The wedding photobooth

If you are a follower of the wedding-blog scene (which, I admit, I have become since getting engaged), you’ll know about the photobooth trend. This idea has been taken all different ways – you can actually rent “real” photobooths (with the pull-back curtain and you get your 4 photos in a row); I’ve seen lots of examples of people just putting up some kind of fabric backdrop and setting up a camera (don’t forget the goofy props for people to play with!); and I’ve also stumbled across examples like these…

and

{green wedding shoes}

How cool are those???

I love the creativity of actually constructing a set! And the cut-out picture frames for people to stand behind is ingenious. So much fun!

We want people to come to our wedding and play! And what better way to bring out the kid in folks than to give them a playset to goof around in? Plus we hope it will insure us awesome pictures of our guests.

I’ve hinted at our plans for a photobooth with this post about the mustaches I made…

And now you’ve seen the chair I restored from yesterday.
This guy will be in front of our photo faux wall for people to sit in!

Our plan is to design a set up that basically combines the two ideas up above: we love the intricate wallpaper with all the smaller photos scattered around the big cut-out frames. But we also like the idea of having people sit in front of the wall, too.

We still have to figure out how to construct the thing…and we’re hoping M’s dad will be a big help there for us!
I don’t want to give too much away. After all, keeping some things a surprise is part of the fun 🙂
But I am very excited for this project and can’t wait to see how it turns out!
