Photo Booths

Photo booths are one of the newest reception trends and they are quickly becoming a wedding staple! During receptions, guests often look for something to do, whether during the lull between the ceremony and the reception, right after dinner, or even during dancing. Keep your guests occupied and entertained throughout the night by renting a photo booth.

Couples usually rent one from anywhere between three to eight hours. Guests will love plotting their poses and picking out props. They walk away with a photo they can keep and the bridal couple has a copy that is placed into a scrapbook keepsake just for them. Photo booths are the perfect way to entertain your guests and to preserve fun wedding memories at the same time.

Flipbooks

One of the newest trends for guest entertainment is mobile flipbook studios. Similar to photo booths, guests step in front of the camera to create a short video clip. Within mere minutes, this recording is turned into a personalized flipbook. The flipbook booth is manned by professional attendants to produce the books and help with the flow of guests. Not only do your guests walk away with a fun favor, but everyone is able to enjoy watching other guests create video clips. The bride and groom are even able to purchase a compilation of each guest’s clip.

There are many options to personalize the flipbooks and the experience. Couples can opt for custom flipbook covers, fun props, customized backgrounds, light graffiti, scrolling text along the bottom of the flipbook pages, fun signs and either black and white or full color books. Though they make the perfect wedding favors, flipbooks may also be a fun activity for the Bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner and are a unique option for Save the Dates or Thank Yous.

Caricatures

For the couple that wants a distinctive and unique wedding reception, hire a caricature artist to entertain your guests and have them talking about your reception for years to come. A caricature artist will set up his easel facing out from the wall so weddings guests can gather around and watch the process. Artists can usually draw anywhere from twelve to eighteen people in an hour.

Guests are entertained by the interactive process and they leave your reception with an artistic and memorable wedding favor. The appeal of caricature crosses generations. Guests of all ages enjoy the excitement generated by watching an artist at work. People that might not otherwise want to be drawn enjoy having their image captured when they are all “dolled up” for a wedding.

Families, couples, children, the bridal party and more love sitting for a caricature artist. It is priceless entertainment for all involved, even if not everyone takes home a drawing.
