Hi there, I am totally having a wedding booth. I am doing my own though! Getting a camera set up, a remote that people can take pictures with so no one has to touch the camera and then a laptop so people can view their photos. I also went and got props like mustaches, hats, glasses, etc. good lunch 🙂

@roseyposey:  My thoughts are that unless you really want it, it’s become almost a cliche lately. Way too trendy for my tastes.

So many photos pop up for me on my FB newsfeed and Pinterest (and other places) where you see the wedding photo booth and the people holding up fake moustaches (another cliche trend that’s starting to annoy me).

I dunno… I guess I just like to be a little bit more unique and tend to push back on things that are trendy.

I think in theory it’s a cute idea, it’s just way too popular these days.

I wanted a photobooth but my wedding isn’t going to be big enough to be worth it with the cost. I think if your wedding is big enough (mine is only 50 people) and you think people will really like it, definitely go for it. Photobooths are so much fun!

Photobooths can be a big hit at weddings, but it somewhat depends on what your crowd is like and how much they tend to let loose and be silly.  That price (especially for a printing booth) is insanely low.

I LOVE PHOTOBOOTHS! They’re so fun! You can turn it into your guestbook too if you’d like. Guests can attach their photo (usually 2 get printed, the other they can keep) and write you a message. I plan on having one if it’s within budget!

We had a photo booth and it was THE best decision we made. Everyone (old and young) had an amazing time!

As february_bride says you can also do your own if you want to cut costs. You could have a person taking photos, as my friends have done, or set up a camera with a remote. You could later upload photos to ex. Photago.com and everyone could see the photos during the wedding but also after the wedding. If you find a way to upload photos directy formt he photobooth to Photago you could for example have a slide show on a TC screen so guest could see the photos taken live  beside the Photo booth.

i had a photobooth at mine and it was a big hit. i ended up extending the rental for another hour because everyone was having so much fun! i ended up spending about $850 (including the extra hour we added). totally worth it!

we provided our own props and scrapbook because it was cheaper that way. it was going to be, like, an additional $75 to use the company’s props, which i thought was a little ridiculous. we just went to the dollar store and bought all the funny masks/glasses/hats they had. and we used coupons for jo-ann’s to buy the scrapbook supplies.

I think everyone loves photobooths..!  Who doesn’t want extra pictures of themselves? Wink We hired someone who charges on the low end ($700) for this area, and I think it’s totally worth it.  At every wedding Fiance and I have gone to recently, people were hogging these babies up to take multiple shots.
