Photo booths are a popular and entertaining addition to special events and weddings. Jasser, Dave and Abby from Ready, Set, Booth breakdown the top 5 reasons to have a photo booth at your wedding.

  • To entertain your guests.The experience that your guests have at your wedding is a big factor in contributing to a fun vibe at the event. A photo booth can be a great way to help spark the fun.  Most photo booth services will include props with your rental and a choice of backdrops, but you can add your own personal touch by looking around your home for something quirky.  Some of our favourite props have come from our wedding clients themselves.  Things like old record covers, toy animals, trophies, plastic fruits or even old sweaters that are in the back of your mother’s closet.  Your imagination is the limit.  Open air photo booths have enough room to fit a big group at a time.  The smaller closed photo booths (similar to the ones you’ve seen in the mall) only fit 2-3 people at a time.  The open air ones can sometimes fit up to 10-15 people so you can gather with your whole bridal party or maybe all those friends from your hockey team.

  • So your guests can have a memento from your wedding.  As a bride or groom, you can expect to be on camera for most of that day.  For your guests, a photobooth is the perfect opportunity for them to also be featured in some awesome shots, and a way for them to have something to remember all the fun they had at YOUR wedding.  The best way to do this is with on-site printing.  Look for a service that offers a set of unlimited prints so that your guests can enjoy the booth as much as they like, all night long.  Some services even allow you to customize your prints with your wedding date and names!
  • As a safety measure. The wedding day goes by so fast, how can you make time with every guest before the sun sets? Now you can include everyone in your album without having to rush during the day. Not all the pictures in your photo booth have to include props. You can always just bring your friends to the photo booth and take a photo at your leisure during the party, with studio lighting!
  • Photo booth pictures come to you really fast. Because the photobooth has studio lights and high-end digital cameras, they don’t require the time-consuming editing that your photographer will need to do. As a result you can get your pictures super fast. Some photobooths even print your photos in under thirty seconds, and digital files are often delivered to you less than one week after your wedding.
  • Video messages are becoming more and more popular at weddings. Some of the newer photobooth services allow your guests to leave a little video message. It’s so much fun for the bride and groom to later watch their guests’ messages of congratulations and well wishes. Not all photobooths have this feature.

Ready, Set, Booth is an open-air photobooth rental service based in Edmonton and Calgary and also available for weddings throughout Alberta. With our touchscreen system, you can take your own photo and walk away with your killer print in less than 30 seconds! Guests can also leave video messages.

AND I have to add…it’s a great place for guests to mingle and hang out if they don’t want to yell over loud music at their table or aren’t really the dancing type. It gives the party a whole other hangout room to mingle and drink cocktails and enjoy being all dolled up. Even if you aren’t into the whole kooky prop thing!
