For those that don't know, there is a website called "the image is found" that has a great photo opp at weddings called the "Crazybooth". Actually, lots of photogs are doing this now. They somehow get guests to do silly poses, sometimes with props, make funny faces, etc. the image is found . photo blog

 

They sell a manual on how to do it, but its $150. I want to copy this idea, but adjust it a little so it can work for DWs. So here's the big question - how do you get people to be so sillyhuh.gif

 

The only thing I can think is to put silly "scene descriptions" on cards and guests pull one and then have to pose (kinda like charades, but with a pose rather than acting). Creative people can do whatever they want, but sometimes people need a prompt.

 

Has anyone experienced this in person or have any ideas? If the "scene description" is how it works, what are some possibilities? Here are some prompt ideas I've gathered from looking at photos:

 

re-enact ... (something that happened yesterday or a famous event)

impersonate...(the flintstones or 'the hills' people)

pretend you just found out...(your clothes are made of poison or the bride is really a man :) )

 

We will have some props too! Any ideas would be appreciated! thanks!

The ideas you have sound really good. I think the card thing is a great idea and some people are naturally funny so they won't need any guiding or props. I guess one thing you could do is have a whole bunch of silly pics and ask them to mimic the photo they see.

 

Sorry thats all I can think of right now. Maybe google drama games b/c I remember back from school doing things like freeze frame etc that you could use.

 

Good luck!

this sounds fun!

We did it for my Mom's 50th and it was cute- some just used the props and smiled, but it was still cute.... add a couple of cocktails and people might get creative! All it takes is someone to start it.... KWIM? You could have some cards as ideas and they may or may not get used. Have fun!

I think that's such a fun idea! Have you thought of having actions associated with props like a limbo stick (I don't know if that's what it's called) or hula hoops (don't know about getting these on the plane though) or those blow up pool floaty things (like the inner tubes that you put around your waist with the duck on the front or whatever), wow, I have no idea how to describe anything today! There's always snorkels and flippers, or having guys wear the coconut "bras" and grass skirts and doing hula dances, always amusing.

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
