I’ll push you over the ledge. $400 sounds great to me, I’d totally go for it!

I’d got for it. Our guests had a blast in the photo booth and kept going back for more. My guy gave us copies of everyone’s picture in a scrap book and had everyone sign it.

@brlabrat:  do it! i honestly thought it was stupid until the last wedding i went to. its so much fun and gives people something else to do than eat or dance. i’m having one for my wedding. the best part is that the company prints two copies of the picture; one goes to the person and the other gets put into a book that the photo booth person makes and has people sign as well. best guest book ever!

We had a wall with props. The guests loved it, it was super popular and as a bonus we have pictures of many friends and family members. Things we may not have had otherwise. It’s super worth it.

Most of my couples who get a photo booth add on say they are easily some of their favorite pics   Do it! No one ever seems to regret it!!

At that price, I’d definitely go for it.  But I recommend you make a point of asking your guests to strike a silly pose for it.  Disk space is cheap. You can select the keepers later.

For extra inspiration, check this out, which someone forwarded me earlier today:

…I only had 56 people TOTAL at my wedding and the photobooth was SOOOO worth it! Not only did I get some amazing photos of my guests, but they got a great little gift to take home that they would actually LIKE!

 

I did take out any props that would cover up the guests face (big sunglass etc). And I had the photobooth people print out two copies, one for the guest and the other for the guest to put in a scrap book for us. They could also write any message they wanted. It was a kick ass guest book! So I guess I”m here to push you over it! It was a great investment IMO.

I was going to say don’t do it and give you reasons, but at that price honestly go for it. Yeah, you’ll get a few photos of people’s boobs, butt, or whatever but you’ll also get other fun ones.
