Photo booths are pretty standard at weddings nowadays. And while they provide lots of entertainment for guests, photo booths can get pricey - especially if you rent one.

We put together a photo booth for about half the cost of a rental using items from Amazon. Keep scrolling to see how we did it and shop all of the materials we used.

We recommend using a freestanding backdrop stand. With a stand, you aren't limited by your surroundings. You can set up your photo booth anywhere without relying on a wall to support the backdrop.

This one was super easy to set up, and it even comes with clips to hold a backdrop and sandbags to keep the poles in place.

WHAT WE USED: Backdrop stand kit, $39.90

Keep it simple with a tonal or solid-color backdrop. We used this festive gold fringe one, but you can also tape crepe paper streamers in complimentary colors to the stand's cross bar for an ombre effect.

WHAT WE USED:
Gold fringe curtain, $15.99 for three

Obviously, props are essential. You could buy some for pretty cheap on Amazon, or just scrounge around your house for old Halloween costume accessories.

WHAT WE USED:
Gold crown, $5.99
Feather boa, $9.85
Black and gold paper props, $3.29
Cowboy hat, $4.04

There's no need to spend money on an extra photographer or photo booth rental when there are tons of affordable tripod options. We like this one because guests can use their own phones to take photos.

Don't want to purchase a tripod? Guests will be more than willing to snap eachother's photos while waiting for their turn in the photo booth.

WHAT WE USED:
Digiant smartphone tripod, $13.79

$128.92

If you're willing to shell out a bit more, buy an instant camera. This may be a worthwhile purchase if you plan to personally use the camera after the wedding. Otherwise, consider it an optional addition.

To reconcile the cost of purchasing a camera, use the photo booth as both an activity and a guestbook. We love the idea of using a mini photo album as a guestbook where family and friends can leave a note alongside their photo.

WHAT WE USED:
Mini photo album, $11.99
Instax Mini 9 with 120 film pack, $128.92

Ta-da!
