vintage book themed wedding

Vintage book themed wedding in a pastel wedding palette Vintage book themed weddings are lovely – but they’re normally done in neutral and brown tones. Why not girlie it up a bit with pastels like in this wedding inspiration board? Pastel colors add an undeniably feminine and romantic vibe to your wedding and would be absolutely perfect for spring.

Incorporating vintage books into your decor for a shabby chic look has never been easier. One creative way to do it is with these table number books from Beach Baby Blues:

book table numbers from other ideas I adore: Use a vintage book (like the bird manual shown below) as a guest book! Have guests sign and leave notes in the margins and in the white space on the photographs. For the ring bearer – instead of a traditional pillow – tie the ring on a book!

  1. I absolutely love today’s post! Book themed weddings are amazing! We featured one on Monday… and there is something to fun about them!

  2. I love the pastel twist to this theme! I also really like the idea of using stacked books as a cake stand or for added height. And I adore all the goodies from Beach Baby Blues. What a great little shop!

  3. Wow!! Full of Whimsy and Fun !! Beautiful Inspiration Board !!

  4. What a great idea! I love how the books naturally add depth and muted color. I can think of lots of voracious readers and brides-to-be who should consider this as a theme!

  5. Adore this theme!

  6. Love this theme with pastel colours, very pretty x

  7. Great idea for a guest book! Reminded me that I used to write on my schoolbooks as a child- thinking it would make school “more interesting” for the unfortunate people who had to use the books after me (we had a rental system at school).. How annoying is that!!
