How to make your wedding photo booth stand out - 5 personalised ideas

While there are plenty of fun options from wedding photo booth vendors these days, there's nothing like adding a personal touch to really make yours memorable and an absolute hit with your loved ones.
 

Admittedly, wedding photo booths are huge crowd pleasers at weddings. After all, there are only a few occasions we get to dress up and have a camera at the ready. And while photo booth vendors have plenty of cool props and decor these days, there's nothing like a personal touch to really make yours stand out and unique to your celebration. Here are a few ideas (and they're budget-friendly, too!) to get you inspired. 

 

#1 Tie it with the theme

If your wedding has a theme, tie your photo booth decor together with it. Garden-inspired wedding? Think floral garlands, or even whimsical oversized flowers. Suitcases, globes and paper planes are great additions to a travel-themed bash while crystal accents and gold candelabras will undoubtedly luxe up a glamorous soiree. 

 

#2 Consider the backdrop

The backdrop sets the scene for those happy snapshots, and an inviting backdrop will have absolutely everyone getting snap-happy. 

Budget tip! You don't need to spend extra cash to give your photo wall a more personal touch. Repurpose your ceremony backdrop or even a printed aisle from your ceremony for your photo wall.

 

#3 Signages

Again, repurpose, repurpose, repurpose! We love the customised signages from the likes of Kustomise, KCottage Studios that can be used for your ceremony, photo wall and even for your home decor after the wedding. 

 

#4 Calligraph a quote 

Got a favourite love or marriage quote? Or song lyrics that you can relate to? Get it calligraphed on a backdrop (this can be a large cloth, laminate or even paper). If you've got great penmanship, you can even get it done by yourself. 

 

#5 The props

Cardboard moustaches, paper diamond rings and Mr & Mrs signs are cute but are a dime a dozen. Your names, wedding dates or initials are simple but meaningful options. Or print photos of yours and his faces as stick props (consider various funny expressions!) - this way, nobody will miss a shot of taking a photo with you.
