there were two things i was certain of when i got engaged
the guy i was going to marry
and that there would be mason jars at my wedding
lots of them
everything else seemed to fall into place
around all the mason jars of course
...and then came baby...

novel idea: creative way to incorporate books into your wedding day decor


{via elizabeth anne designs}
{via 100 layer cake}

{via classic bride}


i'm really diggin' this idea of incorporating gently used books into the wedding day. it's such a great way to add height and dimension to a table, all while giving off a smarty pants vibe. you can collect beautifully colored hardcovers from your local salvation army, flea markets and garage sales. or, use the good old internet to score classic romance novels on online auction sites like ebay.

best yet, the books could double as favors for your guests!

you could leave library check-out cards at each person's seat with a little note letting them know the books are for their taking. the check-out cards could also double as place cards! the possibilities are endless : )

any other ideas?

Great idea! I helped a friend look at a bookstore for a wedding recently and the bookworm vibe was great! Makes for an at-home feel!
