Wedding ideas: Photo booth at your wedding!

One of the big trends from the last few years is a photo booth at weddings!
But, what’s a photo booth?

A photo booth is a small area or booth setup at your wedding reception in a small corner. Guests can then head over and dress up in silly hats, glasses, feather boas.

Wedding photo booths are a great way to capture fun, goofy, and creative photos of your guests.

With the rise in popularity for wedding photo booths there are many different aspects to consider before deciding if you should add one at your wedding or what type of photo booth you want.

Wedding photo booths are also a great way to eliminate placing disposable cameras on the guests tables.

When deciding if you want a photo booth you should think about potentials costs associated with it. Depending on what type of wedding photo booth you would like the costs can be either low or high.

If you decide to rent a photo booth machine, much like the ones you see in shops, then your cost will definitely increase.

If you want a wedding photo booth but want to keep the costs relatively low then you could design the photo booth yourself and have a camera or smart photo placed on a tripod in front of it. This way guests can do the snapping of their pictures.

If you decide to take the more cost effective route then there are many ways you can get creative with the wedding photo booth.

Depending on the theme of your wedding you can make the photo booth backdrop as simple, goofy, or complicated as you want.

For this, there are so many different things you could do. You can also include props for your guests to use to make their photos more goofy and memorable!

Props can include items such as sunglass (go to ICU Eyewear store to personalize them according to your preferences), regular and over sized ones, feather boas, lays, crowns, frames, etc.

A great idea is to also include a chalk board for your guest to write cute messages to you in the pictures.

To offer a slightly different take on the photo booth, Ross Hurley Photography offers a small portable studio setup in the corner of the room, with the same great props, same great themes but with that professional touch.

Guests can stand in groups of 2 to 4 and pose in as many fun ways as time permits. Being a small studio setup and having a professional photographer take the images, you get piece of mind, your guests get to have a great time and you all get great images.

Wedding photo booths can be a lot of fun, not only for you but for your guests too. Its a great way for them to let loose, get silly, and give you great memories that you might have missed other wise!
