How much fun are photo booths at weddings?
I’ve had one at the top of my totally-unnecessary-but-would-love-to-have list since the very beginning. What a great keepsake for both the guests and newlyweds to remember the day by.
Unfortunately photo booths are pricy, especially when you’re getting married in a small town. I looked at a few booths that were either out of my price range or unwilling to drive to Titusville (without a hefty travel charge attached). Bummer.
Luckily I have a solution to that problem. My venue offers an add-on package for a makeshift photo booth during the reception. For a small fee they’ll set up a photo booth, supply the props, and take photos as guests pose in front of a backdrop of our choosing.

They’ll save all the photos to a disc and hand it over the next day to do with what we wish. I plan to make a digital scrapbook of the photos to keep on our end (maybe encourage friends and family to sign their photos when they visit?) and (this was what my sister’s friend did) send an additional copy of the photo to the guests when I send out the thank you cards.
My sister attended a wedding last year with the same set-up (and the same photographer!) and loved opening her thank you card to find the photo inside. She thought it was a nice surprise/ memento to remember the day by.
Birdsong will supply the props, but we can also add our own little touches to make the photos extra special. Maybe some seminole inspired props? photos of Maddie? ski gear so the guests can at least pretend it’s cold outside? the possibilities are endless.
