Inspiration for Your Book-Themed Wedding

‘Tis the season for weddings! I seem to be at an age where people are getting hitched left and right…and up, down, and sideways! This summer I cat-sat for a former colleague while he tied the knot, and I recently accompanied a good friend to help her shop for her wedding dress and invitations.

I’m also reading The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan, a book I won in a Goodreads contest. Sullivan narrates the stories of five individuals from different time periods ranging from the 1940s when Frances Gerety penned “A Diamond is Forever” for De Beers to modern day when a woman named Kate refuses to marry her partner despite family pressure.

I haven’t finished reading the novel, so in the meantime, I wanted to share some Buzzfeed images in case anyone is interested in throwing a book-themed wedding. Whether you’re heading to the altar next summer or only in your dreams, feel free to drool over these fun ideas!

Many libraries are gorgeous locations for engagement photos or wedding ceremonies, and love poetry makes for wonderful vows. The possibilities are endless!

So is a book-themed wedding your cup of tea? What kinds of stories would you incorporate and how?
