3. Disposable camera photo booth
Another great way to get some hilarious photos from your guests is to set up a little photo booth area withing your wedding reception venue. Adding a few props and a sign to the photo booth area would be a great way to attract your guests to the camera and get them taking part.
We all know how much guests love a photo booth, this is a great way to make your own at a fraction of the price and still get some wonderful photos.
For this to work well it would be best for the photo booth to be put out before guests arrive for their welcome drink or during dinner so it is ready for them when they walk back into the room. Don’t leave it too late, if your guests have had a few to many later in the evening they will still have lots of fun taking the photos but you might not get as many that were taken successfully.
Asking the groomsmen or a close friend to notify the guests of the photo booth is a huge help in getting more people to take part. You could even spend a little time with your guests at the photo booth and get some hilarious photos with your nearest and dearest – Wherever you are your guests will be.
4. Make sure the flash is on!
This is one of the most important things to remember but also the hardest to control. Without the flash those little disposable cameras just can’t cope so do your best to make get the message across to your guests before they take a photo.
You could write it in big bold letters on the cameras, or make a large sign that goes next to the photo booth or camera station.
For our wedding we put ‘DON’T FORGET TO PUT THE FLASH ON’ in big bold letters at the bottom of our tick list and it seemed to do the trick, we only had one table out of 9 that forgot on a few shots which is bloody good going.
Me & my husband kept one camera for our table and made sure we took a couple of shots of each other on the day too. You can see the results below, they are hilarious!
