Yup, your standard, traditional, table numbers, everyone always has.. nothing wrong with them, but, CAN YOU DO BETTER?
When arranging your guest tables, it is important to name or number each table so that each guest knows exactly where they are expected to sit during the reception.
Simply numbering your tables in order is the easiest way to handle this wedding detail. However, finding a more creative way to name each table can add some entertainment to your reception and can lead to more design or décor options as well.
For example, if you and your fiancé do a lot of traveling or hope to in the future, you can name each table based on a particular travel destination. One table can be called Paris and can have an Eiffel tower as part of the centerpiece. Get the idea?
Or, choose to name your tables based on a shared hobby, favourite restaurants, or pastimes, like a favourite sport. Do you love to ski? Name each table by ski resort and use different ski related items as part of your table décor. See the pattern?
How about this? Display your table numbers is to have numbers printed out on large cards. Take your photographer out for the day and do a fun shoot with the two of you holding each number. This is a great way to mesh with your photographer before the wedding and it adds conversational interest to each table.
