Winter Bridal Celebrations at the Palace of Auburn Hills and the Novi Bridal Expo at the Rock Financial Showplace!!
Thank you so much to all the Brides-to-Be, their friends, families, and fiances that came to check out the Qwik Picz Photo Booth this past weekend. Nearly 400 photo strips were taken and printed out and taken home by our guests to the booths we had at the shows for everyone to try out.
The past three days we have already signed up 20+ weddings for this upcoming year and as well as 2011 and 2012. This is far beyond our expectations and due to this overwhelming response many of our dates are filling up quick for the 2010 season. We had anticipated only booking 6 booths out per night, thinking this would accommodate the majority of our customers, but today made the decision to add 4 more booths to the lineup. So keep our phones ringing and when we start booking 10 a night, there will be no hesitation on our part to get a few more booths into the rotation. It is our goal to be able to accommodate every couple that wants a photo booth at their wedding or any party for that matter.
I also want to thank everyone who came back to our booth at the end of either of the long days at the 2 biggest bridal shows of the year to let us know that they were by far the most impressed with our company in regards to quality, friendliness, and of course our pricing.
Thank you again to everyone who came out and if you are interested in checking us out again, check out the upcoming Bridal Shows that we will be at RIGHT HERE. We are very excited for this upcoming year and have many new and exciting announcements to make in the months to come, so stay tuned!!
Best of luck to everyone in the year to come!!

DETROIT, Jan 07, 2010 (Detroit Free Press - McClatchy-Tribune News Service via COMTEX) --The rows and rows of displays by photographers, cake decorators, floral designers and everything else you could possibly want for a wedding nearly overwhelmed Rana Mansour of Sterling Heights, Mich., and her fiance, Rashad Saleh of Dearborn, Mich.
Fortunately, they knew exactly what they'd come to check out at the Brides-to-Be Expo in Dearborn _ photo booths.
Photo booths will be big at weddings in 2010, says Cyd LaChiusa, producer of the Brides-To-Be Shows, one of several presenters of bridal expos that get going in January.
Other trends sure to be popular, according to wedding planners and couples: Cupcakes, lighting that shines the couples' names or initials around the reception hall, live entertainment and dancing to or from the altar.
Expect brighter, richer colors too, a reflection of the brighter economic forecast expected in 2010, says Tom Schoenith, owner of the Roostertail, on Detroit's riverfront.
Brides are requesting jewel tones, Tiffany blue and other brighter colors _ a marked contrast to the more subdued browns and beiges popular last year, says Schoenith, whose establishment has hosted weddings and reception for 52 years.
Julie Raimondi, editor of Brides Michigan magazine and brides.com, says gray will be a popular. "Higher-end grays and neutrals can be incredibly elegant," she says. "I think you'll also see patterned and printed bridesmaids' dresses."
Expect to see brightly colored shoes, she says _ red and bright blue with the white and ivory gowns.
Couples still want beautiful weddings on a budget, but they're going for special touches that reflect who they are and offer lots of fun and memorable moments.
That's why Mansour, 29, and Saleh, 31, plan to have a photo booth.
"It's a great way for everybody who comes to enjoy themselves and get a keepsake from the wedding," says Mansour, a doctor, who met Saleh, a chiropractor, at a get-together with friends about a year and a half ago.
Shayna Goodman, 24, of Livonia, Mich., is also excited about having a photo booth at her wedding to Brandon Kummer, 25, though it won't be until January 15, 2011.
"The photo booths are really awesome and they make a great party favor as well," says Goodman, who won a battle of the bouquet toss at the Brides-to-Be Show and won a three-hour ride from Luxury Limousine of Dearborn.
Generally, guests enter into the booth under the direction of a host at the reception. Two photos pop out _ one for the guest and another that the company compiles into a scrapbook for the bride and groom.
Renting a photo booth and the use of a Web site for posting photos that can be ordered costs about $800.
At lots of weddings this year, look for cupcakes, once seen primarily at kiddie birthday parties.
Donna Anderson, who operates Celebrate with Cupcakes out of her Flat Rock, Mich., home, started baking cupcakes for weddings last year and has done four. She does cupcake trees, cupcake bouquets and cupcake keepsakes, all decorated and filled based on each couple's request.
"Couples like them because they're fun, different and unique," she says.
Cupcakes are under consideration by Katie Zack, 23, of Highland, and Mike Keeler, 25, of Rochester, Mich., for their Oct. 9 wedding.
"Since we're on a budget," Zack says, "I like that cupcakes can be made in our wedding colors and double as centerpieces."

Chelsea Milling Company, the producers of the popular Jiffy food products, had us out to their annual holiday party this past Saturday. What a great party with all types of fun games that kept everyone moving all night. Best of all the line for the photo booth was longer than the line for the bar all night long. Thanks for having us out!!!

We look forward to meeting you wish you the best of luck with all of your wedding planning!!
I just want to send out a special thank you to all of the employees, customers, wedding professionals, family, and friends for making this past year such a great success for Qwik Picz Photo Booth.
We just finished calculating all of the numbers from 2009 and we are happy to say that in our first full year of business we did 100+ events and took over 50,000 pictures. Amazing!! We started off the year with just 1 booth and had 5 going by the end of the year. We are in the process of having 5 more booths constructed right now so hopefully we can accommodate everyone and not have to turn down so many people, as we did this past year because many of our dates filled up so quickly. This far exceeded our expectations and we have every intention to do the same this upcoming year.
We already have just about as many events booked for 2010 as we did in the whole year of 2009 and we are only 4 days in. We hope to keep them coming!!! We still have great specials running for the next couple of months which everyone can take advantage of for your upcoming events this year and next. Be sure to check up on our site for a list of upcoming bridal shows that you can visit us at. As a special thank you for spending your time to come out and see us at any of the bridal shows we have always have special pricing to share with you.
As always, if there is anything that you can share that will help make us better in the future please don't hesitate to pass your comments along.
We wish you the best in 2010 and look forward to having another amazing year!!!
Thank you again....
Thank you to everyone who came out to visit us at our first Bridal Show of the season at the Hyatt Regency this past weekend.
