Save Your Place: Book-Themed Weddings
Book lovers rejoice! Themed weddings can be done, well, in a novel way. Don’t worry about looking costume-y or clownish–these days, grownup touches keep the party sophisticated and age-appropriate. If you and your fiancé have a shared love of a certain series, take stylish cues from the real-life couples below to create your own happy-ending wedding.
For the romantic, try: The Great Gatsby
Known as one of the best American novels ever written, bring F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic to life with a romantic Roaring 20s theme idea. From flapper dresses, feather headbands and live band music, your party will be the talk of the town (or local speakeasy).
