Photo Booth Fad Done Fabulously

Photo booths have become all the rage at every event, party, and especially wedding receptions.

But why settle for an actual booth, that’s too cramped, too plain, and doesn’t allow everyone to see the fun?

How about creating your own, personalized background and have an actual photographer? This way is much more enjoyable for people to watch, and more special for you!

Clueless on ways to make that photo booth-esque look?

Here are many ideas ranging from super simple, to stunningly intricate!

1. Hanging Lights

Simple, yet magical. reminds me of the Wall of Lights at the Georgetown Event Center!

2. Circle Stands

An easy, yet fun way to bring in your entire color scheme!

5. Antique Door

How cute would it be if you could get your hands on some of these adorable doors! Keep in mind that with the right painting and distress technique, anything can look antique!

6. Screen Door Painting

Any screen will do! This over sized floral pattern is lovely, but if something with a pattern is more up your ally, try chevron!

7. Painted Floral Backdrop

booth8

May be easy if you are handy with a paintbrush, or maybe you could pass this project off to someone who is! So many options with color and style! The confetti is fun too!

8. Old Living Room Wall

booth9

How fun some tacky wall paper and holes in the wall can be! You could also take a more rustic approach and have the frames hang on wood.

DON”T FORGET THE SIGNS!

What fun is a photo booth without the chance to look silly! Consider these signs for some great laughs. Maybe even throw in some over sized glasses, hats, and boas!

Penny in the Shoe for Luck!

A penny in your shoe on your wedding day brings good luck! We all have heard of this tradition, but where did it come from? It is actually the end of a rhyme that you know very well… something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in her shoe. For some reason, the end of the rhyme seems to have been dropped off as of late. The sixpence or penny is supposed to bring prosperity to the bride.

 

Traditionally, the bride’s father is supposed to be the one that puts the penny in the shoe. I think it makes for a great photo op too!

If you can’t stand the idea of a penny rolling around in your shoe, you can just tape it to the bottom, in the arch so you aren’t walking on it.

There are also lots of fun things that you can do with the penny after your big day!

Will you be wearing a penny in (or on) your shoe on your wedding day?

First Look Photo Session – Yay or Nay?

For those of you who haven’t yet discovered this trend, a “first look” photo session is when the bride and groom get to see each other dressed in their wedding attire before the ceremony. It gives them a chance to see each other before everyone else is staring them down as the bride walks down the aisle. On one hand it makes for some great photographs, one the other hand, the guests don’t get to see them groom’s priceless reactions when he first gets to see his bride.

So what do you think, are first look photos worth the guests missing the groom’s first reaction? Yay or Nay?
