    15 Insanely Awesome DIY Wedding Photo Booth Backgrounds

    Making a custom photo booth backdrop and recruiting that friend with the too-expensive camera can create some budget wiggle room. DIY one of these ideas for a fun backdrop for memorable photos you'll treasure (and guests will hate) forever and ever, amen.

    1. Graffiti

    Now, we don't encourage tagging, BUT parking the photographer in front of existing grafitti, or DIY-ing your own on nonpublic property is highly encouraged.

    2. Layered Pendant Bunting

    Just about any average photo booth can have pendant bunting, but this pendant-on-pendant version makes white dresses and suits pop in photos.

    3. Super Mario Bros.

    The bride can play Princess Peach with this 8-bit video game classic. Just cut off your uncle at the open bar before he turns into Bowser.

    4. Colorful Ticket Background

    Scout out some colorful ticket rolls for a bigger impact than overdone flowing ribbons.

    5. Sparkling Sequins

    XL sequins catch the light and create movement for fun times, (i.e., champagne swaying). Sure you have to pin each up to the board but it's a wedding, basically the definition of a special occasion.

    6. Live Flower Wall

    A fairytale forest wedding wouldn't be right without some floral photo booth action. Fake the lush vertical landscape without ruining the natural environment by stapling living flowers onto a large piece of plywood and filling in blank spots with moss.

    7. Vintage Doors

    Put some Craigslist finds to use (along with some sandpaper for the perfect aged look) as a hinged backdrop. Bonus points if you rig up a lit chandelier, too.

    8. Holiday String Lights

    This quick and dirty trick looks like a magical art installation for little effort. Let them pool at the floor for added ambience.

    9. Tassle-Topped Ribbons

    Posed in front of a ribbon backdrop? Been there, done that. But neon and metallic tassles change everything.

    10. Reclaimed Wood Planks

    Search out some wide salvaged planks or fake the aging with stain and sandpaper. The more texture, the better!

    11. Tissue Paper Bouquet

    Use all the tissue paper you kept in old shirt boxes to bring some lush floral variety to an indoor wedding with this vibrant background. No water needed!

    12. Giant Paint Chip

    If you have the weirdest of wedding colors, just paint your own giant paint swatch to take the easy way of tying them into the photo booth.

    13. Vintage Door Photo Frame

    It's like your own Instagram photo come to life, except exponentially better.

    14. 3-D Salon Wall

    blog.etsy.com

    When you walk around the room the portraits' eyes follow you. Because the portraits are just your guests posing in the empty photo frames in this backdrop.

    15. Hanging Photo Frame

    Dangle a faux fancy painted photo frame from an overhead tree to create this little setup. (And you could even use the photo frame afterward in your love nest, unless the reception gets really wild.)
