    Favors are not required. No one will miss them if they aren’t there. That said, most people don’t consider photo booths to be favors.

    I’d rather have a photo than some food that’ll be gone in a second. We already get food as part of the wedding in most cases, anyway.

    We used a photobooth as our favors – we also added a popcorn/candy bar at the last minute for people who might not want to get in the booth. I definitely think it’s enough though!

    Honestly I’ve never been to a wedding with a favor I really liked. I think favors are one tradition that just needs to die. A photobooth is really cool though!

    It is the perfect favor! People like pictures of themselves over candy or another bottle stopper any day! We are having a photobooth, and our seating cards will be photobooth strip holders. That way not only will guests have an awesome picture of themselves, but also a frame to display it in. This costs way more than candy or small gadget that is the typical favor, so it is definitely enough.

    I’ve always wanted to attend a wedding where there was a photobooth.  Surprisingly, I’ve yet to.

    Most people don’t even really notice the favors.  That being said, I of course obsessed about people “judging” any favors when I was in the wedding planning process.  We ended up doing black-and-white suckers (our colors), and a small box of Hershey kisses. 

    I think just having a photobooth is good enough!!  But that’t just me.  At the end of the day, it’s your wedding, so go with what you feel is best!

    I personally dont see a photobooth photo as a favor… Especially these days when everyone has a camera

    We are doing a photobooth and next to it we are having a small to mid sized candy buffet with chinese takeout containers that say “thank you” in our wedding colors. I figure they can get their photos taken and then get candy. That’s it, though.

    I love this idea. We were debating the same thing for our wedding. I am glad you created this poll.

    My parents went to a wedding that had a photobooth (they’d not been to a wedding with one before) and it was the highlight for them.  They thought it was awesome.  Insisted we do something similar.  They still have the photostrip tacked on their bulletin board in the kitchen

    I went to a wedding with a photobooth about a year ago and it was awesome! The photo strips we ended up with are still on our fridge.

    Definitely couldn’t say the same about other favors I’ve come across. Every time I see the photo strips, I am reminded of how much fun that wedding was! Definitely a different sort of memory than just regular pictures taken with a digital camera (especially as various family members kept “crashing” the pictures by jumping under the curtain in the back of the booth!)

    I think that’s a cute favor idea, and I don’t think you need anything else to go with it. Your favor is cool because not only is it a gift (a photo), but it gives guests some entertainment as well.

    i’d MUCH rather take pictures in a photobooth than get a favor!
