If you are getting married and you, like me, love books then this post is for you. Although I won’t be wearing a wedding dress made from the pages of my favourite books, I think there are some lovely subtle ways to have a bookish theme on your big day. Here are some ideas:
This Alice in Wonderland confetti might be a bit quirky for some weddings but why not use a romance novel instead? It’s a fantastic DIY project and so much more interesting than standard confetti.
Literary Bridesmaid Gifts
One of my bridesmaids is mad about cats and this is a cute gift which she would absolutely love.
Literary Table Names
I absolutely love how the author name has been combined with a quote to create a cute table name.
The Book Arch
If you and your future husband or wife are both mad about books then why not? Who needs flowers anyway?
What a perfect gift for ushers, a best man or even a husband-to-be on the day of the wedding. There are plenty of options on Etsy so you are sure to find a pair to suit.
Library Card Wedding Guest Book
This is such a unique idea. It’s a handmade item on Etsy so it is a bit of a splurge. On the other hand, it could made a great DIY wedding project!
A Bookish Wedding Cake
Why not talk to your cake maker about making you a bookish cake? I love the second one in the picture above, it would be lovely to have romantic verses on it.
Library Card Catalogue
Such a lovely idea unfortunately I’m unsure where it is sold however I’m sure that it could be replicated by a crafty bride or groom to be!
The Save the Date Bookmark
A save the date card that doubles up as a bookmark. What a lovely idea!
The Book Ring-Holder
Yes, this is Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince! Why have a wedding pillow when you could have your favourite book?
Flowers Made of Book Pages
Feeling crafty? Then why not get your bridesmaids together and create these quirky bookish wedding flowers.
That’s it for now folks. Do you have any other ideas for a bookish wedding?
Happy wedding planning!
