Photobooths have become almost essential in weddings these days. Honestly, you have to admit that it looks a hundred times better than having the whole family standing around a table of half-eaten food. Here, we’ve rounded up some interesting ideas and alternatives that you can adapt to spice things up:

#01 Naturally Changing Backdrop
Instead of seeing those windows as a disadvantage, use them as a backdrop for your photobooth, and enjoy the changing colours of the sky (and view!) as the sun goes down.

#02 Mug Shots
What a great way to keep a photographic record of everyone who was at your wedding! Skip the guestbook and instead ask your guests to write their name and a “crime” that they’d committed with you in the past on the chalkboard for their photos.

#04 GIF Videos
We don’t know of any vendors in our region who are doing this just yet, but it’s really cool. Using the green screen concept, this captures stop motion movements and combines them to make really loud and cool graphics.

#05 Instagram Instant Pictures
Since most of your guests probably have Instagram, you won’t even need another camera for your photobooth. Just have them take a selfie, hashtag it, and print! Besides Say Cheese! and Instaprint, WOW Photobooth also currently launched their Wowgram.

#07 3D Backdrop
An idea that was inspired by the Trickeye Museum Korea, this is actually available also in Resorts World Sentosa and a similar concept in Penang. Instead of just having a flat backdrop, do something astounding that requires your guests to get creative.

#08 Magazine Covers
Because it is everyone’s dream to grace the cover of a magazine, right? Just be sure not to offend any existing publications with your “magazine” name.

#10 Slow-Motion Videos
This was probably the most widely shared photobooth idea last year, and is one that requires a lot of work and skill on the part of the photobooth provider. For a simpler option, make a photobooth compilation video instead. It’ll make a nice post-event video too.
