If you seek a fun activity for your wedding reception, then consider a photo booth. It gives guests a break from the standard food assortment and dancing. Plus, it offers a unique, personalized souvenir that guests will have forever to remind them of your wedding reception.
Here are seven tips to ensure a photo booth will be a great success at your reception.
- Pick A Photo Booth That’s Right for Your Wedding
There is an array of booth structures to pick from, and the term “photo booth” can be used to describe anything from a backdrop and professional photographer to actual private or semi-private physical booths. So, so don’t be shy to ask questions, and look carefully at what’s being offered by a photo booth service.
- Play Off Your Theme
Another consideration is the atmosphere, setting, and ambiance of your reception. If you’re having a formal, black-tie affair, using silly props can keep the atmosphere lively. Plus, it’s always fun to see your guests in tuxes and fake mustaches with emoji hats. That’s a memory you’ll want to keep. Or, if your taste is the opposite, you can pick a simple backdrop with your favorite color and your names or initials. Your wedding photo booth is super customizable.
- Consider What Features You’d Like in The Photo Booth
You know your guests the best, so pick options that they’ll like. Do you know your friends are going to love picking out different backgrounds? You can always go for a photo booth option that gives you more of those. Or if your friends are the tech-savvy type, maybe they’d love a photo booth that works with an app. You can also choose the props, which gets to be fun if you’re creative. If you and your significant other love a particular place or TV show, you can always provide the themed props and let your friends and family share the fun with you!
- Consider Where You’ll Place a Photo Booth
Ask your venue where most couples place their photo booths. You’ll have to consider changing up your photo booth depending on your surroundings. An outdoor wedding may not have easy access to outlets, which would change up the type of photo booth you need. Or if there’s limited space, you might want to go with a smaller structure.
- Figure Out What You Want
Ask yourself a few critical questions. Do you want guests to stand, sit, or have both options? How many people can the booth accommodate for group photos; could all the bridesmaids and groomsmen, for example, fit in for a group picture? Is the background customizable before or after? Can guests choose different backgrounds or is it one standard for all photos?
- Finding a Rental Agreement That Works
You’ll need to tell the photo booth company what time or time span you’ll need the photo booth for. You can have it there from beginning to end, or you can choose to have them set it up at the end of the night, once everyone’s had some food and drink and is ready to party. Once you tell the photo booth company precisely what you want, they’ll help find a package to accommodate you.
- Ask How the Final Product Will Be Received
You’ll want to know how and when you and your guests will receive the final images. You can have a photo booth that prints out a few copies right away. If you want copies of all your guests’ photos, you can ask the company to print an extra for you, every time your guests snap a photo. That way, you’ll have some great wedding pictures to take home as you wait for the photographer to send you your portraits.
