After weeks of trying to find creative names for our reception tables, I figured it out. We both love movies, so I’m naming our tables after some of our favorite romantic movies. I’ve posted some examples. These will be mounted on tiffany blue cardstock before being placed in the card holders. Please tell me what you think! Or if you have any suggestions for movies – please share your favorites! We need about 15 more!

I love the ones you chose! Here are a few more off the top of my head:
– When Harry Met Sally
– Love Actually
– Gone with the Wind
– Sleepless in Seattle
– Pretty Woman
– Notting Hill

I think I like the smaller look better, however, I would be concerned that it wouldn’t stand out as much and you want people to be able to find their tables. A couple more ideas…
– Romeo and Juilet
– Dirty Dancing

I voted Larger … and my vote brought it to 50/50 (it’s early, yet). Although I think the smaller does look better, to help people find their tables the larger writing would be a big benefit. You could also consider putting the titles on some sort of backing or matting.
What a great, romantic idea… I love it!

I agree that you probably need to go with the bigger font just to make it easier for your guests to locate their tables.
Here’s a link to the list of American Film Institute’s Top 100 romantic movies (just in case you need more ideas):

Thank you everyone for your feedback (and movie ideas!). After much contemplation, I think the larger titles simply make more sense. I don’t want to complicate the process in finding seats, especially for our elderly guests. I’m just hoping that using word-titled tables instead of numbers doesn’t trip anyone up.
Can anyone speak from personal experience on this? Just wanted to make sure that people would be able to find their table and realize that the title (I’ll definitely include the word table on the escort cards – "Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Casablanca Table"). So hopefully people catch on!

I voted smaller font because I was thinking you might run out of space for the longer titels, but I do agree that the larger ones make it easier to read/find.
Here’s a few others:
The Wedding Singer
The English Patient
While You Were Sleeping

that’s a really really cute idea!
i think it’s a great conversation starter for your guests too!

I like the smaller and voted for smaller but after reading some of the other posts, the larger might be easier to read for your guest. Other movies:
An Officer and A Gentleman
Beauty and the Beast
The Goodbye Girl

I have a question for you all. I might steal this idea and work it into our vintage theme, using only classic, older movies. How do you type words over the image though? What program do you have to use? And Miss Edamame, what font did you use and where did you find such fabulous pictures from those movies?? Thanks!!

I also really love On Golden Pond – a great love story and a very realistic portrayal of love, life and marriage.
