Feature wall vs photobooth

Sendims, on 24/November/2018 at 09:38 Posted in Plan a wedding
Hello,
Has anyone ever done a feature wall instead of a photobooth ? Did you prefer one over the other, and why? What is the price difference?

My fiance and I are thinking of DIY-ing a featurewall to save money. We were thinking of something like this

    I thought of a feature wall, but decided against it. (I may revisit it in time).

    I do think it's preferable to a photo booth as your guests could utilize their own cameras (or you could provide one on a tripod as I believe was suggested below), which means both you and your guests could have a copy of each picture for yourself.

    This is a great idea! Never even thought of it , but I think it would definitely be wonderful especially saving money!

    Is the point of a feature wall to be like a photobooth without the “booth”? And then people just take their own pics? If so, we’re doing basically the same thing except it will be a backdrop and we’re providing a tripod for phones. That way it’s cheap, and if no one uses it then we didn’t even spend $20 on it! I love the look of the wall though and I’d say go for it!

    I love the feature wall. Photo booths are fun and interactive though. For our August wedding, we will be setting up an outdoor lounge area. That will be our version of a photo booth.

    I’ll have French Victorian furniture and I want to hang a chandelier or glass details for some added sparkle.

    ☺️

    To be completely honest I'd never even heard of a feature wall before reading your comment but I LOVE this - I am definitely going to incorporate this into our reception!

    Thank you for your opinion ! We just wanted something different than a typical photobooth and we have other reasons as well. But thanks for your honesty

    Ok I honestly don’t get the point of a feature wall?

    IMO I would just skip it. Especially if you are trying to save money.

    It depends! For yours honestly you could probably find a slab of drywall and decorate it up! You wouldnt need anything too expensive just something large and flat and decorate the tops and sides as needed! The only thing I would recommend is to maybe have a friend with a decent camera come and help with the wall? Take a few photos for people? I worry about making this backdrop and with no one to help at it people would only take selfies and you wont get the full effect...

    Exactly !!! I'm just trying to see where we can save money lol!

    I love the idea you posted !!! I'm just wondering how much feature walls would cost as opposed to a photobooth!!

    I'm debating this too! I love the idea of a photobooth but they are expensive... I've been to weddings where the booth was a huge hit! And I've been to ones where the photobooth guy is standing there twiddling his thumbs for most of the time....
    I really want to do a feature wall like this! Where the moon is forward and let's you sit on it!! I think it's so cute and fits out theme perfect!
