4 Things You Shouldn’t Do When Hiring a Photo Booth for an Event

When you are planning an event, no matter if it is a wedding or a birthday party, one of the things that you need to take care of is the entertainment. And no, we aren’t talking about the wedding band or dancing; it’s about deciding on the entertainment for those in-between moments when your guests mingle around. For instance, at a wedding, that time between the ceremony and the reception, when guests have nothing much to do other than sit, talk, or drink. During that time, having an alternative source of entertainment can add that much-needed pizzazz to the evening. This is why hiring a photo booth is always a good idea. Photo booths capture images of all the fun moments at the event that you can cherish forever. The best part about them is that they can be enjoyed by people of all ages. But if you want to have a memorable photo booth experience at your party, you need to avoid some common mistakes. Here are a few of them:

  • Not knowing what you are getting One of the biggest mistakes people make when hiring a photo booth is not looking at all the options. There is a wide variety of photo booths available, including open air photo booths, old- school booths, mirror photo booths, and so on. Your decision should depend on what you want out of it.

  • Not matching the booth to the theme of the event When setting up the photo booth, chances are you would want a backdrop. If the backdrop doesn’t match the theme of the event, the resulting photos will look out of place. Moreover, the booth can also look like an eyesore because it will stick out. Additionally, you can also customize the template of the photo to fit the theme.

  • Setting the booth up at a less-than-ideal spot The photo booth should be set up at an easily noticeable and accessible location. Pick a spot that people cannot avoid so that they are encouraged to have their photos taken. You can set it up near the entrance, near the dance floor, next to the bar, and so on.

  • Not scheduling the rental time properly When you are renting out the photo booth per hour, it is crucial that you schedule the rental time to fit into the party activities. Hire the booth during a time slot when your guests will simply be sitting or wandering around. As mentioned earlier, it could be the time between the ceremony and the reception at a wedding or the time before dinner at any other event.
