Tips

Make a meal plan and know your budget before you shop. You don't need every kitchen appliance and gadget out there! Good knives are worth the extra cost. Meal prepping can simplify meals throughout the week Slow cookers are miracle workers: Throw in ingredients in the morning and come home to a hot meal! If you don't have fresh herbs, you can subsitute with dried: 1 tbsp fresh herbs = 1 tsp dried herbs 36

by Ben Brammeier, owner of Fish Eye Fun

There are a wide variety of photo booth styles out there. Traditional enclosed booths, GIF kiosks, slow motion video, and “open air� setups with a photographer like Fish Eye Fun all have pros and cons. The style of booth you pick should be subjective to both your personal preference and budget. Regardless of the booth style you choose, there are a few less fun but very important things to consider when picking a photo booth company for your reception. 40


1. PRIMARY SERVICE

You’re more likely to have a better experience with a company that specializes in photo booths over a company that offers one as an add-on upgrade. Though there are companies that provide multiple high quality services, it’s hard to be the best at something and a jack-of-all-trades at the same time.

2. SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE

Good photo booth companies will have a website and Facebook page with lots photos from previous events. Make sure the quality is not only good, but also consistent from one event to the next. You should also check places like the Perfect Wedding Guide website for reviews.

3. UNLIMITED PRINTS

When asking about “unlimited prints,” be sure to clarify how many prints the booth will print PER TURN. Will it make enough prints for each person in the photos to have their own copy or is it limited to two strips per turn with “unlimited turns?”

4. BACKUP EQUIPMENT

Every computer, printer and camera will fail eventually and will likely do so without any warning. Make sure the booth will have quality backup equipment ON-SITE. A backup printer doesn’t do much good if it’s stored at an office 45 minutes away.

5. BACKUP STAFF

Equipment is not the only thing to crap out at the last minute with no warning. What is the backup plan if the person scheduled to run the booth calls in sick or has a personal emergency? Finally, all things social media like GIFs, Instagram and live Facebook albums are awesome. We love it when someone makes a Fish Eye Fun photo their profile picture. But there is something special about a real print you can hold in your hand, put on your cubical wall, or share with Grandma and Grandpa. A print on your refrigerator will be visible a lot longer than a GIF on your timeline. 41

58

Dear Uncle Tom and Aunt Lisa, Thank you for the beautiful set of wine glasses. We love the style of the glasses and are looking forward to using them when entertaining. We are touched by your thoughtfulness and it meant so much that you were able to celebrate with us. Thanks again for the wedding gift. Love, John & Amber

Tips • • •

If you received a gift card or cash, mention how you plan to use it. Split up writing the notes over multiple days. Set a goal like writing 10 per day. Stock up on return address labels or purchase a monogrammed stamp with your address and new initials.

59


S

Who to Thank

tart by making a list of everyone that you need to thank. Begin with those that gave you wedding or shower gifts. Don’t forget to include those people that helped you with your wedding. Also you will want to send a special note to your wedding party members and parents for not only being a part of your big day, but also being an important part of your life.

I

When to Send

t’s good etiquette to send wedding shower thank you cards within 2 weeks of the shower. You will want to send wedding thank you notes within 3 months following the wedding. Of course, if you can’t get them sent within those times frames, late is always better than never.
