One of the trends I have noticed this year are the use of books. That’s right books, couples are repurposing books in all ways for their special day. They have lovingly altered books for wedding programs, guestbooks, and even invitations! It adds a sort of vintage charm to your day. Check out these inspiration pics! The first of a program made out of a book and the next invitations sent out in the fronts of books that the guests then keep after the fact.
Is anyone using used books, or altering books for their day?

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.
