I have narrowed it down to 2 ideas. i don’t want to use numbers to name my tables. Our wedding is in Jamaica, and its small – probably 4 tables max. so my first idea is Jamaican cities:
Montego Bay, Ochos Rios, Negril, Kingston, Runaway Bay
My second idea is to make it more personal for FI and myself. we are huge movie buffs and are our combined faves are some major blockbusters, so i would use these:
The Matrix, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Twilight
please vote and/or give opinions!

I like the Jamaican cities. I’m just seeing maybe pictures or little symbols from each city, but I’m from Jamaica so I may be biased.:-)

For me it depends on your weddings general theme. If you’re really exploiting the whole Caribbean thing then definitely do cities. If you have some other theme (or an “everything about us” type wedding) then do movies.

Movies would be more personal because it’s more about the two of you, not just where your wedding is. However, since there’s only 4 tables I’d probably go with the cities. The movie titles might just seem like they came out of nowhere.

@babymilka74: well i am mostly having a beach themed wedding. but my reception is in 2 parts. we are having a formal dinner inside a banquet hall for 2 hours. there is not really any decor to make it beach themed. well except my cake topper and knife set. other than that, the decor i am using is more romantic (heart shaped candle holders and rose petals for centerpieces). and matching it to my wedding colors of red and purple.
the second part of the reception is a bonfire party on the beach. it will be more laid back and beachy, i assume. i also got little tiki torches to display along the bar, and personalized napkins with our name, wedding date, and a palm tree on them.
anything else i have bought, i have tried to keep it beach themed, like little sea shells for place card holders, a beach themed guest book and knife set, the welcome bags are all about Jamaica and things you need for the beach. and well the ceremony is on the beach!
anyway, so i guess i am saying i could go either way with the table names. add another touch of Jamaica, or add a personal touch of myself and FI. i can’t decide!

@MrsMaine: i am kind of leaning towards that right now. plus my friends know i am obsessed with Twilight and HP, so they would definitely laugh if they saw that – but i am not sure if that is what i want! then again, a little humor could also be a nice touch. ahhh! why is every single decision so agonizing!

I love the idea of using the Jamica cities! There would be so many cool ideas/options for how you could do this.
