Sustainable Choices for Your Wedding
These days many people look for eco friendly ways to run their lives so they can conserve the earth’s resources and help make it a more pleasant and safer place to live with less pollution. But when it comes to a wedding there is so much to think about they are likely to forget about it. However, there are many sustainable choices that can be made for your wedding and hiring a photo booth is one of them.
At first glance it may be difficult to understand just how having a photo booth at your wedding reception can be considered friendly to Mother Earth, but it is. Remembering that every little bit counts towards the whole, so even if you think it is only a tiny drop in the bucket, it is still important.
When you choose a wedding package that includes use of a photo booth, it saves on the use of fuel. That is because you won’t have to drive around town looking for and interviewing photographers for the casual snaps at your wedding. Your guests will be able to organise their own happy snaps when it suits them during the reception and they can also download them, so they don’t have to use fuel to go to the photographer’s studio to pick up their photos. If you have 100 guests, that is 100 car trips you’ve saved; not so small an amount after all.
In fact, they’ll have much more fun because they can get into the spirit of the thing with the props that are provided and they don’t feel the need to pose in a formal way, like they would with a photographer. So they can really let their hair down and be as silly as they like and everyone will have a lot of fun laughing with them. And that’s the way a wedding should be; a joyous occasion that everyone can relax at and be themselves.
You may still have a photographer at the reception to take the more formal photos such as when the wedding party enters, cutting the cake and the first dance, however it depends on how formal or casual your wedding it. Many people ask a friend to take those photos and are quite pleased with the results.
It will also save you time and effort and that’s an important consideration when it comes to a wedding. It is a shame that organising and arranging the wedding and all its components is so stressful, especially for the happy couple. If you can think of a few ways to cut back on the time and effort involved, it is a good thing and you won’t feel under such pressure that you forget all about your good intentions to make your life eco friendly.
