Got extra invites? Then you've got an awesome photo backdrop

By on Apr. 26th

Offbeat Bride reader Stina had a ton of leftover invitations and inserts due to a printing snafu. Inspired by her father's suggestion of using them as decor, Stina had a flash of brilliance when she turned them into the backdrop of their photo booth.

Here's how she made this backdrop in four steps:

  • a one-hole punch
  • string
  • some nails
  • and blocks of wood, to which she attached the bottom of the invitation strings, to weigh them down (as it was an outside photo booth)

BOOM! Instant backdrop.

We just ended up using the camera and remote, without any software or ability to print out on site, which meant for much faster photos. We had about 150 photos when all was said and done, and I think they all are wonderful. We threw in a few props, and everyone had a blast with it!
