my brother had this at his wedding.  it was a hit and they ended up extending the photobooth for the duration of the wedding.  he had the package where a copy is placed in the a scrapbook provided by the photobooth company) and guests wrote messages in the book.  but the photoboth company had staff on site to do the scrapbooking otherwise i think guests would have simply walked away with all copies of the photos.

I had a photobooth (and photobooth guestbook!) at my wedding!  It was awesome.  We actually found an etsy seller who makes custom guestbooks with a photobooth page option (a strip-sized rectangle where people glue the pic strip next to some lines for comments).  It was a big hit! The rectangle for the photo actually says “Photo here” so guests were able to figure it out pretty easily.  Also, putting the guestbook table next to the photobooth was a good clue.  😉

Here’s the link to the etsy seller we got ours from:  ModernShabby on Etsy

She has tons of options for customization!

I went to a wedding this summer with a photobooth, I had never seen it before. Everyone had a blast! And my Fiance insisted on dressing up as a pirate since they had costumes…

We thought about doing this at our reception, but we had a photobook at our shower with engagement pics of us in it and we didn’t get that many people to sign it even after we passed it around.

We will probably have a photobooth at our reception with no guestbook there. We are going to print out postcards complete with a stamp so that guests can write us a note in the comfort of their own homes and mail it back to us.

We did this and it was a big hit. Our photo booth was staffed though so he was able to tell people what to do. Maybe put a sign with a cute poem by the guestbook so people know what to do? We looked through the book immediately after the reception and it was hilarious, totally worth it.

We are having a photobooth as well and they will be sending an attendant with the machine and they will be able to assist everyone.  

Call your photobooth company and find out if they will be sending an attendant.  If not just have a few signs around telling them what to do. 


Here is a really cute Photo Booth Sign from weddingchicks.com

I think I would know what to do if I saw other people doing it. So maybe have mom & dad or someone do theirs first, so it’s in the book and people can see it?
