We did books for our centerpieces!  Each table had it’s own genre of books, along with a tea cup candle and a bud vase.  On our table numbers, we wrote an explanation of the genre and why we chose it (ie. Poetry because Darling Husband has always loved/read it)

We loved this part of our wedding and a lot of guests commented on how they liked it and learned a lot about a variety of authors/genres that they had never read before.  You could totally do something similar with Jane Austen and similar authors from about the same time period (Charlotte Bronte, Emily Bronte, Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickenson, Daphne de Maurier, etc.)

I wish I could do this. But Fiance is so not a fan of books at all. I will be walking down the aisle to the theme from Masterpiece Theater. I will have a lot of lilac and pink colors in the reception.. candles and flowers. I will have some of my books tied with nice ribbons on the table. However, the reception tables and escort cards are all FI’s. I know he wouldn’t want to see Wuthering Heights or Little Women as table settings 🙁
