Something old, something new, something borrowed[1], something blue...and something extra? You bet! Props are the perfect way to let your personalities shine through and jazz up your wedding pictures. If you're not sure where to start, we've found 10 fun photo props from Etsy you'll love.

Oversized Balloon

Go big or go home! We love this huge champagne balloon; after you're done using it for any pre-wedding portraits, try putting it by the bar. It's especially good for New Year's Eve weddings, in our opinion. Plus, any size balloon will add some height and fun to a normal portrait, notes Francesca DiSalvo-Follmer of Pure Luxe Bride[2]. "You can play around with pattern, pops of color or even metallics for this extra detail," she says.

This one's a no-brainer! If you're going to have a photo booth, ya GOTS to have some fun props for your (most likely inebriated) guests to play with.

Confetti & Flower Petals

We love a good confetti popper, which makes more of an impactful spray of confetti than just throwing it out of a bag. Have a couple members of your wedding party pop them into your photos (while they're off camera) during portraits or while your photographer is capturing a particularly good late-night dance-circle pop a couple!

Felt Boards

Ditch the white board or chalk board in your photos or photo booth. Felt boards are cute and add an extra layer of class (plus, no one will have to know how horrible your penmanship is).

Backdrops

Backdrops aren't just for the altar; there are so many fun options out there, like the custom-made backdrop above. Or get some beautiful wall paper and a large piece of plywood and create something that can be used both in the ceremony and the reception!
