Showcase your appreciation for Jane Austen or Shakespeare by adding details for book lovers to your big day. If your wedding is coming up soon, we’ll show you how to create the perfect book-themed wedding this summer easily.
Book-Themed Wedding Ideas
You don’t have to look far for book quotes about love. Do you have a favorite? Try adding them to the wedding by including them in the programs or the invitations. It’s a beautiful way to add meaning to your special day. You can also include quotes about summertime, which goes with the season.
Stack the tables with literature
Use books as part of your decoration plan! You can find some classics or old favorites at thrift stores or in your own home. Then place them on the gift or dinner tables.
Did you know your wedding invitation sets the tone for the whole event? To keep consistent with the literary theme, send book-inspired wedding invites. Some look like covers of books, others resemble a library card, and there are many more ideas.
Book Pages as Flowers
You can create beautiful bouquets for the bridal party using paper flowers. These papers can be pages from books turned into works of art. In the summertime, flowers might wilt from the heat; paper flowers are a perfect solution.
Gift your guests with a book as a way of saying thank you for being part of your special day! It may work better for small weddings, but you can find many books for cheap these days, even if you order a lot of them. It’s even better if you match the reader to the book, based on what you think they’d like.
Creating a wedding cake that resembles a book, or a stack of books, is a unique detail that will impress your family and friends. It shows personality and adds flair to dessert time.
Tell Your Story
Use your wedding programs to tell a short and sweet version of how you and your fiance met. People love hearing the details, and it’s a great way to personalize the day. You might also create program covers that look like books you love.
If you and your fiance enjoy a particular novel or story, why not make your honeymoon part of it? If J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books inspire you, you might choose England as your destination. Or perhaps you’ve read Lord of the Rings ten times. New Zealand might appeal to you for your vacation. Find a place to visit that embodies the spirit of the stories you love.
There are many ways to bring your book-themed wedding to life, using these ideas and any others you can come up with! From centerpieces to cake and invitations, your wedding guests are sure to appreciate all the detail you’ve put into this day.
