There is an ideal wedding that every couple preparing for the wedding day has in mind. You as the bride will most probably work tirelessly to ensure that every meticulous detail goes according to plan on the big day. So as the day approaches, you keep checking off the list. You have the guest list, your cake, the rings, the maids and groomsmen, and of course your groom, wedding dress and jewelry, among the long list of must-haves you had in mind.
So far so good. You have everything covered, right? Well, not quite. One must-have is missing from that list. A photo booth. For our wedding we rented the popular InstaStyle Photo Booth and it was the hit of the reception. And in case you are wondering about the practicality of having a photo booth on your big day, here are some of the reasons why you cannot go wrong with this option;
• Creating memorable moments – Guests to your wedding will gladly take those photos where they stand angled in a particular direction and pause for the camera. But how about you throw a mix into this traditional and conventional way and introduce a photo booth? It will allow them to take photos with the props available; in fact it will be difficult to keep a straight face while wearing those fake ears and a sombrero. Both the young and the old will have some good fun as they pose and in the process also create memorable photos for your wedding album.
• Filling in waiting time – After saying your vows, you will highly likely go for a photo shoot with the groom and bridal team. In the process of waiting for you to get back, the guests can fill up this time by taking some fun photo booth shots. This way, you and your bridal team will not be under pressure to get back to the reception urgently. Your guests will also keep any boredom away as they wait for your return.
• Providing fun moments for everyone – In addition to dancing and the interaction that goes on in a wedding, photos taken in photo booth can be a lot of fun. It can literally add some spice to the celebrations as the guests let lose; both the young and the old can have fun while taking silly photos of themselves.
• Creating a scrap book – Some of the providers of photo booth services provide the couple with a scrap book. After the photos are taken, then two copies are produced; whereby the couple remains with one copy while the other person carries a souvenir item of the second copy home. Guests can even decide to add personalized messages for the couple as they take the photo. This way, the couple will get to keep those treasured moments taken on their wedding day with their guests.
Preferably, make this experience even better by having a video inclusive as part of the photo booth package. You will be able to keep and treasure both still photos and videos of your guests having fun on your wedding day. Am sure you can create a wonderful experience by adding this one thing to your wedding list; so go on, make the inclusion and have turn up the fun!
