    A mistake. It isn't worth the money and people wouldn't really use the booth anyways. : (2 votes)

    We went to a wedding with a photobooth and it was busy the ENTIRE night!  Make sure you have props, I was dead set against it but when I saw how much of a hit they were at my friend’s wedding, I added them to my package!

    The key is timing, that they end before things get “messy”, you know the last three songs, booze is flowing, etc….

    I was in a wedding last winter that had one and it went over like crazy. It was busier than the dance floor half the time. My friend had it included in her photography package. The only bad thing was that by then end of the night they ran out of photo paper.  Otherwise it was great! They brought the props and everyone had a blast with it. My friend said it was one of the best things she did for her day.

    I am absolutely having one at my wedding.  even if I have to give up a lot of my crazy ideas for my more traditionally-minded family, this is something I am not giving up!

    @captain plan-it:Greatest idea ever! We had one and it ROCKED. We bought sticky photo corners and put our guest book by the photobooth so people signed our guestbook and left a copy of their photo.

    ABSOLUTELY!  our planner says it is one of the MOST FUN things at weddings. People flock to it , let their hair down a bit and then the couple get a photo album with the pictures and the guests write little notes.  SO much more exciting than just one of those plain books where guests write in their names as having attended!   We are 100% doing it and even though it does cost , if you are crafty, you could try one of the DIY photobooths which would be fun too.

    I was thinking about this, but we’re already on a tight budget.

    I did go to a pretty formal fundraising gala recently – 1920s theme – that had something similar – not a booth, but a vintage-type backdrop and a photog. The photog printed out the pictures right there and put them in a pretty frame. The line was quite long for most of the night.

    I attended a wedding last weekend and they had a photobooth. It was a HUGE hit! It was next to the bar so even when the line got long, there were still other people around to chat with. During and after dinner there was hardly any line. I went in about five times. The pics are awesome! 

    $700 is a good price for a rental. I saw go for it!!! I’m definintely having one!

    My Fiance and I really wanted a photo booth, but renting one just wasn’t in our budget. So we decided to make one! It was really easy and very affordable. I’m hoping it’ll be a huge hit at our wedding!
