I absolutely love the idea of having a photobooth. Unfortunately, renting an actual photobooth like in the below pictures is not in our budget, as fun as it would be!
I LOVED Mrs. Cupcake's photobooth pictures (obviously!)
I'm definitely interested in having a fauxtobooth, but I've seen a couple cute ideas and can't decide which I like better! First, I fell in love with a bold damask fabric backdrop, similar to this one:
It would be so easy to set up, and wouldn't be too terribly expensive. I don't think we'd need more than 5 or 6 yards of fabric at the most.
Then, I happened to see this idea on multiple wedding blogs and fell in love with it! I told my mom about it and she loves it too! It would definitely require more work (and what will I do with it afterward??), but the adorable pictures might just be worth it:
Regardless of which option we chose, I think we'll just have a camera set up on a tripod and will have the 10-second timer setting on. I think, if we have a sign, that people will be be able/willing to press the shutter button and then pose for their picture. I guess that would be more difficult if we went with the second option, though. I think it would still work, but it would be a little harder to get in place behind the "wall," rather than just in front of the backdrop. Anyway, afterwards we'll upload all of the pictures (along with the ones that guests upload to the computer we'll have out) onto a photo sharing site. I'll have cards - likely mini moo cards; I knew I'd find some way to use them! - at each place setting with the link for our guests so that they can check out all of the pictures from the day.
What do you think? Stick with the fabric backdrop - the easier, less expensive option? Or go for the more expensive "picture wall" that would require more work, but will also allow for some awesome pictures?
