Brides and grooms, I'm going to ask you a serious question here. Do you want to make your wedding day undeniably fun? The answer, I'm assuming, is a resounding HELL YEAH. Guests love being entertained at weddings, and you'll be so much more relaxed and happy if people are enjoying themselves on your big day. You've got a lot of options for entertaining your wedding guests — think DIY food bars, lawn games or everyone's favorite, the wedding photo booth!
Typical photo booths can be a little on the pricier side, and let's face it — with all the other wedding costs, spending an extra grand on a nice-to-have might not be high on your list of priorities. Luckily, we here at Wedding Party are always looking to make your wedding awesome — and that's why we've released a brand new mobile photo booth feature! Available on iPhone and Android smartphones, the photo booth on Wedding Party is a fun way for your guests to get the experience of a photo booth right from the palm of their hand.
How does it work? All a guest has to do is join Wedding Party, and then select the "Photo Booth" option in the camera. A countdown will start, and the guests will be able to take 4 selfies in a row. Once all the fun has been captured, each guest can choose to arrange the photos into a strip, square or our favorite, the looping GIF. Each photo booth snapshot will be shared to the Wedding Party photo stream, where other guests can see the awesome moments. Want to keep the photo booth pics forever? Simply download them to your phone! Yup, it's that easy. And I mean, come on — how fun is this?
Don't forget about that looping GIF now...
If you want to make your photo booth extra special and give it the full-on photo booth feel, you can set up a designated photo booth area at your wedding, complete with backdrop and props. (Pssst — we love this DIY photo booth backdrop!) From there, guests can snap all the fun with their smart phones, or you can leave a designated photo booth iPad or iPhone on site so guests without smart phones can participate too!
We're even going to throw in a freebie for you guys here. All Wedding Party couples get free printable photo booth props to use for their big day. Simply download, print, cut and you're halfway to a majorly fun reception.
Are you set up on Wedding Party now? Well, good! Your wedding is about to get so much more fun with this free DIY photo booth. Not to mention communication and planning with loved ones is about to get easier as well.
Remember — the photo booth is only fun if you get your wedding guests to join, so make sure to invite guests to the app + tell them about Wedding Party on the big day for maximum fun.
