I didn’t have one, but at all of the weddings I’ve been to that DID have one, the photobooth was in use for the whole length of the reception. But what really matters is…can you afford to have it for four hours?

The thing to keep in mind is that it will get more popular, and the pictures will get funnier, as the evening goes on and more drinks are consumed (assuming it’s not a dry wedding). So it doesn’t make sense to have it for the beginning of the reception but not the end. I would have it for the whole time if possible.

If you haven’t hired a photographer yet for your wedding, you should try and look at photographers who have a photobooth add-on to their wedding packages. My fiance and I’s wedding photographer offers a photobooth as a add-on for our package. We get it for 4 hours and it was an additional $500 to the cost. The best part is that our photobooth has a live person behind a camera who is taking the photos, the props are provided, and there is an online gallery posted a week after the wedding that guests can log onto and purchase prints if they choose to do so. It was also reccomended by our photographer to put the booth right by the bar if you are having an open bar. Apparently booze and photo booths are a great combo for some awesome and funny pictures. Cool

@lovelylight99:  This is how I do photo booths. 🙂

They are always a big hit. I also match the backdrop to the wedding colors.

I would try for 4 hours.  Or if you are doing 2, set it up so it is a bit later in the evening.  I don’t think you need more than 4 hours.  Obviously, there is no need for the photobooth while dinner and the cake cutting are going on, etc.  I would put it at a point when people have already started to get into that “party mode” with drinking and dancing because the pictures are more fun at that point.  I am thinking of having mine from 8-midnight or 7:30-11:30pm
