Bookworm Wedding 3: A Storybook Romance!

When I first became engaged, I picked up a copy of Brides magazine and it featured a story about wedding style inspiration from favorite children's picture books!
A school librarian's dream come true!
It features Lois Ehlert's Waiting for Wings, Barbara Cooney's Miss Rumphius, Cynthia Rylant's All in a Day, and Ludwig Bemelmans' Madeline.
Check out the link below to see the entire feature:

I'll be the first to admit that a children's book theme might be hard to pull off without looking too juvenile; however, a few little touches here and there would be oh so charming!

Probably the best opportunity would be through hand-illustrated invitations.
Here are just a few exquisitely crafted examples I found on

Continuing from the library wedding theme from my previous post, these invitations are super cool!

There are also so many ways to incorporate a sweet childhood nostalgia theme into a wedding...

Like centerpieces:

A paper doll garland:

A dollhouse entrance table:

A lollipop bouquet:

Clothespin doll cake toppers:

A candy-dot themed wedding cake:

Or a sweet shop-themed wedding cake table:

Even better! A summery, nostalgic candy bar!

And they lived happily ever after...
