5 Reasons Why You Need a Photo Booth at Your LGBT Wedding

Your wedding is only one day of the many that will make up your marriage, but it’s the day that all your loved ones gather together to celebrate you and your long awaited union. If you’re looking to throw the party of the year, we know just the thing that will guarantee a good time – a photo booth!

Who hasn’t struck a pose for the photo booths in malls and arcades? These instant printing picture machines have been reinvented to make sure your wedding is anything but boring. Here are five reasons why your guests will be thanking you for hiring a photo booth:

Break the Ice

Consider this – you’re bringing together a group of people who don’t have anything in common other than their love for you. There will be plenty of awkward small talk but a photo booth breaks the ice and creates a relaxed atmosphere. Before you know it, complete strangers will be posing for silly pictures together.

Fun for all

When it comes to photo booths, age ain’t nothing but a number. Everyone from toddlers to grandparents will be lining up to smile for the camera. Photo booths strike the perfect balance between novelty and nostalgia that appeals to every generation.

Show off your personality

Silly hats and glasses are a no-brainer but the photo booth is also an opportunity for you to infuse your pride and personality into your wedding day. Are you a booklover? Create a backdrop out of books! Love to sail? Let your guests play dress up with themed props! Get creative with your props, photo strip logo, and backdrop to add flavor where it’s least expected.

Share the love

Welcome to the twenty-first century where photo booths can post your pictures to social media on the spot! If you have guests who can’t attend your wedding, they can follow along on Facebook as your pictures post in real-time. Capture POD Photo Booths in Miami also has technology that lets you text and email photos to yourself or others!


Wedding favors get a bad wrap, and we understand why. No one finds a bag of coated almonds very appealing. Most often, they’re left behind on tables and your money ends up wasted! Luckily you can skip traditional favors when you hire a photo booth. Your guests will leave with handfuls of photo strips that they’ll treasure forever. Be sure to work with your photo booth vendor to customize your prints with text and graphics!

The Benefits of Hiring a Professional Wedding Planner

At some point in everyone’s life, the thought of getting married has come across their mind. Within the LGBT community the thought of having a wedding presents unchartered challenges in this new age of acceptance. Some thought it would never be a possibility, but there were those who have fought long and hard for marriage equality. I myself have always believed that this right should be afforded to everyone. As the mother of two gay children myself I have witnessed the strides that we have been taking towards true equality where marriage is in question, and we’ve certainly come a long way. I’m impatiently looking forward to planning my own children’s weddings in what I hope to be the near future. (Grandkids soon to follow).

Weddings are a great opportunity to bring families together and to express the love and joy of a committed couple. Gay, straight, bisexual or transgender a wedding is a lot of work from day one of planning to the moment vows are exchanged. Taking on the challenge of planning your own wedding is not an easy task. Therefore, hiring a wedding planner will save you from a lot headaches and heartbreaks.

Here are some of the benefits of hiring a planner.

  • Wedding Planners are trained professionals who are available to help you with all of your planning needs from beginning to end.  They are experienced and have the knowledge to make your day come together so that you and your guest can sit back and enjoy.
  • Planners do all the legwork for you, from finding your venues to choosing the vendors that best fit your needs and budget.
  • Planners help you score the best rates available therefore saving you money.
  • Planners schedule all of your appointments and act as the liaison between you, your vendors and venue, all you have to do is show up for the appointments.
  • Planners are there to provide a wealth of ideas, designs and information which in turn will save you time.
  • Planners help create and design your day, deal with all of the back end details on the day of to make sure your day is flawless.

When hiring a Planner –

Make sure your planner is involved with a professional organization and has professional credentials. Here are a few organizations you may want to research when choosing a planner:

  • National Association of Wedding Professionals (NAWP) There are various chapters nationwide, so search the chapter in your city or city you will be getting married in.
  • Association of Bridal Consultants also a national organization where you can find reputable consultants.

Having good chemistry with your planner and feeling comfortable is key, since you’ll be spending a lot of time together, and they will basically become your best friend for the length of your planning, so feeling at ease is definitely a must.

I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner for your special day, whether it’s full, partial or day of planning. A planner will save you money, time, and reduce stress so that you are able to truly enjoy your day. “We bring your visions to life!
