We are only 7 odd weeks away so getting the finer details together. Next on my wedding list are the table names. We are going to have 8 tables.
I have gone through the general ideas of place names, birds, flowers etc but none of them are really ‘us’. Instead I have another idea that I hope will work.
What about if we spell out a sentance (a message to everyone that came) with the table names. I was thinking somthing like
Thank. You. For. Coming. To. Our. Wedding. xx
So one table would be called ”our” and one table would be called ‘wedding’ etc. They wouldn’t be in any order so those guests that were intersetd would have to figure out what the message is.
Is this too random in your opinion?
Thanks ladies – any opinion appreciated!

honestly, i think most of your guests wouldn’t quite put it together.

I wouldn’t say that it’s too “random” but it might be confusing for them.

I do like this idea, but you want to be sure your guests understand that it is a sentence, vs. thinking “why is this table named “our??”
The best way I can think of conveing this would be your escort table set up.
I would bascially bulk each of the escort cards for each “word” together and leave a few inches before the next “bulk” Then place a larger sign behind the each group of cards with the word itself (that way the set up on the escort card table itself will spell out the sentence)
this may be confusing, but I can picutre it in my head 🙂 haha!

I think it’s kind of cute. : ) I don’t know if I support the whole “letting guests figure it out”, though. I’d post a seating chart/map thing, with the names of the tables in a sensible order, so that EVERYONE will get it. Otherwise I’d think it was really weird that the “table” on my escort card was “you”, “for”, “to” or “our”. If you really want to leave it up to the guests to guess, maybe try combining words (ex. “thank you”, rather than “thank” & “you”).
