So you have a wedding coming up and you are looking to save some money, you decide it would be more financially responsible to create a DIY photo booth instead of renting one. Seems like a good idea, right? Not so fast! It’s important to think about what a photo booth from Clear Choice Photo Booth has to offer. It’s not just the photo booth: we can provide a stress free experience for both you and your guests, a scrapbook that you can take home that night and an experience that you will always cherish! And don’t forget that your photo strips get printed out right there, on the spot! So before you decide that saving a few dollars might be worth it, check out the reasons below why it might be best to rent a photo booth!
You have to provide, or make your own probs
We provide a ton of props for you
Don’t have any crazy, large glasses laying around? No fun mustaches or lips on a stick? How about some fun digital probs for your guests to use? No? What about fun signs to hold up that will make your guests enjoy their photo booth experience even more? Looks like you’re going to be spending extra money (and time if you decide to DIY) on some props for your guests. Whereas, most of our photo booth packages come with our own set of high quality props, including those large glasses, tons of signs, sturdy mustaches and lips on a stick, fun super hero masks, stunner shades, fun digital probs and more.Of course you can add any of your own props onto our prop table, but we supply plenty!
If something malfunctions, you have to fix it
We are always there to make sure things run smoothly
Oh no! Is that your background blowing away in the wind? Are those storm clouds? Did your camera flash break? Think about how we would have been able to help if you had hired Clear Choice Photo Booth. Although issues for us are very rare, when they do come up all of our attendants are trained to handle issues quickly and efficiently. Rain clouds while we’re set up outside? No problem, we’ll find a place indoors and relocate within minutes.
So you want a scrapbook…?
We can provide you with a scrapbook by the end of the night
One of the most exciting parts of a photo booth rental is the creation and presentation of a scrapbook at the end of the night. This is a book full of photos and messages from your guests to you. It is one of our most desired products and is included in most of our packages. We’re not really sure how a DIYer could pull this off, so if you’ve done it before please let us know! However, we wanted to share this extra piece of information with you in case you were considering making your own booth. It’s just one more thing to consider!
um, how are we going to get all the pictures?
We will upload all of your pictures the next business day
If you’re DIYing your photo booth you have a lot to think about… Like how are you going to get the photos? Will you ask people to post them online with a #thebigparty14, hoping everyone has a smart phone and remembers to attach the hashtag? Will you leave out your $500 camera so you have access to them all later? (Dangerous!) Or will you provide disposables, praying the photos come out when you eventually decide to develop them? When you hire Clear Choice Photo Booth, whether or not you’ve ordered a scrapbook or not. All of your photos will be online for you and your guests to access the very next day. With online access, you and your guests will be able to view, print and download as many photos as you want!
Your friends have to take your photo
We take your photo
Most DIYers do a great job saving money: they only get what they need. Or what they think they need. DIYers are probably not going to outsource a photographer to take photos of guests at their event, leaving either themselves, a guest, or a potential guest to take the photos. If that’s the case, then someone is going to feel left out…When you hire Clear Choice Photo Booth, your rental comes with an attendant who not only sets up our professional photo booth, but mans it so that your guests can have fun taking as many photos of themselves as you want. (Plus your guests will get to watch themselves through our screen inside the booth!)
Unless you have your clunky printer set up, there will be no printed photos
We give your guests a copy of their photos within 60 seconds of their session
If you are considering a DIY photo booth, have you thought of how you will print photos for your guests to take home? Will you buy a few extra cords to connect your printer to your camera? What happens if you run out of ink? Or paper? This is something to seriously consider if your debating on whether to DIY your photo booth. Clear Choice Photo Booth rentals come with a high quality printer that prints within 60 seconds. Double prints are included in every package, with an a la carte option of prints for everyone. Plus, you get to choose your custom design that shows up on every photo strip, featuring whatever colors and texts you want! You don’t want to deny your guests a fun party favor to take home, do you?
If we have convinced you that a DIY photo booth might not be the way to go, then feel free to contact us if you have any questions or to reserve your event. For more updates and information, you can find us on Instagram and like us on Facebook.
In the midst of summer bridal show season and we’ve had so much fun meeting soon-to-be newlyweds! We love getting the opportunity to show off to you! Clear Choice Photo Booth is nationwide, and we are attending many bridal shows all throughout the country. If you’re engaged, come check us out at a bridal show nearest you!
We provide many things for you and your guests when they visit us at a bridal show. We like to give you as much as we can as you’re deciding on which photo booth rental company. Here is a list of reasons to visit Clear Choice Photo Booth at a bridal show.
You get to try us out.
Not only is this the most fun part of visiting Clear Choice photo Booth at a bridal show, but it is also the most important. You can ask as many questions as you want (we love answering questions, by the way!), but the true test will be how you feel about the experience when you use the booth. How does the attendant assist each session? What is the quality of the photos? How long does each session take? You will experience the answers to these questions—and more—first hand when you try us out.
You get show-exclusive discounts.
We have some amazing discounts and giveaways at the bridal shows we attend, which you can only get if you come to the show and meet us face-to-face. Don’t hesitate to come talk to us, because you’ll often find that after we ask a few questions we can give you specific information on the discounted price depending on your wedding date. Often times we’ll also hold some sort of giveaway, whether it’s a raffle or part of a bouquet toss or something equally fun!
You get to experience what your guests will.
When you attend a bridal show you are a guest, just as those who you have invited to your wedding. You are not stressing out about little details and it is not the biggest night of your life. You are just enjoying your time with friends or family or your fiance, browsing around and eating great food. So when you come across a photo booth, your mind can be focused on the fun and not making sure all of your guests are happy. What you experience in the photo booth at a bridal show is similar to what your own guests can experience at your wedding: undivided fun.
You get a keepsake of your fun wedding-planning day.
There are a lot of goodies when you attend bridal shows! But it’s not often that you’ll find something customizable, just for you. For our bridal shows we provide everyone in the photo booth with a print of the photo strip, just as you would get with each of our wedding packages. So everyone can take home a memory of the bridal show they attended with you. But don’t worry, we have business cards for you too!
You can reserve a booth on the spot.
Often the discounts we provide at bridal shows are for a limited time only. This encourages you to book at the show, to ensure that we will be available for your wedding day. You don’t need to have all of the details set. We are very flexible with changes, and you don’t need to pay everything up front. We ask for a small deposit, you receive a large discount, and then the remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the wedding. You will be able to talk face-to-face to a specialist while reserving your booth. We’ll be there answering any questions you may have and recording as much detail as you provide.
One word: PROPS
Props can really liven up a photo booth session. We have so many unique props that you can only get from Clear Choice Photo Booth, and coming to our bridal show allows you to view them and try them out. You will see how much added fun props can bring to a photo booth rental. We have beautiful props that fit the theme of your wedding! Not everyone enjoys photos, but props are great icebreaker to help guests feel more comfortable.
You can see what your spouse-to-be would look like with a mustache.
Maybe you already have your heart set on a photo booth, but your fiance may not be on board. We’ve got quite a few super hero masks, some fun signs and tons of mustaches in case they want to see what they would look like with some hair under their nose. Snap some pics in the photo booth, give them a copy of the printed photo strip, and voila, you have successfully showed them how fun a photo booth would be for you and your guests.
You get one-on-one time with one of our wedding specialists.
If you have questions you have, you can ask! Any doubts you have, you can tell us! Details on the wedding you want to share, you can share with us! You get as much one-on-one time that you need for us to provide as much information as we can to make your decision easier. You might have what you believe to be a potential conflict. We can let you know how we can work around certain things and how we are up for a challenge! If you see us a bridal show and you have considered a photo booth rental for your wedding, please don’t hesitate to come by our booth and talk to us.
You can explore what we offer.
We offer much more than we let on. Aside from the fun props and amazing printed photo strips, we also have available personalized scrapbooks, GIF booths, and so much more. We often bring several of these items with us so that you can view them yourself. We love sharing our scrapbooks, full of photo strips and messages and well wishes from guests of past events. Also demonstrated is our GIF booth, as well as a book of our many photo strip designs.
You get to talk to us at a bridal show.
This is kind of mentioned earlier on the list, but we thought we’d repeat it so that it is really clear that we love talking to engaged couples. Not only do we love answering your questions, sharing information and giving you discounts, but we love hearing details about your wedding, talking with your friends and family, and getting to know you. We have so much fun because of you, we highly encourage you to visit us at our next bridal show!
We have many upcoming bridal shows, we are looking forward to meeting all of the newly engaged couples. Have you seen Clear Choice Photo Booth at a bridal show? What was your favorite part of the event?

Why you definitely need to check out The Dress Rack
Yay! You’re getting married!
When you’re a bride-to-be, that means you found The One, right? What about the dress? Wedding gown shopping can seem like a daunting task to some brides.
Researching styles and designers… Visiting several shops… Measuring… Ordering… Patiently waiting months and months…
If you’re a bride with a longer timeline and lots of patience, that’s great! If you’re a bride that would love the instant gratification of finding the gown, and taking it home that day… we met your match.
Introducing The Dress Rack.

Who is The Dress Rack?
The sister store of Medina’s well-known The Dress, The Dress Rack was born in January and has partnered with several bridal dress boutiques to provide designer bridal gowns that a bride can carry out of the store same day for a smaller price. All of the gowns are brand new, tags on, unaltered and ready for you to come play dress up in.
All of the most popular bridal dress designers are featured: Stella York, Essence of Australia, McKayla, Calla Blanche, Martina
Julia, The Dress Rack’s Lead Consultant, was kind enough to meet last week and talk about how The Rack is a different kind of bridal shop experience.
The Dress is widely known for giving brides-to-be a five star experience when shopping for their designer gowns, and The Rack is no exception. When you visit The Rack, you will have a dedicated and knowledgable consultant, and the opportunity to sort through the racks of beautiful gowns available at their leisure. Julia advises to come in with an open mind. She says many brides come in just to look, but wind up leaving the store with a gown they didn’t expect to fall in love with. Since all of the dresses are sold off the rack and are not guaranteed to be there the next day, its never too early to look.
The Five Star Experience with a Bonus
Every detail in the shop has been carefully considered to give every bride a personal and beautiful experience. After trying on your first round of gowns, you’ll have the opportunity to keep browsing the racks after putting on the adorable robe provided in the fitting room, while your friends and family will be able to relax in the charming and comfortable space. And when you find the dress of your dreams, The Rack celebrates you with a champagne toast, a goody bag, and the opportunity to take a photo with their adorable sign that reads “I found and love The Dress!”
To complete your wedding day look, of course there are lots of accessories to try on with your gown. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, belts, hairpieces, and veils. Even if you’ve already bought your gown elsewhere, Julia says she can still set you up with an appointment to try your gown on in the store to pair it with jewelry and other accessories so you know everything will look perfect together.
Inventory is constantly changing with new dresses coming in frequently. Brides typically come in with a budget of about $1000. You will find most dresses ranging from $650-1600, give or take. And although The Rack only carries bridal gowns, if you purchase the gown of your dreams, a 10% off all bridesmaid dresses discount is available for you at The Dress!
Get more info about The Dress Rack here:
Located: Lower Level, 281 S Court St, Medina, OH 44256
To be able to provide the best possible service, Julia strongly recommends making an appointment before stopping in to look.
Hours for The Dress Rack:
Sundays – Closed
Mondays – 12 – 8pm
Tuesdays – 12 – 8pm
Wednesdays – 11am – 5pm
Thursdays – 12 – 8pm
Saturdays – 10 – 4pm (by appointment only)

What’s happening in Cleveland, lately?
Sooooo you know what takes up the majority of your photo and barely gets any love? Your backdrop! Everyone loves props and a good pose, but you can’t forget to consider backdrops in the overall look of not only your photos, but how it will look in your event space. For example, if you’re hosting a garden party wouldn’t a solid black backdrop look out of place? How about a lovely watercolor floral wreath instead?
Enter… (drumroll please….. no really, drumroll……)
Six new pretty backdrops available now from our Cleveland office!
These are just quick iPhone snaps as soon as we received them, so you’ll have to stay tuned for snazzier pictures of them in action, but we were so excited we had to share them with you ASAP.
Can you imagine the pretty themes and spaces you can bring these into?!
Watercolor Winter Backdrop
White Weathered Wood Backdrop
Watercolor Floral Wreath Backdrop
Vintage Polka Dot Backdrop
Bokeh Autumn Backdrop

What do you call it when two cookies from the same sheet fall in love?
A batch made in heaven!
Lace Frosted Cookies
DIY Decorating Cookie Kits!
Perfect Cinco De Mayo Cookies
Camera for Clear Choice Photo Booth!
The Wizard of Oz would love these
Thank you favors for your guests sweet enough to eat.
So let’s talk kiddies at the wedding, how are you planning to keep them occupied during the reception? I’ll bet cookie decorating kits didn’t cross your mind, but they’re pretty genius right? Sarah from Custom Cookies by Sarah M visited us this week and she told us all about how you can incorporate cookies into your wedding, and cookie kits were just one of a million things you can pick and chews.
Edible cookie box for the proposal.
What’s sweeter than popping the question? Enjoying your first moments as an engaged couple with a one of a kind cookie-built ring box!
“Proposing” to your bridal party with cookies.
Your “I Do” Crew can’t say no with this delicious way of letting them know you want them to stand by you while you tie the knot.
Give your guests a sneak peek at The Dress.
This is especially fun for Bridal Showers! Cookies can be made as an exact replica of your dress right down to the smallest detail, an adorable way to bake your guests’ day a little cuter.
Welcoming your out of town guests.
Even better, theming them to the city where your wedding is taking place. Cleveland Rock and Roll Hall of Fame cookies? Yes, please. Palm tree shaped cookies for a beach destination wedding? Your guests will feel appreciated, and will love a pick-me-up after their long trip.
Save the Dates and Invites.
I mean, yeah, they’ll need to take a photo to keep the information before devouring but, with cookies that cute of course they’re already Instagramming the creativity of a cookie as an invitation.
For the littles
Decorate your own cookie kit.
These are brilliant! Your smallest guests will love getting to stretch their own creativity at the reception and their parents will know you’re one smart cookie.
Remember paper dolls?
How about cookie dolls? Same concept, but sweeter! This can also be used to add a little sugar to asking your flower girl to join in on your special day.
And of course, for the Wedding Day
You’ve seen cookies as wedding favors, but we bet you haven’t seen cookies step up their game in this way. With the recent improvements in technology Sarah says, “You can make anything into a cookie.” Custom shapes to capture the way the met your fiancé. Metallic icing that perfectly matches your wedding colors (we see you, rose gold.) Hand-painted watercolor decorations. Cookies have never been prettier as wedding favors.
Speaking of favors, why not put them to work? There’s nothing better than a guest finding their seating than with a handmade cookie spelling out their name.
Three Dimensional Centerpieces.
So remember when Sarah said anything can me made into a cookie? She wasn’t exaggerating. For example, if succulents are in your floral theme they can absolutely be made into an edible center piece your guests will be talking about for weeks. Or a December wedding can be complimented in a 3D winter scene complete with sugary snow.
No, you read that right. Actual cookie flowers! They’re beautiful, they’re hand painted, and completely unique! And who else can say they got to eat their bouquet after their wedding?
As you can tell, Sarah’s creativity when it comes to including cookies in your big day is endless. Her advice to brides is to never be afraid to ask for something out of the box, or something you’ve never seen. If you can dream it, she can find a way to make it happen.
Not only will your cookies look absolutely stunning, your guests will rave about how delicious they are. Sarah does all of the decorating completely by hand herself out of her bakery in Akron.
