I saw this idea on some wedding website or Pinterest (most likely) and thought it was really cute.
So instead of doing your table #’s in numerical order (1,2,3, etc.) you # the tables with #’s that have meaning or are significant and then put why. Here’s the list, so far:
2– C & C were separated by only 2 degrees of separation 4– Today- our wedding day 6– C & C differ in age by 6 years7– C & C have been together 7 years9– The combined age of C & C’s two cats11– C & C have travelled to 11 different cities together16– C & C were engaged on December, 16th17– C & C were engaged for 17 months23– C & C shared their first kiss on November, 23rd24– C & C were just friends for 24 days31– C & C met October 31st40– No. of wedding anniversaries celebrated by this role model relationship (photo of my parents)47– C & C will share 47 cousins63– No. of wedding anniversaries celebrated by this role model relationship (photo of his grandparents)66– # of mutual Facebook friends C & C share
Any other cute ideas?

We’re having an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding. Instead of numbers each table will be a character, i.e. “Alice”, “Mad Hatter”, “Queen of Hearts”, etc.!

I love those numbers! We were thinking about doing it but we didn’t have enough time.
I think what’s really important is that you end up with actual numbers so the tables can go in logical order. Otherwise all of your guests will end up walking around for 30 minutes trying to find their table.

This is my idea: have a double frame for table numbers (like with the hinge). On the left side put the table number followed by three dots (like 1… , 2…) and on the right side put something relevant to us (… perfect wedding; …. adopted kittens, … little words) and also put a fun thumbprint drawing on the right side descrbing the phrase. So if the phrase is (left side)6… (right side)…days in Bermuda! we would do a thumbprint picture of us laying on the beach from our trip to bermuda.
Now if only I were artisitc….

We did our ages. A picture of my husband at age the age of the table number on one side and the other side my photo at that age. Everyone loved them, they were fun to look at.

I’ve seen lots of things instead of numbers like types of trees (Four Weddings Show. haha!), city names, street names, etc.

We’re doing the same thing, with numbers like dates (“29 – Mr. Missmess proposed on December 29th”), important years (20xx – the year they met), addresses (1874 – The couple’s first apartment was located at 1874 Red St, etc etc), stuff like that. I thought it was a cute idea and showed my fiance, and he LOVED it, so it’s definitely happening now! Our table is going to be 15 – our wedding day :).
Worth noting that we’re definitely going to be putting together a table map of sorts, so that people can find their tables. Plus our wedding is going to be on the smaller side, so there won’t be that many tables/opportunities for guests to get lost.

We did our tables this way. People loved reading the stories. I did make the number range quite large…for some numbers we converted days into hours…just to get a ridiculous large number. 😉
Here is our seating chart with the random numbers.
I think ot ia a great idea and awesome way to personalize the wedding. Love your numbers.
