    That’s what were doing too. No one is going to miss the favor. Everyone just throws them out – most weddings people don’t even remember to take them. Save the money and the time.

    I think it depends on they type of guests you are having. I considered it, but most of our guests are going to be older and we are only having a max of 50 guests, so for us, it wouldn’t be worth it. Instead, I am making two different types of vanilla and am also going to make two different types of cookies to go with the vanilla with the recipes for each. I can’t think of one person in our group that doesn’t like to bake, so for us, I think the favors I chose will be perfect for our guests.

    We had a professional photobooth and guests got to keep their photo so we skipped the favors.  I know we had some guests who didn’t take the opportunity to get a photo made but that’s their choice.

    I’d skip the favors and just have the photo booth.  I agree that most people don’t care about the regular favors.

    We’re doing it too and normally i would say no other souv. necessary, but i had already purchased souveniers prior to renting the booth so i’m giving them out also.

    It’s not actually a vote-able option but I think it’s totally okay to skip the traditional favor 🙂

    You can definitely use the photobooth as your favor!  You forgot to include that as a voting option : )  I remember how excited I was when we first went to a wedding with a photobooth… 3 years later, the pictures are still on our fridge!  I don’t even remember favors from other weddings.

    I vote photobooth! If they get to go in anytime, and keep the copies, then it’s MORE than enough. I’d prefer that to a candle or something edible.

    I personally don’t believe that you have to have a favor.

    With that being said, if you’re going to get a photobooth, I would consider the type of guests you’re having. Personally, if I went to a wedding that had a photobooth, I wouldn’t automatically think that the photobooth was the favor for the guests. I would just think it was something to do, but in the same instance, I wouldn’t miss another favor if it wasn’t there.

    I think a photobooth would be awesome, but I don’t think you should try to categorize it as a favor. However, I don’t think you need a traditional favor in addition to the photobooth.

    We are doing the Photo Booth as well at our wedding in lue of traditional favors and just to make sure we will get everyone over to it we went to 123print.com and i made a business card say “Thank you for sharing our special day with us. Please visit the photo booth and take home a fun momento from our wedding.” I got like 200 for $15.45 with shipping included. There will be one at each place setting at the hall just so everyone knows to take a min and go to the photo booth that way we get full use of the booth. 


    123print.com has great designs for the business cards too. It does take some time to make all the font the same size but it i love how they came out!


    I hope this helps!

    We are planning to do photo booth favors.  The only “traditonal” favors I like are the ones you can eat.  Really, what am i going to do with another tiny picture frame or something of that sort.  At least the photo booth is fun and you can have some silly pictures of yourself!
