daniellemc:  I love this idea!  My co-worker did that and it turned out fantastic. They did have a photo booth though. I am with your mom, that frame is for a photo booth picure, what are they going to put in there after your wedding?  My co-workers said something like Please check out the photo booth and use this to take the picture home to remember the fun night’

For a moment I might wonder but then I’d get over it and enjoy the rest of the night. In fact if I hadn’t already attended one wedding where they used this kind of photobooth frame I would probably have no idea that’s what they are.

daniellemc:  If I was a guest and there was no photobooth I would not take the acrylic frame home…meaning you may have lots of these frames afterwards which would be a waste of money (IMHO). If there was a photobooth I would put it in the frame and take it with me and think it’s pretty cool.

I vote yes on the photobooth, especially if you’re doing Traveling Photobooth. They are pricey but, in my opinion, puts out some of the highest quality prints. It only holds 2 people seated, but there’s a curtain in the back where people can stand and be included. You should check them out if they are in your area. We got props and the photo registry book which I LOVE because I got pictures of everyone and with their well wishes immediately. Darling Husband and I enjoyed looking at them by ourselves after the wedding was over.

Whomever you go with, I think the photobooth is a fun idea and your guests will love it. Especially people that don’t like to dance. 

Dooooo it! 😀

daniellemc:  we’re not because were trying to keep our budget in check, but we are however creating a “selfie station” with props and stuff. Equally as fun, low cost. Win win!!

ellagrace:  That’s so cool!

Care to post more details? Are you getting an actual selfie stick for guests to use? A backdrop? A sign so people know what it is?

I like photobooths but I don’t think I would think it was weird if I saw these and didn’t see a photobooth.  If there was a photobooth in addition to these I would think it was cool 🙂

GirlyGirl24:  hmmmmm I never thought of a selfie stick but that could be a funny little touch!! I hope to DIY a cute backdrop and have a little trunk of cheesy costume stuff you can get from party city for super cheap. Maybe make a cute chalkboard sign explaining what the “selfie station” is all about, and everyone can snap away, post to social media, use the wedding hashtag, or the wedding app were thinking of using. Thanks for the selfie stick idea!!

ellagrace:  Haha well the reason I was asking was because I was actually thinking of doing something similar, but I hadn’t seen anybody else do a selfie station instead of a photobooth. Great minds think alike! 

This is the one I was thinking of: http://www.amazon.com/Minisuit-Selfie-Built–Remote-Android/dp/B00OADPYRM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1423085727&sr=8-1&keywords=minisuit+selfie+stick (That, or just mounting my iPad to a tripod and using a photobooth app on there).

And I was thinking of getting a little sign with directions made up from someone on Etsy.

No, photobooth is not necessary and won’t be missed.

GirlyGirl24:  I think I’m totally going to use a selfie stick now, if anything for the novelty of it. I think guests will love it and just be silly!!

daniellemc:  This is such a cute and unique idea.  But I agree with your mom… it may be confusing to the guests.  Maybe a few years ago, it wouldn’t be, but since photobooths at weddings are so popular now… it may be excpected.  I’m not sure what types of photobooths you’re looking into, but there are also open air photobooths which just requires a backdrop and tons of people can fit into it as it is all completely open.  That may be more affordable than a closed photobooth?  We are doing an open on and the cost here is $675.  I have seen the price be higher in certain areas though.  Keep looking – I’m sure you’ll find something and it’ll be something your guests or you and your future husband will not forget! 🙂
