I think prints are fun!  I would take a look at sheets in your local stores, and even shower curtains. 

I’ve had a lot of brides use those or tablecloths.  If you have an Ikea near you they have a lot of different prints that are neat.

Look at http://www.dropitmodern.com  – this is where most professional photogs get their backdrops so you can get an idea of what kind/size prints you like first.

Good luck 🙂

what is the feel you are wanting and what props do you have?

I would definately look at sheets, and then think about stamping or stenciling a pattern or border on it.  I think there was a really cute DIY photo booth on ruffled.com.  They have really cute ideas.

I have yards and yards of yellow seersucker fabric I’d love to get rid of for a cheap price! 🙂

I’m not sure if it will work for a photobooth or not, but you can buy tulle in bulk from JoAnn Fabrics. I’m planning on getting some for a backdrop behind the head table. I’m going to hang christmas lights vertically behind slightly gathered tulle.

@Miss Seersucker: LOVE that pattern! =)

 

I say do something like Miss_Seersucker has, a “soft” but still FUN & MODERN pattern!

@heather5743: sure, i’ll try to get you a pic this weekend. it’s basically a chalkboard speech blurb and people can write on it. it’s on a stick so they can hold it up.

@heather5743: I dont know how this would actually look when complete, but the thought of it in my head sounds cute: maybe you could add like GREY bows or Circles/Dots and place them on a stripped fabric (like the one above)?! That might be neat! Or maybe you can jus thave grey props or a grey sign hanging with your name and date in the background?!

What about a grey or yellow damask?
