So, my FI and I are big TV Show people. We are having minimal family at the wedding – because we have small families, not bc we’re trying to be mean 😉 – and a lot of friends, most of which know that we love talking about the shows we’re interested in. Weird, I know – but we’re both in the entertainment industry and love discussing characters, storylines, etc.
Anyhow, instead of numbers, or types of wine, or cities distinguishing guest tables from one another, we’re doing TV Shows. Each table will have a sign with a silhouette of something extremely recognizable from a show, that will match the namecards that the guests receive. The favors are being personalized to that particular table; for example, the Doctor Who table is getting clip-on bowties made from Doctor Who fabric. The LOST table will get candy/cookies with the Dharma Initiative logo on the box/bag, etc. The How I Met Your Mother table is getting clip on Duckie Ties (not exactly the same fabric, but close!), etc.
Each table will have at least 1 or 2 diehard fans of that show to help explain to everyone else, if they aren’t sure what show they’re sitting at, or how the favors tie in.
What do you think, and and would you find this weird?

That sounds super fun! I’m not usually a fan of weddings with themes, but I love yours! I love that the favors are going to coordinate with the tables show!

@StephieBee: OMG….I want to be @ the HIMYM table! Only comment is this: do you think it would be an issue if some people are getting edible favors while other are not?

Terrific idea! It’s nice when the couple find a way to individualize their wedding.

@Papillon23: You know, I thought about that, but I don’t think people will care too much because they may really like what the got anyway. And, if they do care, there can always be some sort of barter system that can be arranged! Haha!
Also, we’re doing an ice cream bar instead of cake, so I think people will hopefully be pleasantly full with good food and sweets 🙂

@StephieBee: You’ve got this well thought out! Make sure you post pics of the favors when they’re ready! I want to see them!

That is so awesome! Bowties are cool. Maybe on the Doctor Who table you could also have a fez and the words “Bad Wolf” somewhere. Your wedding is going to be so glorious 🙂 Are you going to have your photographer or videographer do anything with the TV show themes?

Thank you, all! I’ve been kinda stressing over it because the tables don’t really tie into each other, but I still thought it would be really cool.
@strawberrysunshine: What do you mean, have our photographer/videographer do anything with the TV show themes? What did you have in mind? 😀

What a great idea! I’ve never heard of anything like it, so you’ve got the unique factor going for you! I’d looooove to be sat at the Doctor Who table, both my FI and I are die hard fans!

@StephieBee: I’m just brainstorming, but maybe the video would have little snippets of the theme songs from the shows, or your guests might reenact a particular pose that relates to the show (like the silhouettes you were talking about). For example with Doctor Who, Eleven does a rather enthusiastic silly dance at Amy’s wedding. Another example is that in How I Met Your Mother, Barney frequently says, “Suit up!” That could go really cute with a picture of the groomsmen in their finery. I know some video editing places like Storymix allow for custom themes so maybe that’s something to look into? As a fellow TV enthusiast, I’m so excited to hear about how your wedding plans go! What are some of the other shows you’re planning on using?
