One of the best ways to spice up any photo strip is to grab some photo booth props! Equipped with a mask or wig in hand, even the most reluctant picture-taker suddenly knows how to work the camera like a supermodel!
Whether you’re throwing a birthday bash, celebrating a wedding, or partying with co-workers, the perfect photo booth props are out there…and we are here to help you find them.
We’ve been in the photo booth biz for 10 years now (!!), so we have seen the gamut of what’s out there. Here are some of our top picks for 2017:
1. Props on a Stick
The hottest thing right now just might be props on a stick. (Think mustaches, beards, glasses, etc.) There are tons of shops on Etsy offering TONS of options! One of our favorites is Event by Eunice. Most of Eunice’s props on a stick are a plastic/clay material, which means they’ll be able to withstand ALL of the fun being had in the photo booth! (People tend to get pretttty excited whenever photo booth props are involved, especially after a couple glasses of ROSÉ…trust us.) Our favorite package she offers is this 26-piece package, with a variety of lips, mustaches, and glasses. SO MUCH FUN!
Another great Etsy shop we love is Manic Moose. We love their Great Gatsby and Love Photo Booth Prop Set for weddings. The shop has tons of other options, including a Cowboy & Cowgirl set, a Cinco de Mayo set, and so many more!
2. Word Signs
Some fun word sign photo booth props thrown into the mix can make for some really funny pictures. You’d be amazed at the imagery people can create from a few simple words! The proptrunk.com makes tons of funny word signs packs. The best part is they’re made from durable lightweight plastic, so they won’t be ruined when drunkle Bill spills his cocktail on them later in the night!
3. Chalkboard Speech Bubble
If you’d rather let your guests express their own words, you can try out one of these chalkboard speech bubbles. Check out this great little tutorial on how to make your own chalkboard photo booth prop.
4. Majestic Photo Booth Props
If none of these options tickle your fancy, we here at The Majestic Photobooth Co. offer our own standard props package as an add-on to your photobooth rental. What you’ll find in our props package is a variety of glasses, hats, wigs, necklaces, and more!
So, whatever photo booth props you chose to bring into the booth, the idea is to let loose, have a little fun, and create some memories that will last a lifetime!
