SHARE

After reading Sarah Dessen’s latest novel, Once and For All we have to admit that we’ve got wedding fever. Whether you’re planning for your wedding right now or just want a head start, you’re going to need to make sure you have everything you need for your bookish-themed wedding. We’ve thought of even the smallest details so you won’t have to!

One of the first things you should cross off your Wedding To-Do List is finding the centerpieces for your tables. The centerpiece is your starting point, because it sets everything in motion and gives you a sense of direction for your other nookish ideas.

 

The Newly-Weds Table

This is where most of your pictures are going to happen during your reception so you want to make sure it goes along with your bookish theme. You can add a page runner, or have book stacked along the table with beautiful flowers or candles for a romantic, cozy feel.

 

The Wedding Cake

What’s a wedding without cake?! Cakes are meant to eaten… but that doesn’t mean they have to stray away from your bookish theme.

 

Souvenirs
