    I’m on the fence with this, I see how it can be cute but I also see how it could be problematic

    “I’m on the fence with this, I see how it can be cute but I also see how it could be problematic”

    My thoughts exactly. I’m not really sure I’m feelin’ it.

    I think that looks super cute!  But as bells said, could be problematic in terms of who’s taking pictures.  I think most wedding guests bring cameras and it’s reasonable to assume that people could ask someone to take a photo of them (like those cut-out head photo spots at tourist attractions).  But if you have guests who don’t really know anyone, they may not be comfortable asking.  In that case, having your cousin on photo duty would work… but it’s not exactly enjoyable for him.

    I think you could do it, but be prepared it may not get used as much as you hope.

    i thik it is a brilliant idea. i am sure people will find someone to take pics of them (exactly like cut-out head spots someone mentioned before). you could also appoint a friend to be responsable for this who would occasionally ask around “have you used the photobooth yet” to make sure people are encouraged to use it. or you could appoint the time when people should use it. say while you are having a photoshoot with your photographer the guests are directed towards the props. there will be a bit of a queue but also can be very fun as people will be competitive to get creative; and they will take pictures for eachother. in this case you’d neet to make sure you have loads of photobooth props, but they are very easy to make.

    you can also have a couple of disposable cameras ready for the photobooth – great for a wedding abum/scapbook.

    This sounds like a really fun idea to me!  Even if it’s only used a few times, I think it would be worth it.  Maybe ask your cousin to be in charge of it, but only keep it open during the cocktail hour or during an hour of the reception, so that he’ll have time to enjoy the rest of the party too.
