    I have always thought the photo booth idea is adorable for a casual reception, but there was no way we could justify spending that much after the wedding.  God bless the creative DIYers that have come before me!  I did a search for DIY photo booths on here and didn't see anything, so I thought I'd share this:




    The Offbeat Bride has a great tutorial on how to set this up and I found two other articles that give instructions on how to create a "booth" with PVC pipe and fabric.  And I cannot believe it - my FI is totally excited!  He looked at the plans and got ideas for his own little tweaks and can't wait to build it!






    This etsy seller has a customizable PDF for 9.95 that are templates specifically for Photo booths:




    The photo booth software is $60, but all-in-all it's affordable and so much cheaper then hiring one!


    Hope you enjoy!!

        Oh thanks for posting!  I've been trying to figure out how to put together my own photo booth for our AHR and save costs at the same time. 


        We plan on doing lots of props for costumes to spice up the photos as we we will have alot of elderly guests coming.  We did this at our Destination wedding with a poloroid camera and it was so cute to see the older folks having fun with the costumes! 


        We are also going to let guests take 1 picture home as a favor and 1 picture will post to the guest book. 


        Thanks again for posting this!  Would love to see some more photo booth ideas!

            I'm so happy I just found this.  We're doing a DIY fabric photobooth for our AHR and I've been searching all over for the best way to set things up.  Thanks!
