Your wedding day is one of the biggest days of your entire life. Because it is so important, you want to make sure that you document the entire day from beginning to end. If you want to be creative when it comes to documenting your big day, there are a few ideas that you should consider.
Rent a Photo Booth
A photo booth is an excellent way to document the fun that your guests are having at your wedding. They can dress up in the silly disguises that go along with the photo booth, and they can take home their photos as a souvenir. After the wedding reception, you will be given a flash drive that contains all of the photos that were taken that night. They can be printed out and put in an album or in a large frame. You can add a small chalkboard so that guests can write a message to you and display it in their photos. This can be an excellent additional or alternative to your guest book.
Use Social Media
Social media is a great way to document your wedding. You can create a searchable hashtag on Twitter or Instagram. When your guests take photos, they can use the hashtag. This will give you a chance to get pictures from the perspective of all of your guests. Since it is your wedding, you cannot be everywhere at once. These photos will give you a chance to see what was happening when you were not around. To make sure that your guests know what hashtag to use, you can either include it in the wedding invitations or on a sign at the door. All of the photos that your guests have taken can be later saved and printed, giving you a chance to double your number of wedding photos.
A GoPro camera is a great way to capture the day from a variety of perspectives. The bride can keep the camera in her bouquet, and get amazing shots. At the reception, the camera can be passed around from person to person. This will give you a chance to see your wedding from a completely different perspective. You can even give the camera to the flower girl or the ring bearer so that you can see the reaction of the guests when the bride walks down the aisle.
Create a Wedding Bench
Traditionally, guest books are used for your guests to sign. While it is a great way to remember who was at your wedding, the guest book often ends up in the back of a closet or in the back of a bookshelf. One creative way to remember who was at your wedding is to create a wedding bench. You can purchase a wooden bench, painted white or stained very lightly, that your guests can sign when they arrive at the reception. After the wedding, the bench can be placed in your entryway or in a hallway. It will be an ever visible memory of your special day. The bench will be something that you and your spouse can sit on together on your 50th wedding anniversary. It can also become a family heirloom.
If you are having an outdoor wedding, you should hire a photographer who specializes in aerial photography in Canberra. You can get several beautiful and creative photos if you get some from a bird’s eye view.
Documenting your big day is very important. You want to be able to look back in 15, 25, and 50 years and remember how beautiful and special your wedding day was.
