Thanks to the digital age of social media and smartphones, everyone seems to love taking selfies and posting pics on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram almost immediately after taking them! Whenever you have a special moment, memory or even meal that you want to cherish and share, a quick photo and a few keystrokes allow you to share those moments with the rest of your world filled with friends, family members and online acquaintances!
We are always taking fun photos of ourselves and our friends. Many people are even eager to create and share hashtags with their photos to collaborate their online posts with others who use the same hashtag! This happens at almost every type of special occasion – from date nights and wedding proposals to “Fight Night” parties and wedding receptions! Traditional photographers are still popular choice for wedding album selections. However, for quick and easy photos that are immediately ready while the moment is still fresh, you have the increasingly popular Photo Booth option!
EVERY Wedding Needs a Photo Booth!
The best way to get those fun photos of your wedding guests is to have a photo booth ready and waiting for them. Who doesn’t love a great photo booth? Even if you do not like having pictures taken of you, the amount of fun that you can have with your friends and family inside of a photo booth makes these moments exceptional and exciting!
Think about the amount of fun people have had inside of photo booths at weddings you have attended in the past. Now, imagine your attendees being able to enjoy the same fun and exciting experience at the wedding you are planning!
Here are the top 3 reasons why you should have a photo booth at your wedding:
1) They Serve as Great Entertainment!
One of the top reasons to have a photo booth is to entertain your guests. Keep in mind that even the most action-packed wedding receptions will still have moments of “dead air” and downtime when nothing “spectacular” is happening. Perhaps you want to make sure everyone has plenty of time to eat dinner even though a growing number of people have already finished. Maybe you still have a considerable amount of time before the next performance, toast, slideshow presentation, memorable dance or cake cutting. Having a photo booth will allow you to maintain engagement and activity – giving your guests something to do and enjoy even when you do not have anything scheduled at that exact moment.
For instance, most weddings usually have the formal wedding photos taken immediately after the ceremony even though the wedding guests are encouraged to head to the reception venue immediately after the ceremony ends. There is a considerable amount of downtime between that moment and the point when the guests of honor arrive. Instead of concerning yourself with what the guests are going to do in the meantime, a photo booth will keep them busy and complement whatever ambient music you have playing in the background or appetizing snacks you have served on the tables.
2) They Make Great Memories!
Most modern photo booths come with the integrated ability to print out multiple copies of photos. This ensures that not only will the bride and groom get copies of the pictures, but the guests will be able to walk away with copies of their photos themselves! There are even some popular photo booth companies that provide the option of creating a photo guestbook consisting of the photos that were captured within the booth – creating a memorable keepsake that the bride and groom can cherish along with their traditional wedding photos for years and years! They will undoubtedly enjoy taking strolls down Memory Lane as they review all of the photo booth pictures to remind themselves of how much fun their wedding guests had on their special day!
3) They are FUN!
Obviously, wedding photo booths are fun! The best thing about them is that they are great for all ages! From young kids to elderly grandparents, there are not very many people who do not enjoy spending quality time inside of a photo booth alongside the people they care most about in the world.
