20 Creative Ideas for a Book-Inspired Wedding



As the popular song goes, "Love moves in mysterious ways." Indeed, there is no telling when and where love will come to you. Sometimes, love finds you in unfamiliar places. You meet someone, get to know that person and eventually realize that he is the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. Other times, you find someone that shares your passion and interest like literature and books. And you realize that you just click.

You can celebrate your love for books by making it the central theme of your wedding. Here are 20 creative ways on how you can put together a book-inspired wedding:

Send out an invitation inspired by the lay-out of a book.

Instead of fresh flowers, go for paper flower bouquet as a homage for written materials.

Add a quirky boutonniere to the groom's suit and tie.

Let your favorite books stand witness to your profession of love for one another by transforming bookshelves into an arch for the wedding ceremony.

Alternatively, you can say your vows under a wedding arch made of stacked books.

For an added perspective, decorate the aisle with scattered loose petals and candle lanterns perched on books

Gorgeous backdrop for a wedding ceremony or reception made out of old books framed by vines and flowers.

Floral arrangement on a card catalog stacked on books and surrounded with candles.
Shabby chic centerpiece of large blooms on clear bottles arranged in varying heights with the help of books.  

Dress up books and use them as table number displays

Create centerpieces out of books with the same color as your motif


Print your welcome signage on a reprint of your favorite reading material.


Have guests sign their names on this creative artwork of stacked books.


Order an awesome wedding cake decorated with excerpts from your favorite literary piece.


You can opt for a standout cake like this 5-tier cake shaped and designed to look like a stack of books.

Decorate cupcakes with the perfect topping - miniature books inscribed with the titles of your favorites.

Distribute cones with paper confetti which guests can shower you with as you walk down the aisle after the ceremony or during your arrival at the wedding reception.

Give away pre-loved books as wedding favors.

Ask guests to scribble their messages on cards filed  on a card catalog.


Have your picture taken with book as props.

Lots of Love,
Susan
