4 Reasons to Have a Photo Booth at Your Wedding

You’re checking off your “wedding day” to do list. You’ve got your dress, cake, caterer and music… but you keep thinking, “What will really make my day memorable and fun for my guests?” Two words: Photo Booth.

Our photo booths are a true game changer.  Still not sold on the idea? Check out these four reasons why you need this party favorite that will have your guests lined up to join in on the fun:


1. I “mustache” you a question… do you love laughing?

Photo booths are pure fun!  Aside from the bar (is anyone really surprised by this?), the photo booth is always the busiest spot in the house during wedding  receptions.  Guests can expect the usual – eating, drinking, speeches, dancing… and the booth is a great way to bring an unexpected twist and give your guests time to relax their dancin’ shoes.

Photo booths are also a great way to keep your guests happy during cocktail hour while you’re having photos taken with your wedding party. Our variety of props will have your guests posing and laughing until you return for your grand entrance!

2. The more the merrier!

Having a wedding photographer is a must (of course, I am a little biased).  But, for some weddings, especially large weddings with 200+ guests, it is hard to photograph every single guest… which is why a photo booth is a great way to collect memories of everyone who attended your special day.

If you are worried about your guests not partaking in the photo booth fun, there are ways to encourage all of your guests to join in! We’ve seen the bride and groom hold a photo contest for each table,  use a hashtag to encourage people to share their photos on social media, or use the photo strips as a gift and send them home with nice frames.  We always ensure to ask the DJ to make plenty of announcements and reminders to come visit the photo booth.

We always have a trained attendant interacting with the guests to help make everyone’s photo booth experience a breeze!

 3. Photo strips are great favors for guests to take home!

Photo booths provide a wedding keepsake — for you and your guests.  Every single guest who comes through our booth will go home with a photo of themselves having a blast at your wedding.  You can add-on magnets or frames to your package and we will hand them out to guests so they can display their photos  when they get home.

4. Create a Fun and Unique Guestbook!

This may be the biggest reason of all to book a photo booth for your big day. Imagine getting home and being able to look through your scrapbook while laughing hysterically at your family and friends in over-sized sunglasses, feather boas and funky hats while reading their messages of love and O-so-wise advice on marriage. It’s a new twist on the traditional guest books and one that you will want to look at again and again.
