I feel like photo booths are so overdone at this point and they’re also kind of pricey. I was planning on doing a DIY backdrop and just setting up an ipad on a tripod but then I’ll have to worry about it all night. A friend suggested having a caricature artist and I was wondering what people thought? Does it feel cheap and tacky? Or is it fun and different?
They can usually do 10-15 caricatures and hour so they will only take 6mins or less per person. So it wouldn’t be a long wait.

I booked one for my upcoming wedding! Everyone I have told about it thinks its different and cool! I am looking forward to it. I booked mine through gigsalad, got a bunch of quotes and booked someone! Personally, I think photobooths are overdone.

I would rather have a photo than a caricature drawing, but that’s me personally. I don’t think it’s tacky at all, just not something I would participate in, and that’s ok! Not everyone would do a photo booth either.

I love the idea. However it must be someone who can do them very quickly so lots of people can have them and they wont have to sit for a long time. Otherwise, i thing it is a super fun idea 🙂

I certainly don’t think it’s tacky, but as a guest it’s just not something I’d be interested in. I’d rather dance and talk to people and snap a selfie than wait in line, then sit there while the artist drew.

I say nay. I dont think its tacky, but I dont know if its wedding appropriate. There WILL be a line for it. 6m pp is a long time. Unless you have like, 20 guests, people will be waiting.
I think guests would probably get more use out of a photobooth (ie different poses, only takes 30 seconds rather than 6m, can get group shots) but yeah. I wouldn’t be interested in waiting 3h for a caricature.

It’s not tacky, but I would not utilize it at a wedding. I would put a photo booth picture on my fridge, but I’m not sure what I’d do with a caricature picture which is considerably bigger.

I think it’s great! So fun!
I went to an engagement party where they had a silhouette cut-out artist, it took him about 3 minutes per person so he did loads!
Here he is finishing up my husbands in the little backing folder you were given, matching it up to face mine 👍

PS that couple also had a photo booth with fun props at their same engagement party so the variety of options for guests to entertain themselves with was really good.

Superfun! I would stand in line for ever if I had to! Super great idea! But then again, I hate do dance so I would be thrilled there would be something else to do at the wedding! no but really, I really think things like that are so entertaining! I would certainly have so much fun at it, both getting my own and having a good laugh at others! 😀

emmagreen482017 : It’s not “tacky” but maybe a waste of money. Would I wait for this… no. Would it be fun at the moment… yes. What would I do with this after… toss it or place in a box forever.
How many people do you know that have a one of these actually framed on their wall? slim to none.

We had caricature artists and it was a hit. This is one from our guests. Our theme was A Midsummer Night’s Dream…
My mom actually had hers framed LOL

I went to a wedding with one about 10 years ago. I did frame it! It was cute (my son and me). It was an outdoor reception with dancing on a deck and kids running around with bubbles and glow sticks, so it definitely fit the mood. It had a (short) line all evening.
