we looked into them, its about $1000.  we didn think it was worth it.  Plus we went to a wedding recently and thats where all the attention was it was at the poto booth instead of at the bride and groom or on the dance floor

$1000 is about the price point we found, too, but LivingSocial has deals in our area constantly for $300 or $400, you just have to read the fine print very carefully, but it’s worth checking if the same happens in your area.

We went to a wedding with one a couple weeks ago. It was a LOT of fun, because you could cram like 10 people into the thing, and we got some great photos, but I agree with PP- it detracted all the attention from the bride and groom.  Of a 4 hour reception, we probably spent 2 of it with the photo booth, as did most of the guests. The dance floor was largely empty, and the bride and groom were also really distracted by it- we never got to talk to them because people were dragging them into the photo booth all night. 

The way I see it, we shelled out big bucks for a DJ that’s amazing and known for keeping the party going.  I’m not paying yet more for the privilege of distracting people from what I already spent a lot of money on.

We did a photobooth and it was a big hit! The booth printed off two copies of the photos; one copy for a book that people could put in and then write a message to us. The guests could go as many times they wanted and if they wanted an extra copy then the booth could print them out for us. Plus we got a dvd of all the photos taken in the booth! I LOVED the dvd.

In the end I think if you like it then go for it! It was a total hit at our wedding and there was still PLENTY of dancing going on!
