Wedding Photobooth

One thing I was certain I wanted at our wedding was a Photobooth. I had seen so many great wedding photos that involved some sort of photobooth, and I knew I wanted that for ours. I loved that it added something fun for guests to take part in, and we ended up with so many fun memories at the end. Not to mention, it doubles as a favor for your guests and a guestbook for you to keep.

Steps in Planning a Photobooth:

1. Determine the type of photobooth you want. Since I am extremenly type A, I did a lot of research of the different types of photobooths, and the pro's and con's of each. The picture, from, shows all the different type of photobooth's that are out there.

We decided to go with a traditional photobooth. Our reception was in a tent and we were extremely limited on space, so we were really left with little to no options. Don't forget, you can always make your own photo booth! The Girl Creative offers a great blog about different DIY options for wedding photo booths.

2. Deciding on a Company. For us, we wanted to find a Company that had good reviews, their pricing was competitive, and they offered more than just a photo booth (i.e props, print outs for guest, thumb drive with pictures, etc.). We ended up deciding on 5th Avenue PhotoBooth and we were extremely happy we did so! Ways to search for photobooths are through the Knot, Yelp, and Groupon. I would always recommend deciding on a Company then searching for a coupon code to get the best possible pricing.

3. Props and accessories. Once you have decided on a Company, make sure you have planned the remaining parts out. If the Company does not offer props, buy props for your guests to use inside. It adds a fun element to an already exciting feature. Tons of websites offer free downloads, like here and here  or you can go to Michaels and buy ready made props.

4. Have fun! We had so much fun in our Photobooth, and I am pretty sure our guests too! Make sure you have appointed someone to be in charge of your guest book and pictures from the booth. Trust me, you will not be thinking about this at the end of the night, but will want it the next day.

Here is a highlight of our wedding photo booth shots.

I would love to hear your thoughts on your wedding day photobooth! Xoxo, Alysia
