    sorry if this is in wrong thread, but thought of this as "entertainment".

    has anyone ever been to a wedding where they had a photo booth and guests can go in and take pictures? how does it work? im thinking each guest gets a ticket for one photo? i wanted to look into price quotes too, can anyone recommend any rentals for this in phila or s. jersey area's? many thanks!

      i was at a wedding last year and they had a photo booth... it was sooo much FUN!!! We didn't get any tickets, as a matter of fact people used the booth several times... not sure what the package included but if they charge you per picture taken i would definitely give out tickets or something... because honestly, people will go crazy taking pictures, especially as the night goes on.

              I recently went to a wedding where there was a photobooth. The couple had just rented it for the night with unlimited photos. They just asked that you cut one of the photos off of one of your strips and put it into a scrapbook with a message for them, so they could see the fun their guests were having.

              It was a lot of fun. The machine was VERY old and messed up a few times, but people would stand in line waiting because they wanted their pictures made.

              I decided to look into it for our AHR, but the prices I found locally were well over my budget for something like that. Something like $1,000 for a few hours. FI said that he would figure out a way to do it ourselves, but we shall see how far that goes

              But I say...if it is in your budget, your guests will love it!

              I love this idea... but it is expensive and depending on where your wedding is it may be hard to get. I couldn't do this so what I did was take card stock and pre-made little cards that were big enough to hold a polaroid. On the outside I printed a picture of us and our names/wedding date/location (whatever you want) and on the inside left it had a little lovey saying and on the right I pre-cut slits for the picture to fit in. Then we had polaroid cameras there for everyone to get a picture with us and then put it in the card for them to take home. It was nice because it gave them a nice pic with us and most people get dressed up for a wedding and it captured them as well.
              If you have anything special at the wedding, like a horse and carriage or something you can have the picture taken of them in it. You can also get picture frames that will fit the pics and do that as their momento. They have the little cameras now that take pics that look like photobooth pics and print out immediately like a polaroid. Anyway, just some ideas.
              People love pics!

                I did this for my AHR in July and people are still talking about how much fun it was!

                Here is how mine worked:
                The strips come with 6 pictures in your choice of black or white. (you chose each sheet so not all for the night, KWIM?)

                The center has a personalized greeting/logo/message/graphic, etc

                The rental was for 4 hours with unlimited pictures.

                My company brought all sorts of props - hats, boas, crazy glasses, etc. I brought a message board so people could write notes. (It gets interesting when everyone is drunk)

                The company also provides a little "scrapbook" table with different pens, stickers, etc and asked each guest to cut out a photo and write us a message. This was our guestbook.

                The regular rental is $1500 I think for the night.

                I'll try to remember to take pictures tonight of my album.

                  I have been to a wedding with one and it was a lot of fun! They had the unlimited photos as well and requested you left a note and picture for them.

                    I went to a wedding last year, and it was a booth, and a digital camera. They had unlimited pics. And it came out with 4 pics together like in a square. It was a riot!

                    There was actually someone working the booth. He was printing the pictures.
