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.
