Party Photo Booth Etiquette

You’re throwing the self-proclaimed party of the year, and low key, you want it to be a no-holds-barred type of party. In other words, you want people to let their hair down and feel free to have a good time in their own ways. There is one catch, though: You’ll be incorporating a snazzy party photo booth into your celebration, and you don’t want your guests to get too crazy when using it.

The reality is, party photo booth rentals are an excellent way to make your shindig even more memorable and enjoyable for party-goers. However, your party photo booth will be a hit only if your guests understand proper photo booth etiquette.

Here’s a rundown on a few key rules every guest should be aware of before using your photo booth.

Don’t Bring Drinks into the Photo Booth

Few things are worse than walking into a photo booth that has been covered with spilled drinks. Another annoying thing to discover in a photo booth? That the photo booth props have become drenched with someone’s beverage.

To avoid these issues, it’s best to avoid going into the booth with a beverage in hand. If you encourage your guests to leave their glasses of champagne outside of the booth, your booth will stay dry, and that means more guests will have the chance to use it comfortably all night.

Don’t Remove the Props from the Party Photo Booth

Yes, your guests may be tempted to “borrow” their favorite photo booth props so that they can dance or play around with them during the party. And yes, this should be discouraged. After all, if the props stay in the booth, then all of your guests will have the chance to enjoy them in their booth shots—and that’s only fair.

Don’t Attempt to Squeeze Too Many People into a Single Picture

So, exactly how many individuals should be allowed to get into a single party photo booth shot? It depends on your situation. There’s no black-and-white rule on the matter, so a good rule of thumb is to stop allowing people to enter the booth if it starts feeling even just a smidge crowded.


Because when you get too many people trying to squeeze in and say “cheese,” the risk of an accident happening goes up. And let’s face it: The last thing you want is for everyone to be talking about the accident that took place at your party, versus the party itself.

To promote a safe photo booth experience and make sure that everyone is visible in the shots, encourage your guests to simply take multiple booth shots as needed.
