First off I would just like to say that I got your messages loud & clear about the disposable cameras. Some were a little harsh but I just take it as tough love & Im moving on & asking bees for help once again. I truly appreciate all your help.
Fiance & I are old school but I dont want to do anything tacky lol. So DIY photo booth will be nice I think.
Fiance doesnt want to buy a polaroid camera. We do have access to a digital camera & would like to get one of those clicker things (sorry have no clue what its called) but one of those attachments so guests can take their own photos if need be.
Another thing I need to mention before asking this is we are having a small wedding that is mostly family so older people so they wont do the hashtag thing.
Im wondering since we arent doing a polaroid camera how would we do the photos?
Should we figure out a way to print them out? We do have access to a laptop but would need to buy a printer which would probably be more than a polaroid.
Should we have them available to view at the event & then mail them to them with thank you cards?
Or let them view later & print on their own if they want?
I really want to do this because we are having a brunch wedding & it will give people a little something extra to do besides the spiritual DUP dances we have planned. Plus I would love to have the photos myself.

I used this post as reference for my own DIY photobooth at my reception and it was a hit! I bought photobooth props from oriental trading.

I plan to get some props off Amazon. I was thinking of putting a selfie stick next to the props so that everyone can use the selfie stick to take pics. Maybe a sign that says send pics to us please and our phone number ? We’re having a small wedding (about 35 -40 guests) so no cost effective to do a photo booth.

Have you thought about just hiring a photobooth? By the time you buy a printer, paper, and all the additional accoutrements and contingencies, it may just be less expensive, as you can usually get good photobooth discounts on Groupon and at wedding expos.
What if your digital camera breaks? Or the battery dies? Are you going to change the paper every time it runs out? Do you really want to give up your personal camera to the chance that someone may accidentally damage it? Hiring a vendor to oversee those tiny little details will make it so much less stressful for you.
Just keep it simple!

Thank you for the link.
Yeah photobooths are so expensive especially not worth it for 30 people plus our wedding a bit vintage. I really dont want the real photobooth.
Might just post the photos for people to see & then send them one in their thank you card. We only have 30 people mostly family alot of who I see on a regular basis & alot who live in the same household.
Not worried about anyone breaking the digital camera. I trust my family. They wont actually be handling the camera just a button. Not worrying about anything running out either with so little people. Will buy so much film & once its gone thats it will move on to other things. Actually camera belongs to Future Father-In-Law who was a photographer so he maybe taking most of the pics. I just wanted the button if he was busy.

I’m doing one of these. Except the glitter version of what the seller has. I figured it would be fun to pass around for the night..
