    I personally love photobooths at weddings. They are always so much fun.

    We had a photo booth and it was THE best decision we made. Everyone still comments about how much fun they had and that the photo booth made it even better.

    I LOVE them.  When we first got engaged, it was something I was super excited about, so we picked one and signed a contract pretty early in wedding planning.  Towards the end of planning, I was starting to regret it because the budget was getting tight and I realized I could’ve saved myself a good chunk of money if I had not signed up for the photobooth.  But after the wedding, I was SO glad we had it!  Everyone had so much fun with it!  If this is an option with the company you’re working with, make sure you get a scrapbook for it (or do one yourself).  I have so much fun looking through my book!

    Best decision we made for our wedding.  The booth pics are some of my favorites from the day.

    Enough said.  :) HAHAHA

    I don’t think a nay could exist with photo booths! :)

    Love them!  We couldn’t afford one, so we did a DIY photo guestbook thing, and we love the pics we got from it!  I’m sure an actual photobooth would have been even more awesome :)

    I’ve never been to a wedding with one, but we’re having one, so obviously I think they are a yay! I don’t really get how they can be a nay though – if someone doesn’t like it, they don’t have to go participate in it.

    The only nay I can think of is that some people think they are “played out” or “overdone,” but I only know of one wedding in my social circle that has had one, and I’ve never been to a wedding with one. Also, their fun-ness doesn’t wear off after one time. Is dancing at a wedding overdone?

    I think people who think they are overdone are often people who have been reading way too much about weddings! If you read about weddings online – yeah, they’re everywhere. But as a % of weddings they are actually at, it’s pretty low.

    I don’t like them at all.  It’s a wedding, not an amusement park.
