If you follow us on Twitter, you will have noticed our great love for the library wedding! Not only is it incredibly romantic to be surrounded by words of love, passion, and dedication, but I am also a great lover of books. When not living my fantastic everything events life, I can be found with a cup of tea and a good book. If you can relate at all, then you will love this book motif wedding as profiled by the Reflective Bride:
A wedding theme can also simply be a motif – a recurring symbol throughout the day – rather than a no-holds-barred homage to Star Wars or The Great Gatsby. The happy couple at that wedding chose to have a literary motif throughout their day, and I thought they achieved it so well – in a way that was consistent and yet subtle – that I might share it with others who are also feeling a little gun-shy about full-blown themed weddings. So how did they incorporate it?:
• Venue: The reception was held in the function space at a library.
• Invitation: The happy couple chose a wedding invitation styled like the cover of a Penguin Classics book. They also used the same style for the menu, placed on the tables during the reception.
• Ring box: Also as a nod to their favorite film “Up”, the newlyweds used this “Our Adventure Book” as a ring box. The box was passed around one by one to guests during the ceremony, as part of a ring-warming ritual.
• Photographs: As part of the post-ceremony session with the professional photography, the bridal party took snaps in amongst the stacks of the library. They have fabulous pictures of them posing up against the bookshelves, and one with the full bridal party peeking over the top of a book as they pretended to read.
