Ideas for a bookish wedding

Bookish literary wedding ideas

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:

Book Confetti

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?

Literary Cufflinks

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.

Yes, this is Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince! Why have a wedding pillow when you could have your favourite book?
