5 Reasons You Absolutely Should Have A Photo Booth At Your Wedding

Photo strips make weddings funThis entry is from our Expert Guest series where wedding and honeymoon professionals share their best tips on creating memories that last a lifetime.

We know, we know, it’s another “top 5 reasons why” post, but these ones are the best kind especially if you’re hemming and hawing about whether or not to have a photo booth for your big day. Maybe you’ve never stepped foot inside a photo booth before? We’re going to assume you haven’t, because well if you had, you wouldn’t even need to question it!

Having had them at our own weddings, and enjoying them as a guest at friends’ weddings, we thought we’d share our thoughts on exactly why you absolutely should have a photo booth at your wedding! Or any other big celebration for that matter!

5 Reasons To Have A Photo Booth At Your Wedding

1. See your guests at their best.

No matter how discreet your photographer is, there are always a few people who will notice them snapping away and be restrained. But inside the photo booth, well anything can happen, I’ve only ever heard booming belly laughter coming out from behind those curtains, guests really do let go. It’s surprising what a few audacious props and the pressure of a prop change can do!

I don’t know about you, but those photos capturing laughter, silliness and raw enjoyment are some of my most precious.

2. It lightens up even the toughest of critics.

However much we love our family and friends, there will always be that person who needs coaxing out of their shell. A photo booth is an excellent way to get all ages joining in. Plus, the queue to join the fun will get your guests mingling. Using a banana for a pipe while wearing a pink feather boa and top hat is a damn good ice breaker right?

3. It’s instant.

Generally speaking, two copies of each session is printed, we highly recommend you set up a scrapbook, glue stick, and pen next to the booth, encouraging your guest to stick in a copy with a special message. Some photo booth companies offer this service as standard with the attendant ensuring all goes smoothly. But, if they don’t, put it on your to-do list now! It could also double up as your guest book!

Make a scrapbook with your photos

This is a great instant memento for them and for you, all of your nearest and dearest in one book having had a good ole’ time. Plus, your guests get to have a giggle at others’ pictures too. Be warned though, the longer the night goes on, the sillier the photos, the messier the messages, you might have some trouble deciphering. Nevertheless, you’ll have fun sifting through.

The morning after, guests asked us to bring the album down at breakfast, the fun continued with guests reminiscing about what a cracking night it was!

4. It’s good for flow.

The dinner is over, the room is being re-set; the band is setting up or playing to an empty dance floor; you’ve snuck away for some newlywed photos with your photographer and….with a photo booth, your guests are entertained!

Entertain your guests

At our weddings, without the photo booth, there would have been some time to fill. Guests being guests will naturally start to drift outside for a smoke, fresh air, or to stretch their legs after a 3-course meal; the photo booth not only fills the gaps in between changes and other happenings, it keeps the guests in the party vibe.

5. Bottom line, it’s fun and memorable for all!

    I’m so excited my broken Marriage has been restored.
    “We recently made up, even though it was difficult. It’s been more than a month now, and everything feels like it’s returned to normal. He has begun to treat me better, and it’s been a healing process for both of us. The nightmare that had lasted for almost 2 years before we broke up is finally over. It’s like we fell in love all over again! We’ve both put the past behind us, and are trying to move forward – and for the first time in a long time, the future looks a lot brighter.
    I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Unity! It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished.
    Thank you Dr Unity for saving my broken Marriage and brought my husband back to me!”.

    My husband encouraged us to come out of our shell and tell the world about the man behind the medicine that brought us back together after 7 years of separation. He was so astonished by the amazing spell by Dr. Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) that reunited our undying love for each other that proved we are sole mate. There has been a barrier between us, we regularly disagrees with each other, argue over unnecessary things and fight almost every week when we were still unmarried. We eventually separated for some months due unsolvable issues before he moved to Italy for 4 years.
    Though it might sound impossible to still get hold of your crush for that period of time without any means of communication. I always felt he took my heart away with him because I could not fall in love again and I could not stop thinking about him but I can not be with him. Doc Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) proved that nothing relating to love issues is impossible for him; doctor also proved that true love does not die after broking the barriers between us. Days after the spell, he returned unexpectedly to take me along with him. My happiest moment is seeing us live happily for a year without issues before getting married. We are still astonished by the good spiritual work that brought us together forever.
