I was originally set on having a photo booth. I think they are so fun, and give people something to take home with them, and you can make a guestbook that you will actually look back on.

That being said, photobooths are really popular. Meaning, there will be lineups, and if she has kids at the wedding, will be trying to go back numerous times. While people are focussed on the photobooth/waiting in line, they are missing out on the rest of the activities.

I think for that reason, the ice cream bar may be a better idea. It can be located in the main reception area, so people can enjoy, but not miss out on anything.

We thought about both when we had an august date and ice cream is messy and there will be some kids and it does not go well with alcohol but photobooth’s do not have these issues

We went with the photobooth – I can have ice cream any time but the photos are great memories

We were thinking about a chocolate fountian or a photobooth. We chose a photobooth. The pictures will last forever, and they tend to be a highlight at most weddings. The chocolate fountian would end up being too messy. I’d imagine ice cream would be messy as well.

I’d rather have an awesome picture from a wedding than an ice cream cone, but both are great choices πŸ™‚

We’re having an ice cream cart, and no photobooth.

So, umm, I’m gonna vote for ice cream cart. πŸ™‚

Ice cream sounds pretty awesome, but pictures from a photo booth will last forever, so that’s my vote πŸ™‚

I am biased because I feel like photography is something that is essential — with a photobooth you can capture memories that will last a lifetime.  The life cycle of ice cream is much shorter… lol

I really think the photobooth is a party-maker, especially if there will be a lot of guests at her wedding who haven’t seen one before. And she may not need to worry about the older folks getting into it… at my BIL’s wedding a few months ago, even the parents/aunts/uncles in their 60s & 70s were getting into it, even the moustache props!

Why can’t they have both? We’re having both!  Going with a caterer for the Ice Cream Stand, maybe even use Cold Stone Creamery. SO doesn’t like cake, so we will most likely even do an ice cream cake through them as well.  For budget purposes so we can have booth, we’ll do a DIY photo booth using Sparkbooth. Betwen the photo paper the computer program and the ink, we’ll spend about 100 bucks!  Photo paper is on sale at Office Max on Black friday, $1.00 for 100 sheets of 4×6 paper.  See there’s a way to do both!!!!
