Hold the actual phone…another ‘how to do something for cheap as chips when companies at wedding fairs want you to pay big bucks for it?’…that’s right kiddies! Put your purses away!
This time I am tackling the new big thing to have at weddings and parties…a photobooth.
Our photobooth went down a STORM at our big day…and it cost us nothing…zip…zilch…nada.
We set up a tripod with P’s camera on it, set to a 10 second timer. (A simple point and click will do…no need for a massive SLR).
We provided a suitcase full of fancy dress things. The hats, wigs, swords, glasses and whatnot where all from my dressing up box (yes…I know I am 26…but I have a suitcase of old fancy dress/halloween costumes in the loft!). If you don’t have a fancy dress box…you know…..because you are normal…then ask around…ask people with kids…. dig around and find that tiara from your hen do!
I made the word arrows and speech bubbles using card and a sharpie…easy as pie….and my wonderful brother-in-law printed off a few pieces and mounted them on sticks. I also sprayed an old picture frame gold and left it for people to use.
We used a curtained off wall (which was hiding gym apparatus) in our village hall and hung fairy lights over it to set the mood.
This cost us NOTHING to do….our friends and family just had to dress up, click the camera button, pose and then the camera did all the rest!
These are just a few of my favourite shots from our photobooth…… totally worth doing right?
I beg you not to PAY for this…that is mental when you could have this much fun for free.
