WE made one…i found sheets the were really prety and stapeled them to the wall in one corner, then i had an antique suitcase filled with props and told everyone just to take fun pics with their own cameras and then in the thank you card I had a link to a site to upload pics.

 

No one used it…not one person πŸ™

 

I have heard of other brides making their own though and it it was a hit! Good luck!

I think the biggest thing is making sure you have a camera set up for people to take pictures. If people have to use their own camera, they will be less likely to use it (for one, not everyone will remember their camera!)

We have considered getting a Fuji Instax, setting up a “Faux-to Booth” area, and then having a clothsline style display area for people to hang up their developing pictures. Then I would put them in a photo guestbook. 

Alternately, you can use a digital camera and put them online for people to print later. 

I know that it can be really fun, but you have to make it as easy to use as possible. Also, having a DJ announce it before or after dinner would help make people aware that it’s there.

I’ve found a program called Photoboof which seems a bit complicated but all you need is a computer to make it work.  I’ve thought about having a photobooth but I’m worried I’d end up in the place as @baileyh.  Our families are really cool enough to enjoy a booth and we’re only inviting our closest friends for budget reasons so I think it will be a wish that won’t come true for me…
