I just bought these letters online. I bought an entire alphabet set. I’m going to use them as the table "numbers" at the wedding, even though we don’t have 26 tables. They will go perfectly with my rustic, clam bake theme. I am also going to re-use them either for kids one day (which is why I bought the whole set) OR if we want to re-sell them, thats easy too. Anyone else using something other than a paper table number on their tables??

Those are cute! Are you going to use the letters in alphabetical order? Or to spell otu something, like "Family" in your pictures.

I think it’s a really cute idea! And you can reuse the letter afterwards!
I think we’re going to have our niece and nephews draw up something for each table w/numbers and have them sign it. So each table will be displaying their artwork. I think they’ll get a kick out of it.

We are actually using numbers, but of a very different kind. Each table will be numbered like "5,280" or "342" or "2,064" which mean something to us. For example, we live at altitude "5,280" have been together "342" days, and spent three years "2,064" miles apart. Make sense? These are just made up numbers, but you get the idea. So for example, one group will have to sit at Table # 658.
We’ll have little explanations of the numbers at the table that people can read…

So cute! I love the letters and it sounds like it will go nicely with your theme.
We are going to name our tables after airports that we’ve been to together … my fiance has his private pilot license and we fly together often. So each table will be named by the airport code and then have a corresponding picture and (small) explanation.

That is a great idea I never would have thought of that. Love that it is totally reusable.

Oh CKBell, I LOVE that idea. Airport codes are so cool. 🙂
These are all so cute and special!

I just saw online yesterday how a gal named the tables of all the locations important to them as a couple: location of first date, location of first kiss, first home, proposal site, etc and they used pictures with little captions underneath explaining the important location. I thought that was such a sweet idea!

What a great idea, using the alphabet. I wish I’d thought of that! Well, if my idea doesn’t work, maybe I can try that. Where did you get them?
I looked at a restaurant supply store for holders to put the table numbers on. Wow, that will sure add up and I would only be using them once! So, I thought of my own DIY holders. I bought tiny flower pots, painted them each white, and put blue sea glass inside as a weight, then I will put a long wire inside and have it go straight up to hold the number card. I think it might work…
I’m curious as to what others are doing, as far as table card holders??

@MoSnow – that is a great idea! I love that it’s unique and completely personalized. I may borrow it. 🙂
