    Does it fit with your theme, if you have one? Or is there a reason you suggested doing this but then hesitate?

    I think it’s fine. I like table names. I’m not doing them (I only have 4 tables!) but would put a fun spin on it for me, personally.

    I voted yes but meant to vote for the not really. go for it! opps!

    I really like this idea and think it will be really cute with your theme.

    How about Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Judy Garland, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall

    I love the idea of table names! What a perfect way to inject your theme or interests into your special day!

    I bought these table numbers off an etsy seller that prints the photos of the people that you were thinking about and with numbers. They are great and I can’t wait for everyone to see them at the reception. I just looked and didn’t see her on there but, I will be selling mine after my wedding May 30. I just think that you should do what ever fits you and your FH’s personalities!

    My only comment is that people are dumb. Usually table numbers are in order somehow so its easy for people to find their table. If you get into names, people will take a lot longer looking for Marilyn, or Doris or Frank!

     Just be boring and go with numbers.

    I’ve seen the name thing done before so it’s not tacky! I’m actually thinking of using street names from around our home town that people know or grew up on.

    I was recently at a wedding and she named her tables after her favourite books…I sat at Wuthering Heights to my great satisfaction! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also…I didn’t notice anyone unable to find their way to the Thorn Birds…so if you set it up well, people wont have a problem.

    I think you can name your tables whatever you want even if they don’t "go" with your theme. Our tables are named after Dharma stations in Lost and we’re not getting married on an island . It’s the only Lost thing we’re doing and I’m ok with it not "fitting" our "theme". My main issue is that the wedding represents US and Lost is a big part of us. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I LOVE your table names! They sound so classy! ๐Ÿ˜€

    That idea sounds like it would be really cute with your theme! Plus, I think table names are fun- something different than just plain numbers. If your FI’s grandparents are really the type to say something rude about something so little and unimportant as table numbers, you should probably do whatever you want and just plan to ignore them, regardless. It sounds like they may be that type of couple that you just can’t please- and it is your wedding, so you shouldn’t have to!

    It’s not tacky, but it would work out better at a smaller wedding since it will be easy for people to find their tables.  If you have a small wedding (like the bee with 4 tables) I think it is a great idea!

    I’m doing the same, me and my babe are very international we’ve been to about 7 countries together and we travel a lot individually and we are interracial.

     

    I am going to name the tables  after the countries we went to together and our favorite places we visited, it makes it more personal and a great conversation starter
