Like someone else mentioned, the problem with a photobooth is that it tends to move people away from the dancefloor. If you’re having a quiet reception with no dancing it can be ok, if you want a party….ditch the photobooth idea. Personally I just feel like they’re becoming dated.

My friend had a photobooth at her wedding of around 100 guests and like others have said it was very popular but not many people danced. My wedding is next month and we’ve only invited about 20 people so I researched some instant cameras and bought a Fujifilm Instax 210 on eBay. They still sell the wide Instax film at Walmart so $50 for the camera and $15 per 20 sheets of film was a lot more affordable than a photobooth starting at $500. The building where we’re having our wedding is brick so we’re just going to have it decorated with mums and pumpkins and maybe props. I know our guests will enjoy it and I’ll use the camera in the future. Plus I think it takes pretty good pictures.

katmaekat : Nice picture!
And thank you all for your input. People not dancing is my biggest fear, I don’t need a photobooth detracting from the floor. However I did want some sort of “activity” people could do if they got bored. Overall budgetary concerns win for me I think. No photobooth is worth $800, and that’s how much I’ve been getting quoted by everyone. So expensive!
