One of the coolest Halloween parties I've ever been to was one that my friend, Jeremy, threw for the Ghetto Gourmet. What made it so fun was that it featured a Photoboof, where guests could go in and take wacky photos and the images were immediately projected on a huge wall while at the same time a keepsake strip was produced, like you would get at an old timey arcade. Renting a Photoboof is really expensive ($1,000+) but you can definitely create your own photo area using a homemade backdrop, a tripod/digital camera, and lighting.
You probably can't nail/tack anything at your wedding venue, but what you can do is rent professional photographer's C-stand ($4-5 day at Calumet) and muslin ($25). Set up a couple c-stands to create your "wall" for the backdrop. You can also custom make a backdrop using muslin and painting it yourself. Position your tripod and camera with a few props and voila! You've made yourself a photo studio, like the kind you had at prom.
