How to Choose the Right Backdrop For Your Event.

The backdrop of a photo booth should never be underestimated because backdrops can change how your photos turn out. Likewise, backdrops play an essential piece in being the decorative element of your photo booth animation. With a selection of over 20+ backdrops, the choices are endless, which can make your decision-making process challenging. No worries, we are here to provide you with some helpful tips for choosing your backdrop. If you're ready to give your guests that unforgettable experience at your event, here are some photo booth backdrop ideas to get you started.

Coordinating with a theme

If you don’t know where to start, the first thing you can consider is coordinating with the theme of your event. For events that have a particular theme, choosing a backdrop that consists of similar color patterns and images can tie in your entire event together.

Here are some important factors to consider.

  • The colors of your event

  • The colors of the venue

  • If you would like to have images in the background

  • If you would like to have any words displayed in the background

  • your guests and their style.

  • The event style

  • Business opportunities (for corporate events)

Keep it simple

When in doubt, keeping it simple can be an easy alternative. It sounds boring, but many people prefer a plain backdrop for many reasons. For example, utilizing a plain white backdrop can act as a blank slate for your guests to dress up their photos on their own. Also, plain colors can provide an elegant look. Keeping it clean and crisp might be the easiest way to be worry-free about color clashing with clothing or even with props.

Most importantly, simple doesn’t have to be too plain. Simple sequin curtains provide that same aesthetic but give the backdrop some pizazz. The best part of sequin curtains is that they are amazing for any type of event. Here are some of our examples.

Another great choice for a fun but not too simple look is our patterned backdrops!
