It’s been going on for a year or so, and I don’t know where it came from. It was probably just somebody being silly one day, and then it went from there! (Well, I guess thinking of silly things for props).

I’ve only known about it for the past year with people gluing them to little wooden dowels.  A lot of people are using them in their photobooth setups or as a wedding party it’s a posed shot.  For some reason it’s become pretty popular because people think they are fun and hilarious.  Personally, I think they are kind of silly but that’s just me.  Don’t get me wrong, my FI and I know how to have fun and be silly, but if I asked my FI to pose with a moustache on a stick he’d ask me WTH for?!  It’s just a trend and probably won’t last long I’m guessing.

I accidently stumbled into this trend. Actually, I never thought of it as a trend–haven’t people been drawing mustaches on pictures for years?

I was gifted a “mustache mug” from my FH. I did (and do) think it is hilarious and silly and totally just a fun thing. Who doesn’t need a little silliness in their life? We used the “mustaches on a stick” in our engagement pictures. I swear I didn’t know how prevalent the trend was. In fact, I haven’t seen that many weddings (maybe I’m reading the wrong blogs?) But I still like our pictures. They’re cute, and they remind me of that first gift.

BTW, so what if you find out something that you’re doing is a trend? If you don’t do something that you want to do because it’s a trend, isn’t that just as bad?

You should do whatever you want, trend or not. If you like it, do it. For real. 🙂

I honestly dont get what the big deal about the fake moustaches are. I think they are kind of ridiculous!

We’re going to do the fake mustaches for our fauxto booth. Not because it’s trendy, but because we like mustaches.

My FI has a goatee, and we’re not doing the photobooth thing.  No moustaches here.  Just a FI with a goatee.

Not sure where that trend started either, but I like seeing LOTS of props if you’re doing a photobooth!  If we did one, I’d have a pirate photo booth (we’re on the coast).  Arrrrgh!

I liked it at first but now I just think they’re soooo over done and everywhere and I’m kind of over it. It’s kind of like that song you hear at the beginning of summer that you like but then at the end of summer you turn the radio off because you’ve heard it way too much! They’re cute and fun but I can’t stand seeing them anymore lol

What I “get” now is that lots of wedding guests have no idea with what is “in vs. out” for a wedding at all and what could be perceived to us as overdone, might be brand new and oh so innovative to the guests.  Unless the other guest is a bee or reads every bridal blog, I don’t think anybody would think it’s overdone!

That’s the beauty of this site.  We stay on top of trending and have fun with it!

I say go for it!  Do the ‘stache!

I saw it on another person’s site to get ideas for a fauxtobooth that I’m doing and I thought it was classic just like the big goofy glasses. So I’m doing them because I think they’re fantastically silly!! 🙂

I think that they can be a fun prop especially if you have memories of paper mustaches as a kid.  I actually like the prop idea… especially since you can pick things that fit your style.  But I don’t think it’s for everyone.  I’ve been to bunches of weddings and have never seen a photobooth real or faux, but I like the idea of making your day playful and fun.  One of my inspiration weddings was on New Year’s Eve, and the favors were New Year’s crowns and top hats.  The photos are fun, festive and memorable.

Well, clearly at least one of the guests at our wedding liked them:
