5 Reasons Brides Say A Photo Booth Is A Must Have For Your Wedding

Home / Blog / 5 Reasons Brides Say A Photo Booth Is A Must Have For Your Wedding

Whether or not to include a photo booth at your wedding is one of many decisions you are faced with during the planning process. You can ask your friends and family but that will leave you even more confused. Those who didn’t have a photo booth for their wedding will likely tell you its not worth it. On the other hand, those who had a photo booth will likely tell you it was worth every penny. Weddings have become more about creating an experience.  Couples are skipping tradition and making their wedding really stand out. The catering and entertainment have taken center stage and with the popularity of electronic devices it takes a little bit more effort to keep your guests’ full attention. Here are 5 reasons brides say a photo booth is a must have for your wedding day!

1.  Awesome Wedding Favor

There’s no need to stress over wedding favors when guests are free to take home unlimited pictures from the photo booth. Your guests are unlikely to leave their photos behind or throw them away.   All too often, favors are forgotten and disposed of after the wedding.  Personally, I can’t seem to throw away anything with my face on it so a picture as a favor is a keeper for me!

2.  The Ultimate Icebreaker


A photo booth is a great way to break the ice for your guests too.  It helps them to loosen up for what is sure to be an epic reception. Additionally,  it is the perfect time to socialize and engage with each other as they strike a pose for the camera.

3.  Extra Memories of Your Wedding Day

While your guests will have a blast posing for photos, these images will also be tons of fun for you to scroll through after the wedding. The photos from your wedding photographer (Rowlands Photography is awesome if you are still looking) will be great for putting on canvas or framing. However, the candid moments of your guests goofing off and trying to get the ideal pose in time for the next flash will give you a good laugh every time you look at them.

4.  Great Alternative For The Non-Dancers 🙂

Let’s face it not everyone’s feet were made for dancing. A photo booth is the perfect entertainment for your “wallflowers” & “seat huggers!”  All your guests, even the super shy ones, will have the absolute best time celebrating your wedding day.

5.  Appropriate For All Ages

Everyone from your youngest to your oldest guests can enjoy the photo booth.  Wedding attendees love to take pictures of their fun-filled day including the people they shared it with. Children, cousins, aunts, uncles, parents & grandparents will enjoy squeezing in for some family fun.  It’s so exciting to see multiple generations get the rare opportunity to take a beautiful print worthy photo to be treasured for a lifetime.
