I am having a photobooth at my wedding, and since I am trying to save money where I can, does a guest copy of a photobooth pic suffice as a favor? I definitely dont want the guests to feel like they are missing something–not that favors generally get a lot of attention anyway, lol. An alternative would probably be something edible. Opinions??

That’s what we’re doing. 🙂 I don’t see why not.

I personally don’t care for the usual favors, edible or not, so a photobooth picture is enough for me! These are the only things Darling Husband and I keep from people’s weddings and we keep ours displayed yearround.
I know some bees spring for cool packaging for the photostrips, but I wouldn’t miss them if they weren’t available.

We used photo booth as our favors and people LOVED it! They dont go to waste, favors to me are a waste of money they are never used or just left on tables no one left photos behind and it was so much fun

I went to a wedding that gave photo booth pictures as favors and I loved it 🙂

Yep. I was at a wedding last year and that, and a fan (it was late August in MD) were the favors. It was great, I have my pic on our fridge.

Yes. My favors are nothing because I usually end up throwing them away anyway.

Absolutely!! Most people don’t want to take home trinkets, and pictures are way more fun than something edible that is gone in 30 seconds 🙂

“does a guest copy of a photobooth pic suffice as a favor?” — why yes, yes it does.

Absolutely. We are also having a photobooth for our wedding but for our Save the dates we did photobooth pictures and had them mailed in a changeable magnent so our guests could switch out our picture for theirs once they have one taken in the booth at our wedding. The magnents were bought from the same company doing the photobooth and were reasonably priced. I have also seen photostrip frames you could buy on ebay or etsy that people put with the photobooth as a favor for pretty cheap!

I received a pic from the photobooth, and I didn’t think of it as a favor…but I also wouldn’t be upset if it were the only thing I got. I will say though that at this particular wedding, they only printed 2 copies of the photo. One went into an album for the bride and groom and the other was for us. The problem arose when we did group photos. There was an awkward moment when they only gave us the one copy and we had to decide who got to keep it. If they are truly favors, then you should print one for everyone that’s in the photo. Just my opinion.

Unless the favors are cash I don’t want them. LOL The photobooth, however, is a different story. I think they’re cool.

I personally wouldnt take a photobooth pic but I do think it counts as a favor. You can never please everyone with the favors and if you are already spending on the photobooth then those are definitely enough!

that’s exactly what we did and everyone loved it! as someone else mentioned, it can be a little awkward when 7 people take a picture and then have to figure out who gets to keep it, but most companies provide a cd with all the pictures that were taken, so you can always e-mail the photos to anyone who wants a copy 🙂

Thanks everyone, I definitely feel better about it–Luckily the photobooth company I am using allows for unlimited photos all night so even if there are 7 people in the pic they can always go back in for more! 😉
