So, my wedding is three weeks away, and I need to make some table #’s. I am trying to decide between just numbering the tables and making cute signs w/numbers on them, or actually naming the tables (I was thinking of naming them after places on the Notre Dame college campus, where my FI and I met & both went to school). So, I am looking for any inspiration out there!
Also, for those who did name the tables, did the tables just have a name, or a # too? What did you put on the escort card – a # or a name?

It’s gonna sound nutzo but we’re naming our tables after Dharma stations on Lost. FI & I are HUGE Lost nerds so it’s fitting. We’re not doing names & numbers, just names. Also, we’re not assigning seats, just tables.
IMHO I think that naming tables after places that mean something to you is awesome, and shows more of who you are as a couple. Let us know what you decide!

We named our tables after Boulevards in Los Angeles so we have Lincoln, Wilshire, Hollywood, Sunset, Sepulveda, etc.

I haven’t made them yet, but our table numbers are going to be named after airports … my FI has his private pilot’s license and we take flying trips quite often. So each table will have the name of an airport code where we’ve flown together (ie, AVX = Catalina) and a picture of us at the location and the location name on the back. I’ll use the "code" on the escort cards as well (we are having a small wedding, so it won’t be that hard for guests to locate their table that way).
I think naming your tables after ND locations is a super cute idea – very meaningful!
