Nothing is as comforting as the smell of a new book and flipping page after page as you get lost in the story. Why not tie that comfort feeling into your wedding day? There are so many ways to create simple yet classy literary decorations for your big day! 

So elegant and so easy! Grab a stack of your favorite books to create your own personal center pieces! Add your favorite quote of the book or spruce them up with some flowers! 

Sprinkle the love of your favorite pages and create these simple heart page cut outs for confetti. Whether using the confetti on the tables or on the aisle, your guests will love the simplicity and creativity of incorporating books pages! 

Why not walk down an aisle filled with your favorite book quotes and passages?! This aisle runner can also function as a great backdrop for gorgeous wedding portraits.

Need tablecloths? By attaching various pages of books together, you have the perfect tablecloth runner for your guests to enjoy while they indulge in their meals! 

Anne of Green Gables Wedding Inspiration

Did you read Anne of Green Gables growing up? It's one of our favorites and we are over the moon to share this book inspired wedding concept!  As we celebrate ,we couldn't be happier to meld our two favorite things: literature and weddings! In today’s beautifully styled shoot, Nick + Lauren Photography celebrated the story of Anne of Green Gables all the way down to the carrots.

Parsimony Inspired had the chance to ask Lauren of  Nick + Lauren Photography about their process and how Anne of Green Gables inspired them! "Storytelling has always been the root of my inspiration when it comes to photography. I love motivated and driven characters, interesting story lines, and beautifully written details that eloquently describe the scene at hand. Anne of Green Gables is a novel that has remained close to my heart ever since I was a child, so when it came to brainstorming a concept for our first ever styled shoot, I couldn't have thought of a more inspiring story to tell.  As the story of Anne of Green Gables is set in the turn of the 20th century, I thought it was only true to the piece to have vintage styled attire and decor to truly capture the essence of both Anne and Gilbert. A touch of whimsy, deep jewel colors, and the art of emotion helped to create the story of these two classic lovers."

Because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worth while.
— L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
