We all know how stressful wedding planning can be. The multitude of decisions to make, budgeting and making sure that everything is perfect. Through all of the effort of wedding planning, the last thing you want is your guests to be bored at your wedding. You want people to remember your special day, and you want them to have a good time.
Over the last 10 years, photo booths have gained massive popularity in the weddings/event industry. You can find them at pretty much every type of event, and are considered a necessity by many. Who doesn’t love a good chuckle and a nice photo to stick on the fridge?
What was once considered a novelty is now being questioned as being cliche by some. Since photo booths are found at a large amount weddings nowadays, many brides wonder – is a photo booth still worth it?
Is a photobooth worth having at your wedding? We absolutely think it is! If you can’t make up your mind on whether to include a photo booth at your wedding, here’s 7 reasons why you should:
1.They’re super fun
You may think that photobooths at weddings are played out, but one thing is for sure, they’re super fun. Photo booths are the one instance where you see otherwise super serious people let their hair down and get wild in photos. it’s also where you can finally convince that person who “doesn’t take photos” to throw on a pair of shades and get in on the fun (especially with a couple of drinks in them!}).
The whole experience is created to ensure that everyone’s having a good time, from rushing back and forth to the prop table to make the countdown to the moment where you get your photo print and burst out in laughter when you see how it all turned out. If you want your wedding guests to have fun, a photo booth is definitely the way to go.
2. Great Keepsake for your guests
Let’s be honest. The last thing you want is to spend a bunch of time preparing cute little keepsakes for guests, just to have them thrown out or forgotten about a week later. Photobooth photos make the perrrfectt keepsakes! People are more likely to keep and treasure an amazing photo of themselves.
It doesn’t have to just be a strip of paper. You can most certainly jazz things up a bit. Fo example, get some cute frames, leaves them at each seat at the table and invite your guests to take a photo. Photo booths are great souce of entertainment and keepsake. Kill two birds with one stone!
3. They’re totally customizable
When you book your photo booth, you don’t have to have to use it as is – meaning, you can always customize the experience to make it yours! Here are some ideas:
- You can get custom props made – something fun ans quirky that’ll make for epic photos.
- You can opt for a custom backdrop or green screen (a night in Paris, perhaps?)
- Your print outs of course are customizable to match your wedding invites and stationery.
You can definitely create a truly unforgettable experience if you get creative with your photobooth! Just think outside of the box!
4. They’re a great ice breaker
Having some singles at your wedding? Or maybe some friends who may not know each other very well? A photo booth is a great way to break the ice and start conversations. The great thing about booths is that once one person starts using it, everyone else joins in. It’s perfect for getting the party started!
5. Fun for all ages
From younger children, to your grandparents, photo booths are something EVERYONE can enjoy. It’s fun to watch everyone have a blast together, and a photo booth never disappoints.
