Photo Booth Alternatives

Photo Booth Alternatives

While photo booths are a great option to add something different or unique to your wedding, they can also be rather pricey. If you have the means within your budget, go for it. However, if your looking for something similar but your expenses are starting to balloon, consider another idea; an old school option with a new school twist…Polaroids.

There are many options in this area for both the type of camera and the method to deliver this option to your guests:


#1. Go straight for the vintage and get an actual Polaroid camera. These cameras can be had on craigslit. ebay, amazon, or most likely from a family member.

#2. Many contemporary companies have tapped into this market and introduced their own version of Polaroid cameras. The look of many of them may be just what your looking for at your wedding. We prefer the Instax 90 for the look and the quality it produces.


#1. Have a table station- Use a table, leave the camera, maybe even props and let people take their own pics and hang them from the close pins seen in the pic below or even place them in an album.

#2. Utilize your photographer- Ask your photographer, especially if there is more than one of them, to walk around and snap some candid shots for an album you may have ready for the pictures to be entered directly into.

#3. Utilize your DJ- Same as above. Two people DJ teams does mean that at some point, one of them will have a little down time. Your not looking for professional shots, so the DJ may work just fine.


Albums- There are variety of albums out there also designed specifically for the type of camera you may purchase or have.

Good luck with wedding planning. As always, think outside conventional wisdom when planning. You’ll appreciate the personal touches.
