HOW TO: A HOMEMADE WEDDING PHOTOBOOTH

homemade photobooth
Photobooths at weddings are really fun, so it was a no-brainer decision that we wanted one for ours. The trend is just appearing in certain parts of Germany, unlike in the UK and US, where it is already outrageously popular. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to make my own 'photo-corner', with decorations and props and not just to save money. I want to keep it for future parties and celebrations. Posing in funny glasses, to me, will never get old. So how do you put together a homemade wedding photobooth? This is a step-by-step break-down of how we did it....or course, with a little help from some friends.

MY ZURICH MAKE-UP BAG

 Now that my German lessons are on a break, I finally have chance to enjoy a little break away. One bonus of living in Germany is that we are so close to many other countries. As you are reading this, I am in Zurich (obviously!), but I thought I would share with you what make-up I took with me. I am also going to try and vlog for the first time ever, so you will actually (hopefully) get to see what is on my face during this time. If it sucks nuts, I won't be showing it though! (Not my face...the vlog!)

WEDDING CRAFT ROUND-UP: TISSUE PAPER POM-POM TUTORIAL AND OTHER WAYS TO MAKE YOUR PARTY CEILING PRETTY.

Pom-Pom Wedding
The pom-pom wedding trend is nothing new...if anything it is a little 2012; but since I first saw our venue (a very plain concert hall), I knew they would be a perfect solution to make the hall seem more festive and fun. It is easier than ever to pop into a craft store and buy the fluffy wonders, flat-packed in threes and in different colours, if you are willing to spend at least £5 (or in Germany nearly 8 Euros)for the privilege. They are also available on ebay and actually for some reasonable prices if you aren't a crafter, or have no time before your wedding to fit in a few evenings of paper folding. But the best option for anyone who has basic folding and cutting skills, and a week of free evenings is to make your own. I made over 35 pom-poms for less than 10 Euro, and still have packs of tissue paper left over for future crafting. If you want to skip ahead for alternative ceiling ideas.....scroll down to after the tutorial! So here's how you make them:
