Make Special Events More Fun

  • Bring blown-up headshots of invited guests who couldn’t make the event. Encourage other guests to pose for photos with them.

  • For a more elegant touch, bring a copy of the invitation so you can photograph it at a table setting or near a floral arrangement.

  • Think of a quirky item from the past—such as a ratty concert T-shirt, an old sports uniform, or a stuffed animal—that reminds you of the hosts or the guests of honor. Bring it and let guests hold it (or even wear it) in pictures.

Get Creative with a Portable Optical Disc Drive

  • A montage of photos and videos backed with a playlist of music from the event

  • A corporate-style slide show with photos from the event and charts depicting poll results—sample question: Who delivered last night’s worst karaoke performance?

  • A fake documentary about the event—extremely serious narration is optional

  • Your own dance competition “TV show” with video clips of some of the weekend’s best (or funniest) dancers, complete with ratings from judges
