Weddings, one of the most important days in anyone's life, are accompanied by a desire to make the event unique and memorable for all who attend. The only problem is that so many things that are desirable have been done a million times before. Many are left with the question of how to make this special event unique. While some people re-invent the wheel, most will simply take good ideas and make them their own.
One of these ideas is a photo booth. But how do you make it your own? Seeing as they are extremely popular, a photo booth will most likely be at your best friend's wedding, your aunt's fourth wedding, and your neighbor's dog's wedding. Does that mean you shouldn't have one at yours? By no means! We've put together a few ideas to make your wedding photo booth stand out above the rest.
1. Custom Backdrops
We all know the typical wedding photo booth backgrounds: white sheet, Christmas lights, cheap hanging streamers that get torn by children, the clumsy, and the inebriated. But what if you changed up the status quo with just a backdrop?
A custom gold, rose gold, or black sequin backdrop could add some class.
According to brides.com, vertical impact and garden-inspired florals will be a huge trend in 2017. Maybe hang some beautiful vines for your backdrop!
We also love to utilize venue space! Does your venue have a cool brick or wood wall? Is there a beautiful spot that isn't being used? Set a photo booth up in front of it and boom! A custom backdrop that your guests will never forget and is completely unique to your venue!
2. Custom Props
Typically, props are flimsy and boring. Find something unique that won't break after the first use! For example, we were hired to do a wedding with a tropical theme, so naturally, some of the decorations at the wedding were pineapples. Guests proceeded to bring these pineapples into the booth and pose with them. It was a huge hit! We have never had an event aside from that wedding use pineapples as props, so, not only was it memorable and fun, but it was incredibly unique.
3. Wedding GIF Booth
Like I said before, photo booths are in high demand and very popular. But what if you changed it up a bit? What if instead of a photo booth, you upgraded to a GIF booth? You and your guests could create fun, unique, and special GIFs that would be uploaded online, free for everyone to download. GIFs add a bit more life to the wedding photo booth experience and your guests can still walk away with prints.
4. Highest Quality
Many of the photo booths you'll find at weddings are going to be homemade and low quality. But isn't the point of having a photo booth to get really, really great photos? You shouldn't have to settle and can find something that's fun, different, AND high quality! Quality alone can be a unique addition to your special day.
