Using Instax Cameras and Film for Your Wedding

Last month, I had the pleasure of working with Instax in their booth at the Toasted Wedding Event in Brooklyn! In case you’re not familiar, Instax has created a really cool collection of instant film cameras that come in a variety of fun colors and styles and I totally love them for all sorts of wedding-related projects!

Use Instax for your photo booth

For the wedding event, I created these fun and simple photo booth props for the attendees to use in our photo booth! Everyone who stopped by the Instax booth got to take a photo in our photo booth using the props I’d made to enter for the chance to win an Instax camera bundle. The props were a big hit and all the brides and grooms and their friends enjoyed striking a pose and acting silly.

Display your Instax Photos at Your Wedding

Once you’ve taken lots of cute pictures in the photo booth you can have your guests hang their pictures up to display throughout the reception! We encouraged everyone to take at least two photos… one for the couple and one to keep for themselves! Does this make for a fun display? The Instax team picked up these darling rustic style photo frames with twine in the middle… you can then just pin the instant photos to the twine with mini clothespins for an adorable and interactive display!

Use Instax Photos as Wedding Decor

As you can see, the Instax team also used the Instant film photos as decor by applying them to a rustic burlap banner. Such a cute and creative way to display the photos!

Create Table Numbers with Instax

In the far right of the photo above, you can also see the cute table numbers I created using Instax instant film. I created these wooden table number holders and placed some instant film photos in them. You and your fiancé could have a mini Instax photo shoot — just take photos together of you holding a chalkboard with different numbers on it and use those photos to identify your table numbers for your guests.

Use Instax for Your Guest Book

If you don’t want to display your photo booth photos in frames but you do want to keep them, you could ask your guests to paste their Instax Photos into a scrapbook to use as a guestbook! All you’ll need is a glue stick or tape runner to stick the photos into a blank scrapbook — plus cute pens or markers for your guests to leave their well-wishes!

There’s just something so fun and nostalgic about these cameras and the instant film– they are super fun to use! I love the vintage / retro style of the cameras and the instant film just reminds me of simpler times when we didn’t get the actual instant gratification of a digital camera.

Using Instax Cameras at Your Wedding

Instax cameras and film make great gifts for weddings, your bridesmaids, you name it! How fun would it be to document your honeymoon with these awesome cameras? It could make for a really cute addition to scrapbooking, or even just displaying around your home. One feature of Instax’s newest camera: the Instax Mini 70 is that it has a handy little mirror on the front of the camera so you can properly line it up to take great selfies. Pretty cool, right?
