Bookmark Escort Cards

As promised, here are the bookmark favors that will also be used as escort cards at an upcoming wedding. Yes, that purple wedding! The bride and groom both love to read and so they thought a way to share that with their dearest friends would be with a bookmark. The table number is on a separate little paper that can easily be removed after the party is over. And we thought a variety would be a fun way to go too!

Book Lover Wedding Accoutrements

For book lovers that want to bring their favorite diversion into their wedding I've got a few ideas. I have printed this couple's damask theme onto vellum with a shimmery lavender background. A couple eyelets and ribbon and museum putty to adhere it to the books and their table numbers are ready to go! Another table number option is to use pages from old books to cover a piece of cover weight paper (folded sandwich board style) and add the table number in ribbon of the color theme. I wish I had some lightweight wooden numbers in my workroom because I think they could be painted black and glued to the book page background.

And let's not forget the desert bar or the cocktail bar or any other table that might need a little explanation or instruction. In the lower photo I glued some book pages onto an easel back and printed on a piece of vellum "Let them eat cake" and used silk ribbon to hold the vellum onto the pages.

I've got some lovely bookmark escort cards to share next that will go so nicely with any of these ideas. Oh, there are so many book lover options out there!
