I love the idea of a photobooth, our clients who choose to have a photobooth are never disappointed!

If the price of ink and paper are too much for your budget, have you thought of making the photos your favor?  Then you can use that part of your budget for ink and paper, and your guests get a favor they will cherish and keep!  We use an HP photo printer and 8×10 prints cost about 29 cents each, much cheaper than most favors!

I think it could be charming – maybe if people could just take the pictures themselves, without a photographer (that might inhibit some guests) – also I would consider having a colored or patterned backdrop, if it isn’t a big deal.

Could you get a flickr (or similar) account and share the info with guests, so they could just print photos out themselves? You could have a little card that said the address of the site and the passwords to access it. Paying for an account might be cheaper than sending out photos to people.

Maybe you could say –

something about a sweet tooth & rhyme it with homemade "photobooth"

something about sharing the day and taking the photo their own way…

I dunno. my wordsmithing skillz are lacking this morning.

Hope that helps.

I am doing this. I am planning to put a sign on each table — maybe on the back of the table numbers, that reads:

"Please visit our "Photo Booth" — the floral backdrop just outside the Inn. Grab some accessories, strike a pose, or just be your beautiful self!

We’ll send you a copy of your photo(s) after the wedding and make a book filled with pictures of our wonderful guests!"

Although, reading the suggestions above, I may edit the last part to indicate that we will put the photos up on the flickr account.  We could still send photos to those who may not be super computer-savvy.

 

ETA: Also, if you have a dj or MC, you could ask them to make a few announcements throughout your reception, directing guests to the photo booth.

We are doing the exact same thing, Bettina!  A friend set this up for her 30th: props, background cloth, and her camera on a tripod with instructions to hit the timer button: it was supereasy. I’m actually commisioning her to help w/ setup at our wedding. Even though tis great to have a takehome polaroid, I think this (much cheaper)alternative will be just as fun for guests. Added bonus: sillier poses/ more people than you can fit in your regular rental booth!

No suggestions to add re: wording. I’m just gushing here.

That is brilliant.

Love it.

Cute and happy and sassy.

Instead of a sign, you can just have the photographer hand out cards with a URL your guests can visit to retrieve their photos. That’s what we do for our clients.
