    @JrzyGurl:  If it something that you really and it is really important to you (which it sounds like it is) then I suggest going for the option you actually want. It may cost a bit more, but if settle for the option you don’t actually want then the money is just wasted. I’d rather spend a bit more and be happy than spend close to the same amount and feel I settled.

    We had a photobooth and it was great! Some of the best photos from the evening! I think you should go with the second one if that is what you like and you can afford it. (Also, props really encourage people to loosen up and have fun, and are pretty cheap to find – definitely get props!)

    I love the second one. It’s classy, you’re right. But… I have a hard time considering it a true “photobooth”. To me, a photobooth is the little box with the silly props and several pictures on a strip (option1). It depends on the feel you want. If you adore the second one and find the first too cheesy, go for option 2. If the cheesiness and dorky fun is what you want, go for option 1. If something is a top priority for you, why scrimp on it?

    I think if it’s something you really want then go for the second option 🙂

    @JrzyGurl:  The last wedding we went to had a photobooth with props and it was so much fun. I didn’t find it cheesy at all.

    Our group of friends took a mix of “normal” photos and crazy prop photos in the photobooth. I really liked that it printed out the little strip with three photos on it. It really feels like a genuine photobooth then.

    I like the first one but that is because I think those photobooths are really fun. If the second one is more your style, then go for it!

    @JrzyGurl:  IMHO, there are cheesy props and then there are less cheesy props. Both can be fun, and it’s entirely up to you which way you want to go! For our engagement party we had a 1920s theme so we had ‘classier’ props like vintage books with amusing titles, real pipes (surprisingly you can get them online for like $6), a monocle, white feather boa, lace hats, pearl necklaces, candy cigarettes (very cheap and people went CRAZY for them), a top hat, etc. Large ornate empty frames are also great. It provides a completely different feel to someone who uses say, plastic inflatable monkeys and fake pirate hats. Obviously higher-quality props are more expensive, but we found it totally worth it to give people something to play with and made the photobooth something people were curious to check out even if they usually avoid photos. A bunch of stuff I was also able to take from my closet (necklaces, hats, etc.) so it is not even like it cost that much in the end (less than $100 on props). Thrift stores are great places to find cheap props too!

    Oh man! Poll is split down the middle.
    Photobooths should be fun right? I think cheesy screams fun 🙂
    Idk. I vote for the big cheese. I like it better anyway.

    Good luck!
