So you're doing a DIY photobooth, and you're thinking to yourself, "Self, I might need some props." And your self replies, "Maybe, but you don't need wooden mustaches. No, what you really need are some NERDY props." Then you and yourself high five and are like OMG YES TOTALLY, and then you start brainstorming.
Here are a few of my suggestions, all from ThinkGeek…
As always with these kinds of things, click the pictures to learn more!

8-bit hair ribbon! OMG ADORBZ.
Ok, ok. I must control myself. Evidently, I'm in an uber ThinkGeeky mood. I mean, CUPCAKE LIP BALM!? Stuffed sushi? HTTPanties? Caffeine Molecule Necklace!?
Omgpwnies Red Ladies Computer Bag!? None of this has anything to do with weddings, but are you kidding me?!
