Book Themed Wedding

I’ve mentioned on my blog that I married earlier this year. I wanted to share a few snapshots from my wedding. Though not all of them of course since those are dear to my heart. Ha ha. Prior to the wedding, I had several ideas for the theme. I was very indecisive when it came to it. Though I looked on Pinterest and wedding magazines, I was overwhelmed by all my choices! I changed my theme depending on season and color, but somehow I knew that those ideas I had were not for me. My sister-in-law became my wedding planner and coordinator, and she helped me decided on a book themed wedding. The answer was simple and right in front of me. A book themed wedding for a bookworm like me!

A book themed wedding was very simple and aesthetically pleasing. My favorite part during wedding planning was shopping for several thrift books to be centerpieces. Specifically hardcovers. I know that Etsy and Ebay sell books, but I found those books to be a tad for more expensive. I felt that books from thrift stores was far more inexpensive. As for my bouquet, my sister-in-law made it for me. I had a lot of tremendous help which I am thankful for to this day!

When it comes to locations and finding the dream place can often be quite pricey. Trust me, I’ve been to several wedding venues to find the place. I was more invested in finding the perfect venue for the reception rather than the church. My husband and I traveled a lot to find the venue. I felt we travelled all over Southern California. There were some places that did not seem costly, but in fact were tremendously expensive. We did settle for a banquet hall because it was more budget friendly than having it at a restaurant or a country club. As for banquet halls, we found our place in Panorama City, CA. I don’t want to stereotype, but I’ll stereotype: I am Mexican and I have a big family. I needed a place that was going to big enough for all my relatives, without it being too costly. Platinum Banquet Hall in was the most economically friendly for us. What sealed the deal was an all you can eat buffet for all the guests. My family and I love to eat, so a buffet had won our hearts! The Church was the easiest one to find! I fell in love with Congregational Church-UCC immediately. It was so beautiful on the inside. I loved how it had a vintage feel to it. Anyways, I am sure you want to see the pictures.

  1. I love it! Absolutely love it! You and everything about your wedding was so beautiful! Those roses! If I was getting married now, I would do the same thing and copy you. Maybe I can talk my husband into a vow renewal…Probably not. Oh well. At least I got to see the beauty here. Congratulations!!!
