Literary themed wedding ideas

Inspired by the upcycled book clutch project in issue 39, we’ve gathered the web’s top literary themed weddings ideas for a geek-chic wedding

The Great Gatsby, The Lord of the Rings, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter – you’ve got to admit, just the titles alone provide a lengthy list of DIY wedding ideas. Traditional weddings are beautiful and elegant, but your relaxed themed event can be just as sophisticated. From table decorations to book-related jewellery there’s tons of ideas online, and we found 8 of the best.

Why themed weddings? If like us your wedding moodboard is a mishmash of inspiration you’ve collected over the months *cough*years*cough* then a theme can really help narrow it down. Use it to reflect your interests and personality! Here’s a closer look at literary themed wedding ideas we’ve gathered from around the web:
