Book Themed Wedding

Book I Do

No, I’m not getting married. You all would have heard about it by now if that were the case.

Today’s post is still book/writing related, but with a twist. And it’s going to be QUITE girly. If you’re uncomfortable with that…

Run Away

As most of you may know, if you’ve followed my blog for a while, I’m a bit obsessed with Pinterest. I was hooked from day one, Christmas day two and a half years ago. Since that time, I’ve had to give up Pinterest for Lent, simply because I spent far too much time on the site. There is just so much to see there that gives me endless ideas for fashion, decor, parties, events, writing, reading, cooking, art… I could go on.

I’ve since curtailed my use of Pinterest, but it has an amazing cache of themed wedding posts. Now, I usually don’t post many wedding pins because I’m nowhere near marriage at this point, but I keep thinking how cool it would be, as a writer, to have a book-themed wedding!

And, lo-and-behold, Pinterest had a million ideas for bringing that about. I just thought I’d share a few and see what you think.

Book Invitations

Look at those invitations! It’s just like the pages of an antique book, and an old library card. Perfection! And unique. So different from “typical” wedding invitations.

Book Typewriter Guestbook

Such a cool idea! There are cards for each person to type out their words of wisdom and it works as a guest book, too! I love old typewriters. I want to buy one, but then I’d have to have the stuff to keep it in working order… and I just don’t. But I love this idea!

Book Bouquet

So pretty! For those who think this is sacrilege because it uses book pages, look away! But I still think it’s a cool idea. There were a million options on Pinterest, but this one was simply elegant. Love it! Man, this is such a girly post. But I won’t apologize for it. I’m reveling! Next!

Book Centerpiece

Simple, but classy. Faboo.

Book Favors

And what better favors to give away at a wedding, but BOOKS! Cleverly wrapped second hand books (unless you’re rich and can afford new). A great way to encourage reading! And they’re pretty!

Book Cake 3

And of course, we can’t forget the cake. I like this, but the colors are a little much for me. I’m more of a fan of simple, classic colors, so I’d personally switch this up, but it’s a pretty ‘sweet’ idea, isn’t it? 🙂

Book Ceremony Program

Programs from vintage books, or at least, that LOOK like vintage books. I’m not going to deny how awesome this is. Pure. Awesome.

Book Thank You

And last, but not least, a departing shot of the couple, with a few words for their adoring guests after such a fabulous and unique ceremony and reception.

There was SO much more I could have posted, but some of these are my favorite. What do you all think? I’m a little in love with the whole idea, and I’m such a planner that I could pull this off and it’d look amazing. I have a slight control problem.

Yep. It’s decided. Whoever my groom may be in the future, we’re having a book themed wedding. No questions asked.

Poor guy.

Happy writing! (And dreaming).

  1. I love it! I wish I’d seen this idea three years ago! I think my favorite of those ideas is the invitation–though the cake takes a close second.

    • My favorites are the invitation and the typewriter guest book. But there was SO much to choose from on Pinterest, it’s a wonder I didn’t include more pics. Oh well. A girl can dream, right? 😉

  2. Yes! Yes! and more YES! I’m so there with you! And here I thought a Tiffany’s themed wedding was the tops. I totally love this idea. Especially the typewriter. What a great idea. And to top it off, you used to marvelous quotes. I say, if you find a guy that loves you, he will let you have this book themed wedding. I mean, he loves you and wants you happy. Right? So who cares if it’s all books. I love it. I can’t see how I never thought of this before. Oh dear, now I’m going to go have to have fun on Pinterest and finds things. You should not have posted this. 🙂

    • Haha! I love your enthusiastic response. And if I get someone else addicted to Pinterest… well… I’m not going to apologize for that.
      And a Tiffany’s wedding sounds so cool! I may now have to look that up!

  3. I love this theme so much! I just went to a wedding at a library, and although they didn’t exploit the book theme as much as I would have, it was still one of the best weddings I’ve ever been to.

    • I’ve never been to a wedding at a library, but I did attend one at the Natural History Museum in Cleveland. The reception was in the Dinosaur exhibit! How cool is that?
