    We did the open air and it was a huge hit! I think I would prefer open air as a guest so that lots of people can join. We had pictures with like 10+ people in them and they are hilarious.

    TXbride2015:  Based on your poll choices, are you afraid that the open air photo booth would distract from your reception?

    TXbride2015:  I voted open. 


    It it looks like we have a similar photo booth (rockstar is what we have reserved) I think that’s what we will be doing too!

    I voted for open. We had one at my wedding last Friday… and it was a hit! It was located right near the dance floor, so it kept both busy. I had thought she’d set up in the back corner, but only needed a small amount of space and where she put it up – it was perfect. I don’t think it distracted from anything. We ended up with a TON of photos taken, and also get copies of them all.

    TXbride2015:  Open air. Our DJ is providing the photo booth and he is giving us an option, so FI and I chose open. I tried it out at a bridal show and with the enclosed option, my mother, BM, and myself could barely fit. It was very tight and cramped. I have a massive group of friends, so I could see someone getting left out. Plus, my DJ has really icky green screens for an enclosed photo booth that I totally did not want. I plan on making my own, instead.

    I went with an open air photo booth although mine was a DIY because I had all of the equipment, prior to getting married I trialed it at five different occassions and am still using it a year later as a part of my husband’s DJ business.  Open Air gets attention and people love it.
