20 Creative Ideas for a Book-Inspired Wedding

As the popular song goes, "Love moves in mysterious ways." Indeed, there is no telling when and where love will come to you. Sometimes, love finds you in unfamiliar places. You meet someone, get to know that person and eventually realize that he is the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. Other times, you find someone that shares your passion and interest like literature and books. And you realize that you just click.

You can celebrate your love for books by making it the central theme of your wedding. Here are 20 creative ways on how you can put together a book-inspired wedding:

Send out an invitation inspired by the lay-out of a book.

Instead of fresh flowers, go for paper flower bouquet as a homage for written materials.

Add a quirky boutonniere to the groom's suit and tie.

Let your favorite books stand witness to your profession of love for one another by transforming bookshelves into an arch for the wedding ceremony.

Alternatively, you can say your vows under a wedding arch made of stacked books.
