Unless you’re doing open seating table numbers are inevitable. Yeah, you can use the standard numbers that your wedding venue most likely can provide, but to add a little more pizzazz to your tables, why not try a unique idea.
I love this idea because then you get to include something for guests to look at while at their table and also gives them the opportunity to visit other tables and look at more photos.
I had a couple last year who did flowers as their table numbers and on the back of each card they looked up each flowers meaning. I though this was a great touch! And for each favor at that table they did seeds from that flower. They coordinated each centerpiece to match the tables so the guests could find their tables easier. This is a little bit harder because the room still needs to look put together, but they pulled it off.
You can also do this with spices, trees, and even vegetables.
One of my favorite ideas is naming your tables after different places.
You can choose places that have special meaning to you as a couple, such as your first date or places that you have visited. You can also do different places in the area. I always love it when couples write a little bit about the place, that way people can learn why it is important to you or a story about what happened when you were there. Was that where your first apartment was? Is that where you two met? Do you go on vacation there every year? What is the funniest thing that happened and why is it so important?
This one really allows you to add personality and your own touches to your wedding and include your family and friends into your personal lives.
This one kind of ties into the one above just with a different twist. You can take pictures of all your travels and on each table do a different pic of you and your new husband/wife.
It really adds that personality and personal style to your wedding.
I think the overall goal and idea behind any part of your wedding is to make it your own. Don’t feel like you have to do things a certain way because that’s what tradition says or that’s what everyone else is doing. It’s your big day and it only happens once make it your own and most of all have fun with it!
