I like it…do you have any ideas of ones you would want to use?  Then maybe we can help come up with more suggestions.  The only thing is you would just want to make sure they weren’t too long.

I like the idea but I think it could be a little confusing. It is much easier to see a big “1” or some kind of symbol from across the room than it is to read an entire phrase. Having said that, I think the confusion would be minimal, and worth it if it fits into your theme 🙂

Do it! But, I would have a sign to explain so your guests understand.

Basically, our sign said “Please find your name followed by your table name, the tables were named after the couples favorite landmarks in Italy”

Also, I would stick with just the song titles, and not include the artist’s names, IMO that would be too long/much for an escort card.

what a cute idea! Go for it! Just have a sign at the name tag table explaining about everything. Then no one ought to be confused. 🙂

We are doing something similar…taking pictures of places around nyc..and having the picture designate the table…then going to have a picture frame on each table with that pic in it!  

I love ideas that aren’t regular table numbers!

I was Maid/Matron of Honor at a wedding that did this.

All of the tables were named after Beetles songs.  Each table had a framed piece of paper with that song and then your name was put on a place card of where you got to sit.

It was different but nice.

I went to a wedding where the table #’s were all classic rock bands- I sat at the ZZ top table.  It was super cute the way that they did it.  I have a picture of my sister in law holding up the  ZZ top “legs” picture.

I’ve seen it a wedding and I loved it.  At this wedding they put the number still, and below the number was the title of the song.

I am using the theme of Old Love Songs for my wedding. ” I will use lyrics of old love song standards throughout the wedding. I am doing an old hollywood supper club look with Ivory linens,  and touches of black, with light pales pink and white roses and hydrages. here are my table names so far:

It Had to You

At Last

My One And Only Love

My Funny Valentine

Our Love is Here to Stay

The Very Thought Of You


The Best Is Yet To Come

The Way You Look Tonight

Let’s Fall In Love

I Can’t Give You Anything But Love

In The Mood

Just In Time

All of Me

Let’s Fall In Love

The Best Is Yet To Come

We are doing a sit down and (I am a singer with singer friends) so in between courses my talented friends are gifting to sing a standard love song to add a personal touch ( this is a great way to get free entertainment too – they will play guitar or the DJ will play a karaoke track). I have thought of adding on the escort card the word “Table” so it is clear.

    Table “It had to you”

or Table 1 “It had to be you”

Makes it clear that this is a name of a table. Thinking of taking a black wine bottle with the old sheet music with the title wrapped or framing part of the sheet music & title in a frame. you can copy the sheet music from a library  and later copy to good thick ivory paper. I have also thought of tapping the songs like a table runner for the middle of the table. Best of Luck!

I have also seen it done where make copies of the sheet music to placemat size of the first page of the song that has the title and use it as placemats on top of your table clothes to add demension and layering   (Its a cheep  and easy DIY )
