A photo booth is a must-have item for all weddings. It provides a source of entertainment that’s unmatched. Your guests will love the ceremony, the music, and the food, and a photo booth is the best way to commemorate that. While a photographer will capture beautiful, posed moments, a place full of props is where your guests will feel truly comfortable expressing themselves.
Give your guests a night to remember – with photo evidence! There are so many great functions and things you can do with one of these machines, so check out these next few tips on how to get the most out of your wedding photo booth.
Create an Album
Ask the host company to print two photos every time. This way, your guests get a snapshot, and so do you. There’s a lot you can do with this to get the most out of this process. You can make it into a game and ask guests to leave comments on the back of one of the copies so that you can put it into a fun album. Plus, your partygoers will have an excellent image they can take home as a souvenir.
Give the Guests a Challenge
At each seating place you can have a photo booth challenge that each guest can finish throughout the night. Having tasks could force people to mingle more and help your tables get to know each other. Include things like, “get a picture with the bride’s mother in a silly hat,” or “take a picture with someone from table three.” They can be as personal or creative as you like. If your party is intimate, you can include inside jokes and special props. At the end of the night, you’ll have your guests place their photos and their task lists in an album. This game gets people laughing quick.
Add a Chalkboard
A relatively cheap and straightforward prop, a chalkboard is a great way to get all of your guests to hand-write you a message. Having it there will encourage your friends and family members to write something fun, creative, and sweet. You can set aside all of the pictures with the chalkboard messages and have an extra unique album.
Have a Theme Going
Having all your guests pose in a particular theme can make the experience even more entertaining. For example, if you have a specific movie that’s special to the two of you, make that the theme of your photo booth. Get specific props, ask your vendor for a corresponding background or green screen background, and tell all of your guests they have to act out different scenes from the movie. Depending on your personalities, you can choose a signature decade (like the 60’s, or the roaring ’20s), or a TV show that’s popular.
Professional photos take over a month before they’re delivered. On the other hand, you can take your photo booth prints home that night. Most people are thrilled when they wake up the next morning and realize they have a stack of photos to help them relieve the special moments. Playing a game or creating an activity for your booth makes those snapshots even better.
