Photo booths are becoming increasingly popular at weddings – and the range of options available is vast. You can create a DIY backdrop where your guests can pose, hire a Photo Booth vendor, or consult with your photographer for them to make a posing area. All options are fun and provide different perks.

Whatever route you decide, a photo booth will ultimately come with some additional expense. Below I list a few positives to having a photo booth, and in the end, hopefully, it will help you in your decision process to determine if it’s worth the additional expense.

  • Entertainment: A photo booth is an excellent source of entertainment. At the most recent wedding I’ve attended, while the bridal party was taking photos, the photo booth entertains the guests during the in-between time. Along with this, for guests who don’t get involved in dancing or need a break from the dance floor, it’s a great outlet.
  • Additional Photos of Guests: As the bride and the groom, you are the center of attention, and your photographer will be taking a large number of photos of you and the bridal party. In the end, you may not have as many pictures of guests, and by having a photo booth, you will be able to capture those additional photos of your guests.
  • Mingling with Guests: It’s important to mingle with your guests, and often, that means going from table to table to greet everyone. With a photo booth, you can make a designated time to take photos with guests, where you can both greet them and capture fun photographs that will last for years.
  • Additional Wedding Favor: Another plus to having a booth is that the photo strips can act as an extra wedding favor or the wedding favor itself. The great thing about photo booths is that families can go through multiple times and end with numerous photos at the end of the day.
