You’ve probably heard of a guest book, where guests sign their names along with a short celebratory message for you. But have you heard of a wedding video? A wedding video booth is where guests go to record a short video with words of wisdom, memories, a message about how fun the wedding was, or well wishes for the couple’s future. The result is a fun, interactive video you get to listen to and watch after the honeymoon (and anytime you want)! Signatures are great, but seeing a guest on film is priceless. I’ve been to a wedding with one of these and it was a really fun idea. It’s fun for guests to do, and even more amazing for the couple to watch at home after the big day.
Wedding Video Booth
Here is one example of a guest video booth, named a ‘Guest Box’ in this example. Basically, you just need to set up a small covered area that is preferably a small distance from music (so you can hear the messages clearly). You can use a photo booth setup for this and we recommend hiring someone to record messages for guests. This will ensure you won’t run into any problems (dead battery, operating issues, lighting, sound, etc.)
Don’t forget to include a sign to let guests know what to do (i.e. give advice, make us laugh, etc.) You can make an inexpensive sign with a chalkboard, some chalk, and an easel, like this:
