For many, their wedding day is the single most anticipated event of someone’s lifetime. It is a day when attention is focused on the bride and groom. To some extent, attention is focused on individual aspects of the celebration itself, as a reflection of the bride and groom. This is where much of the anxiety associated with weddings arises from; the idea that if any part of the wedding does not go as planned, that bad apple may “spoil the bunch”.
Weddings are the best place for a photo booth experience for a number of reasons. Firstly, weddings are usually long, whole-day events so a wedding photo booth is ideal for this sort of occasion. Secondly, a wedding is a great party experience so people are happy and in good spirits and so will want to have a great time! A photo booth isn’t a photo booth without props, however, and a wedding is a great opportunity for great props! Read on to discover 7 great wedding booth photo prop ideas.
Polaroid frame – everyone loves the nostalgic feeling we get when we see a polaroid from times gone by. Now you can recreate the nostalgia in your wedding photo booth. A simple white frame is a very easy and cheap idea, which will allow your guests to have a really good time and come up with some great photo opportunities. You can also add a design text underneath the frame. Here is a tutorial for a sturdy and reusable wooden frame!
Thought clouds and speech bubbles – these props are great for adding humor to your pictures. They provide words to your photos. You can get text like “Tying the knot”, “Future Trophy Wife” or “Taken”, making it fun for your guests. You could even get blank ones to write your own unique messages and words on.
Hashtag sign – you can create your own wedding hashtag sign or banner so that you’re your guests can include in it their pictures. That way you get a link to all of their pictures on social media.
Hats and wigs – a selection of fun hats and wigs will always go down well, particularly when the champagne is flowing! Imagine your grandma and grandpa donning a red afro or electric-blue long mane!
Glasses – oversized glasses, sunglasses, even cardboard glasses on sticks, these are all great inclusions in your wedding prop box!
Accessories – feather boas, Hawaiian leis, blow up guitars, fake mustaches/beards, masks, these are all excellent ideas for your photo booth. Your guests will have a great time trying on all of the different props and take awesome snaps.
Emoji props – these are bang on trend right now and will go down a storm, particularly with the young wedding guests at your party.
Top tips when
choosing photo booth props
Have a theme
This could be a color palette theme, which means that
all of your props are in line with your wedding colors or it could be that you
choose props that are of certain colors. There are loads of colors that are
considered in trend right now. Think black, white and gold (chalkboard style)
or romantic dusty pinks.
When choosing your photo booth props, think of everyone on your guest list from young to old. Make sure you choose something that everyone will have fun with. Also, if there will be young children at your wedding, make sure all of your props are appropriate!
Who doesn’t like cheese? Picture Perfect had the pleasure of participating in a particularly cheesy event this year- Cheeselandia came to Denver! They brought more mouth-watering Wisconsin cheese than you could shake a stick at. Of course, they also had a live band, drinks and gear to give away!
In February 2019, Picture Perfect had the pleasure of participating in Cupid’s Undie Run, a “brief,” mile(ish) fun run that takes place in the middle of a BIG party – all to find a cure for neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic tumor disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 births. These are the kinds of events we at Picture Perfect love to attend- a great celebration for a great cause.
For Valentine’s Day 2019, Picture Perfect had the pleasure of heading to Legacy Village in Castle Pines for their Valentine’s Day Celebration. This beautiful senior living community plays host to a celebration of Valentine’s Day every February 14th, and there’s no better way to make memories- both funny and romantic- than a photo booth.
Congratulations Laura and Samuel!! These two tied the knot at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds with a beautiful wedding and reception, and Picture Perfect was thrilled to capture their memories with our enclosed photo booth. The venue hall was a perfect size the for crowds around the photo booth. Guests had space to try on props, and sign the memory booth with no issues. Check out these awesome pictures from the photo booth rental!
How do you bring the 21st century to a vintage wedding? Invite a photo booth! Today’s wedding from Rhiannon and Johnny was the perfect mix between a garden party and a vintage wedding. The ceremony was held on the Highlands Ranch Mansion grounds just before sunset, with the mansion providing a perfect background for the bride and groom.
When you think about Prom, the first thought is usually how to not freezing in the Colorado weather (even in late April!). Well, thankfully, the Cheyenne Mountain Resort, in Colorado Springs, has a similar thought on their minds, thus resulting in their heated entrance. The interior of the resort mimicked the exterior of the building with an Ohio Rubble style design that gave the resort a lovely earth feel to compliment the mountainous terrain surrounding the resort. When you are dropped off or escorted out of the car, truck, or limousine you’ll be greeted with heat instead of an artic breezes. When the Air Academy asked us to be a part of their Prom it brought joy to my heart. Getting to watch teens enjoy a night of beautiful clothing and wonderful people is always a great experience.
Picture Perfect got to enjoy sunny Vail, Colorado when we brought out black pop-up photo booth to Kara and Mac’s wedding reception. The Sonnenalp Hotel was the perfect setting for Kara and Mac’s ceremony and reception. It offered an intimate lawn ceremony and a large ballroom for the celebration! With the photo booth tucked neatly into the corner of the ballroom, Kara and Mac’s family and friends were able to take pictures and party all night long! Kara and Mac requested a green screen with their booth rental, so their guests could choose the background for each shot on the photo strip, adding a flair of color and variety to our standard photo booth! Check out these awesome photo strips of our fabulous guests!!
Thanks for having Picture Perfect Photobooth Rentals as a part of your celebration!
