The primary benefit of props includes adding a central focus and providing a unique visual presentation to all of your pictures. Whether you use big props or small props, the purpose is to capture unforgettable moments. Read on for ideas for fun wedding props.

Big Lips and Moustaches

Grins and laughs are never in short supply during wedding day festivities add to the fun by taking photographs of guests holding big lips and moustaches on-a-stick. These types of props are simple-to-make and sure to bring big smiles.

Cute Signs

Have fun with cute wedding messages printed on signs. Fun phrases include ‘Here comes the bride.’, ‘Happily ever after.’ and ‘All you need is love.’ Create your own unique personal messages. These are another easy to make wedding day photo prop.

Another option is to use chalkboards for your signs. Chalkboards bring a handwritten old-school feel to your pictures and the black on white contrast usually photographs quite well.

Hats and Bow Ties

Playing dress-up is fun for all ages, at your wedding get interactive with decorative hats. Offer a variety of hats for guests and wedding party members to wear for photographs. Include different styles such as cowboy hats, top hats, sailor hats, sombreros, bowlers and tiaras. For more humor, offer coordinating feather boas or bow ties in an assortment of shapes and colors for quick pizazz.


It is not unusual to see masks during Halloween or Mardi Gras weddings. Yet, they can be fun for all types of weddings. When selecting masks, it might be easier to use a half-mask instead of a full-face cover mask, so as not to cover-up a smile. Masks may be adorned with feathers and jewels or created from simple cutouts. Choose the ones you like the best for photographs.


There is something romantic about umbrellas and weddings. Umbrellas are fun to hold and can add a pop of color to your wedding day photographs. For an ultra-feminine touch, use white or pink parasols decorated with lace, rhinestones and satin bows.


Bring out the child in everyone with airy-light balloon props for your wedding day photos. Grasp a large bouquet of small balloons in your wedding colors or go simple and choose two very large round balloons for your wedding photos. Attach curled streamers for a festive effect.

On the Beach

The beach offers plenty of fun-on-the-water prop ideas for your wedding photographs. Imaginative props include colorful beach balls, large sunglasses, sand pails and shovels, pretty sea shells, Hawaiian leis and surfboards.
