Tag: wedding reception budget
People at parties don’t want to THINK, so we keep it very simple for them and even stand by the booth the whole time to keep things moving quickly.
Once the booth is set up, invite your groups of guests into the booth.
Just 3 steps:
- Step on the photo trigger.
- Smile, jump around, do a handstand..whatever you feel like.
- Pick up and share your photos with friends and family immediately after exiting the booth.
Yes, it’s that simple. Simple is the only way it would work at a busy party with many people drinking.
So, don’t worry that the booth will be so complicated that people avoid it. It’s designed to be “figured out” quickly so your party attendees immediately start using the booth and talking about it.
You can’t have it all: dj, band, videographer, photographer, huge cake, 5 star facility, etc. Unless you’re a Trump, I suppose.
So why, with an average cost of around $800, is it smart to add a photo booth to your budget?
First, for the money, absolutely nothing adds as much FUN to your reception. Not even $800+ of alcohol! Add energy to your reception and give people something to TALK ABOUT. Family members that haven’t seen each other for a long time will be eager to take photos of themselves together…who knows when the next meeting will be?
Second, you’re capturing permanent memories. Not just posed photos, but really spontaneous pictures of your friends acting goofy with odd props.
Third, the booth is an opportunity to create contests. Maybe have the DJ stage a “funniest photo” contest. You can create trading games at tables with the photo strips as game pieces.
Finally, your guests will have the ultimate souvenir to take home from your wedding. How many party favors do you actually post on in your kitchen? That’s a really valued party favor!
So add fun, memories, games, and a great party favor to your reception by renting a photo booth from Divine Moments.
