For those of you who had photo booths at your wedding, how long did you have them there? I’m looking at pricing and I’m wondering how long I need it to be at my reception and what is the timing for it? I’m guessing it should be there first thing in the evening so guests can use it right away. Does it take away from people dancing?

i just went to a wedding where they had it from cocktail hour until the end- it was definitely most used during cocktail hour, but people were also in there after dinner. didn’t take away from the dancing (but it was a huge wedding)

We’re doing one. We’re going to have it for 3 hours, beginning at social hour. Props and a scrapbook come with it. According to our planners, photobooths have been a big hit at weddings they’ve done in the past. However, I’ve never been to a wedding that had one. But I’m thinking our guests will get a kick out of it 🙂

We’re having one, but I’m not sure of the cost because my mom booked/payed for it. I think it’s $800 for 4 hours? We’re allowing people to start using it once the reception starts.

I’m doing one and am super excited about it.
I had a friend say not to do them because someone pulled her into the photobooth at their wedding and then they spent a large portion of the wedding taking pictures with all their guests. I think it’s excellent advice not to take pictures in the booth with people, but I’m still going for the booth.
Our wedding hasn’t happened yet, so I can’t know yet what my advice to you is. We have it for 5 hours. I’ll let you know after the wedding. 🙂

We had ours for the whole reception (4 hours). People used it all night long, there was always a line. We had props and a scrapbook too, and it turned out awesome! We had a big wedding, 225 guests, so I don’t think it took away from dancing at all.
I think having it all night was great, because people kept going back over and over, and the pictures got more crazy and funny as the night went on.

we did one but it was DIY so we didnt have to pay for hours – we set up prior to anyone arriving so people could use it during cocktail hour – unfortunately i didnt plan very well our photobooth was in our reception room and our cocktail hour was held in the foyer area…we had ours set up from the time people got there till the end – we had it set up near the bar so people used it while standing in line for drinks – it worked out great and everyone absolutely loved it!
i had about 120 guests and i dont think it took away from dancing either -our dance floor was packed all night

I did a “faux-to-booth” so I kept it up all night until 30 min before the end of the reception. People had no problem doing both that and dancing. It was a HUGE hit, even my grandma got in on the action! Usually I don’t post pics of anyone other than DH and I, but I don’t think she’ll mind 🙂
