Could you name each table after a location of a memorable date?

Have any hobbies that have different locations?

Pick 3 or so qualities about the other person that you love?

Some ideas.

I’m getting married tomorrow in a vintage movie theatre so I named my tables after old horror movies since Halloween is Sunday. I printed the movie posters and put them in frames. Who doesn’t want to sit at a table named “The Brain Eaters?” lol

What about places that are special to you, and then you could put a photo and a blurb about why it’s important to you. So like “Lake Placid” with a photo of the lake, or of you two at that place, and on the back or the bottom “Mr & Mrstobeeisme met in February 2008 at a Starbucks in Lake Placid when Mr mistakenly took Mrs latte rather than his coffee.”

Could you, to fill up the next two tables, have the wedding photos of each of your parents (or just photos of them?) That way the adults can learn about the other adults?

We did cities that we visited since we’ve been a couple… We go on holiday quite a lot so managed to come up with them quite easily!

What about something to do with your honeymoon as people don’t usually know much about what your planning to do. My friend went on a cruise so she named them after each island they would be visiting. When I was thinking about a safari we where going to name them after the animals. Another friend I had named them after different cocktails. We’re now getting married on bonfire night so we are going to name them after different fireworks. Hope this helps. xx

We are just using pictures.  One table will be say the Bob Hope table, and the escort card will have their name and a picture of Bob Hope.  Maybe you can use some pictures that mean something to you.

What, is your centrepiece? You could then decide the name # based on that

We were *going* to do the airport codes of all the cities that we love (we travel a lot) but we’re doing banquet tables, so no need anymore. I don’t htink that table names have to be themed, though. Why can’t you do all your childrens’ names plus significant cities or hobbies? It’s rare that people look at ALL the tables together–mostly they’re just concerned with THEIR table; thus, even if you have a theme, not everyone will notice it.

You can also do a print out card, put it on a stand and write out below what the signficance of the name is. You can write the significance on the inside of people’s escort cards. Or–and I know this is really weird-sounding, but I’ve been to a wedding in which the bride printed up a list of funny “facts” about her and her husband’s relationship history and posted them…in the bathroom stalls. Which was SO hilarious and (I’m kind of embarassed to admit this) actually fun to read while you were in there. And they were a conversation piece.

My hubby and I chose to name the tables after space ships in the game we met while playing.  I’m sure that some people saw some of the names and figured they were something else, but it worked for us.  We had originally thought of naming the tables after places that we’d been to on our dates or important places in our histories (birth cities, stuff like that).  I still like that idea, but the spaceships were a bit more ‘US’!

Do you 2 like to play games?  See movies?  Have a favorite hobby that you do together often?

I love the idea of using your kids/furbabies! Why don’t you just put a picture of you and your fi for the last two pictures to complete the family?

We used pictures of parents, grandparents, great grandparents, etc. wedding pictures.
