We’ve booked a photobooth for our wedding, and I found these really cute Photobooth Photostrip holders on Etsy. I mentioned it to my mom, but she thinks we still need to do a something else as a favor.
I thought the photobooth WAS the favor! Guests will be able to take as many pictures as they want, and have a cute little envelope.
What do you think? If you went to a wedding with a photobooth, would you expect something additional as a favor?

I’m getting clear acrylic frames for the photo strips that will serve as both the escort cards and the favor. I mean..the photobooth is really for the guests so I definitely do consider it to be a favor!

I’m planning on doing this for the favors.

@pink0815: I actually really like that idea! 🙂

I am having a photobooth, but I don’t consider it to be a favor – but I’m also not doing other favors. I think favors are annoying and pointless. So – I’m good with calling the photobooth the favor! Those photo holders are cute but seem unnecessary.

I’m also doing acrylic photobooth holder escort card holders/favors 😀 I do think it’s enough to count as a favor, but there’s no problem with having an additional favor if it’s within your budget and you actually want to. Otherwise, frame is totally enough!!

I agree that they’re cute but seem unnecessary. Think about what people will do with the photos when they get home? They might put them in a frame/s or an album, but having the envelope will guarantee that it will either be thrown away, or both the envelope and pictures will get tossed into a drawer or into a pile of stuff or something. =/ I don’t see the use for them. If you want to do a favor, consider a permanent display holder for the photos?

@NAvery: That’s exactly how I feel about favors, which is why I was assuming the photo booth was enough. It’s not that I don’t want to buy something else, it’s just that I hate knick-knacks, and our reception will already have a ridiculous amount of food, so an edible favor just seems like overkill.

I don’t really consider it a favor. One wedding I went to that FI couldn’t attend, I did the booth with friends, and we got one strip for like 6 of us.
But really, there isn’t a need to have a real favor either.

I wouldn’t really consider the photobooth to be a favor, but I don’t really think favors are necessary.
When my fiance and I first got engaged (it still hasn’t been that long, but I mean like within the first few days), we were talking about favors for guests. Since that conversation, we’ve decided not to do them. Most people don’t seem to really like them, so it just seems like a huge waste of money.
That being said … If we can fit it into our budget, we’re going to do a photobooth. It’s a very fun and interactive thing for our guests, and hopefully will allow them to have some fun things to take home. I don’t think the envelopes are necessary, though … If I were a guest, I’d honestly probably not keep it/use it.

It’s not that I would expect something else… but if this is your favor, just make sure it’s a really over-the-top experience! Lots of fun taking pictures and such, you know? Little props and cute envelopes should do the trick.

We’re doing a photobooth, but I don’t consider it the favor. We’re going to get coasters where you can put the photo in, and the photobooth pics are the exact size for it, so it goes together.

For anyone who has ever done a photobooth guest book, or been to a wedding where they had one..
Did they just provide the paper and pens, or where there other “decorative” items to add to the pages (cute frames, paper borders, etc)? One color paper + pens, or multiple colors and patterns?
Anyone have pictures? How did they turn out?
