    I have seen pictures of where you bring a background for people to take pictures in front of and have a photographer take photos of them then…I would do that, but not just props unless it’s very orgranized and tables know when their pictures will be taken.

    Some examples…beach background and bring inflatable balls, palm tree, sunglasses, hats, bathing suits (booze can make this amusing), etc.

     

    Winter…styrofoam snowman, santa/elf props, big candy canes, winter clothing items

     

    You could probably do a movie theme if it’s popular (star wars, lord of the rings, harry potter) and get very creative with it too!

    I think the backgrounds are plastic sheets…I’ll try to find some for you!

    We just got married and hung a Polaroid frame like this (made of plywood, with our names and date) from a tree with a bunch of props in a basket.  I made a sign that requested that guests use my camera as well as their own, and left my camera there. I dont have pics handy, but it was a huge hit 🙂

    @jessyrez:  They have to verify that the links aren’t spam and then they’ll post…some you make as stand alone, some you can do one a printed plastic background sheet but I haven’t found them yet.  I like the idea of bales of hay in the background for a fall wedding!  You can stack them!

    Thanks, yeah, we got a ton of compliments! I saw the idea of Pinterest. We used a half sheet of plywood, whatever that size is – 3’x3′ maybe? The sides were all 3″ except the bottom which was 6″. Painted it white and then wrote in Sharpie (and I have to say, ours was even cuter than this inspiration picture!)

    search up “faux-to booth” here on the bee – some Mrs. Bloggers have done the DIY “booth” and they look great! there’s one that did fabric and stood it up using PVC pipes – that’s my plan for mine 🙂

    @jessyrez:  I picked up frames like that from Michaels (using their 40% off coupons!) and painted them different metallic colors! Everyone loved them!
