I think that’s silly- you can even ask them and be like “hey where’d you rent your photobooth from.”  Lots of people do them- its not copying if a lot of people do them.

So many people have them so it isn’t copying his friend. They are so much fun and make for great photos that a photographer just can’t replicate.

He needs to understand how popular this is. Add a poll to the question asking who has had or who is having them and then show it to him. He will see how popular it really is 🙂

@red_rose: make a new post. you don’t want anything that’s too old. it won’t show a good depiction since this just recently became popular

I kinda do understand your Fiance, but only a tiny bit. if his friend is the 1st to do it in your circle then thats why your Fiance is worried that they may think you guys are copying them. But at the end of the day, who cares. photobooths are all over the internet so I dont think it matters.

We didn’t tell anyone we were planning to have a photobooth and it was just a fun surprise for all our guests.  What about just not talking about it and having it there for the guests to enjoy?  

Personally, I don’t think it’s worth the effort if you can’t get Fiance on board.  I personally think his reasoning is silly, but I’m sure he doesn’t feel that way! 🙂

Do something that they didn’t do.  Have funny props or a unique backdrop.

I would get a different kind of photo booth.  There is this one that takes many pictures and it gets put into a flip book.  It’s really cool!  Then it’s different.

ETA: I found a rental place with info about it.  It’s called a photo flip book rental.

That is silly.  theyre major popular these days and every city has a few rental companies that do professional services.  Every city!  This was not her idea!  I’ve been to a couple weddings that had them and were totally fun!  Not a must have but still awesome!

Maybe he didn’t like the photobooth your friends had? After all, if he really enjoyed it, he probably would want to copy it. Maybe you can figure out what he didn’t like about it and find a type of photo booth that is better. There are different set ups and backdrops which can make a difference.

My Fiance said it was silly and for kids and who would want to use it? He also said that there would be a line to it and no one would be on the dance floor. It was too expensive and it was this that and the other. He managed to blame WB too in his rants. I went behind him and got it because I KNOW him. Well, when we went to the mall, we got into a photobooth for the first time and he had so much fun. Oh well….By The Way, I hope my lady shows up. I keep having nightmares she doesn’t come and my Fiance ends up laughing at me. Have you read Mrs. Cupcake’s recaps? She got me into Photobooths! And we are keeping ours a surprise for the guests. No one else knows.

You could make the photobooth your own by having handmade props or a cool background.  I think that would be a good solution….you wouldn’t be copying their wedding…you’d be inspired by it.
