I think they’re pretty awesome, actually. A little out of place, but the rad factor makes it okay imo.

How come table 1 gets a mushroom and table 5 doesn’t? I’d be mad if my table didn’t get a shroom!

I think it’s awesome.. I’m also a big Mario/Nintendo nut πŸ˜‰ I like how in the first pic, you have the number with the mushroom; would you consider having a different (or even a choice of three or something) icon for each table, so it makes a little more sense to people who aren’t as Mario-incilned? You could do the mushroom, the star, the flower, etc. Just a thought! Point is: I think it’s cool :))

I love the 1 with the mushroom.  But without the mushroom or other mario type character, I’d sort of think the 5 was just oddly pixelated.  Even after alllll those hours of mario game play, I’m not sure I’d see it.

I have to say that although it doesn’t fit your theme entirely, I do think you did the right thing by giving in and letting your FH have a part in the decor.  In the end, they’re just table numbers.  I think that although some may not “get it”, it’s about you and him. 

Also, just my 2 cents, I think you should put the mushroom on all the numbers, the color works, and mushrooms would “technically” fit with  fall theme!  Other options could be to do other Mario items, like the flower, the mushroom, the leaf (from Mario 3), a shell.  You could even go a little further and do the various Mario’s, and some of the bad guys like the Gombas.  LOL, I’m a little partial to the theme since Mr. M and I are having a Mario themed cake πŸ™‚  Good luck!!!

As I was writing this, another small thought popped into my mind, you mentioned about that he really hasn’t had much input into the wedding thus far.  What if you surprised him with a small tv set up in a corner away from the majority of the reception area w/ a wii and Mario games?  It could be a great photo op. and it would also give kids, (and groomsmen) something to do during “down time”.

Sure, it’s definitely not fall-themed, but it’s pretty adorable that he came up with that on his own. I think you’ll look back on it in years to come and think it’s cute because it’s a reminder of his personality and something he is really into. Go for it! If I saw it at a wedding, I would think it was really cute.

I like it. I agree with the PP who said to have a different icon or character for each table. Our tables are named for places/characters in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. So I guess the nerdiness appeals to me. πŸ™‚

I love the icon + table number. This made my inner geek extremely happy. And as a guest, this would be a really awesome thing that would seem like a very personal touch by the couple.

 

But then, I’m trying to figure out how to incorporate something related to Doctor Who into our vintage train station wedding. Perhaps bow ties are in order.

I honestly don’t remember any table numbers of weddings I have been to. I think they are cool!
