The elegant and vintage look of libraries, and old books filled with memorable characters and exciting plots have the power to transport us to another world — and a literary wedding that’s inspired by vintage books gives us that same magical feeling. We’re all aflutter with the idea of a literary vintage wedding, so we thought we’d share some of our favorites. Check out some of our favorite ideas below for inspiration. Trust us, after seeing these gorgeous photos, you’re going to want to use this concept for your wedding theme.
Invitations & Save-the-dates
Excite guests about your literary wedding right from the start with book-inspired invitations and save-the-dates.
Bride & Groom Accessories
Include accessories such as bouquets or boutonnieres made of book pages, or cuff links that feature the cover of your favorite book.
Use bookshelves or a book arch as a ceremony structure to say your vows in front of.
The Ring Box
Instead oh having you ring bearer use a pillow, have him bring walk the rings down the aisle in a box that looks like your favorite book.
Photo Ideas After the Ceremony
If you’re lucky enough to get married in a library, we say take full advantage of your surroundings for photos! The bookshelves alone make for a beautiful backdrop. Also, don’t forget to get detailed shots of the libary itself.
Escort Charts and Cards
Use books or bookmarks as escort cards. You can label each table as the name of a book, famous romantic characters, or as chapters.
Of course, your table wouldn’t be complete without some books as props. Again, open a book to resemble a chapter (table number) or add a card with the table number to your books.
We really love the idea of using these vintage typewriter favor boxes as place settings. They look so vintage and match perfectly with a literary wedding.
Aside from books themselves, torn out pages, typewriters, and stamp sets also make perfect decorations for a literary wedding and can be used in a number of different creative ways.
Use books and script to make your desserts and dessert table look straight out of a library.
Some of our favorite ideas for literary wedding favors include antique book favor boxes, bookmarks, vintage typewriter key magnets and of course books themselves.
So, what do you think? Have you been inspired to have your own literary wedding?
