Literary Love: Books as Wedding Props

I'm torn when it comes to the technological marvels of ebooks — there's just something magical about opening up an old, worn paperback with notes scribbled in the margins from a past version of you, a dear family member, or maybe an intriguing stranger. I love the musty scent of the pages, the cover art, and the look of a mismatched literary collection on my bookshelves. So naturally, I'm all about books being used in engagement shoots and wedding tablescapes as the prop du jour. Whether they are on bookshelves, in hand, stacked on tables, or given as favors, a weathered book can add a touch of romance and history to your nuptials.

I love and value books, and I think it's silly to use them as "props" - especially on a table where they would be likely to be damaged by spilled food and drinks.
