Offering your guests a fun, personalized party favor in the form of a booth that snaps black and white pictures of guests wearing silly hats, boas and mustaches seems like a must have at any wedding reception, until of course you see the price tag. But since the trend does not seem to be fading out any time soon â€“ and neither does the price â€“ budget savvy couples are providing their guests with the same experience without cutting their guest list to pay for it.

There are several ways to set up a photo â€œbooth,â€ or station, without renting the actual booth, and you will save about $2000 on average by doing it yourself. Your reception theme and personal style as a couple will help you create a unique favor that’s easy to do, guests will love, and it will cost you next to nothing to pull off. Most important to its success is designating an area at your reception with enough room for your guests to utilize the photo station, providing clear signage to explain to guests that they are creating their own personalized party favor.
