    I love all of these, however I’m wondering how to best set up the booth. How are the pictures taken? Is someone manning the station with a digital camera? Are the photos then uploaded onto a website? I feel like printing out pictures there would get really costly. Thanks for the great post!

    • From weddings I’ve attended, I mostly seen guests having fun with it on their own or a photographer takes a handful throughout the night. You can also hire a photobooth company to take pictures of all your guests and print out photos as party favors, but it really depends on your budget and preference.

      You can also use our free Wedding Party app or any other online photo sharing service to retrieve all the photos your guests take on your wedding day!

    • Thank you! Yes if you do end up using any of these ideas we would love to see how they turned out! You can share it with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
