Weddings are the best place for a photo booth experience for a number of reasons. Firstly, weddings are usually long, whole-day events so a wedding photo booth is ideal for this sort of occasion. Secondly, a wedding is a great party experience so people are happy and in good spirits and so will want to have a great time! A photo booth isn’t a photo booth without props, however, and a wedding is a great opportunity for great props! Read on to discover 7 great wedding booth photo prop ideas.
If you’re struggling thinking of everything you need for your wedding party, hiring a photo booth can check many boxes off your list. Read on to find the 6 reasons why having a photo booth for your big day is a great idea!
1. Entertainment for guests of all ages
Once the “I Do’s” are shared, weddings tend to be long events for your guests so they’ll need things to do to keep them entertained in between the highlights. A photo booth is a great idea for a wedding with any number and age of guests. Young kids will love being silly in front of the camera and having fun with props, whilst the adults will love trying something a bit different! It’s also a great activity for guests when there’s downtime during the event.
2. Wedding Favors
It’s often tricky to decide on the best wedding favors for your guests. It’s hard to find something that is unique that everyone will appreciate. With a wedding photo booth, your guests can have fun and produce their own souvenir from the event!
3. Guest Book
In a similar way to wedding favors, a photo booth can be used as a unique way of creating a guest book. Guests can enter the booth and get 2 copies of their picture – one can be for them to keep and the other can be for them to stick in your guest book next to their message. Not only will you have a memory of who attended your wedding, but you’ll have a souvenir of exactly what they looked like when you got wed! A photo guest book will have you reminiscing about your wonderful wedding day for years to come and will be something to show your grandchildren one day!
As we’ve already mentioned, a photo booth checks lots of boxes but the
most important one is that it creates memories. After all, you want to be able
to remember your wedding forever right? A photo booth creates heaps of fun
memories. And, if ever the memories do start to fade, you’ve got the photos to
look back on!
Let’s face it, it will be weeks if not months before your official wedding photos are ready! A photo booth gives you instant access to pictures right then and there! With your photo booth prints, you will have something to look at and reminisce with right on the spot!
6. Ice Breaker
Our final reason for hiring a photo booth at your wedding is that it’s a great ice breaker. This is a time in your life when everyone you love and care about is in the same place. When two families join like in a wedding, there are many guests from either side that have never met but who are equally important in your lives. A photo booth is a great way to get your guests to meet and get to know each other a little bit!
Once you’ve decided that you need a photo booth at your wedding, the hard part starts – which type of photo booth do you go for?!
Most people these days start planning their wedding plenty of time in advance. There are many reasons why you should do this. Often, it’s because venues get booked up quickly, and it’s also to do with how much needs to be organized. Whatever the length of time before your wedding, our essential checklist will cover everything you need in order for your big day to run smoothly. We’ve also added in some different ideas that you may not have thought of!
This past weekend, Picture Perfect Photobooth Rentals was invited back to Top of the Market Banquet Center for Sarah and Chad’s wedding reception. I love bringing the photo booth here! Portable photo booths can have their issues, and from start to finish, Top of the Market makes it a breeze! The owners transformed this retired warehouse, located close to Downtown Dayton, into a gorgeous event center for weddings, birthday parties, and so much more. I have no trouble getting the photo booth cart up the ramps or through the doors, as the venue is easily accessible on both sides of the building.
This weekend Picture Perfect was invited back to Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, located right here, in Dayton, Ohio. If you want an out-of- the-world experience, this place is what you’re looking for! The beautiful bride and groom were wed under the stars of Boonshoft’s Planetarium. Their guests later convened for dinner with a projection of our Earth as the room’s centerpiece. With a venue as stellar as this, it’s only fitting to bring an equally amazing photo booth! Good thing they called Picture Perfect. The photo booth was up and running in no time! They had requested Picture Perfect’s open air booth style with a silver backdrop. I stood back to marvel at how well our booth meshed with the layout and look of the room.
