Abacus Photo Booth Deal for NJ Brides Abacus Studios and Amazon Local!



I posted previously that I receive many photo booth deals but  I only post the ones that I feel produce quality work and who use real photo booths (not just a curtained area with a photo that looks like it was produced fifty years ago …with a lightbox…trust me…I’ve seen some!). I have to say that after researching and speaking with the representatives of Abacus Wedding Studio,  I feel comfortable recommending this photo booth deal from Amazon Local! Abacus Wedding Studios has also received full five-star reviews on Wedding Wire  (my go to review site) and other wedding sites.

I spoke with the  Abacus Photo Studios to find out the details of this package. They were very friendly and helpful too (an added bonus). There are so many great included and add-on customization options that won’t break the bank. Your guests would love to participate and walk home with these strips as favors! You can contact Abacus Wedding Studios first to make sure that your date is available and to purchase add-ons to the package. Be sure to mention that For Beer Budget Brides sent you!

Here’s the deal:

If you sign up for Amazon Local here (it is free and works just like Groupon and Living Social), you will be eligible to purchase the following deal from Abacus Wedding Studios for a photo booth rental!

3 Hour Photo Booth Rental from Abacus Wedding Studios for $595, 50% off the regular price of $1,200!

Package includes:

– 3 hour photo booth rental (this is a real boardwalk style photo booth, easy to set-up and take away!)

– three poses per photo session

– 2 strips per photo session

– a booth operator

– You choose a song of your choice to play inside the photo booth…AWESOME!

– promotional value expires November 27, 2013

*  box of props $95

(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! =)
