Four Reasons Photo Booths are Replacing Wedding Guest Books

Brides and grooms just can’t get enough of keepsakes from their big day. This, of course, is why guest books were once an extremely popular addition to weddings.

It would seem that more and more people are turning off these though – and in the process are coming to embrace photo booths instead. If you’re set to walk down the aisle and are putting the final touches on the plans for your reception, here’s why photo booths are replacing guest books.

1. Formality

There’s just something a little too formal about guest books. This is perhaps because people feel pressured into writing something that is both meaningful and neatly-written. On the other hand, photo booths are a much more laidback way for guests to leave brides and grooms a keepsake of their attendance.

2. Timing

A guest book message that’s touching and from the heart can take time to write. Due to this, it’s often the case that people struggle to get a chance to write in it because there’s a backlog. Meanwhile, photo booths are quick and simple to use, meaning everyone can leave their mark in just a few seconds.

3. Inclusivity

Brides and grooms are making an assumption when they have a guest book at their wedding. This is that everyone has a way with words and are happy to put pen to paper. Opposite to this, photo booths just rely on people having to smile (or pull a funny face if they wish) before passing the outcome to the newlyweds.

4. Enjoyment

Is writing fun? That’s debatable. On the other hand, photo booths truly are a laugh-a-minute. In fact, people tend to gravitate to them more and more as the evening goes on and they start to relax a little. This means that there’s plenty more keepsakes for the bride and groom.
