    I agree with the light blue. You won’t have details disappearing in the background and there aren’t a lot of colors that look BAD with blue. 🙂

    I’d go for a pattern. It adds a lot of interest to the pictures. And very live colors.

    We use white, black, bright green, and maroon.  White is a bit bland, and people tend to get “lost” in the black.  Green can be good, but is such a bright color you better love it if you use it.  Overall, I think red/maroon is the best.  It complements a lot of people (brings out skin tones), and makes the pictures much more exciting.  I’d lean towards the warmer side of things, unless you can bring a lot of color into it other ways (props, etc).

    If you branch out beyond solid colors, I’d definitely recommend a pattern.  We had one wedding couple use their own antique fabric, and those came out amazing.  The background really made a difference.  Depending on the size of your booth, you can use just about any designer fabric (and it’s cheap at local fabric stores).  There’s always that damask pattern that’s getting very popular now.

    Last, it looks like light blue is winning in the polls.  I saw this page, might be a good visualization of how the colors might look:

    Here’s a nice patterned background:

    And another pattern with some light blue:

    Good luck!

    No black. We just attended a wedding where the backdrop was black and our photos didn’t turn out great. Dark colors get lost and it’s not so flattering for those of us with fair skin…
