DIY: Photobooth Props

I am so happy that more and more people are jumping on the DIY photo booth idea. In my wedding blog travels, I've found some more beautiful and hilarious photos of people in their photo booths which has served as a great source of inspiration for me!

My favorite part of this one is that the photographer framed the photo with some of the natural surroundings of what I'm guessing is their ceremony and/or reception site. This is especially relevant to us since we're getting married at my family's summer cottage which is where I spent 95% of my childhood summers. So there's a huge nostalgia factor which this photo booth takes into account so I love it even more.

I'm also a big fan of the photos that include props. The first prop I came across and fell in love with was the chalkboard since it gives the guests the ability to personalize their photos with their own words.

But I've also fallen in love with the idea of giving the guests props for their photos. This photo cracks me up.

Whatever we end up picking, I'd like to handle the props myself if at all possible. The moustaches would be easy enough to re-create and other props could either be borrowed or bought at a flea market/second hand store. However, it's good to know that -- in the inevitable situation where I have taken on too many DIY ideas to handle -- there are other options available. I found these amazing props from the Etsy seller lepapierstudio.

Now all I need to find is some sort of fabric backdrop. Preferably something neutral in color and something meaningful like a family quilt. Looks like I need to scour my grandmother's endless closet of family heirlooms. Sweet.
