Prompting guests to roast you Mystery Science Theater 3K-style is a perfect way to snag laughs. I recommend grabbing a camera and making sure to catch it on video, too.

These photo booth props can help shelter dogs after your wedding

I found those plushies that would be super cute for photo booth props. But they’re also dog toys! And then I realized… I could purchase a ton of fun-shaped dog toys, perfect for photo booth posing, and then donate them to a dog shelter afterwards!
