But if you are looking for something different, there are lots of ways to DIY photo booths backdrops and accessories. You don’t need expensive equipment or have to buy a ton of stuff to make the perfect photo booth for your wedding. Let’s look at some ways to create a fun DIY photo booth that will have your guests entertained all night long!
The backdrop should frame your guests without drawing too much attention from them. We recommend keeping it simple with items like ribbons, flowers, curtains, or balloons. You can easily incorporate your wedding colors into your backdrop with any of these items.
It is important to keep lighting in mind around your photo booth. There are lots of affordable string lights, bistro lights or lanterns you can purchase. Also be sure if you have lights in the background, that you place lights in front of the camera as well, about eye level so the guests don’t appear too dark in the photos.
Here’s where the fun begins! You can really personalize your photo booth with props, and provide as much variety as possible. It is extremely easy to DIY props like masks, jewelry, and signs. You can also purchase reasonably priced props at thrift stores, online or even Target (YAY Target!) Glasses, wigs, hats, or anything – the sky’s the limit.
There a few different options regarding how to take the pictures at the photo booth. If you have a camera and tripod, you can station a designated “photographer” at the photo booth throughout the evening to take the pictures. You could then email out all the photos that were saved on the memory card. You can provide polaroid’s or even make it a selfie station so guests can go home with their own pictures.
