantastic distraction for children, who will revisit it frequently – giving mom and dad a much needed break. For teenagers and adults, it is an icebreaker topic, perfect for discussion during cocktail hour. And at a wedding, it is a getaway for guests who like to take a break from the dance floor throughout the evening.
2. Shareable memorabilia
For the crowd who loves to share content on social media, a photo booth is a must. Nowadays, you can assume that this will be the majority of your guest list. A photo booth will also tie in perfectly if you have been utilizing a creative hashtag throughout your engagement. Our photo booth lets your guests text their photos immediately and upload the images to any social media platform of their choosing, and use your creative hashtag. Don’t try to pretend you wouldn’t love the extra attention!
3. To use as a wedding guest book
Some people opt to invest in a photo booth to create their guest book. If this kind of project is up your alley, purchase an album and fill it with the paper of your choosing. Once your guests snap and print a picture, they can place it in the album. If you purchase a sizeable album and paper, guests can even leave a sweet note alongside their names. Or, if you'd like for us to bring the book, we have some great ones to personalize! You can’t deny that images are going to be much more fun to show off than signatures.
4. Double as a wedding favor
Instead of wasting your money on something that guests will likely toss in the trash (ugh, do you know how many seed packets I've thrown away over the years?), gift them with high quality photographs. Former brides have constantly admitted to spending way too much on wedding favors, only for guests to leave them behind. A photo booth on the other hand will never go unused, and the photographs from which will be cherished. Now that photo prints are so uncommon, they are likely to make their way onto the fridge.
5. After hours photography
Unfortunately, there will come a point in the night when your photographer packs his bag and heads for the door. Having a photo booth will make his departure less stressful, knowing a photo op is still possible. Even better, improved technology means that you can still receive high quality photographs of the late night fun.
