I love a photo booth! It seems that they are fitting for almost any event nowadays. They always seem to draw a crowd and offer one more way for your guests to remember your event.
Anyone wanting to have an economical photo booth at an upcoming party or wedding? One of my favorite blogs Oh Happy Day is offering some fun, free printable photo booth props.

Ted and I built our “on a budget” wedding photo both from scratch. It took some work, but we were happy with the results. We wanted a cheesy home sweet home booth with a few simple props and a few places for people to interact with the background.
This project cost us about $20 to build (all we had to buy were 2 plywood sheets from Home Depot, roughly 3′ x 5′ each and a couple of thrift store props). We bought an instant photo printer so the photographer (who was helping us out for free) could instantly print a 4×6 color photo for each guest.
It was a hit and we are happy we had our booth…even happier that we did it for less than $200 total.
You can buy an epson instant color photo printer here for $139.95.
Below are a few photo booth photos from our wedding night (if anyone wants instruction on how we built out the background just let me know).
