While I'm on the topic of regrets, I regret not publicizing the photo station enough. There was a sign, and a large fabric backdrop that was visible, but guests later told me that they thought the area was reserved for only close friends and family. Whoops, my bad. (See, that bull horn would have come in handy here too!)
In any case, I love the photos that we did get from the few guests that found the photo station.
They give me the warm fuzzies.
[I actually don't know what their message says. You would think that I would have asked one of them by now, but then what would be the fun in that? Can you read it?]
[It was hard to pick a favorite shot from these two. I'm impressed they stayed in the frame while jumping. And I couldn't agree more, tennis pretty much sucks with a bad partner!]
[My cousin is going to have a super cute wedding too!]
[My old roomies! Apartment 118 was so much fun, I'm still trying to convince the boy to put purple in our bathroom and add some stuffed animals to the bed.]
If I had to give advice to someone having a photo station/booth...
1. Make an announcement and have your friends/bridal party remind people that there is a photo station where they can take as many photos as they want.
2. Looking for color in your backdrop? Choose one with a large, vibrant pattern. Ours had polka dots, but they aren't very visible and I would have liked something more bold that would have popped.
Did you have a photo station? Any tips on how to spread the word or make it a hit?
