Me and my fiance are big readers, so for our wedding we are decorating with old vintage books, candles, and words. We are getting married in a church and we wanted to do something different for the unity symbol. We dont want to do the whole family candle/unity candle thing…and we dont want to do the mixing of sand or anything like that. So I was thinking we could bind our life stories togther by “binding” the book in front of our friends and family as a sign of our unity, the problem is i cant find any simple and fast ways that dont require tools and a lot of work. I want something simple and fast but doesnt look cheap and preschool. If you have any ideas that would help me so much! Thank you! {:

This might be of some advice but I will generally use Tape.

Preferably black Electric Tape granted its not some collectors edition or a book very personal to me I will get the right material, (Sometimes I just use the THICK poster board) and use staples, better used with a staple gun, and just get that sucker back on there and do some touching up to it and it work just should be fine.

Hope I can help!

Buy beautiful ribbon or material (cut very long strips and sew all cut edges) and together tie your life story book in a bow to become one , symbolizing your new life together. Leave the ends very long for a long life together. Each year add another book to symbolize your marriage years together. = )
