Old books imply sophistication; an old-world fascination that steeps libraries and museums in their intriguing beauty and interest.

Some ideas include:

  • Pile them as centrepieces on each of the reception venue’s tables instead of traditional flowers.
  • Fashion your wedding cake to look like a well-read novel with dog-eared pages.
  • As guest favours, give your friends and family members book ends, bookmarks or library cards.

  • Hand-write your wedding invitation on a bookmark and insert these into some of your favourite classics, bought at second-hand shops, for very special invites.
  • Use books in your wedding photographs as props.
  • Have custom-made shoes created using print motifs, perhaps of your favourite poetry or romantic passage.
