Photo Booth Ideas
October 17th, – Not everyone wants an over-the-top showy wedding, and that’s A-OK! Sometimes you can say more with understated class, and carefully-chosen accents, than you can with bright colors and baroque design elements everywhere. This can be true of everything from your basic signage to larger elements like the backdrops you use for your head table or photo booth.
With so many people choosing to add photo booths to their wedding, we thought we’d take a moment to address those who want to keep things on the simple side. There are plenty of photo booth backdrops you could deploy that still make your photo booth interesting, without being garish or distracting.
Keeping It Simple: Finding A Basic Photo Booth Backdrop That Isn’t Too Showy
- Flat colors
Why be fancy? Flat-color backdrops are extremely inexpensive, so you could have several available for use for what it would cost to have one fancy or customized photo booth backdrop. That way, guests could swap out based on their own preferences.
Or, pick all the colors to be your favorites – matching the design of the wedding – so that every photo booth picture will keep to the overall style.
Whenever you’re fading between two different colors on one plane, that’s an Ombré – and they’re easier than ever to create thanks to computerized graphic design and printing. What used to be an incredibly difficult effect to achieve can now be done quickly and easily. An Ombré photo booth backdrop could easily incorporate the main colors from your wedding, while creating an extremely classy effect for the resulting pictures – much like a professional posed photo.
- Step and Repeat Patterns
For something a little more visually interesting than plain colors, but without being too much, a step and repeat pattern backdrop could be the perfect choice. Step and repeats are simple patterns, such as geometric figures, that are repeated over and over. These are good when you want to make sure the subjects of the photos really stand out from the backdrop, with a distinct background behind them.
Another good choice for adding just a little visual interest to backdrops is a framing or border effect. The border creates a nice space for the photo subjects to be in, without distracting or being too gaudy. When paired with a flat color or Ombré, it’s classical, distinctive, and yet still subtle enough to be tasteful and unobtrusive – perfect for a wedding that’s trying to keep things simple.

October 26th, – Having a wedding photo booth in Toronto is all the rage, and it’s easy to see why. People love taking pictures, they love opportunities to express themselves, and they love getting a final product they can share with all their friends. They’re also excellent entertainment for people of all ages, and that can be important at weddings where there are going to be kids around. Photo booths are something they can have fun with, without adults constantly shooing them away.
Now, of course, no one buys a wedding photo booth – there’s no point when they’re easily rented for an afternoon or evening. And there are plenty of options in rentals. So why should you rent a wedding photo booth from Best Wedding Backdrops?
Why Best Wedding Backdrops Should Be Your Source for A Wedding Photo Booth in Toronto
- A clean, modern look.
Our photo booths are new, slick, and modernized. A lot of other places are renting out photo booths that, well, they’ve been around a bit. Like since the 90s. They can tend to stick out like a sore thumb, and you definitely don’t want that at your wedding. Our booths are minimalist enough not to detract from your overall décor and can fit in almost anywhere.
- High tech options.
Since our photo booths are state-of-the-art, that also means we can incorporate features many other photo booths lack. For example, ours can instantly publish to social media so that you don’t even have to take the time to import the pictures into your social feed. Or, you could get an upgrade which adds animated GIF support – just the thing for making wedding pictures with a lot more visual appeal.
- Professional staffing.
One of the most common questions we hear is, “Do we have to operate the photo booth ourselves?” The answer is ‘no!’ We always provide clean and professional staff to help operate the booth and – if necessary – ensure proper usage by any guests who are over-enthusiastic. (Or over-served.) They will always treat your guests politely and ensure a great time is had by all.
They’ll also handle the setup and tear-down as well, so you don’t have to stress about that part.
- Extensive personalization options.
One thing you can’t get from most other options for renting a wedding photo booth in Toronto is our range of personalized props, signs, cutouts, and backdrops. We have printing services on site that can print just about anything you like, including extensive custom background work. Your photo booth can produce pictures which are truly yours and could only have come from your wedding!

Wedding photobooths are huge right now, and it’s little wonder why. People love taking pictures – and mostly of themselves. At a wedding, it can be downright distracting (or even dangerous) to have half the guests running around with selfie sticks, so wedding photobooths give them a great alternative.
Plus, photobooths are a lot of fun, and open loads of opportunities for creativity. They also give the wedding planners a bit more say in how and where pictures are taken, which is helpful for planning the event as a whole.
If you’re going to include a photobooth, anything you can do to spice it up will make it even more popular with your guests. So, we wanted to share some of our favorite wedding photobooth ideas for making them a hit attraction at your reception!
Five Awesome Wedding Photobooth Ideas to Consider
- Themed Props
When you get a rented photobooth, you can almost always get selections of props to accompany the booth and make it more fun. Try to select props which go with the theme of your wedding. Besides fitting in better with the décor, it’ll help ensure all the photos produced of your wedding are all on-theme as well. That can help a lot when assembling collections of photos for social media or scrapbooks.
- Add Class with A Red Carpet
Red carpets are one of the oldest signs of royalty, celebrity, and class. Use of red carpets for VIPs literally goes back over 2,500 years to the ancient Greeks! You could carry on this tradition and make your photobooth something special by adding your own red carpet and accompanying stanchions leading up to the booth. It’ll also make it an unmissable part of your overall wedding layout.
- Sharing Stations
Rented photobooths allow guests unlimited access to their pictures after the event from an online album, but what if they want to share them immediately? A sharing station makes this possible, taking the pictures directly from the photobooth and allowing guests to instantly send them to most popular social media sites like Facebook or Instagram. It’s fun, it’s fast, and it helps make your wedding a success both online and offline!
- Animated GIF Upgrades
Normal photobooths only take single-frame static photos, but by upgrading to a booth that supports animated GIFs, you could take your wedding snaps to a whole new level. It adds an entirely new level of fun along with loads of creative options. Your guests will love it – particularly if the booth happens to be near the bar.
- Custom Backdrops
You get a plain white backdrop with a rented photobooth, but why stop there? With Best Wedding Backdrops at your side, anything you imagine could be turned into a backdrop! We’d love to work with you to make highly-creative photobooth pics happen.
