Wedding Day Photo Booths – From "I Do" to "I Remember"

By 24th July 2015Articles

If there is one day that you want to remember forever, it is your wedding day. You spend months if not years planning this one day, and when it is over you will want to go back in time so you can relive it all over again. Even if things don’t go exactly as you planned, it will remain one of the most important days of your life.

Most people hire videographers and photographers to capture their wedding day, but those services do not capture the true magic of the day. The magic comes from your guests. They have loved and supported you throughout your lifetime, and now they will come together to share tears of happiness as you walk down the aisle and say “I do” to the love of your life. They are just as important as the elaborate cake, the table centerpieces, and the flowers.

A photo booth hire will allow your guests to take center stage at your wedding. They can climb into the booth alone to record sentimental videos that you will later receive compiled onto one DVD for your enjoyment. They can also climb into the booth in small groups of two to six people, posing for fun pictures that will later be compiled into an album for your memories. The best booths also expand so you can take large group photos.

You can still have a photographer and videographer to capture your wedding ceremony and all the fun at the reception. The photo booth is more of an opportunity for your guests to contribute to your wedding in a sentimental and fun manner.

The perfectly posed pictures captured by your photographer will hold a special place in your heart forever, but the images that your guests capture in the booth will serve as heartwarming memories that remind you why your big day was so special. These images will capture the personality and spirit of every guest at your wedding.

Incorporating the Photo Booth

Everyone will want to get into the photo booth once guests realize it is there, so make sure there is plenty of opportunity for everyone to take their turn. One way to incorporate the booth is to place it right at the entrance of the reception hall. If your reception is being held right after the wedding ceremony, guests will have some time to wait while the wedding party takes pictures with the photographer. This time can easily be filled with time in the photo booth.

All of your guests may not get through the line for the photo booth before wedding party pictures are over and you make your grand entrance to the reception, but there will be time for them to finish up later in the reception. Guests should be asked to step out of line to watch your entrance and perhaps eat, then they should be free to dance and live it up while going into the booth in different groups to record video messages and snap pictures.

You may also choose to create a door prize for the silliest picture snapped in the booth. This encourages all of your guests to go into the booth. It also encourages them to think creatively when taking their pictures, so you have better memories to look back at later on.

Your wedding day is all about the “I do,” but the photo booth will make the “I remember” that comes years later much easier.
