Is anyone else planning on renting a photobooth? We are considering one but aren’t sure when to offer it. It comes for 4 hours standard, and then we can pay to add more time. It will double as our guest book. I was originally thinking of starting it during the cockail hour. But the company suggested starting after dinner. What advice do you have to make sure we get the most for our money?!

Have you looked into a DIY photobooth? They are much cheaper and you can include a cute fabric and some props so your guests can show their individuality. Mrs. Cowboy Boot had one.

Hello Date-twin!! I honestly don’t have alot of advice in this arena since the Phoenix-area photo booth companies priced us out, but we are doing a FAUX-to-booth, and are just having it set up in one of the archways for the entirity of the reception and will be encouraging people to take instant photos with it. We are having the DJ announce that the FAUX-to-booth is open and then we plan on demonstrating it. :o) I hope that MAYBE helps!

We’re going with the faux option as well, and based on what I’ve seen from a lot of bees, I think the faux ones are even prettier than the pro ones. (Hey look, rhyming.) You can personalize the background however you like, so that’s really nice. We’re just having one of our two photographers man the “booth” for some 45 min or something during the reception so folks can get their pictures done.

i say after dinner… if you do it at the cocktail hour people will be in line for the pictures instead of enjoying cocktails! plus, then you don’t need to split it up when peope are eating

Thanks everyone. We thought about the fauxto-booth idea but are getting a good deal through our DJ and are excited to have the details in someone else’s hands. Either option is a sure way to provide entertainment for guests – I just love the idea. I think we’ll go with after dinner. Once we make this decision, it seems like most of the big planning will be done – that’s sort of sad!!
