5 Unique DIY Wedding Photo Booth Ideas Besides Floral Walls
Photo booth backdrops that beautify your wedding
Brides- and grooms-to-be, it’s no secret that in today’s digital day and age, photo booths are one of the main highlights at weddings. It’s a great way for everyone to have fun and capture memories – while looking good thanks to professional setups and fancy outfits – but that doesn’t mean that you can’t wow your guests with a homemade photo booth backdrop of your own.
The typical floral wall aside, read on for some DIY photo booth ideas that are just as gorgeous but uniquely eye-catching!
1. Iridescent Fringe Curtains
There’s a reason why the world’s been so taken by all things iridescent. The shimmers from the light reflections give off a lovely combination of sparkling pink, purple, white, and gold, which instantly makes almost everything look magical.

Easily available online, the tassel fringe effect also adds a playful and fun touch to the photos! To take it a step further, you can purchase iridescent photo props online or simply get your hands on some iridescent gift wrap to give your existing props a homemade glo-up.
2. Globe Displays

For adventurous couples who love to travel, spread the wanderlust by using globes of various sizes as a photo backdrop! Not only will they make for a whimsical, one-of-a-kind photo, but they also add an interactive touch to the entire backdrop.
3. Floral Wall Monogram
If flowers are still your favourite, a floral wall monogram is a great way to make use of these gorgeous blooms in an unconventional way. All you have to do is to purchase some flower garlands – fresh or fake, you take your pick – and arrange them accordingly into your initials. Scotch tape, thumbtacks, Blu Tack, or removable, self-adhesive hooks are some of the tools you can use to secure the garlands to the wall.

Crepe paper might sound like something you’d only use for school art projects, but string them up and they’ll make for a delightfully playful yet elegant backdrop! A creative way to add a splash of colour to your wedding venue, don’t worry if you can’t seem to find the shades that match your wedding colour scheme – you can dip-dye crepe paper in just a few simple steps to get stunning ombré hues!
5. Life-Sized 3D Set
Rachel Wee and Ken Chen’s underwater-themed wedding had a life-sized “fish tank” as their photo booth!
What better way to showcase your larger-than-life personalities than with a large, life-sized 3D backdrop? Quirky, interactive, and definitely not cookie-cutter at all, this is especially perfect for those who love to get their hands messy with arts and craft. Alternatively, you can print out a trick-eye photo backdrop if you don’t have the time for such an elaborate plan!
The possibility is limitless
With some creativity and perhaps a friend who has a knack for handling crafts, there really is no limit to the kind of photo booth backdrop that you can create. Crepe paper not necessarily has to be hung as streamers; you can fold them into various origami shapes to create a 3D-effect wall! Of course, for those of you who don’t have the luxury of time, these ideas are some of the simpler, fuss-free ones.
Alternatively, some photo booth rentals may offer customisable services, so all you need to do is to give them a call to find out. Hope you’re inspired!
