  • Floral Crowns or Bouquet Props: Whimsical floral crowns or oversized paper flower bouquet props tie in beautifully with an outdoor wedding ceremony vibe and give guests something to do before the ceremony starts.

For the wedding reception:

  • Decorate With Reception Table Props: Liven up the reception tables with themed props like personalized centerpieces, confetti poppers, or fun sunglasses for each place setting that guests can take with them to the photo booth.
  • Use Props For Your Photo Booth Backdrop: Create an eye-catching backdrop for the photo booth area with a custom neon sign, floral wall, or boxwood wall installation.
  • Provide Dancing Props: Encourage guests to hit the dance floor with glow sticks, fun masks, or novelty sunglasses that can double as fun props in your photo booth!
