Everyone looks forward to their wedding, and more so to their wedding photographs. What other event can give you a lifetime of memories and Instagram material? For these pictures to turn out looking whimsical and creative, you can make some extra efforts. Here are five trendy props that you can use to make your wedding more fun!
Chalkboards scribbled with messages first appeared a couple of years ago as photography props. Earlier, they were used for more casual events like birthdays or baby showers. Now, they can make a cutesy, trendy addition to your wedding pictures.
Ask your photographer if they have these chalkboards available, or get some made on order! They look super sweet when the bride and groom are holding them together; sigh!
Sparklers and Candles
Lights add that extra touch of magic to photographs. To give your pictures the ethereal touch, go for sparklers or candles as props. You and your beau can hold the sparklers or they can be held by your guests all around you. Get creative!
The candles can be paired with rose petals and placed down the aisle. As the bride walks down it, she will feel majestic as a queen! Just make sure to stay safe from the flames.
Life-Sized Photo Frames
The happy couple can be photographed holding life-sized photo frames to give off a quirky impression. Get a gilded-looking vintage frame or one with a social media app layout with you in the middle. You can choose to do it any way you like.
One of the newer, more inventive props are pieces made of origami. They are highly affordable and they look so fancy! You don’t even need to hire a professional for this; get your cousins together and do some DIY. Choose from cranes, butterflies, turtles, and any other animal or shape that strikes your fancy.
If you’re a lover of bright colors like us, you would enjoy the idea of smoke bombs. Available in several bright colors, smoke bombs can definitely make your wedding look whimsical and eccentric, in a good way! The best part is that these colors come off looking as fantastic in reel life as they are in real.
Match the smoke bomb color with your flower hue, or with your bridesmaids’ dresses, or just get your favorite color. The choice is entirely yours.
