    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 silly

    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.

            I LOVE this idea. I think it is very cute and it's becoming very popular.

              Oh - good ideas newbride! We have to make a trip to Wal-mart the day before the wedding, so we can just pick up some extra props there :)
