Why You'll Want a Photo Booth at Your Wedding...

With moms, aunts, friends and everyone else who has stuck their neck into your wedding plans,  you’ve probably come to feel that the marriage is what’s for you, while the wedding is for everyone else. Well, you’re not completely wrong. You ARE throwing quite an expensive, once in a lifetime party! And while you definitely don’t need to stress over every detail for your guests, it is fun to add elements that are fun for you and your guests, like a photo booth!



 

Fun for Guests 

Guests have a BLAST trying on props and taking pictures as the night goes on (especially after a few drinks). Whether it’s the bride and her bridesmaids, a band of brothers, extended family reuniting at the wedding or alma mater pals, everyone finds their way to the photo booth at some point in the night, between the dancing and treats.

Memories (of harmless blackmail) for You to Keep 

While you were busy bustling your dress, cutting the cake, and greeting relatives, your guests are in full celebration mode. Photo booths provide you with half of the night you didn’t see! While it’s standard for photo booth companies to offer online galleries of photos from the night of, many provide memory book options where you get to keep a physical memory book of prints with personal notes from your guests. 

Most brides and grooms love being able to look at the silly pictures guests take as the night gets later and later and guests drink more and more… needless to say you can get some priceless photos to look back on and laugh (or share at the next rehearsal dinner slideshow for your friends!)


Save Yourself the Stress

Most photo booths start under $800 for 4 hours of service and often DJ companies, photographers, and other vendors will bundle in a photo booth for less! If you’ve ever tried to make a DIY selfie wall for a party, you know, it can be unexpectedly time-consuming & costly. 

Why risk that at your wedding? Leave it up to the pros to make sure this fun addition looks and runs absolutely flawless. Plus photobooths are finding really fun ways to be your not-so-traditional flair by adding GIFs, mobile sharing options, and with really exciting setups and backdrops. 


So why the heck not?! Like we mentioned before, there’s no reason to kill yourself (and your budget) over pleasing your guests, but if you’re between upgrading your china dinnerware and interactive experiences for guests, you at least have 3 more reasons to consider what might be more important after the big day is all said and done.

The Best Honeymoon Locations for 2020

With so many options and logistical tasks, honeymoon planning can be just as stressful as the wedding. That’s why we’ve done the research for you and compiled a list of top spots for 2020! 


Costa Rica

When it comes to Costa Rica, we couldn’t just pick one spot! Between the gorgeous beaches, volcanoes, rainforest, diving, surfing, wildlife, and mountain range, the entire country is for the adventurous who want to hop around and experience it all. For a 10 day trip, start in the mountain town on La Paz, spend a few days in La Fortuna, and finish it off at either Puerto Viejo, or Tamarindo. While a honeymoon with multiple stops typically requires more initial planning, it really makes for a once in a lifetime experience! 


Tulum, Mexico

While most of the Mayan Riviera region of Mexico is known for its large scale all-inclusive resorts, Tulum is home to intimate boutique hotels with gourmet cuisine and quite crystalline beaches. Sipping cocktails by the pool, lazing on the white sands and relaxing with your spouse is what Tulum is all about! And for the couple who favor a day excursion or two, zip-lining, kayaking and floating down underground rivers are perfect and accessible addition. Not to mention, Mayan ruins can be found close by at either Tulum or Coba.


Carefree, AZ

Honestly, it’s all in the name! As desert honeymoons become increasingly more the rage like with Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park, Carefree offers a more unique and cost-effective way to escape amongst the red rocks and cacti. This Arizona small town is just 40 minutes outside of Pheonix and Scottsdale making for easy access to a lively night. You better put rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, pool lounging, and then treating yourself to a couples massage on your itinerary. For a truly five-star honeymoon experience, check into the Boulders Resort nestled right into the mountains themselves!


Vancouver, Canada

Prepare to fall in love all over again! Vancouver is known to be a bustling, modern city surrounded by ocean and the beautiful scenery - perfect for the nature-loving couple. No matter the time of year, a honeymoon here offers endless opportunities for adventure. You and your spouse can take a stroll over the Capilano suspension bridge, explore Stanley Park, hitch a ride on a horse-drawn carriage, or pack a picnic and settle down in a quiet corner. With so many things to do, don’t forget to give yourselves some time to rest and have quality time at one of vancourvers beautifully designed resorts or AirBnB’s!


Negril, Jamaica

 Negril is hands-down one of the best (and less crowded)locations on the island of Jamaica. Whether you choose to stay at a small boutique hotel or a lavish all-inclusive resort for your honeymoon, this town can accommodate a range of budgets and styles. The main attraction is Negril’s miles of powder-white sands and turquoise water on Seven Mile Beach. In addition to natural beauty, the tourist areas are situated close to the town and give unique access to great local restaurants and culture. You can’t go wrong!
