You hire a photographer to capture the your big day’s most beautiful moments. You book a photo booth to let loose and have a little fun. Personalized photo booths are a great way to let guests ham it up, socialize, and snap memories the professional photographer would likely never catch. Plus, the photos can double as party favors.
Fun, custom props will bring your booth to life. From just-married mustaches to cardboard cutouts, here are our top 10. Say cheese!
Words & Sayings
Put a blank chalkboard by the photo booth and ask guests to write their best piece of advice for a happy marriage and then pose with it.
Pre-written sayings in the form of a speech bubble are the perfect way to allow guests to express themselves without having to come up with the jokes on their own.
Every wedding these days has a hashtag so guests and the bride and groom can easily find all of the photos on social media. Making yours a photo booth prop is an easy way to ensure it gets remembered and used.
Every photo booth needs the classics: kisses and mustaches. Display them in a creative way that fits the theme of your wedding, like in a beer bottle, mason jar, or vintage vase.
“Team Bride” and “Team Groom” foam fingers are a fun way for guests to remind the happy couple which one they met first. (Or, who they like better!)
Create an oversized “Polaroid” or picture frame with your wedding date. Bonus: having photos commemorating the date on the fridge ensures you’ll never miss an anniversary. Wink wink.
Even if you’re not having a black tie reception, guests will appreciate the chance to get “dressed up,” flash some bling, and toast to the happy couple in a photo. Glittery bow ties, diamond rings, and champagne glasses are the perfect way to do just that.
Husband and Wife
“Mr.” and “Mrs.” are props that will make for cute pictures of the newlyweds, but also for parents, grandparents, and married friends.
Of course, you can always skip the props in lieu of a themed photo booth, like a classic kissing booth.
X’s and O’s
Staying simple is sometimes the easiest way to keep things timeless and elegant. Trust us, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful “X” and “O” duo.
