Love reading books? Make them a part of your wedding day. Have a book archway instead of a floral one to get all your candid pictures in. The archway can be made entirely of books and nothing else but you also personalise some elements. Foliage and floral arrangements can be used throughout the archway which can enhance the look and make it feel more like a celebratory archway. This way you can add an element that is dear to your heart while still keeping it within the theme. 

Table Numbers

The table numbers for the wedding guests can be written on the cover of the book. The book can have clever numbers or even riddles for the guest to have a little wordplay if that’s what you prefer. The table numbers can be a cute way of personalising your wedding decor and have a more sustainable option for decor on your special day. These table numbers can even be upholstered on the books and even embroidered.
