The Giving Tree Inspires Wedding Invitation

The classic kid’s book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein inspired intricate invitations for an upcoming wedding, making headlines in the wedding blog world.

Offbeat Bride has the scoop: “I have to confess, I got a little teary-eyed over Andrew and Jackie’s Giving Tree wedding invitations, made by Kim from NMI Creations. (Did you pick up on the special wording of “share” and “give” like for The Giving Tree? Subtle, eh?) If you think the invitations are cute, wait until you see their matching Save the Dates AND the completed invitation suite with the hidden tear-inducing surprise!”

This could very easily produce a wave of children’s book inspired wedding materials. What classic book would you use for your wedding invitations? (Via Reddit)

UPDATE: Publishers Marketplace news editor Sarah Weinman added some context on Twitter: “That is just wrong … And you know why that is wrong/hilarious? Because Shel dedicated THE GIVING TREE to an old girlfriend to explain why he couldn’t commit.”
