My wedding is garden casual with a slight victorian literature theme. We’re introducing the literature through our escort cards/favors (which are bookmarks) and other small touches. One way I wanted to bring in the literary theme is through table numbers.
We originally started trying to use book covers of books we’ve shared, but that idea turned out to look totally different on paper than in my mind, so I nixed it. However, I did come up with the idea below.
I used a page out of the first book we read together, “The Crimson Petal and the White,” and cheap plastic house numbers from Wal-mart and took a picture of them together. I used the site picnik.com to do my photo editing.
What do you guys think?

I also forgot to add that I’m going to round the edges of the pictures after I print them and mat them on blue shimmer scrapbook paper (to match our bookmarks).
We’re trying to be a little more conscious of the waste we make, so instead of printing separate menus for everyone, we’re going to stick menus on the back on the table numbers.

I think that is a great idea because it is personal too — wow, that’s a racy first book. 🙂 It would be nice to have the menus match the book font/style too.

It was a very racy first book. Lots of fun to explain to my friends and co-workers that the reason I was carrying around a 10 lb, 900 page book about a prostitute was because some guy I like bought it for me. Luckily, it turned out to be a really good book!
Good idea to use a similiar font as the book! Anyone know what serif font is traditionally used for book text?

I love it! I’m a bookworm too, but had never thought about a literary theme to the wedding.. nice.
