But I want guests to be entertained by something other than just conversation with tablemates.
I love the photobooth idea, but renting a real one is out of our budget and I'm not even sure it will fit in the room. So I'm now seriously considering a faux photobooth/instant photo guestbook.
With a "faux-tobooth" (fxbooth), a photographer takes photos of your guests in a specific area, or guests can take pictures of themselves, sometimes with an interesting fabric backdrop and/or fun props.

Cute, huh? Our fxbooth will be very DIY, as in guests will take pictures of themselves with an instant camera. We're also thinking about having wish cards for people to fill out, and then after the wedding we can put people's photos and wish cards together in an album.
Does anyone have tips for creating a successful DIY fxbooth?
