The wedding reception is often the part of the big day where the bride, groom and the rest of the wedding party can relax. Vows have been said, and everyone gets to enjoy food and drinks. You can make this part of your wedding even more fun by adding a photo booth to the festivities. Consider these ways the photo booth can enhance your reception.

Photo Booths Provide Feel-Good Entertainment

An open photo booth can provide hours of entertainment. The nostalgia factor can send people flocking to take part in the picture-taking. Because the props and photos often make people laugh and smile, photo booths can also elevate the mood of the event. Photo booths can be entertaining with zany props and the creativity of guests' imaginations.

A photo booth at the reception allows people to come and go as they please. Guests who want to eat first can do that, while those who are eager to take photos before their lipstick wears off can visit the photo booth when they first arrive at the reception.

Photo Booths Put Your Wedding Day Hashtag to Good Use

When you use a photo booth, you are giving your guests the opportunity to curate great photos of themselves at your wedding. That can make them feel good, and it can also encourage them to share their memories of your wedding on social media where you can also enjoy them. You can also encourage the use of your wedding day hashtag when they're sharing the photo booth pics.

The New York Times  reports that sharing is a big draw of photo booths, and guests can enjoy sharing fun photos of themselves while also spreading love for your wedding. Photo booths empower guests to instantly express how they feel about your wedding on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites where they can easily include your wedding hashtag.

Photo Booths Provide Instant Party Favors

Empower your guests to leave your wedding with more than happy memories and great feelings about witnessing your love. A photo booth at your wedding reception is one way to give guests instant party favors. You might encourage guests to take multiple pics and get instant printouts of all of the photographs they take.

Not only do photo booths give guests instant party favors, but they also provide guests with party favors that they're likely to keep forever. While bookmarks with your wedding details or bath salts that smell heavenly will be enjoyed by some guests, that type of party favor is easily forgotten. On the other hand, photo booth printouts are likely to be kept as treasured keepsakes.

Photo Booths Are Fun for All Personality Types

Although your wedding day should be focused on what you truly want as a couple, you also want to make your guests happy and comfortable on your special day. When you think of all your guests' needs, you help nurture an environment where everyone can create happy memories around your wedding. Don't forget the introverts!

Photo booths are great for introverts. The booth can provide a moment for introverts to get away from the action for a bit and regroup. In fact, photo booths are one easy way to provide something fun for all personality types. You can offer a variety of props and games as part of the photo booth to appeal to different needs of guests.

Finally, follow your heart when it comes to making decisions for your wedding. Photo booths are an easy way to add pizzazz to your wedding reception. Royal Entertainment  offer deluxe photo booth rentals that can be set up inside or outside. With unlimited prints, fun props, and a memory book to savor, you'll have a lot to love about having a photo booth for your wedding reception.

Any birthday should make people want to celebrate, but a sweet 16 birthday is a special milestone. The party for a sweet 16 birthday should highlight the teen's interests and attributes to make it personal. It should also have a grander feel than other birthday parties because it is commemorating a milestone.

No matter the size of the guest list, a milestone party requires special planning that includes creating a guest list, picking out invitations and choosing a party theme. Fortunately, a party venue can take care of many of these details for you, such as organizing entertainment and a photographer. So, as your teenager approaches this pivotal, defining moment, plan a unique celebration for friends and loved ones.

In today's world, reaching a marriage milestone measured in decades is quite an accomplishment. If your parents plan to celebrate their 40th, 50th, or even 60th anniversary soon, you may already be working with your siblings or other loved ones to plan the perfect surprise.

However, not everyone enjoys being the center of a surprise party. And while you may be excited at the prospect of planning and throwing a great party for your parents while leaving them none the wiser, you'll also want to avoid creating a stress-induced cardiac episode for one of the guests of honor.

Read on to learn about some ways to surprise your parents at their anniversary party while ensuring they're at least somewhat aware there is a party being planned in their honor.

#1: Surprise MusicalGuests

One way to make your parents' anniversary party one to remember is to secretly book a special musical guest or band-ideally one that is able to play (or cover) your parents' "song"or who can choose from a selection of the songs that were popular during the early years of your parents' courtship and marriage.

You may opt to make your guests even more of a surprise by concealing any musical equipment in a darkened corner of the room or under a sheet. This part of the room can be illuminated just as the musicians begin playing, with a spotlight simultaneously guiding your parents to the dance floor.

 #2: A Hidden Social Media Page

Even if your parents don't use social media(or use it only to see photos of their grandchildren), they may appreciate receiving well-wishes from far-flung family members, former coworkers, and friends.

By setting up a page on asocial media website and then inviting your parents' friends, family members,and acquaintances to "like"and visit the page or contribute their own stories or memories of your parents' marriage, you'll be equipped with the virtual equivalent of a guestbook at the party.

A virtual guestbook can be a great way to solicit well-wishes from those who are too faraway to attend the party in person. With the advent of live-streaming videos and the ability to take and nearly instantly upload pictures, page viewers may even be able to record their own anniversary wishes for your parents, much like guests might in a wedding video.

Your party planners can display this website on a projection screen during the party,allowing other guests to view and comment on the well wishes received.

#3: An Impromptu Vacation

Even if your parents are expecting a"surprise"party for their anniversary, they're likely to assume that they'll be headed back home at the party's end. One way to surprise them(and provide them with an unexpected gift at the same time) is to plan and book a vacation to take place immediately after the party.

By giving your party planners a heads-up early in the process, you'll be able to enlist their help in coordinating with a local ride-share company or car service that can whisk your parents away to the airport or train station as soon as the party has begun to wind down.

If you go this route, you'll want to either ensure your parents have quick access to their luggage or time to go home and pack before leaving for their destination.

Alternatively, you can pack some clothes and necessities for them and bring this luggage to the party or provide them with the funds to buy much of what they need, such as toiletries, once they've reached their destination.

For more ideas, you can consult your party planners at Royal Entertainment. We can help you create anything you can imagine,and we'll be happy to help.

A bat mitzvah is an important time in a young Jewish girl's life, and there is no better occasion for a major celebration than this milestone. As your daughter prepared for the big day, she had to work hard and prove her dedication. Make the celebration a time to reap the rewards of all that hard work.

These extra touches can transform the gathering into something your daughter and her friends can really embrace as their own. Small things can add up to a huge amount of enjoyment at the celebration. Consider these ideas when planning your daughter's bat mitzvah.


Go With a Theme That Is Significant to Your Daughter


Themed celebrations are especially memorable, and they really get people talking. You are free to choose any theme that is special to your daughter. Whether she wants to feel like a princess or a character in her favorite movie, a themed party can help everyone have fun. In 20 years, your daughter and her friends may still refer to that special bat mitzvah that stands out among others.


Offer a Photo Booth with a Variety of Fun Props for All Ages


A photo booth is a classic but contemporary way to up the fun factor at the celebration. It's also a fun way to help your daughter get some social media love. Young guests will delight in posting pictures from the photo booth on social media. If you want, you can even create a hashtag and encourage people to share their photo booth photos on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter using the hashtag of the gathering.

The photo booth can be included in a special theme, too. For example, if you chose a Hawaiian theme, you could pick leis and hula skirts as props for the photo booth. That can lead to some laughs and enjoyable photos, and it can also serve to help kids look back and instantly know when that photo was taken.


Hire a Professional DJ Who Knows How to Delight the Crowd


A professional DJ can read the crowd and know the right music to play for the mood and tastes of those who are enjoying the celebration. If the energy starts to lag, a DJ can help get things going again. When your daughter wants to dance the night away at her bat mitzvah, a professional DJ can make all the difference to ensure the best tunes are played at the right moment.


Cater the Bat Mitzvah with Kid-Friendly Treats


Good food will satisfy everyone at the bat mitzvah celebration. When you work with an event planning company to make sure that your daughter and her friends have foods that appeal to them, your daughter is sure to appreciate the extra care to celebrate this huge milestone in her life. You can even request your daughter's favorite foods.

A caterer can provide a variety of menu options. That way, the adults can enjoy delicious food while kids still get foods that help take the celebration to the next level in their eyes. You can choose kid-friendly snack, dinner, dessert, and beverage options. Also, catering can be another way of celebrating your party's theme. For example, if the theme is Paris, you can have a French menu.

Finally, mazel tov on your daughter's bat mitzvah! Royal Entertainment offers everything you need to make a bat mitzvah celebration one your daughter will cherish. We can take any theme you have in mind and help you bring it to life. We offer photo booths, professional DJs, and catering that will exceed your expectations.
