We’ll be having one at our wedding. I’ve been to a wedding that had one and thought it was a fun idea. I also like that with every photostrip printed, a copy is printed and put into a guestbook by the photobooth attendant. Then, the people in the picture can sign underneath it or write a cute little message. It’ll be a nice keepsake. If you like it, go for it ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been to one wedding with a photo booth and I thought it was so awesome!  I definitely want one.  I think a cool thing most companies offer (that I will probably do) is using the photostrips and putting them into a guest book which your guests can then sign and add a message on the same page.

I had one, it was definitely a big hit, everyone loved it and I got a hard copy of all the guests’ strips as well as a CD with the photos.  I’d say go for it.

We loved ours – so many of our guests told us it was a great idea. We got copies of all the strips put together in an album that the guests signed during the evening, and I figure that will get looked at way more than a traditional guestbook ever will in the future.

Plus it’s hilarious to flip through and see the progression as people got more and more drinks in them – the pictures start getting awesome!

I have been to one wedding with a photo booth.  We didn’t have one at ours and I have no idea how expensive they are but it was so much fun and with how many people were lined up to take pics, I would think it was worth it for the couple. 

A cute idea if you do decide to go with the photo booth…  At the wedding I went to, the couple set it up so that every time people took photos two prints were made.  One print went in a wedding photo book and people could write messages to the couple next to their pictures.  Then people got to keep the other print.

SO fun! It’s definitely worth it IMO. Especially if you get a book with all the photos taken in it afterwards.

We are having a photobooth instead of party favors!  It’s so much fun!  So worth it.

We’re not having a photo-booth, but, we’re having our photographer set up for about an hour in the evening in a room off the main reception area, and we’ll provide hats/oversized glasses etc. We didn’t want to spend the money on a photobooth, so for us this a great compromise as I think they’re so much fun! ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re also planning on getting the rights to all photos so felt it would make a nice memento for guests after.

We fell in love when we saw them at a wedding show.  Still trying to find budget for it ๐Ÿ˜›

In the NW, the traditional close booth kind cost about $1500 for 3-4 hours.  If anyone find some anything cheaper in the area, please share.

We are having a photobooth.

My friends and I have had a lot of fun using them at weddings we attended. It certainly gave us some funny moments that were recorded on film that is for sure.
