    Totally overrated. I mean they are fun but really not a make a break or break wedding entertainment.

    Probably overrated, but that said if I had the funds to do it I would!

    I love a good photos booth! They are fun, and it’s a good way to take a piece of the night home with you!

    Could be both. They are done a lot and there are some people jumping on board with poor quality machines. The nice ones though are super fun and make a great gift to you guests and great memories.

    Overrated. They can be fun, but they are way too expensive for just some silly pictures

    Definitely overrated. You don’t need that to make your day special. I’m doing a disposal cameras on each table. Way cheaper and people have fun with it!

    Underrated. I really look forward to looking back at all the photos the guests have taken. I’m from a picture family so it will get used. The machine will send a copy of all the photos to my email and the guests can email and or print theirs. I think it will be a hit!

    Overrated! Although is fun the pictures are always bad quality, the space is small and crowded if you have more than 3 people. The lines are huge and take people out of the dance floor and no wedding ever has the photo-booth all night. Weird when they start picking up right in front of everyone.

    Underrated but over priced. It’s fun. I love them. I also want to use it as guest/scrap book.

    at Groupon we have ours for two hours for 200. They have a green screen so it is all digital so you can go to store and get them printed. So it will be good prints

    Aww, Mandi, why do you think background walls are tacky? I'm not sure what we're doing but it's good to know the pros and cons for each one. We'll probably not go with a photobooth, though, because our venue is attached to a butterfly conservatory and for a small fee we can keep it open for two hours during the reception. People can take pictures in there.

    They’re so over done and over used. I love the concept. But not for my wedding

    Overrated I’m so sick of photo booths hahaha. My FH wants one so I’m sure we will get one because he hasn’t asked for much but I’ve just seen them at every wedding I’ve been to and wanted something different.

    I think they're fun - not necessarily overrated, but we're not having one
