We made our own photo booth and it was the highlight of our wedding. We’ve even had people ask to rent it out for their own events. It’s complicated and I’m much too lazy to type it all up but you can read all about it in this thread…

My Fiance and I were going to buy a polaroid camera, but I think the last instant camera they had was discontinued. You can still buy them online, but they are not cheep. We’re thinking of just using our regular digital camera and buying a little printer to set up next to it. The guests can plug the camera in and print of their photos. Our guest book was a DIY project I did involving envelopes in a scrapbook. I want guests to put their photo in with their little advice/well wishes card. I’m thinking of doing a little poem to let them know they should print one up for that purpose and one for themselves. So maybe you could buy a scrapbook and have them tack the photo in with a little message? Or you could just buy a photo album and have them put a copy inside.

Are you planning on using any props? I can’t wait to make some! I’m not sure what I’ll use though…

I am making a ghetto photo booth. I’m going to hang a curtain and then hang an elegant empty photo frame in front of it for people to stand behind. I’m making a sign that directs guests to take a photo using the provided digital camera or their own; there will be a small jar with slips of paper, directing guests to email their photos to a group Flickr page.

We’ll see how it works…!
