    Amity, I'm going to try to write up a more in-depth tutorial but I'll give you a summary in case you want to try and do one for your wedding. (I highly recommend doing one if you have the time!)

    Photo Booth Software
    We used software for Windows from http://sparkbooth.com/ for $59. There is software available for Mac OS from http://davidcline.wordpress.com/ for a small donation.

    Computer
    We used a year-old HP laptop that my sister wasn't using anymore.

    Photo Printer
    We went with an Epson Picturemate Snap, a portable photo printer.

    Photo Paper
    We used glossy HP Everyday photo paper.

    Webcam
    We bought a Logitech C525 webcam, which has higher resolution than basic webcams. It also folds up and has its own carrying case.

    Props
    We bought everything from discount stores like Goodwill, Dollar Tree, and Savers. I bought beads, masks, leis, feather boas, and hats. I was going to make mustaches/lips on sticks and chalkboards but ran out of time.

    Background
    I ended up not using one because we had a divider on one side of our room that was neutral enough to be used as a background. Originally, we had planned to hang a sheet or shower curtain on a clothes rack.

    Setup
    We just placed the laptop and printer on a long table and placed two chairs in front of it. I liked that it wasn't an actual booth because you could get more people in the photos.

    Attendant
    My sister's friend ran the photo booth for us all night. She is super friendly and outgoing and really made the photo booth a hit. She also adjusted the camera for each group to make sure everyone was able to fit in the frame.

    Problems
    We set up the software so that each group could choose how many photos could be printed (with a max of 5). This ended up creating a backlog of photos to be printed. Our attendant started placing groups of photos at one end of the table when they were finished printing for people to pick up. Not a huge problem, but I wish I could have set up an automatic print queue to have the photos sent to 2 different printers.

    After the wedding, I uploaded all of the photos to our Shutterfly share site so our guests can download or order prints as they please.
