Hi, loves! Emma here. As an author (of this and this), book lover, and avid wedding theme enthusiast, the idea of planning a library or book themed bridal shower and/or wedding sounds magical. As the great J.K. Rowling said it best: “I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.” I think similar magic happens when you plan a book themed bridal shower or wedding.

If you are a book enthusiast, or you’re planning a bridal shower for a book enthusiast, a literary theme is really a no-brainer. You don’t see this theme overdone all over the place, so it is still a unique idea. Plus, a book themed bridal shower or wedding can be totally customized with decor and accents to highlight a favorite series (like Harry Potter, for example).
Library Card Bridal Shower Invitations
As with any good theme, a book themed bridal shower should start out with insanely creative invitations. And I can’t think of a better way to invite guests to a literary themed shindig than with library card bridal shower invitations. Can you?!
I spotted these invitations over at Foreword Press, where Lindsay is changing the invite game for good with seriously creative paper goods (remember these?) Her library card bridal shower invitations are the latest to steal my heart and, apparently, the hearts of her clients, too. If you check out her reviews, you’ll see that these library card invites are not only popular because they’re cool, but because they’re well-made and “really look like a library card“.
And the literary fun doesn’t stop at the invitations; you can keep this theme rolling with coordinating thank you favor tags (great for tying in a library theme to any bridal shower favors you choose) and thank you cards to send to guests. (P.S. Foreword Press is happy to custom-make invitations for weddings instead of bridal showers, if that’s more your style).
The front of the envelopes look like this:
Here’s the up-close view of these library card bridal shower invitations. The author? You and your soon-to-be spouse. The title: A Love Story. And the best line ever: May we borrow you?
All the important bridal shower details are included on these library card invitations including the date, the time, the guest of honor, the location, how and where to RSVP — even the registry information.
And the inside of the envelopes even has a book themed liner! I swear, Foreword Press has thought of it all.
And if you’re on the fence about an entire book themed shower or wedding, opt for the fun library card save the date instead:
I have to say, it’s just as awesome. The dates stamped on the side of the library card can include notable dates on your own timeline: for example, your birthdays, the date you met, the date you got engaged, and of course, the upcoming wedding date.
