PhotoBooth Setup Mistakes
Wedding days are one of the most highly anticipated moments of one’s life. It’s an extraordinary occasion for lovers to seal their devotion to each other through the time honoured tradition and share it with their families and friends. Every individual has his or her image of what a perfect wedding day for them, even if they are not yet engaged. However, the actual planning and preparation start with the big “Yes!”
Wedding preparation can often be a tiring, confusing, and stressful process. Through this period, the couple would want everything to be the best. From the date of the wedding, the venue, the officiant, the wedding dresses, the music, the food, and the guest list, it must all be according to plan. And one of the necessities on the wedding day is the choice of photographers for the couple and who will prepare the photo booth for the guests so that you can always revisit your wonderful day.
Photobooths provide your guests with souvenirs for them to keep and allow for those who may be a little camera shy still get in your wedding photos. If you want to maximise your investment for the photobooth, then communicate with the photographers early on to avoid these four common photobooth setup mistakes when considering a photobooth for your wedding.
4 PhotoBooth Setup Mistakes to Avoid on Your Wedding Day
- The Theme Not Matching the Party
This must be the first aspect to consider hiring a photo booth. Inspect the layout of the printed photos to ensure that it matches well with your wedding motif. It’s best to request that their physical booth will also back the theme and ambience of the venue. Otherwise, it may be out of place and can ruin your perfect day.
Most photobooth suppliers offer a selection of templates for the printouts provided – if they don’t mention it simply ask and they will be more than keen on showing you some selections.
- The Location Not Being Ideal
The photobooth must be located somewhere in the venue that everyone can easily see and conveniently attend. This can be achieved by finding the optimum space where people can unavoidably pass by it and be encouraged to have their pictures taken.
Although photo booths have a high appeal to most people, some do not have that much inclination to voluntarily walk up to the booth’s location. This is why it is still good to consider the ideal positioning of the photo booth!
- An Attendant Not Being Present
A photobooth with an attendant present makes it more managed and organised. And beside or nearby the photobooth, a presentable guest book can also be available so that guests can fill it up with their best wishes for the lovely couple while waiting for their turn at the photobooth – or sticking in their printed copy of the photos they just took.
The SvenStudios photobooth somes with quite an array of props and the area can be messy without someone nearby tasked with cleaning it up – an attendant would also be tasked with making sure the booth is running correctly and is well stocked with paper and ink.
- The Time Slot Not Fitting the Party Activities
Because photobooths are only hired for a limited period, it is best to put them in a time slot wherein guests will be wandering about the venue waiting for the bride and the groom. Some photobooths are mistakenly scheduled when the party has a highly engaging activity. In the end, the photographers get sidelined and gain the most minor attraction to the audience. If the photobooth is not maximised during its hired time, then the moments of your guests will be significantly reduced to the ones taken by the hired photographers.
The SvenStudios photobooth tends to be hired out for the whole reception – we dont like putting an hourly limit on our bridal couples!
Although your party will not be that affected by one or two of the basic mistakes we’ve mentioned above, it would be relaxing to know that your guests can find another things to do and enjoy while celebrating with you on your very special day. If you want to have the most memorable day of your life, be sure to consider the information on photobooth setup mistakes outlined above so that you can reduce one stress point on your big day!
