I’ve been thinking about table numbers a lot lately. I have a tight budget, but I would like to do something "creative" than the same table numbers you see at every wedding. My Fi and I met in Italy and have been long distance relationship since he is in the Navy on the east coast. I would love to incorporate any of this into the table numbers. I’m not so creative, so I would love any help. What have you done that’s outside the box for table numbers?

Why don’t you have table numbers with pictures of majors monuments in Italy like the Tower of Pisa or the Roman Colosseum? You can probably get pics off google and have them printed, cut out, and put on each table.
And as wedding favors, you could supply everyone with bottles of olive oil http://www.oliveoilsource.com/wedding_favor.htm

A idea I really like is
paper o cardboard wrapped around a wine bottle simulatting a man´s shirt sleeve, with cufflinks and everything! Great for a wedding theme with some black/tuxedo style.
I´m having a chocolate theme so maybe I will layout some giant chocolate numbers like these
I´m only having about 8 tables so no double digits!

Get pictures of all the famous monuments in Italy like the Tower of Pisa and The Colluseum and use them as table numbers. You can also place olive oil bottles as wedding favors.
If you don’t have money, use fruit as centerpieces like grapes and pears. You can have bruscetta as appetizers with red wine and cheese. Wine doesn’t have to be expensive. You can use two buck chuck and cheese is inexpensive if you get it at Costco.

We are also a long distance couple who has spent a lot of time on planes & in airports. Our table names are all the airport codes we’ve used to get to see one another (eg. SEA: Gate 1, LAX: Gate 2, YVR: Gate 3 so guests can find their way around easier). The back of our table "codes" are going to have quick facts about that city & why it is special to us. Each guest is going to find their table with a paper airplane seating card.
I would suggest taking the names of Italian cities or special places in Italy you visited. I went to one wedding where he was Italian & she was German. 1/2 the tables were German cities, the other were Italian. I love creative table names instead of numbers 🙂
