The wedding reception photo booth has seen exponential growth in popularity for the past few years. Before the wedding photo booth, what comes to mind is the image of carnivals, movie foyers, shopping malls and train stations when the catch key words “photo booth” is mentioned. Thanks to technological advances with digital photography and printing, the capability of having on-demand photo strips as wedding favors is only a few clicks away.
Having a photo booth at your reception will be fun. Lines of guests dressing up in costumed attires, smiling and squeezing in the photo frame and laughing as they exit has made the photo booth a good go-to center piece for many modern weddings.
The first thing you would want to consider when choosing a photo booth service is your space allotment. Speak with your photo booth vendor and ask how much space is needed. Make sure that the space would include room for props and for any additional tables that they may require. With Photo Booth Rental Jacksonville, we can accommodate larger groups than that of the traditional photo booths which has limited photo frame capacity of only a few people. You can have family and friends be squeezed into a single photo frame and because there is more room, there is more creativity to show on the photos.
The theme of the wedding would also be considered. Ask the photo booth vendor if they can customize their photo prints and backgrounds that will match your wedding theme. An exterior monitor can also be good so guests can view what is going on the photo frame and have the booth be customized with your information or photos.
The best time to have your photo booth open is during the cocktail hour, right after the ceremony and run it through the reception. This gives guests to do something while there is a bit of a downtime on the event. In cases that the cocktail hour and reception is far apart, then having the booth run until reception is great. Typically, photo booths are set up early on the venue and the attendant would just drop in to have the photo booth rolling. Have the opening of the booth announced when you have their attention or with your DJ or MC over the microphone. Also worth mentioning the location and the run times of the booth.
From today’s wedding trends, couples would like to be truly unique and their weddings be full of personal experiences. Cost, space and availability might not always be negotiable when it comes to renting an open air photo booth, the actual question to ask is “why not?”.
