 Seeing that the selfie craze is this season’s hottest trend, it’s no surprise that the must-have accessory for 2015 is the selfie stick. The extendable rod allows users to take panoramic selfies from a higher angle and has become very popular among tourists. So popular that Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants have started loaning selfie sticks to their guests to help capture the perfect shot on their trip. The hotel brand also encourages social media sharing in a monthly “#AdoreThySelfie” contest for best selfie. Other hotels including JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa are encouraging guests to snap selfies and share their moments on social media for prizes as well.

Museums and artists are also embracing these trendy self-portraits by creating unique selfie opportunities as a way to attract visitors. At the Los Angeles County Museum of Art visitors can now be a part of the museum’s exhibition Faces of America: LACMA Collects, which features a history of the United States through a series of portraits and includes a digital display of selfies by visitors and staff.

It doesn’t stop there! Events have also seen a rise in this culture craze and are including designated areas just for taking selfies. For a party that’s very on trend, consider creating unique selfie stations for your guest to enjoy. There are countless ways to make a stunning station that your guest will love. Think, show stopping, grandiose entrances or floor length mirrors to capture the entire outfit. You can even create a chalkboard backdrop where your guest can write a message, hashtag, or even draw their own background.
