I am contemplating whether to have a selfie mirror (the modern style photo booth) for the reception to capture some extra fun photos but as we are paying for the wedding ourselves we are trying to keep costs down so I am wondering whether anyone has had this and whether they think it is worth the money or just a waste of time?
I went to a wedding fayre a few months ago and they look brilliant. I am having a photo booth but this is all tied up in the photography package but would prefer the mirror. Go for it! X
Ive been to a couple of wedding with them and I am definitely having one. They are fun for guests and some of the pictures you get are great- lots do a guestbook with it so they get to take home a picture and you get to keep one in a book with a little message from everyone. So I would definitely say they are worth it
I went to a wedding which had a photo booth and although we all genuinely loved it and had a great time, people spent a lot of time queuing and in the photo booth and so the atmosphere in the main reception area was quite quiet and the dancefloor never really got going. So I think it depends what you envision your reception to be like, and also the layout of the venue and where you can put the booth. I think if you do go for one, the mirror type is great as other guests can still watch and join in the fun even if they aren't the ones in the booth :)
To be honest I don't see what the attraction of a photo booth or selfie mirror is.
Why dont you see if your photographer will be able to do something for you? My photographer is bringing a backdrop and has her own props and whilst the evening is starting she will be doing this but it will only be for 1 hour before everyone is dancing. X
Why don’t you buy a mirror from a charity shop and buy an Instax camera (they sell them at Argos or Amazon) or see if a friend has a camera :)
We are having a selfie pod! A lot more compact x
I'm having one at my wedding it's not till September 2019 we already have it booked but I entered a competition on Facebook and got a deal on it it's usually £500, and we got it for £250 for 3 hrs , I think they are brilliant really worth the money and people are constantly using it
They are fab. I'm thinking of doing my own selfie corner for guests and getting diy props and selfie sticks. My venue doesn't allow any other company's booth but there own yet there own is way more expensive so i couldn't justify it xx
I had the selfie mirror and all feedback was amazing all preferred it to the booth and my dance floor was equaliy as busy definitely worth the money I prefer looking back at that album now too as it captured more funny moments and more people xx
We were going to do our own but saw a great one at a wedding fair and it's 4 hours unlimited photos one set of which gets put in an album which the guest also signs their photo. There's someone looking after it too so we decided to get the magic mirror.
I own an events company. The selfie mirror and booth is great fun but what you want/need to make it fun is the guestbook package. The guests receive a photo and one gets glued in the book with a comment. I attend the booth/mirror to ensure guests have the most fun but mostly to ensure guests leave messages. It's a fantastic keepsake for you especially as the night goes in the messages are great and you have those memories from guests of your evening which you wouldn't have had without it.
We had a photobooth and it went down a treat with the guests.The dance floor was equally as full and we booked a marryoke video service with our booth and it was definitely worth the money.it wouldn't have been the same if we done the marryoke video with one of those selfie mirrors as it was better in the booth.x
I'm having one it looks fab and want to splash out on the memory side of it x
We're having a selfie mirror, were quoted £350 for 4 hrs, which includes props, copy of the photos for the guests and a copy for the guest book, and all the photos on a USB.
We're having it for the evening as our photographer will be finishing after the speeches etc so nice bit of fun for the night.
Definitely shop around though as prices vary, we've had quotes as much as £500 for the same length of time. Xxxx
We had a photo booth and it was a hit at the wedding!
We had mirror amazing worth every penny
We had one and it was great and everyone commented how much fun it was
We had one for our wedding last month & it was brilliant!! The guest absolutely loved it, they got pictures for free as a wedding favour & we got a guestbook of everyones pictures with msgs the guests had written in with the price; look for deals, we got ours with a £100 discount X
I got £100 off the price of hire by telling them I love it but it's a little out of my budget. I still get 3 hours of use and a copy of all the pictures in an album as well as use of props bargain!
If you don't ask you don't get
We’ve booked PictureBlast selfie pod. Only £200 for all day and night, and unlimited digital photos after! There’s a deal at the moment for free props and a free photo book after
I am doing mine my self got the props and a cam and a friend is going to sit with it and do picks for me to put on a disc if people wont the picjs i can print them
I instead had my neighbour's daughter who's doing a photo A level course come to do our photo booth .... I put together in a picnic hamper a variety of props ....& a flower wall on the wall that everyone seemed to love posing in front of ....
Worked out a lot cheaper ....& awesome good quality photos = Result !!
We are thinking of setting up our own booth with a tablet and getting an instant Bluetooth printer. Much cheaper than a company.
We had a photobooth it was a great way of getting people in the mood and finding thier silly sides we came away with a photo album which our guests wrote comments in and everyone got to keep thier copies x
I’m having one that also doubles up as my guest book!
I’ve got a large box of props and a huge frame for sale that we used for our wedding - everyone loved dressing up!
