Do I Have to Invite Wedding Shower Guests to My Wedding?

What's the etiquette on showers? It feels weird to invite people to a shower who aren't invited to the wedding, but my sister wants to throw one for me.



Admittedly, we're major bookworms here at Equally Wed and have a weakness for library-inspired details, which is why we were completely smitten with the ideas that TresSugar came up with for a book-themed event. Fellow booklovers, dive into these 10 page-turning Dewey Decimal details to add a dose of literary charm to your big day celebrations (p.s. you'll want to bookmark these!):

book-themed-table-numbers

Tell your personal love story by labeling each table with a different chapter at the reception with a decorative index showing the seat assignments.

library-wedding-venue

It's certainly fitting to get married in a locale that houses thousands of love stories. Wow friends and family by having your event in your local library, a la Carrie Bradshaw's original plan in the  Sex and the City movie.


book-themed-wedding-centerpieces

Add literary charm to your centerpieces by stacking books, topped with table numbers. Add some personal touches by using you and your new spouse's hardback favorites.

card-catalog-wedding-escort-cards

Infuse vintage library style with card catalogs to hold your guests' seating assignments, or create boxes to resemble them as brides Jenna and Christina did.


book-themed-wedding-favors

Sweets look even sweeter when wrapped in stories! Wrap book pages into cones and fill with candy or other goodies to give out as favors.

book-themed-wedding-typewriter-guest-book

Let guests type out their well wishes in old-school fashion—with a vintage typewriter.

book-themed-bridal-bouquet

Have someone crafty make a paper-flower bouquet for the brides-to-be.

 

book-themed-wedding-decor

Enlist your crafty friend to turn beloved books into garlands and decor for a backdrop that's like a fairytale.

 

book-themed-wedding-napkin-holders

Wrap book pages around the napkins with the names of the guests.
