Our brides and grooms are always looking for new and exciting ways to inject their personalities into their big days. From colour theme and flowers to stationery, another part of the décor that offers endless options are the table plans. An increasing trend we are seeing is couples opting to forgo traditional table numbers and instead celebrate their unique story with personalised table names.
Some lovely options we have seen have included favourite restaurants, much loved holiday destinations, famous romantic couples and even comedy acts! One of our couples even turned their table numbers into a game! Guests had to guess the meaning behind the number table they were sat at. For example: 173 = the number of the couple’s first house or 6 = the number of holidays they have been on. This original idea really helped to break the ice at each table and also gave guests lovely little facts about the couple’s relationship.
For musical couples, we love the idea of using your favourite records, or if you and your beau are more the bookworm type, then using your top titles as table name inspiration is a lovely way to incorporate this trait into your big day. Another lovely idea for table names is calling them after herbs and flowers – this way the name can be easily tied into your table décor.
Not only are brides and grooms becoming more creative with the names of their tables, they are also upping their game with their table name presentation! One couple used lovely wooden scrabble pieces to label their tables which fitted in beautifully with the overall theme of the day. Couples have also used a centrepiece of candles with painted letters to add a soft glow and clearly signify the top table.
Even traditional table numbers are being displayed in new and interesting ways. From beautiful wooden cut-outs to copper piping numbers, our brides and grooms sure know how to put a personal and beautiful stamp on their big day.
