We recently planned a wedding up at Saddle Ridge in Beaver Creek, Colorado. The bride requested books to be a part of her wedding decor plan. Not only did she want books for visual decorations, but they also had multiple readings during the ceremony from books like The Great Gatsby and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. It was so romantic and personal. We loved the idea of using books as reference to their lives but also because books are so beautiful. Keep reading to see more ideas on how to incorporate books into your decor plan.
We love these rustic books that look like they have been through years of love. The books on the left have been covered to match the decor while the books on the right are just old leather bound books. They are gorgeous and Ron Burgundy would be proud.You can use pages to create these sweet hearts displayed on your favorite books. We love how antiquated the tables can look with vintage tins, books, and candles.The wedding of Alana & Eric that we planned for at Saddle Ridge in Beaver Creek, CO had many globes, books, and arrangements like this one. The feeling it creates is romantic, curios, and antiquated. As a Beaver Creek wedding florist, we get to play with a lot of different mountain rustic wedding decor ideas. We loved the idea of using the books as vehicles for this wedding floral design. Like this succulent garden inside of the book! How neat!
