For those of you that have used photobooths before for weddings, do you think it will/took away from part of the reception?? Fiance was concerned that it might…i mean it could go both ways, but i wasn’t thinking that it would…do you???

We didn’t have an actual booth – just an informal polaroid area. It was so fun but people really went there when they were tired of dancing for a moment, or needed a drink. We put it by the bar.

GREAT question!! I was wondering the same thing.

I actually love the idea of a photobooth and would really like to do one for our wedding. I don’t think that it would ‘take away’ from the special activities. If you have announcements that you’re doing your special dances, cake cutting etc, then all of your guests will know to pay attention.
I’ve had friends that have done it and all the guests went nuts over it.

I really like the idea of putting it next to the bar. I’m actually strongly considering one because my photography coverage is for 5 hours, so this would make sure I had pictures of guests at the reception. I don’t think it’d all detract from your reception though.

I attended a wedding where the bride and groom had a program planned for the reception, so they timed the photobooth to be outside in the courtyard during cocktail hour and everyone LOVED it. Not only did it keep us busy while the B&G & WP were getting their photos taken, because it was placed outside, everyone paid attention to the reception once we were inside.

I’m not sure what you mean by ‘take away from the part of the reception’, but I had one and it was a huge hit. People used it the whole night. No one used it during cake cutting or dinner or toasts or anything. Without me having to tell them, they knew to do it during the cocktail hour and dancing…

That was one big concern for me. I have been worried that lines may form that keep people off the dance floor. I’d love to hear responses on this… keep them coming!

My boss went to two weddings with photobooths and it was the hit of the night at both. They did it between dancing- but the silliness of it only adds to the fun, and they leave with a great keepsake.

We had a photobooth off of the main floor. Was never worried about that (i mean, we had a football room too that was showing a game lol) but the guests LOVEDDDDD the photobooth! Didnt take anything away from it at all. It was a huge hit. There were always a few people waiting for it, but people would check it out, go dance, then go back. Didnt stop anyone at all from dancing. So fear not, have one!
