landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country


Stop what you’re doing right now and go here and scroll down a bit (I’ll wait).

This couple made their own standing photobooth.  Better yet, the GROOM made the booth as a surprise to his wife.  The couple did not want to spend the $1,500 to rent the photobooth, so the groom, as a surprise, made one for their wedding for $400.  Four hundred dollars.  Yes.

Who is with me in thinking that this guy needs to blog about the building of said photobooth?  Share the wealth (err, knowledge)!

UPDATE:

The couple posted on their blog about how the made the photobooth, and of course I had to share!  Enjoy!

  1. I want a photobooth something fierce, but it is definitely not in the budget! I have seen couples who designate a corner in the reception space where they set up a backdrop and a camera and let people have a free-for-all there. It resulted in similar photos as a photobooth, but without the cost (they had a camera that printed photos on sticky paper).

  2. He posted the instructions on his blog!

    @Sarah I love the idea of using a fun back drop and those Pogo (?) cameras, too.

    @Kate I’ll have to update the post with a link to his instructions, haha!
