Go the unconventional way by attaching fairy lights or lightbulbs strung together from open novels for a magical touch. The dimly lit atmosphere is perfect for an intimate, outdoors wedding whilst overlooking scenic backdrops.

Pick your favourite book covers to create place cards and use library checkout cards as an indication of the seating arrangements as a quirky nod to your love for literature and libraries. If your life is an open book, why not have a literal installation of the same at every table as part of the décor?

Provide your guests with all the bookish goodness in the forms of personalised bookmarks, customised love poems or famous quotes along with book confetti in a jar all in paper book bags to tie in the literary theme as little mementos so that they can reminisce on all the fond memories of the most special day of your life. You could even set up a mini library with various paperbacks for your guests to choose from as their personal wedding favour.
