After see the fun in this video im ready to take my silly face photo right now. We're going to cover a few of the pluses and minuses as well as a few of the questions you should ask if your thinking about having a photo booth.
As a quick introduction my name is Seth F and im a wedding service provider in NC. Ive asked venues and planners how they feel about photo booths at weddings.
Should we get a photo booth? Believe me, you’re not the only bride or groom who has asked this question when planning a wedding.You're looking at a limited budget and the costs of making your Vision unforgettable are getting steep. Plus, there’s a photographer and a videographer to take care of the wedding album. Is it too cheesy or a waste of money having a photo booth? Is it be truly worth having? Here are a few things to think about to help deiced if a photo booth plays a necessary role at your wedding.
photo strips over wedding favors
Instead of traditional favors that your guests will most likely throw away, photo strips are gifts that your guests can share online, frame, or the main idea, save somewhere (I currently have 5 on my fridge). You could even stick them into the guestbook and let the guests write notes.
Ice Breakers and a reason to socialize
No matter the size of the wedding, there’s always a need to break the ice especially during cocktails after the ceremony before the reception. Photo booths create a reason for people to gather around, talk, and interact together! Friends call other friends for a group photo; kids and parents pose together for a picture. The experience will always be a novelty no matter how many times they’ve been to a wedding with a booth everyone loves a picture that has their face in it.
The Down side to a booth
As I really looked and listened there really was no "down side" about photo booths. Any negative comments were about a particular company, we ran out of paper before time was up, or the biggest reason i could find why not to get a photo booth was if it just simply doesn't fit with the theme of your wedding.
Always ask: Is this a open booth or is there a curtain people go inside? Will you provide props with the booth or do provide them? Will i get a hard or digital copy of the photo strips? Will there be someone to run the booth and help my guest?
In conclusion you really just have to decide for you if a Photo Booth is right for your wedding.
