To get started, decide on the type of photo booth that you want (simple, theme related, etc). Then start gathering your materials!
What You Will Need:
- Fabric for backdrop (Curtains are great!)
- Props (Frames, chairs, tables, flowers, silly props, etc.)
- Memory Stick(s)
- Printer (optional)
- Extra lighting (optional)
Check out these various wedding photo booth styles:
1.Wood With Frame Cutouts
This is one of the more ambitious DIY wedding photo booths. To get this look, create cut outs in a wood or cardboard frame, add a festive backdrop with either fabric or wallpaper, and finish the look with framed photos of family. This itself is a large interactive prop that will keep guests occupied and entertained.

2. Outdoor Curtain
This is a simple, inexpensive, yet chic way of incorporating natural elements into the photo station. To enhance the look, props such as furniture (tables, sofas/chairs, picture frames, etc.) can be added. Since the natural light will change throughout the evening, each of your photos will have a unique look.
