Hello fellow bees, I am hoping to get some input about which favor idea I should go with. I am having a large wedding of 350 people including lots of kids and I am torn between renting a photobooth or having a candy bar? If you had either of these items at your wedding how did you guest like them? Thanks.

As a guest, I would perfer a photobooth. You can keep the photo forever as a memory of the wedding. Candy, once eaten is gone.

I think a photo booth would be a lot of fun. Some kids tend to go wild when they have too much sugar, which might make it harder for parents to keep an eye on them. The candy bar sounds really fun too though, all those colors, and everyone likes candy!

Thanks, I think I will go with the photobooth it would be fun to have pictures instantly that you can remember the day by. There will be so many other sweets that a candy bar might be going overboard with sugar for my particular event 🙂

I love the idea of a photobooth. It’s fun for the guests, and they can get a picture that will last much longer than candy. And you can make an album with all your copies!

Photobooth for sure. People of all ages can enjoy that whereas I know most of the elderly folks I know do not care for candy. That said, there may be a long line for 350 guests with one photobooth.

Photobooth! I’ve been to a few weddings that had one and they were SO much fun. My Fiance and I are deff doing a photobooth.

Definitely a photobooth! They’re so fun and your guests can pile into them and take loads of pictures! It’s a great way for your guests to keep a token of your wedding. Candy doesn’t last, and is something they can get themselves. A picture is a moment to be treasured ^_^

Our candy buffet was only feasible (and affordable) because we only invited 65. I couldn’t imagine doing one for 350!
Photobooth. We just had our photogs set up a prop table in a corner and they took some HILARIOUS photos instead of renting one of the super over-priced ones from a rental company.

i really want a candy buffet but i think that is because i am inviting a lot of families with young children, i am hoping to set up a kiddie corner, with some activities and sweets, in the hope that only the kids will eat the sweets, it’s not overly popular in the UK so i think i can get away with just providing candy for the kids.
i would also love a photo booth too but it is just not going to happen with my budget, but i have fell on my feet with this one, my FSIL’s friend is studing photography and is trying to get a portfolio together, she has asked if she can photograph my wedding for free, i have said yes and she will be doing a photo booth style session at the reception. (i will give her some money for her time, i’ve seen some of her work and she is a natural) and my official photographer has agreed that this can happen 🙂

With a party that size, a photobooth would be perfect. You could also have a book set-up where guests can clip one of their photos, tape it in and write something. Doubles as a fun guest book!

The photobooth! Candy bar is not for everyone, plus, I don’t ever eat hard candy so unless you have gummy bears and chocolate bar I would not get any. I suppose others would skip it. Plus, it can be a mess to pick up a spilled jar of candy
