Today we’re talking about something that is near and dear to my heart- hiring professionals for your wedding. One would think that hiring professionals would be a no-brainer, but this isn’t always true. Sometime you think hiring a company who specializes in DJ services but has photo booths is just easier. Sometimes you just want to spend as little as possible, and so you resort to trying to find “alternatives” for the usual wedding services. And some of these “alternatives” usually end up involving having a friend or family member or friend of a friend or distant cousin do something instead of hiring a professional. In fact, there are even wedding planning sites out there that will tell you to not hire professionals in order to save money. Well friends, that is not a good idea. If you ask me, not hiring professionals is a recipe for disaster! Hiring a friend would end up causing way more issues than paying for a professional would… and yes, you get what you pay for!
Hiring a DJ who has a photo booth or a photographer who has a photo booth is also a recipe for disaster. Let’s be honest, you want your wedding to be perfect, so making sure that each aspect of your wedding is perfect should be left to the professionals in their prospective field. A company that specializes in photo booths pays attention to every little detail of the photo booth to make sure the props are clean and organized. They make sure the selection of props is amazing and not just some reused bucket of props from the wedding the night before. They will also make sure that the prints that the guest receive is just as beautiful as the rest of the details of your wedding. The scrapbooks are very important as well. When a company focuses on one service in particular you are going to have a better experience all the way around. It may seem easier to just have someone include a booth with their package but do you want just some booth? Do your guest want just some booth? Statistics show that guests spend just as much time in the booth as they do anything else at the wedding. (BAR INCLUDED)
