We realize that your wedding is many things. One one hand, it is a solemn occasion where you realize the gravity of what is happening to you. You are actually entering into wedded bliss. On the other hand, you want some lighter moments where you and your guests get to have a lot of fun as you relax and truly celebrate what your big day means. There are many ways in which you could do this including hiring a live band or DJ for your reception. Hopefully you are able to hire someone who will have your guests on their feet dancing the night away. You can also hire a candy buffet which is not only appealing to the eye but also an amenity that will allow your guests some yummy times on your wedding day and for many days afterward as they walk away with their very own stash of prime candy. Of course, great food and drink is also very enjoyable. But if you think you want to take your reception to the next level in terms of entertainment, we recommend that you look into renting a photo booth that will have your guests laughing all night long and it will provide them a keepsake that can always cherish from your big day. This option has been a growing trend for awhile now and we feel it is worth checking into. So, start looking throughout the New Orleans area and find some candidates that are of a higher quality. Then turn to the guide below to help you figure out who your hire should be.
So, where should you begin with your search for this fun attraction? Start by asking people you know. Ask your family, friends, and coworkers if they have ever experienced a photo booth at an event and find out about the quality of the booth. If you find someone who tells you that they had a blast in a high quality booth, try and track down the name of the provider. More than likely, your wedding vendors should be able to provide you with some vendors that you will want to check out. And we can't forget about doing a Google search for “photo booths in the New Orleans area.” You might be amazed at the providers that will pop up. This method can be somewhat time consuming but it is worth grinding through the results to see if you can add to your list of quality candidates that you will want to check into. By this time, you should have a few candidates that you can call up and ask if you can come by their place to check out a photo booth and ask a few questions.
On your site visits, the first thing that you will want to do is check out the quality of the photo booth that would be setup at your wedding. This is an absolute must because the last thing that you want is to see an eyesore in a prominent position at your reception. Ask them if they have different sizes. Some booths only fit 2 people while others can fit up to 10. We recommend getting a larger one if you can because it can be a lot more fun.
Find out what kind of camera the booth uses. It is good to know that a DSLR camera takes better pictures so if that is an option, you will definitely be pleased. Also, ask about the printer. A dye-sublimation printer is much better than an inkjet. Make sure that they operate it right in front of you. Find out what the bottom line price would be for the number of guests you are having. Once you have all of this information from all of the vendors that you interview, it will be time to determine which candidate rises to the top.
