Dream Weddings for Book Lovers

Spring is finally here, which means the birds will be chirping, the grass will be getting greener, and many people will getting married. For some reason, couples like to get married in the spring. Maybe, it has something to do with the nice weather.

To be completely honest, I thought weddings were more popular in the summer or fall months, but after reading several articles about weddings, I learned that the wedding season really begins in the spring. 

I'm always searching for new and exciting content creation or even content marketing tips for this blog (besides from book reviews), and for some reason or another, I ended up “googling” book themed weddings. If you have been following this blog lately, then you would know I have considered giving online dating a chance; so I have no idea why I wanted to learn more about weddings since I'm still single. Maybe I got tried of searching for dating sites that would appeal to me. I'm single, so I'm sure there are plenty of sites out there for me to choose from. Also, I don't have any kids, so I don't know how to approach online dating when you're a single parent.

Anyway enough of my rambling! Let's get back on topic!

I did some brainstorming and came up with idea for this post, titled, "Dream Weddings for Book Lovers," which features five wedding themes based on books. And no, I'm not turning this into a wedding blog, but I thought it would make a fun post for all my readers.

"Game of Thrones" Epic Weddings

HBO's Game of Thrones is one of the most poplar series currently on television, but for those of you who don't know, the series is based on the still unfinished "A Song of Fire and Ice" book series by George R. Martin. The television series and books have millions fan, so naturally there have many Game of Thrones themed weddings. Do a quick internet search for "Game of Thrones weddings" and you'll find many ideas for invitations, costumes, cakes, decorations, etc..

Believe it or not, some people even travel overseas to rent a castle for their weddings. To me, this is a great idea, but I can't imagine how much it would cost to rent an actual castle.

"Jane Austen" Romantic Weddings

While a Games of Thrones wedding would probably appeal to both women and men, a Jane Austen themed wedding would probably appeal mostly to female fans of her novels (Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Mansfield Park). However, a Victorian themed wedding might appeal to some men, too. (Including me, as I do like the novel Pride and Prejudice!).

From Pride and Prejudice-style invitations to Victorian-style wedding cakes, there are countless decorations you can create for a Jane Austen wedding. Then, of course, there's the wedding dress for the bride, which can be made from reproduction materials from the Victorian era.

"Harry Potter" Wizardry Weddings

I'm not a big Harry Potter fan, but the books and films have a huge fandom; so I can easily imagined that there have already been hundreds (if not more) Potterheads' (that's what the fans are official named) weddings.

Some couples have gotten married at the C Railroad Museum in Miami, FL, where there is a Hogwarts Express. Others dresses up (and probably holding wands) as their favorite characters, such as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger.

 "The Walking Dead" Zombie Weddings

Yes, I know AMC's The Walking Dead isn't based on an actual book, but it is based on a comic book created by Robert Kirkman. A zombie post-apocalyptic might not be a normal theme for a wedding, but many 'walker' fans have had a zombie wedding. That means the bride and groom literally dressed up as zombies and walk down the aisle. No, they don't wear masks, but instead they hire a makeup artist to make their faces look like decaying corpses. Sounds romantic, right?

Vampire Weddings

It seems you can have a wedding with just about any theme, which includes vampires. How are vampires related to books? Well, there are several popular novel series featuring vampires, such as The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, the Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries (a.k.a. - True Blood) by Charlaine Harris, The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith, Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer, and countless others.

I hope everyone likes these 5 bookish themed wedding ideas. Do you do your own online wedding planning? Do you have your own book inspired wedding theme? If so, please leave your thoughts down in the comment section.
