Literary wedding invitations for the bookworms and the academics in love

By on Apr 10th

Story Book Wedding Invitations
How gorgeous are these storybook wedding invitations!? These make my heart flutter. And they got me thinking… what other amazing book and academia-themed wedding invitations could I find?

If you're a bookish bride who loves reading, libraries, language, and literature then the rest of these literary wedding invitations that I found should cause some of you to do some fluttering yourselves. Some of these invites were DIYd from Offbeat Brides past, some for sale right this second from Minted. (Psst: you can get 10% off and FREE shipping on your favorite Minted invites if you use the code OFFBEAT10 at checkout! You're welcome.) Now let's adjust our glasses and peruse these bookish beauties…

Bookish Invites

Speaking of storybooks… I love that these wedding invitations look like pages torn right from a book. They even tea-stained the pages!

These library card invitations were perfect for the wedding of a librarian and a bibliophile! And the bookish couple was nice enough to show you how you can make your own over here.

Library Wedding InvitationsIf you don't want to go the DIY route, you can easily order these Library card wedding invites from Minted!

IMG_03782Do you remember these Save the Date bookmarks? These could also work well as wedding invitations/Save the Dates — the bookmark comes out of the slot and works as a reminder to your guests, while the bulk of the invitation gives your guests all the info they'll ever need.

Love Grade Wedding InvitationsAny teachers in love in the house? Send everyone your very own report cards.

rsvpHow about this library-themed RSVP that even includes space for the guests to write in their three favorite authors?

Classic Inkwell Wedding InvitationsWell, maybe the writers in the house would love this one even more. The ink splotches are so neat.

Love Story Wedding InvitationsWant to be more subtle with your book-lover ways? This "love story" wedding invitation with printed bunting (how cute would those be IRL?) is kind of perfect.

Based on our last reader survey, I know that a LOT of you reading this self-identify as academia nerds. So tell me, did or will you celebrate your love of literature with your invitations?
