    If you can afford it, why not? It’s just an added perk.

    @Rubbs:  Do you like dancing with upbeat music at a wedding? It’s a wedding, not a night club.

    I LOVE them!  It’s a lot of fun if you have friends there and have had a little bit to drink!  I have some great pictures from wedding photo booths Smile

    @Rubbs:  No, I just don’t get it. There are lots of things that happen at a wedding reception that are generally reserved for other types of fun environments.

    I imagine back when dancing first started becoming popular at weddings there were people who clutched their chest and said just that – dancing isn’t appropriate at a wedding. (Haha, actually, I know there are still areas/religions that feel that way!)

    You are certainly entitled to your opinion, I’m just pointing out there are lots of types of entertainment at a wedding that were originally associated with some other, non-wedding-appropriate, venue.

    I love photo booths at a wedding because it gives the guests something else to do besides dance or drink. ๐Ÿ™‚

    photo booths are very honky tonk, Jersey shore boardwalk to me, and don’t see where they belong at a wedding. (and yes, I am a Jersey girl)

    Had one.  LOved it.  Guests loved it.  It did not take people away from the dance floor, and it provided us with an awesome guestbook afterwards!

    Thanks ladies….and I do want to share what we did.

    We opted to have our wedding photopraphers for the whole day (not really by choice as we had a noon ceremony) as it was the only package that would cover all the festivities.  Since it was a husband and wife team (2 photographers) and we paid for their most expensive package I asked if 1 of them would be willing to stay put and take pics at my diy booth.  They said yes so we got the booth pics included in the package and all I paid for was the backdrop and the props.  

    Obviously this won’t work for everyone BUT they were scheduled to stay until 11:45 pm so I thought why not pull one away to take pics after the dance started.  We got all our typical wedding moments captured and a bunch of others from the booth.

    Have fun with it as the guests definitily will.

    OH and I did want to mention that I work in the wedding industry and have worked tons of high budget ($100K plus) weddings and they usually all have the photobooth.  It can be done very up scale or as ridiculous as you want.  It is a very popular thing in weddings these days!

    i can see how they might seem played out in the US… but here in Mexico ive never been to a wedding with one (and ive been to a million weddings). so i think if we get one the guests will really love it

    @newname_99:  Jersey Shore as in the entire New Jersey beachfront and the various boardwalks, not the show, and honky tonk refers to a venue that’s very splashy and not sophisticated. 

    Jersey Shore, the show, highlights Seaside Heights, which has always had the reputation, even when I was a child and went there in the 1960’s as very “honky tonk” /carnival like. 

    I prefer the more sedate Jersey beachfront towns that do not have the highly commercialised boardwalks.
