Hey everyone! So we are facing a bit of a conundrum with our photo booth, or rather, our venue’s photo booth. We are having our ceremony and reception at a great venue that has an old school photo booth. This is obviously great, as my FH and I love photo booths and were contemplating renting one for the wedding prior to deciding on this venue, as we are hoping to do a photo booth guest book. So onto the problem: the photo booth only accepts cash. How should we go about giving people the $3 they would need to take a strip for the guest book? I plan to let people know they should bring cash in case they’d like to take photos for themselves, but feel uncomfortable asking them to also bring cash to take a picture for our guest book. We aren’t having assigned seating, so I can’t put them with the place cards. Any ideas are welcome!

I think this is where getting a child (maybe a young teen relative?) to help will be key! Put them in charge of the photobooth/guestbook. Give them a bunch of singles, and a glue stick. They can “pay” for your guests, then glue the photos into a book, that your guests can then sign for you.

will there be an attendant at the booth? maybe you can give him/her the money and he can give it the guests as they go to the booth?

I think you should pay for the guestbook photos yourself.Idk how big your reception is,but could you leave cash in the booth for people to spend on photos? I am surprised that a venue would have the type of photo booth that requires payment.

@kariface @lilchicana we hadn’t thought of an attendant but that sounds like a good idea!
@kellmerr we are fine with paying for the photos, we just couldn’t figure out how to give people the money without shoving a wad of cash at them or having people take more than one with that money. The venue isn’t a typical wedding venue (it’s actually a music venue) so they dont have one of the newer no-pay photo booths.
Another idea we had, in case we can’t find a willing attendant, is attaching small envelopes with guest’s names on them to a string with clothespins and then asking them to return their pictures to where their names were. (I saw pictures of something similar to this, but they were using a Polaroid). Does that sound okay?
