The big conundrum of how to make sure your guests have a good time, whilst keeping hold of your budget kept us in discussion up until the day before the wedding!! In an ideal world we’d have: a free bar; photo booth and band. As with anything is wasn’t in our budget, so we went about making sure we did a few things well and came up with cheaper alternatives.
What we decided to do was buy our own Polaroid camera and my bridesmaid luckily had the props which she brought on the day. These went down so well and we enjoyed looking through the cracking pictures the following day (it was clear to see the deterioration of drunkenness as the evening went on!). The guests had the option to include their photo in our guestbook (which I brought from the lovely Liberty of London shop) or peg them on our notice boards. We were a bit apprehensive about the outcome of this but it worked perfectly. Phewf!
