The 2019 summer wedding season is upon us and if you’re looking for ways to make your wedding more memorable, a photo booth might be on your mind. Photo booths are a great way to help your guests capture exciting memories of your big day and they have increasingly grown in popularity over the last few years. If you are considering a wedding photo booth, here are the top photo booth trends of 2019!
Mobile Photo Bus
This one might seem a bit farfetched, but mobile photo buses are primed to be a huge entertainment feature at weddings in 2019. All over the country, iconic Volkswagen buses are being detailed and decked out with lace, curtains, and decorative pillows to serve as the perfect mobile photo booth. You can snap pics inside or outside, and these are great for weddings with a vintage or rustic theme.
Open Air Over Enclosed Space
Traditionally, you would pay a company to drop off and man a photo booth for the night. However, enclosed photo booths are big and bulky, and people are steering clear of them in 2019. Instead, people are turning to open-air photo booths. This not only allows you to be creative and put a more unique flair on your wedding photo booth, but it can also help you save on costs since you can design everything yourself!
Instead of a static photo booth on an old-fashioned standard backdrop, in 2019, expect to see styled spaces for wedding photo stations. Not only does this allow you to show off your creativity, but it also lets guests take a variety of photos that look different, but still tie into the wedding theme. This can be as simple as a rustic pallet backdrop styled with flowers, lace, and your initials, to extensive floral backgrounds.
Another wedding photo area trend that is gaining popularity is Boomerang GIFs. The animated looping video of a subsequent series of static images can be uploaded onto social media using your wedding hashtag, or they can be printed in a fun flip book. Consider gifting the flip books as your fun wedding favor! Either way, you’ll have a snapshot in time of a memorable evening.
Perhaps the biggest wedding photo booth trend in 2019 is the use of nontraditional backdrops. Plain backgrounds were great last year, but this year, photo booth backdrops are taking a life of their own. Couples are creating stunning backdrops for their wedding ceremony, and then turning them loose for photo booth shoots all night! Look to utilize open-air intimate and intricate floral backdrops or turn to long streams of sheer fabric. Vibrant colors, shapes, and patterns are going to be extremely popular in 2019. This year, photo booths will be a more exciting, yet intimate experience for guests and utilizing your ceremony backdrop is a perfect way to utilize the space even longer.
