Planning a wedding that incorporates new and innovative details can be a daunting task! Most wedding trends spread through the bridal world like a raging forest fire, and tend to fizzle out just as quickly. Take the photo booth, for example. What began as a super fun and unique way to capture real moments, quickly escalated to include things like props, backgrounds and quirky filters that are fun, but repetitive if you're a guest at more than a few weddings per year. So, what's the best way to stay on trend while still making sure guests are wowed by new ideas and details? Try your best to keep things personal and unique to you, the couple. In the case of the infamous photo booth, we've come up with five alternatives that are fun, original and far from overdone. Check it out:
1. Disposable Cameras:
Why not let your guests do all the hard work? Place disposable cameras on reception tables and get your guests to take snap shots of the night! Once you've received the prints back, make an album so you'll always be able to remember your wedding from your guests' point of view.
Put a spin on traditional wedding photography by hiring a talented caricaturist! Set up a caricature booth and get guests to sit and get their portraits done! Struggling to come up with a favour idea? Gift guests with pretty frames that their caricature portraits will fit into!
Hiring a videographer can be extremely expensive. Thankfully, Wedit has come up with a brilliant, affordable solution! For a cool $500, Wedit will send you five HD cameras in the mail so you and your guests can capture every moment of your day. Once the wedding is done, send the cameras back to Wedit and they'll give you a digital copy of all the footage and host it on their website for one year!
4. Polaroid Guest Book
How cool is this polaroid guest book idea? Selfies are all the rage right now, so why not indulge your guests' vanity by getting them to snap photos of themselves and writing a quick note in your guest book? Looking back, you'll be thankful you've got the photos and notes to help remember your big day!
Let's face it: your guests are going to Instagram photos of your big day whether you ask them to or not! So, then, why not set up a personalized hashtag and get guests to reference it when they upload photos. Have a big projector screen set up at your reception with a live feed of your hashtag updates so guests can see who's Instagramming what!
