Wedding Photo Booth Backdrop Ideas to DIY

There are two main styles of photo booths: open and enclosed or self-contained. You know, the ones that you walk into. Today, we will concentrate on the open ones. For the self-contained ones you are better off renting them from a professional.

Making an open photo booth is very simple, you will need a backdrop and a multitude of props.

  • Let’s start with the backdrop. We could hang a ready-made wall decoration or we could craft a one-of-a-kind backdrop with colored streamers, paper pompons, pinwheels, honeycomb shapes, paper flowers or balloons. For a stunning result, match the photo booth style to your wedding theme or colors.
  • For the props fill a suitcase or a coat rack with giant party glasses, hats, feather boas, wigs, parasols, confetti, funny Snap signs or anything else that comes to mind! Scour your home and look for more props. You’ll be surprised at the things you’ll find.
