I wanted to use my collection of Sir Walter Scott books in centerpieces, but then I had images of little kids tearing out pages and guests spilling drinks on them. *shudder*

I also thought about just buying ‘new’ old books, but I felt weird about having random books on our tables. Cute trend, though!

I didn’t realise this was a trend!

P and I have decided on book decor, because we both love books. This makes our wedding colours teal, apple green, and text. 🙂

Sidenote: I have been wavering about doing a boudoir shoot, but I found some book-text undies at the mall today! I bought two pairs, just in case.

We are using old book pages as envelope liners, and I was planning to use some old books as part of our centerpieces! Nothing valuable, though – more like, little books about love, etc. We also used many books in our epics, actually, playing around with fun titles. “Domestic Tranquility.” “A Book and a Love Affair.” “An Old Wife’s Tale.” Etc.

I adore that book invite! I would love to do that. 🙂

We’re hopping on the book train, but mostly because the library at the university my fiance attends puts out stacks of old books on a table in the lobby for people to take. I can’t say no to wedding decorations that are completely free! I’m stacking them in the centerpieces, decoupaging vases with torn pages, punching heart-shaped confetti from pages, and I’m considering using them to make a cake stand.

These took a ton of work, but turned out beautifully.
