I’m torn between having a photobooth and a caricature artist at our reception! We’re having 100 guests (there’s an artist that can do that many caricatures in 3 hours). Each costs about the same, but I don’t want to have both. Which would you pick?

I would’ve loved to have had a photobooth at my wedding, it just wasn’t in the budget. While I think caricatures are fun, I feel guests would have more fun with a photobooth.

I would choose a photobooth. Caricatures are fun and silly, but the props and having 10 people photobomb the photobooth makes for a super fun time. I am also, more likely to display my photos on the fridge or around the house with a printed pic.

I choose Caricatures. However… you might need some way to manage the ‘line’ because you certainly wouldn’t want all your guests waiting in a line all night and obviously the drawings take a lot more time than a photobooth. I think caricatures is more unique… i see photobooths at all weddings now and I’m personally not a fan (making silly faces at a camera isn’t my thing…). Either way you get a keepsake though.

baileyjosephine: Photobooth, Caricatures I feel are more for a kids party.

baileyjosephine: The money we spent on our photobooth was hands-down, by far the best money we spent on the entire wedding, and I’m serious. The photobooth gave all of us hours of laughs at the time, and also was a way to get a photo of every single guest that really continue to be a source of smiles. Worth every penny. I’d vote photobooth a million times over.

Definitely photobooth. Ours was packed all night long and it was a huge hit. I don’t think I’d sit there and do a caricature though.

baileyjosephine: photobooth. Its quick, fast and easy. For a caricature, you have to sit down and wait for the artist to draw – missing some of the party.

baileyjosephine: They’re both cool, BUT I would imagine a caricature artist would take up much more time. With a photobooth guests can come and go as they please w/out waiting on line. Plus you can do more with it and do it more than once!

We are doing Caricacture artists. Are you sure that one artist can do 100 in 3 hours? We were told each artist can do 8-10 an hour. We have 2 coming to our wedding and we are expecting 60 guests.

dewingedpixie: we have an artist available who does 60 second caricatures, he should be able to do all of our guests in the allotted time. that’s why I’m so torn!

Photobooth! Such fun, to me personally, caricatures don’t appeal to me so I wouldn’t get one done, but I would go in a photobooth!

Photobooth. Much more fun for the guests. Not least because they won’t have to stand in line or sit down and be drawn. You’ll also get a great, and different perspective, of the day.

baileyjosephine: i don’t like the style of most caricature artists… mostly i can’t tell a resemblance to the person portrayed… it’s like “oh… you like baseball, so i draw the male figure with a giant baseball bat” (and it will look so similar to the other person portrayed, who’s a recent high school grad, so has a giant hat…)

I voted for photobooth. I saw that you found an artist who does a 60 second caricature which is pretty cool, but I think a photobooth would get your guests mingling and being silly together a bit more than a caricature artist would. We had a photobooth, and while DH wasnt totally on board when we booked it, he agreed that it really livened up our reception and everyone loved it. We have really great (and hilarious!) pictures of people we’d never have pictures of otherwise.
