Wedding Recap: DIY photo booth

We knew we wanted to have a photo booth at our wedding…but there was no way we were going to pay the outrageous prices to have one.  So I started some searching and found a GREAT link on the Wedding Bee blog that detailed how to build your own photo booth using cheap PVC pipe.

There are two links below – read them both if you plan on DIYing one.  And this photo booth can be used for any event – weddings, birthdays, regular ol’ parties.  Super easy to setup.

Helpful hint: If you have your measurements already known, you can just cut the PVC pipes to size (for free) using the cutter provided at Home Depot. 

And as for the backdrop, we just bought a fun print sheet set at Ross for less than $8.

And for the camera, we used a tripod with our own digital camera.  This setup does depend on someone always taking the picture for you, but that didn’t seem to be an issue.

Lastly, for a successful photo booth – you need PROPS!  The more the merrier.  Funny hats, glasses, wigs, costumes, white boards – it’s all good stuff to have.  Plus, it’s not bad to have a bit of the alcohol flowing to get people in the mood. Smile

Here are some fun pics from our DIY photo booth:

Okay, this way might not give you “perfect” shots like a professional booth would give.  But we felt this option was best for our budget and still gave us fun pics and gave the guests something fun to do during the reception.
