Are you a fan of literary themed weddings? Well, I’ve got a treat for you today! Blogerina Courtney from She Always Loved Larking had a fabulous post featuring a bridal shower she threw for a bibliophilic bride! Check out some of the pictures below and read the full post here. (My favorite part of this bridal shower are the chocolate pies from The Help – minus, of course, the ‘secret ingredient). Plus, read on for a list of literary lovers and feel free to add to it in the comments!
Table numbers not your thing? Another awesome idea is to name them after literary couples!
Love the idea of tables named after literary lovers? Here’s a quick list I thought up…
Anne of Green Gables and Gilbert Blythe, Romeo and Juliet (sorta tragic, and they only knew each other for like, a week), Lancelot and Guinevere, Paris and Helena, Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler, Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley (yea I went there – so you may as well add Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger), Heathcliff and Catherine (from Wuthering Heights, mildly creepy if you consider she’s his adopted sister), Anna Karenina and Count Vronsky (again, maybe not the best choice since it’s a bit of a ‘train wreck’), Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, Jo and Frederick (from Little Women), Noah and Allie (from The Notebook), Jamie and Landon (from A Walk to Remember), main character lady who is never named in Rebecca and Maxim de Winter, Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester, Gatsby and Daisy, Dr. Zhivago and Lara, Marlena and Jacob (from Water for Elephants), Pip and Estella (from Great Expectations) Stevens and Miss Kenton (from The Remains of the Day) and…. that’s all I’ve got at the moment.

Great gift idea for your bridesmaids:
And last, but not least, don’t forget to get a shot of your bouquet with a few of your favorite titles.
