NJ Photo Booth Deals- from Boardwalk Photo (for use before September 28, 2013)!

The photo booth deal is always one of my favorite deals to post since photo booth packages are fun, include memorable scrapbooks and the pictures can double as favors! However, I only post the photo booth deals that I think appear to produce quality prints (be sure to research before buying). I have seen discrepancies between photo booth companies quality and packages so it’s worth checking out. I passed on posting two deals I received earlier this week because the photos looked like mug shots on the web sites and the other site didn’t have many “samples” of their work!

If I post a photo booth deal, I believe the quality is pretty good. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t research it or checking Wedding Wire or The Knot for reviews.

I think this photo booth deal from Living Social and Boardwalk Photo may be a good buy! Boardwalk Photo only had one sample of pictures which made me wary at first. The pictures also appeared distant. However, I then researched their Facebook page and found great photo samples there and strong reviews. They also received The Knot’s best of 2013 award. So this may be a deal you want to get before it is too late!


Living Social membership is free! You can sign up here!

Right now Living Social and Boarwalk Photo are offering the following package for members:


$495 for the package (50% off the regular price)


3 hour rental



one attendant

It states that props and a scrapbook come along with the photo booth but it is not listed under the deal’s details so you will want to check that they are included.

It also does not include tax or gratuity.

You also will want to check that the date you want is available before you purchase.

The promotional value is only until SEPTEMBER 28, 2013!!! The paid value expires on March 22, 2018.

This company also only travels to Morris and Somerset County including Maplewood, South Orange, Livingston, Summit, Short Hills and Millburn .

(201) NJ Bridal Event in Franklin Lakes, NJ


One of the best parts of planning a wedding is the bridal show. My BFF and I made our rounds when both of us were planning our nuptials and we gained some wonderful vendors, deals, ideas and tasty food and drinks along the way! I also have a friend who won a weekend stay at a spa at a bridal show. They are a great deal of fun and also offer special pricing packages and inspiration for your own DIY projects! This one in Franklin Lakes should be FABULOUS (hello Real Housewives fans…it is Franklin Lakes!). You do have to RSVP here and there is an admission cost but don’t eat dinner and count it as a cheap meal out as you fill up on their appetizers and cocktail hour favorites! You also get a tote bag and a chance to win prizes! =)
