We’re Nerds

…or I am, anyway. My undergraduate degree was in math and I’m finishing my graduate degree in business—does it get much nerdier than that? So somehow these *ahem* math-themed centerpieces really appeal to me.

I would also love to totally annoy my guests by doing something like this.

Just kidding—I wouldn’t actually do that, although I think it’s a really funny idea. Has anyone actually done this? I would probably end up standing there and helping all the hungry guests solve their math problems to find their table numbers!

Mr. Lemur is not so much of a math nerd—I won’t mention how he did in math in high school. Plus, I’m not sure how well having a math themed wedding would go over with our families and friends. I’m already the nerd of the family! But we do both love to read—and we have lofty ambitions of a library in our house someday.

Plus, books are just classically romantic and elegant. So inspiration pictures like these ones really spark my imagination.

I know there are lots of other inspiration pictures for book-themed weddings out there—please share! And tell me about yours. What worked? What would you do differently? Any other suggestions?

    @Miss Lemur: I’m unashamedly recruiting the help of friends. The small hot glue guns are only 2.99 these days, so I’ve bought extras for when friends want to help but don’t have them.

    i’m doing something sort of similar with our centerpieces…we’re both book lovers!
