(Closed) Does this match my theme or am I throwing random things together now?

I think that the books would work out fine. If you are worried you could always decorate with some vines and flowers around the card box. If you are any good at calligraphy you could put some of Shakespeare’s titles on the books. Or you could paint some beautiful fairies on them.

ETA: If there are any drawings or paintings that you like as representations of A Midsummer’s Night Dream I’m sure you could find a way to decoupage them on the top book to make it look like a gorgeous cover.

Sounds like it would work great and look awesome.

Huh? I can’t picture it without you hollowing out all the books and leaving just the covers to stack. Have you seen one done before? I also don’t think 3 books is enough unless you’re having a really small wedding. I used 3 large boxes stacked and it was full for under 100 people.

Have an inspiration picture?

@ItWasntMe: I think she is talking about the book “boxes” you can buy at the craft store. They are already hollow. It’s just a box that is shaped and printed to look like a book.

We’re having a vintage book themed wedding and will be making the same thing for our card box (using the book boxes mentioned above)! I’d love to see your pictures when you’re done – our wedding isn’t until March 2012, so I didn’t make ours yet. 

I think if you incorporate other elements from the wedding (i.e. the moss, fairies, etc.), it will fit in just perfectly!

I think it is a great idea and goes well with the theme you have going on with your wedding! Smile I definitely want to see a post of the out come!
