Its no secret that we women love to read. Classics such as Les Miserables, Pride & Prejudice, and Memoirs of a Geisha sends most of us reeling into a world of fantasy where our one true love confesses their undying love and a wedding is planned in two (maybe 3) days. Alas, reality sets in and in order to keep our sanity we spread the wedding planning process over a 6-12 month process. If you are a woman who wants to incorporate your love of books into your grand day, how do you go about planning a book themed wedding without is being flat and boring? Good question! A book themed wedding can be far from drab and dry by incorporating color, creativity, and unconventionality. You can design a bold and daring look by using these ideas (and some of your own) into your wedding planning to create the book themed wedding of your dreams.
1. Select a bold color as a base to build your book wedding theme. Since the pages of books are usually white, off white, or cream, you will need a daring color to make the pages pop.
2. Visit yard sales or thrift stores to find hard back books of various sizes to use as centerpieces for the table.
3. Incorporate favorite book lines into the wedding invitations.
4. Wrap bridesmaid and groomsman gifts with parcel paper and use old library checkout cards to compose a personalized message of thanks.
5. Select a book shaped wedding cake and use favorite books titles for each tier.
6. Use a library or bookstore for engagement or wedding day photos.
7. Create a customized aisle runner by using excerpts from love letters written.
8. Use book page favor bags (www.etsy.com/shop/theepapergirl) to send wedding guests off with a sweet treat.
9. Make a unique wall seating card display by using book pages and black matting formed in a perfect square.
10. Incorporate book flowers with real flowers to create a dramatic wedding bouquet.
The possibilities of creating a memorable and mouth dropping book themed wedding are endless. With a little creativity, lots of patience and multiples hands, the vision can become a reality. For more inspiring ideas visit http://www.pinterest.com/randomhouse/literary-wedding/ or www.etsy.com.
