Ooh… good thread! I haven’t made up my table names yet but I’m interested to see some. Our reception is at a local educational nature centre, so we’re naming the tables after animals and using the animal footprints as the pictures. I’ll be sure to post them once they are put together!

I’m slowly compiling the information for ours. We’re having famous swing dancers of the 30s through the start of the neoswing era (including Sylvia Sykes as she’s one of our favorite follows to watch/ be taught by of the modern era).

The idea is to have two frames per table. One 8×10 and one 5×7. The frames mostly came from Christmas Tree Shoppes and are primarily white, green, and black and slightly distressed. A picture of the dancer will be in the 8×10 and a short biography will be in the 5×7.

@sfchick: We’re debating if we want to have modern pictures of them if we’ve met/had lessons with them (Jean Veloz, Norma Miller, Frankie). We’re also debating what picture to use of Sylvia, one from the 90s/80s when she was more Lindy and had hip long hair or a more recent one with Nick doing Bal? (we’ve had a mini lesson from her at Lindyfest when Kevin St. Laurent & Jo H. were stuck in traffic)

We went with table names as well and something that was totally *us*.  We met while playing a particular online game and decided that we’d wanted to incorporate that into our wedding a bit.  So our table names were the names of spaceships in the game that we play!  Here’s how they turned out:

Since our venue is ontop of a mountain, we decided to go with the names of local mountains (with a shot of us ontop of that mountain)

 

We decided to throw on a number as well as a name, so it wasn’t too difficult for guests to actually locate the table in the room!

We’re doing a vintage movie theater theme, so ours are framed copies of different old movie posters.

We are still throwing ideas around, but I’m planning to do different fish. Our wedding is “Under the sea”, in blue/orange, so I wanted to find fish in blue/orange/yellow colors and use their pictures and names instead of table numbers.

We are going with Name of local pubs/bars we would have spent time with the people at that table!local

 

For instance the “local” where I was in University was called “the horseshow house” so that where my uni frinds will be sitting,

 when I was in highschool we went to a place called the drum almost every weekend with my school friends and thats where they will be sitting!

…. the local pub in the tiny town where my mum grew up is called “the rocks of bawn” will be the name of the table where my mothers family will be sitting

 

etc etc! ๐Ÿ™‚
