Happy hump day + first day of fall! I love Wedding Wednesday! I love anything to do with weddings! Not just because we are planning our wedding, but I love weddings, everything about them.
I love the idea of having a photo booth, but because I am a bride on a budget, renting a photo booth just isn't in the cards. It seems lately I have been seeing a lot about DIY photo booths, so naturally I have been doing a little bit of research on it to see if we can make it work.
I found that there are a lot of different options out there:
i) Photo Apps! You can download different apps that you can use for a DIY photo booth, like Custom Booth or Wedding Party. If you set up a tripod, with an iPad, open the app, and viola. You can upload the pictures the next day and share to social media sites. Or I have even thought about printing them out and including in the thank you cards? Another option is to have guest take pictures with their own phones and have them upload and to social media - be sure to use hashtags. Wedding Party App has a cool photo booth feature where it takes pictures and you can arrange like the classic photo booth strip.
ii) Selfie Sticks! Place a selfie stick on each table, with a few props and a cute sign encouraging guest to take pictures and post to Instagram or even a wedding app such as Wedding Party. You can find a selfie stick for just $5 at Five Below.
I really would love have a DIY photo booth area and use on of the two back drops!
i) A blush rose back drop. How dreamy. It would tie into the romantic theme of the wedding, and the go with the blush color I want for the bridesmaid dresses. You can purchase this over at Swooned Magazine. It does come at a hefty price. Possible I could make my own? Lauren Conrad's DIY Rosebud Garland tutorial may be the way to go.
ii) I really like the idea of having some kind of frame that guest can hold and snap a picture.
