Dustin and I are book people. We both hold degrees in English Lit, and we have more books than clothes and cooking supplies (and we have LOTS of clothes and cooking supplies).
So perhaps naturally (and not quite intentionally), books just kept coming up in the way our wedding was coming together.
First, it was in the poems we’re drafting into our wedding ceremony (Neruda, Donne, Cummings). Then, it was in the idea I stole (from one of the bazillion wedding blogs I read) for our ring “pillow” that we’ll use for our ring warming ceremony:
The next idea we have for incorporating books is in our engagement photos. I’ve always wanted to have part of our engagement photos in a library, with photos of us flirting through the bookshelves. Maybe something like this?
Our wedding announcements (no invitations) are going to be library themed, too.
And a few days ago, I had the brilliant (imho) idea to make our ceremony programs out of vintage Little Golden books.
And somehow, I didn’t make the book-ey connection until the Little Golden idea popped into my head. I’m a little dense. My mom would say I read too much.
