A Dance Booth

If there’s going to be lots of dancing at your wedding, consider the location of your photo booth. It shouldn’t be too far away from the dance floor but you may want to pump different music into the booth to make photo taking even more fun. Let those having their photos taken choose a theme tune and get their creative juices and poses flowing.

A Sporty Booth
