    I was at a wedding that had a photo area, and it didn’t seem to be well-used, except by the kids at the wedding. I think you’re right, the privacy of the photobooth will make some people feel more free to be silly. I definitely vote for the photobooth.

    guess i’m the only crazy one out there! i’ve seen great success w/ offbeat photo booths and they are fun for everyone. the key is to have a certain area for people to be in. too much room and people don’t get crazy. put out props, etc. and it gets really fun. my friend had a kissing booth that people liked a lot and i just set up a photo booth at a friends wedding.

    and “photo areas” are way less money and you can print as many copies as you want!

    I voted for the crazy “booth”! It’s a lot more fun & it will show the personalities of your guests!

    You know your guests best… perhaps they won’t like either if they’re older and/or have never seen a photobooth done at a wedding before. Like at my wedding, I doubt my guests would use it as much as I’d hope.

    I voted the crazy photo area because you can do it for next to nothing costwise! Photobooths are awesome but sooooooooooooooo expensive!
