    We’re doing the same thing and have the same number of guests. We’re planning on having them setup before the reception and officially open once dinner service is over. We want to keep it open pretty much the whole time we’re there. I know it will take a lot of people some time to warm up to the idea and the longer you have it open, the more candid and interesting the shots with become (especially with an open bar!). So, we’ll hire one out that will stay the longest possible. I think our photographer might be setting ours up for us, so that should make it easier too!

    we are having our booth run for an hour during cocktails, break during dinner, and run for three hours afterwards. With 150 guests, we hope that will give people enough time to make several visits, as we have unlimited pics.

    We always set up the photobooth after dinner. If you’re limited on hours, 2 should be enough, especially if there is an announcement that photobooth time is limited. Just be sure that you don’t have too many other events happening during those two hours-the photobooth won’t get much attention when you’re cutting the cake, doing the first dance, etc.

    I also like the idea of cocktail hour to give guests something to do, but I have no personal experience to relate for you.
