Photo booths have become an increasingly common sight at weddings. They add a fun new element to weddings, increasing guest satisfaction, making the experience more memorable, and creating countless new photos in the process. However, you’ll want to follow a few basic tips when using a booth at your wedding.

Include Props in Photo Booth

Don’t forget to include props in your photo booth. While a photo booth by itself is an excellent addition to a wedding, it’s even more enjoyable and rewarding when props like fake mustaches, hats, and goofy glasses are available. Props allow guests to express themselves in a less formal manner, capturing a different perspective of your wedding — a perspective that’s often overlooked in professional photography services alone.

Tell Guests How to Access Photos

Even if guests know how to use a photo booth, they may not know how to access their photos. Furthermore, the method for accessing photos varies depending on the booth. When renting a booth, ask the provider for instructions on how to access the photos, after which you can relay this information along to your wedding guests. Most booths store photos to the cloud, where guests can later access and download them.

Choose the Right Area

Where exactly do you plan on setting up your photo booth? Being that they are relatively small, you have many different choices. Some couples prefer to set up their booth near the reception area, as this makes it convenient for guests to use after the ceremony.


It’s also a good idea to use signage around your photo booth, guiding guests to its location. Depending on the venue and where the booth is located, guests may have trouble finding it. Just a few strategically placed signs, however, eliminates this problem. Set up signs at and around the booth so guests can find it more easily.

Rent from a Reputable Company

Unless you already own a photo booth, which is highly unlikely, you’ll need to rent one for your wedding. Don’t just choose any photo booth rental, though. Make sure the company is reputable, trustworthy, and experienced with weddings. SGM Events offers photo booth rentals for weddings, events, parties or just about any other occasion.
