The announcement aims to provide a unique and engaging alternative to the conventional photo booth usually seen at weddings.
The haiku is a form of short Japanese poetry, comprising three phrases with a total of 17 syllables, which tends to capture the essence of a larger idea. Haiku-writing often evokes nostalgia and reminiscence due to it commonly being taught during childhood and in schools.
Haikuists have developed this popular hobby into a personalized entertainment service that allows every wedding guest to take home a treasured souvenir from the day, that they will likely keep forever.
Given just a small piece of personal information or a completely random topic, with no restrictions on subject matter, Haikuists’ writers can create new poems in 30 to 90 seconds.
Two poets attend each event, equipped with vintage typewriters and signage. The haiku cards produced can be branded with the host’s custom logo or message to become homemade wedding favors, or can be used for guestbooks, haiku trees or artwork.
Haiku-writing is a fully inclusive activity which can be enjoyed by everyone, from young children to elderly relatives. Guests are encouraged to express themselves creatively, often inducing displays of affection and tears of laughter.
Haikuists have also enjoyed great success at corporate events, parties and festivals, with former clients including Google, Airbnb and IBM. Founded in 2012, the company now has 30 poets operating at 200 to 300 events annually across 10 cities.
Interested parties are invited to make an inquiry online or call the above-stated phone number to speak to the bookings manager.
The updated services offer couples in NYC a creative and innovative entertainment package to elevate their wedding plans.
A spokesperson for the company said “We are dedicated to experimenting with haiku for the express purpose of providing joy. We look forward to this new epoch of our evolution.”
