Hi! We’re having a photos booth and it included props. Wondering what the consensus is on props. I’ve never like using props, i like just getting a nice picture when I’ve used photo booth at other people’s weddings. What’s the general feeling on props?
Good question!! I should’ve said I’m having a hard time finding space for the photo booth in our reception hall. It’s a small photo booth (the iPad with a light around it-looking one) but even so it’s feeling tricky to find space for it. I’m trying to find a way to make the photo booth take up as little space as possible - aka not using/displaying the props but am I taking away a fun component of the photo booth from the guests? Will the props be missed or do people not care for them anyway? lol
I had props at mine and it was a hit. Everyone uses props pretty much. And they don't have to be expensive at all! You can even print out some signs thatre fun like "came here for the cake" or "team bride" and put it on sticks and that can be used as props
I love photo booths! I don’t personally use most props when I take a photo booth pic, but others guests will use them. Our photo booth pictures turned out so fun from our wedding! Many guests at our wedding put on the funny glasses, hats, etc that our photo company provided.

Most of my signs I literally made on PowerPoint and printed them out on cardstock. I found some fun fonts and I just took the glass from the frame, traced it, and cut the cardstock so it would fit. Most were 8x10 frames with the exception of my cupcake flavor frames which were 3x5. It’s super easy!
My seating chart I did not print myself. I bought a template from Etsy and typed all the names and table numbers. I will take it to a local print shop to print as it is poster sized.
We're making our own photo booth using one of those Fuji Instax cameras and a simple backdrop. We aren't supplying any props. I think a lot of people like them to take fun pictures with but I don't think people will be disappointed if there aren't any. We did buy some blow up instruments and it came with some funny glasses so maybe people will use those as props but nothing specific for the photo booth.
