We are getting one for a few reasons...they add such a fun touch to a wedding and Give an alternative activity to dancing, and also serve as favors because the guests can take home the souvenirs. We also get a book of everyone’s photo copies and they can write us a message. Ours cost $500 but it is one thing we are splurging on. Also, I have seen a lot of DIY photo booths and fun things you can do but I didn’t want to have to deal with all that! There’s a bunch of ideas on Pinterest though!
I think photobooths are great because your guests will have photo memories of the event ,but I wouldn’t consider it a must-have. If it’s not in the budget, make/rent a backdrop.I have had just as much fun with the backdrops people made on their own because it had a personal touch. Purchasing a custom Snapchat geo-filter for the wedding is also fun 😊
I really want one but not sure if my budget will allow that to happen or not!!!
I would say definitely get a photo booth if you have room in your budget. Our photo booth is included with our DJ and MC package. This adds a nice personal touch with another activity to keep your guests busy. Our DJ is providing us with the magic mirror photo booth.
If you’re on the fence and won’t be sad if you don’t get it, you can also try waiting until closer to your wedding to rent one. We added a photo booth rather last minute and I think they were the only vendor who would negotiate with us! 😂 The nice part about hiring a photo booth is having an attendant to encourage people to use the booth or explain how it works. Not necessary, but I think it helps people use it a little bit more so you’ll have more photos. You can also save on your rate by going all digital. Adding the print strips and memory book adds up!
Definitely not a necessity but it was one of my must haves. I’m not big on dancing bc I’m super self conscious but I love a photo booth. We have not booked ours yet, but will be in the next month or so. As for prices, I think it all depends on your area. Also, check Groupon, I’ve seen them on there before.
I say yay!!! I have one for my special day it was a free perk that was given for booking 150 guest with the venue.
I looked at photo booths but for the more casual type of wedding that I'm having, I decided against it since most people will be taking pictures with their phones during the reception. I hope this helps!
My reception venue works with a photographer, so they were able to get us a photo booth for about $400. They will bring props for it and I was also planning on getting some wedding and Christmas props.
I personally hate the look of the prop photos. I dunno why, it's just not my jam. I love the idea of a photo guest book, though, so we're thinking about maybe setting up a kind of DIY situation with some Polaroids at the front. We'll see what happens, lol.
