I really want to do some type of photobooth. My budget won’t allow us to rent one, so I decided we would do a faux one. I need ideas for a backdrop! I would like to DIY it, but all the ones I’ve seen just don’t seem like they would fit with the look of the rest of the wedding.
Here’s an idea of what my wedding will look like…
Our tables will have a teal (DB-Oasis) tablecloth with a B&W Damask print runner.
Centerpieces are white rose pomanders on eiffel tower vases with B&W pearl accents.
We will have a Black, White, and Teal themed candy buffet and our cake will most likely be a simple white tiered cake with black accent.
Kind of going for a simple and elegant look, I’m not really into a lot of bling, lace, frills, etc.
I thought of just doing a simple black backdrop, but I want to see if any of my fellow bees can give me some inspiration!

You could get some plain black fabric and put it over a backdrop, then use white christmas/twinkly lights over that. To diffuse the lights, put another layer of fabric (chiffon or tulle in black color) over that. Voila! Sounds like it would go well with your parisian/elegant/simple theme.

@TogetherThroughLife: You know, we will have white Christmas lights hanging from the exposed beams of the ballroom…this could definitely work!! Thanks!

@MissCountryGirl727: Glad I could be of help! It should be really easy to set up. You don’t even need it to be that wide. 5 ft. width is perfectly fine.

- Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall
We rented pipe and drape (that doubled as our ceremony backdrop)

I am also doing a faux-to booth! For my backdrop, I’m going to make a ribbon backdrop. Get one piece of string and/or ribbon and tie different colors of ribbon to it. Then I’m going to hang that on the wall with the long ribbon strips hanging down. Does that make sense? You could do one with teal, black, and white ribbon! Simple and clean.

I use curtain panels. Get 72 long and get at least 3 panels if you go that route. One wedding I used a blanket and I sewed the top into a curtain loop, it happen to work for the color perfectly! I match my couples wedding colors.

I made mine as we wanted a bold pattern and color to match our wedding colors. It was about $60 for fabric but I an going to use it to make a duvex cover for my spare room.
Here is what the color looked like.
You could do the same demask print or a coordinating black and white pattern. Pretty much anything goes. Good luck! 🙂

@MissCountryGirl727: Whenever I read you post, this is immediately what I thought of.
Chevron is really popular right now, and in teal it would look good and fit your colors.
I have seen pins on pinterest where people have used wallpaper as a photobooth back drop, and just remember PVC piping is amazing.

Or if you have left over programs or invitations you can make a back drop with that
