events are coming back

April, 2021

Events will come back and they will come back in different shapes and formats. And they will come back stronger!



We are excited and looking forward to all of our upcoming events. We have added new "tools" to our arsenal, which includes our marquee LOVE letters, new props, a new lighted LED frame and lots more.



While some in-person events will initially be smaller, the overall experience will become even more important and that's what we give our customers.  Big or small, we always perform at 100%.



We have been waiting for this moment, and while we may have some obstacles in early 2021, it will come, we will event again!



We are excited.



…stay tuned!

WEDDING FAVORS

February, 2021

Is it OK to not have wedding favors?


A lot of brides feel as though they are socially required to purchase or craft guest gifts, but this just isn't the case or is it? Are wedding favors required? Technically not!  What factors go into how much to spend on wedding favors? First and foremost, your wedding budget and where favors fall on your priority list.  They're fun, but you don't have to go crazy—especially if you'd rather focus on giving guests experiences at the wedding instead of something to physically take home.


Perfect Favors

Are wedding favors a waste of money? Personalized party favors will probably be left behind at the reception says most experts. Personalized wedding favors are often times a waste of a couple's money and effort; do you agree? 


If you’ve ever thought about skipping wedding favors, could you do it and be happy? Wedding experts say most favors don’t make their way home with guests. You’re already taking care of your guests with cocktails, dinner, and desserts. That contribution is plenty thanks on the wedding day for their thoughtful attendance. 


Will they notice?

Your guests won’t remember if you don’t give favors and they won’t be upset you aren’t providing any. In fact, they probably won’t even notice their absence at all!  I attend more more than a dozen weddings each year and I don't believe guests miss favors. I can honestly say that most favors end up left at the wedding, thrown in the trash, or overlooked entirely. The only favors I see consistently used are small sweets, boxed or wrapped, atop each place setting. Even the packaging for that seems wasteful, as you’d be better off with an adorable dessert display without box or wrap costs.


Is there a better way to use your budget?

The average cost of wedding favors ranges anywhere from $175 to over $450 for designer favors. Should you allocate that money toward an extra honeymoon night or add another hour of photo booth services, photography, etc. for the wedding. Or even make your bouquet larger. Perhaps, forgoing favors could allow you to invite an extra couple or two to your wedding.


There are a lot of interesting trends for weddings and this is just one of them.  Your wedding, your budget right?  We just like to write about what we're seeing out there!






ARE PHOTO BOOTHS WORTH IT FOR WEDDINGS?

January, 2021

You spend months or up to a year(s) planning your wedding. The dress, the tuxedo, the colors, the cake, the food and the music! It’s all for one day and it’s the day you marry your best friend and get to celebrate with friends and family.  Of course, there’s going to be a photographer to document everything, but there’s that lingering question; do I need a photo booth at my wedding?



THE ANSWER IS YES!


Here’s why:


There are lots of things that make a great wedding; great food, an open bar, great music and a photo booth!


Photo booths are fun and because all weddings have downtime. photo booths are a great way to keep guests occupied and having fun during the cocktail hour. It’s also a perfect distraction while you and your new spouse are taking those breathtaking photos.


But the fun doesn’t stop there!  Throughout the reception, your photo booth will be the gift that keeps on giving to you AND your guests. Since most photo booths can print multiple copies of the photos, you can keep a copy of the photos as a memento—and so can your guests!


Pryceless Memories offers photo booth rentals for weddings that come with unlimited prints and a keepsake memory book. Your guests can print their photos right there for no extra cost. And, you’ll also have access to your online wedding gallery 24 hours after the big day, making it easy for you and your guests to print extra copies later.


Your wedding photographer will certainly get pictures of each guest table and they’ll take lots of candid shots of people dancing, but their main focus is YOU (as it should be)!

Some things to consider:


Choose the right location at your venue for your photo booth. If your guests don’t see it, they’re not going to use it!


Make the photo booth setup inviting and make sure to have a brightly lit area! You want the photo booth to be another part of your reception venue that people will look at and say, that’s beautiful!


Backdrop – it's the focal point and essential for beautiful  photos.

Props – having the right props can make or break your wedding photo booth experience.


SMS – photos can be sent directly to your phone and you can email as well. They can also be shared on social media.


Hashtags – create one and share with your guests. All your photos will show up there. We can also create a custom screen with your hashtag.


Logo – do you have one? If so, it can be incorporated onto your photos.


Your wedding day is the happiest day of your life, right? You’ll want to document as much of it as you can. 


Having a photographer is great, but there’s just something about a photo booth that brings out the most creative and fun sides of people (who knew that grand mom could pose like that). And those are the things you’ll want to remember on your special day!


Happy New Year and here's to a great 2021!



By spring we’ll be headed back to normal

says the experts!

December, 2020

The events industry consists of several sectors, including private, government, association, cultural, festivals, sports, music, tourism, and corporate.


With all of the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and its much-anticipated resolution, it’s natural to question what the industry will look like in 2021.  There’s one thing we know for sure,  the pandemic will come to an end!  And  the events industry will be reborn as people and their loved ones embrace the opportunity to gather in person again.


What was once taken for granted will now be a celebration not just of love, but of reunion and recovery.  Lots of people are thinking smaller and adapting to packages that  prioritize personal details over never-ending guest lists.  But we know, there will always be the large, over the top events as well.


However, a smaller event doesn’t equate to a smaller budget. In fact, lots of events that have limited headcount are re-allocating their budgets instead of cutting it. They’re investing more of their budget into creating a one-of-a-kind day for themselves and their guests.


While there’s no definite time frame for the end of COVID-19, we are using the upcoming months to gather our resources, grow and be more creative with our customers.  We look forward to events and celebrations like weddings, birthdays, graduations, proms, and mitzvahs. 


Happy Holidays and here's to a great 2021!



Before, During and After: Planning Live Events during a Pandemic

November, 2020

With states starting to open back up, it's time to start thinking about the future of in-person events and what they will look like.

choosing the right venue will entail evaluating their safety measures. Most venues are taking these measures and if not, you should be asking questions:

  • wearing masks
  • taking temperatures
  • Social Distancing Floor Decals
  • limiting the amount of guests that can attend
  • changing from indoor to outdoor (where possible)
  • hand sanitizing stations

We are excited about what 2021 will bring as venues are coming up with creative ways to host their events. Learn more about your state guidelines:
