@kbear18:  I made photobooth props like mustaches and lips and bow ties. I also bought some funky sunglasses and hats and masks. I made a photobooth sign, the idea was that it would just be hung up in an empty corner but somehow the sign got lost the day of so all the young adults just played around with the props and the photographer went around snapping pictures of us. People either got their photos from our professional album or just took pictures with their phones.

 

H bought me a polaroid camera last year as a gift and I had planned to use it for the wedding photo booth but we could not get it to work…it was off of Amazon and our purchase was never resolved, no refund or exchange :/

 

Don’t forget to photobooth-pose with your SO! We completely forgot to do that >.< I really wanted to be able to have pictures print automatically for guests at favors, but the logistics were too much for me…if you or someone you know is tech savvy though, then it is doable.

@kbear18:  Ah I wish I’d thought of superhero masks. You could also have a chalkboard or dry erase board for people to write a message on…I had one then lost it >.< oops.

Some other prop suggestions I have are feather boas, foam swords, inflatable guitars and hammers, Venetian masks (found some at the dollar store), viking helmets, top hats, paper umbrellas, fans… Here are some links to prop templates.

What about a polaroid? Would that work?

It sort of takes away the instant gratification if you have to wait, and I think that’s why people love photobooths.

We are having a student photographer take the photos as well, no printer.  However, we will have a monitor in which the photographer will upload the photos for a slide show that gets updated throughout the reception so people can see their photos.  It will be a continuous display.

The photos will also be uploaded to a website for guest download and we will print out a photo to send with our thank you cards.

@kbear18:  We used a giraffe sculpture that was a strange wedding gift my parents’ received 32 years ago — It was a complete hit! It was in almost every single photo strip and it even had its own solo photoshoot. 🙂

I’m going to have a simple back drop and use props as well. But I’ll use “photobooth” on my apple to store the guests photos. 🙂

@kbear18:  I think you should print all the pics for the guest and include them in your thank you cards for them! How fun would that be?
