Your wedding day should be impressive, fabulous and magical. You should be over the moon with excitement, but so should your guests. In order to avoid having a wedding at which people get bored or feel sorry for themselves ( the latter is harder to avoid) you should consider giving your guests a fun thing to do. Something that isn’t complicated or require too much work on their side but is fun and entertaining. I am talking about a DIY photo booth! Your guests can photograph themselves and have a blast while doing so. You also get lots of pictures of your loved ones, so that’s a plus.
How to create your own DIY Photo Booth?
First of all, you need to think of the materials you’ll need in order to create your DIY photo booth. Here’s a list of the basic objects needed:
- Digital point-and-shoot camera
- Camera tripod
- Remote shutter release
The first 3 are pretty straightforward so they don’t need much explaining, however, here is what you need to know: place the camera on the tripod and turn on the flash. Connect the remote shutter release to the camera so that guests can take their own photos. It might be useful to have some Polaroid cameras as backup.
Now, the backdrop and props are essential for a creative DIY photo booth. Pick a colored, patterned piece of fabric to use as backdrop. For an indoor wedding, place the fabric on a wall. For an outdoor one, hang the fabric on a curtain rod, secure with rope and nail on the ground. For the props for your DIY photo booth the best idea is to go on a scavenger hunt. Use scarves, hats, glasses, frames and tiny chalkboards on which your guests can write you messages. Make some lips, moustaches or even ties and provide them to your guests.
That’s it. The main idea is that you can personalize your DIY photo booth to your preferences. Perhaps you’d like a themed DIY photo booth or a more simple one. However you might like it to be, a DIY photo booth is a great way to entertain your guests! Would you like a DIY photo booth at your wedding?
