I used these napkin ring/place card holder thingies from Ikea, and they worked out perfectly: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20059607   The table number card just slots into the slit at the top, and it holds it at a slight angle.

If you google placecard holders, you should come up with lots of options.

I just did it myself. For one sign, I used a 20 gauge wire and make my own holder. For most, I used champagne wine corks, each with a slit cut in it. That way,  I won’t feel bad if they were discarded after the wedding.

I am having an Ohio State University/Buckeye themed table names.  I was going to buy cheap place card holders for each table and have a short vase filled with buckeye nuts with the place card holder sitting in the middle of them.  I haven’t put together a sample yet, so I’m not sure how well it will work.

If you are looking for standard number holders, ask your venue if they have them available (most will let you use them free of charge).  Otherwise can you print it on heavy cardstock and make a table tent out of it?

I have kinda thought about this. I met with my caterer today and they were going to charge me for table numbers…..so I was thinking some heavy wire with an alligator clip at the top, the bottom weight portion is what I am having difficulty with. Let us know what you decide on!

Just an idea here, since you said that the tables will be named after parks.  Are the pictures of you two at the actual parks?  It might be neat to use something natural- a small log, piece of wood, pine cone, etc. as the picture holder.   This would be great if your wedding has a woodsy/natural/country theme- if you’re doing a fancy hotel ballroom wedding it might not fit as well.  Happy planning!!

Is it just me or does anyone else find it ridiculous that a venue would charge you for table numbers?  Most venues/caterers own them and they are nothing more than white heavy paper with a black number on it.  At my job if someone needs table numbers we give it to them.  It takes like 2 minutes to put them on tables.
