Photo booths are one of the biggest crazes that has swept through the wedding industry in the last few years! Are you still totally into them, or kind of over it?

What do you think? Are photo booths overrated or underrated?

    Overrated. I think they're so overdone and a waste of money in my opinion. We are having other entertainment at our wedding that we haven't seen done at other weddings.

    Overrated. We're having one because my fh really wanted it. It is fun and I feel like people now expect one, but I wouldn't mind going without.

    I personally don’t like them. I’m having a basket of props for selfies near my wedding hashtag sign when people walk in. They can make the most of it

    Overrated. We are having one at our wedding but only because we are friends with an owner of a provider and he is gifting it to us for free as a wedding present. Otherwise, we'd pass.

    The only people at my wedding reception that would use the photo booth would be the kids, and there will be a lot of them there. Although with the open bar I could get some pretty interesting drunk shots lol

    Overrated, we don't intend to have one. And I don't think it'll be missed.

    Overrated. Just something else to spend money on. I think it's kind of tacky as well. Def not having one.

    I say this, despite having one at my wedding, overrated. We only got it because it came with a great package with out DJ services.

    I love them, but they've gotten a little overrated since everyone does them. Ours came free with our photographer/videographer package, and I'm excited we're having one, though!

    Underrated! I feel like everyone wants to capture themselves looking dressed up and occasions like weddings give people an opportunity to take pictures with relatives that they may have lost contact with and etc. Sure people have cellphones these days but there's just something about a photobooth that brings out the fun. Definitely having one for my wedding, it was never a question.

    We're having one.
    They are probably a little overrated, but I wanted one.
    And I wanted a professional one, not just a tacky Instagram wall.
