Ideas for a photo booth at your wedding

We all want the best pictures at our wedding, the kind of pictures that make the memories last a lifetime. We want quality pictures; we want spontaneous and fun pictures with our friends and group pictures with the whole family. Of course every wedding should have a photographer but what do you say about a new and original idea to get some great memories of your wedding?  

When you look at the wedding photos, you might realize that some of the guests are not in them, or they are just on the background of a picture or two. But there is a way you could have all your guests immortalized and that is if you get a photo booth for your wedding reception.  There are a lot of useful and fun ways for the photo booth to be used.

Photo booth for the kids

If you know that a lot of your guests will bring their kids to the wedding reception, this might be a great idea for a fun activity. You can set a photo booth with different cartoon-themed backgrounds or you could get some princess and superheroes costumes for the children to dress up and take pictures in the costumes. This will keep them separate from the adults, giving them space to enjoy themselves and will also entertain the children, keeping them from getting bored.

Funny faces

You could ask your guests to each get into the photo booth during the reception and take a picture making a funny face. This way, by the end of the night, you’ll make sure you have a fun memory with each and every one of your guests. You could also ask them to write you a message (thoughts, wishes) on the back of the photo and put it in a specially made box before they leave. You might not have a lot of pictures to show your parents, but you will have some great, funny photos for sure.

Green Screen photo booth

With the new green screen technology, you can add any background to the photos you take. So you could get a background with a picture of your honeymoon destination so that everybody can take a picture of them with you on your honeymoon, without threatening your privacy during the actual trip. It might also be fun to choose a wedding background so that other couples picture themselves as newlyweds.

Costumes and messages

You could also go for the classic “big glasses, funny hats” costumes and every guest could choose what costume to wear for the picture. They could take single or group photos. Also, another cute idea would be for you to get a mini blackboard, so every person, couple or group of people that goes in to take pictures could write a message on the blackboard. This way you’ll get tones of fun but also emotional photos.
