You probably have some things planned out for your wedding such as catering, venue, disk jockey, etc. but what you haven’t put into consideration yet, is a photo booth. In this day and age where everybody is taking a selfie for Instagram, Facebook and other social media websites just for fun, a photo booth is a way for you to gather those fun pictures of your guests at your wedding. Gone are the days were photo booths were these cramped little boxes that took unflattering pictures. Modern photo booths are sleek, open and hi-tech. Here are some great reasons why you should incorporate a photo booth at your wedding:

Capture Unique Memories

Your wedding photographer will surely capture the special moments from your wedding such as your first kiss and first dance. But nothing beats the photos taken of when you and your good friends just jump into a photo booth and take photos with funny poses. These moments are when you are genuinely happy and free and it will be nice to have a way to remember them. Most photo booths have the ability to print out multiple copies of photos, and this ensures the guests get their copy right away, as well as the couple. Some photo booth companies even went the extra mile to allow for the option of making a photo guestbook from the photos taken at the booth.

They Serve as Great Entertainment

Photo booths can serve as a source of entertainment for your guest. Weddings just like any other event has its down times, and during this time you want to keep your guest entertained. For example, at most weddings, the formal wedding photos are taken right after the ceremony, which leads to the cocktail period, and sometimes guest can become restless just by waiting for the cocktail hour to pass and for the reception to start. Photo booths are a perfect tool to keep your guest occupied and entertained during this part of your wedding.

Photo booths are FUN!

Photo booths are a great way to have fun. They are also suitable for all ages, from the children right up to the old people attending your wedding will enjoy a photo booth.

Bring people together

You might structure some aspects of your wedding reception to great the opportunity for guests to socialize with people they haven’t met yet. But there is something about photo booths that brings people together. People who have never met before might just become friends and it also serves as a sort of reunion for your friends and family. Your Aunties might just get a chance to meet their nephews, old friends that haven’t seen themselves for years might just use it as an avenue to create new bounds. The smile photo booths bring to peoples face is just priceless.

Serve as perfect wedding favors

Why give the traditional gift when you could have a fun photo from your special day that guests can look back on for years to come? A photo booth can serve as a great wedding favor that includes a personalized photo that captures how much fun guests had at your wedding. Pictures from a photo booth can be customized to include your wedding date, wedding colors and theme, making the perfect keepsake for both yourself and your guests.
