Fun Photo Booths

By: Chelsea DeSimone

At almost every wedding I go to these days, the bride and groom choose to have a photo booth set up. This is a great way to unite friends and families and to take silly pictures that the couple and their guests can remember. However, since they are so common these days, we’ve come up with some unique photo booth ideas that will set your wedding apart from the others.

Vintage Prints 

We think that vintage photo booths are pretty rad. Instead of your photo booth taking color pictures, ask to have the images shot in a sepia tone. Also, head to your local thrift store and gather some old memorabilia that ties in with your wedding day. This can be a great cheap alternative.


This idea can really function in two ways: first, it is a fun photo booth for your guests and, second, you can use the pictures as a guest book. Request that the photo booth use a Polaroid camera. Polaroids have a white border around them so guests can write the bride and groom personalized messages on their pictures. Pop the pictures into some cute square envelopes and put them in a book or display them on some cute twine with mini clothespins.

Backdrop Beauty 

Instead of needing to incorporate lots of props into your photo booth, opt for a colorful and detailed background. This glitter backdrop paired with different sized fans makes for a pretty sweet layout. Guests can still have just as much fun in the photo booth, but with more limited props.

As you can see, you can really get creative with the fun choices you can make when planning your photo booth. Guests really do love these stations. Often, the photographers will allow guests to take home some of the pictures; if you’re lucky, they will even give the bride and groom a copy of every picture taken that night. How sweet is that?!
