  • Bookmarks for favors or STDS?
  • Book invitation or old library checkout things like here: http://blog.vowdoo.com/2009/07/
  • Typewriter for people to write in the guestbook
  • This is a little more out there, but maybe have the tiers of your cake (if you’re having one) be books.
  • Have any of the books you like been made into movies? You could probably get some songs from soundtracks to dance to.

That’s all I got. 🙂

We’re book nerds too & are using it in our wedding . . . our favors/escort cards are going to be bookmarks.  We’re using quotes from authors on custom napkins (4 different quotes) and on our programs.  Our table numbers are photos of house numbers laying on the open pages of a book.  And, we’re going to use vintage books on our escort card table & other tables & locations as decorations.  And, my fiance wrote a children’s book about our relationship & is having it animated by his brother, that will be our guestbook.

Also, our photographers used books in our engagement photos.

Maybe you could have your cake look like a stack of y’all’s favorite books:

I don’t know how feasible invites like these are but they are fricken cool!  Maybe you could do something thinner:

These library STD are pretty cool too:

I like books a lot too. One thing really cool I’m doing is ordering a card catalog drawer off of ebay and making cards sort of like card catalog cards in illustrator with “wishes”, “predictions”, and “Advice for a happy marriage” written on the bottoms. Instead of a guest book, people will sign the cards and file them back into the card catalog drawer.

Check out Mrs. Lovebug’s (former bee) wedding. She did a great job of incorporating books in a really cool way.

Pages out of a book could be used for a banner, origami, wreath, etc.

Fiance and I are both writers, graduate students, and book nerds, so this thread is probably my favorite at the moment! In any case, you could do a book centerpiece, like this:

I’d still like to incorporate some flowers into mine, but if you Google “book centerpieces,” you get a lot of great images.

Also, hit up book fairs, library sales, and used bookstores for some vintage titles, as well as paraphernalia, such as old catalogue cards (I know many libraries are using them for scrap paper), bookmarks, etc.

Great ideas! I’m an academic so these ideas should work well for me as well!

We’re huge booknerds too, and incorporating books into our centerpieces and place cards – but you said you are not having those, right?

We also had book-marks as our Save the Dates! Here’s a pic of how our bookmarks turned out (you could certainly make them look more vintage, or have the theme of a certain book).
