    I think it is a great idea.  We actually were going to do something similar but then I had the idea to use Swahili words (my fiance is Kenyan) that are about weddings, love, etc.  to incorporate a little of his culture.  Should be interesting for my very american family to try and pronounce! 🙂 By The Way… I got chills with the story of how you met.  My Fiance and I met the way everyone does…online!! (ha!) I say go for it!

    I was going to do table names but read somewhere that it might be difficult for guests to read from across the room, causing people to be wandering from table to table looking for their table name. Because of this I decided to  stick to numbers, but I like your idea and as a guest I wouldnt think it was pretentious. However, I would take into consideration the size of the room where your reception will be held.

    This is a great idea. I am sure that your guests will know that you have both travelled, so they will hardly consider it bragging or pretensious.

    Besides, it has been done before.

    I did this, with a little difference. I used the names of places that had significance to us. The restaurant we had our first date at, Darling Husband proposed in Grand Central Station one was named after that. We were in some of the pics and not in some of the pics

    I love the idea!  My hubby and I were considering that, but we decided to go another route just before I started making them.  Honestly even if people are wandering to see where they are sitting, I think they’ll enjoy it as they’ll probably pause to look at the associated pictures!

    I think it’s really sweet. I don’t think it’s bragging. I think it shows the progression of your relationship/love. Very sweet and personal.

    We’re doing something like that: We got engaged on a trip to Europe last summer, so our tables are named after places we visited while there.  In fact, the whole weding is travel themed.  The guestbook is a collection of postcards from places we have traveled together; guests can choose and write on…

    My plan for our table numbers is sports related!  We both love the Red Sox and Fi loves the Bruins.  We are going to do pictures of us in sports Jerseys and next to that do the numbers in the design of the jerseys (red sox looking numbers and bruins looking numbers)
