15 Photo Booth Ideas for a Fun Wedding Reception

Let your guests snap a few shots to remember the occasion.
by Andrea Fowler

Nothing breaks the ice at a wedding quite like a photo booth. A fun backdrop, a few blush-inducing props and in no time you'll have friends and family mingling in front of the camera. It's especially great to treat guests to a photo booth when it's a formal occasion. After all, it's not an everyday occurrence to find yourself dolled up in a nice dress or suit with a camera at the ready—guests will love the opportunity to capture the moment. Whether you're renting or DIYing, get inspired by some of our favorite set-ups.
