Every wedding has its own style and every bride and groom have their own vision, but one thing has become universally essential in every wedding: The Photo Booth. Photo booths have become a necessity for any modern day wedding. But the photo booth isn't just something for a quick fun during the reception. A photo booth is so much more!
Here are 5 Reasons Every Wedding Needs a Photo Booth
Help The Crowd to Loosen up and Have Fun!
When guests first arrive at the reception (or cocktail hour) of your event, they are still a little reserved. They just witnessed a beautiful long ceremony and are probably a little emotional. The photo booth is a great way to get people to loosen up. While the wedding photographer is very important, their precise angles for every shot are just not as welcoming as taking some crazy pics at the photo booth. Something about taking a picture with silly props and funny signs or even seeing friends and relatives do it makes you feel at ease. The photo booth or picture station is a great way to set the tone for a fun night even from early on!
Keeps The Party Going
Once the party gets going (and the liquor gets flowin') the guests (and bride and groom) get more fun and creative with the pictures. These are usually the best shots of the night. This the point when the party livens up and the spectators get the picture-takers really amp up with funny suggestions (and the occasional photo bomb). Just about every picture gets a good laugh or sparks an idea for an even better one. The best part is seeing the more "conservative" family members let loose for the pictures. No one throws up a peace sign with duckface and funny glasses quite like Grandma!
Create a Buzz all over Social Media
When finding a photo booth, green screen, video or slo-mo booth, be sure to find a vendor that offers social media integration. Having a social media station allows your guests to instantly share the photos they take to their email, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so your wedding's hashtag and photo booth photos will be the buzz on everybody's feed. Onsite social media sharing lets everyone get a crisp hi-resolution copy of their awesome pictures to share right away. This beats taking a blurry picture on their phone with bad lighting and the reflection of their flash covering half of the great shots. And lets be honest, you spend way too much time making everything perfect to have your big day represented online by a messy cell phone pic. Before the night is over, all of your friends and your friends' friends will be talking about the awesome photo booth shots!
Great, Personalized Keepsake
You can give your wedding guests a candle with your names or even a seashell with a cute saying to remember your wedding, but nothing is more likely to be saved than a picture of themselves in coke bottle glasses, a jester hat, a pink boa and a sign that says "I Came For The Beer." So unless you are giving away puppies, photo booth pictures are the ultimate take-home gift for any wedding!
Memories of a Great Night
Even after the party is done, the venue is cleared and honeymoon is over. Tons of your guests will have the print from the photo booth at your wedding hanging on their fridge, posted in their locker or thumbtacked on their cubicle as a constant reminder of the great time they had. And you have a scrapbook or digital copies to remind you of the wonderful time that everyone (including you and your spouse) had on your Special day!
