How to create a book-themed wedding

Do you and your partner love reading but don’t quite fancy going all out and planning a full themed Harry Potter or Lord of The Rings extravaganza? Then don’t worry, we have some smaller scale inspiration for you to create a book-themed wedding in keeping with the classic romance of a wedding, but still celebrating your love of literature.

Bookmark Saves the Dates

Get your guest to bookmark the date and send out save the dates in the shape of bookmarks for your guests to use. We love this design from PaperGoodiez.

Design your Wedding Invitation around Classic Books

Get creative with your invitations and make your own mini books or take inspiration from the look of classics like this one designed with grain linen and embossed details from Swash and Fold.

BE Creative with Paper Flowers

Either make you own paper flowers from pages of your favourite literature or have a professional do it for you. Get creative with the flowers. Have them on their own or mixed with foliage for beautiful bouquets, buttonholes or table centrepieces. Use them any way you would a normal flower and they can be kept after the wedding.

creative Confetti 

Instead of having traditional confetti use page cuttings in the shapes of hearts. If your venue doesn’t allow anything apart from biodegradable confetti then use your favourite pages to make the confetti cones. 

Stack Books for Centrepieces

A popular favourite for brides looking to create that vintage look, or who love literature. Stack a collection of your favourite books in the middle of your wedding breakfast table and adorn with flowers.

Get Creative with your table names

Name your tables after your favourite books or authors. Or go one step further and name it after your favourite romantic novel couples.

Design your perfect cake

If you don’t quite fancy having a cake in the shape of books then have your favourite pages from novels printed onto the icing for a classic finish.
