@stellarwbz: I don’t have any great advice but will say that at the wedding I’ve been to with a photobooth, it was used more towards the end than the beginning.  I’m having this problem too but am kind of hoping we can get it set up during the dinner without causing too much disruption.

I was at a wedding last weekend where they didn’t start the photobooth until they opened the dance floor. That worked well because you could dance instead of just standing in line, and then run up and sneak in when there was no one waiting!

I would do it 3-5. I think keeping it consistently going without a break will make people take more pictures. I also think doing that will give people time to arrive and settle in to your reception. Not sure if you are taking formal pictures at your reception location, but that’s another thing to consider… Cause you want to take pics in the photobooth too. I feel like that first hour will give you time to visit say hi to people. My brother has a photobooth business and he usually blocks out the last hours of the reception.

I understand that time is money, but it seems a shame to pay so much money for time that the booth isn’t in use.

I don’t know if you are interested, but we are doing our own photobooth, we are getting the Sparkbooth software, and just using a couple of room dividers that the reception space already has to block it off. If you are interested, there is a tutorial on the weddingbee diy page

No, I know the set up for my brothers booth’s are pretty simple and doesn’t require much room. As long as they are not setting up in the middle of entrances , it should be fine. It also might get the guests excited to go in the photobooth if they see it being set up.
