We’re naming the tables after neighborhoods in Philadelphia…and they will be printed on an old-school map of the city.

I’m going to use places from NY and NC – I’m from NYC and FI is from NC so I thought that would be nice for everybody since we’re getting married in MD and most guests are traveling to attend.

I’m from San Diego but now live in Louisiana with my FI where he is from.  We’ve decided to name all our tables with all the places we’ve been together and try and place guests associated with those trips/living places.  AHAH at least that’s the masterplan, I heard seating arrangements are a nightmare to configure so we may X the idea of placing guests in associated named tables. 🙂

Similar to phillybride61513, we’re doing PA neighborhoods we’ve lived in (both separately and together), printed on maps.

At my at home reception we did table names of places we have travelled with pictures of us there since it fit our travel theme (destination wedding). And then our escort cards were luggage tags. Here’s a picture of our frames

We had tables named after (mostly my) favourite authors.  One side of card had the name of the author, with a quote from one of their novels, relating to love or marriage, and the other side of the card explained why that author was special to us.

I had a subtle beer-themed wedding so our table names were names of breweries we visited together. I did both names and numbers since I figured most people would remember numbers more easily.

We decorated with pics of us at each brewery, facts about the brewery and our visit there, coasters & beer swag (donated by many of the breweries) and our centerpieces had floral hops (a key ingredient for beer making).

We’re doing Lake names, FH loves fishing and spends a lot of his time on the lake, so this is our way of including him in the wedding stuff and letting his personality shine through too, as well as a cake topper of him fishing and me reading a book on our boat! we are getting look alikes from etsy! cant wait to order those suckers! WOO HOO..sorry i get a little excited over the weirdest things sometimes


EDIT: the cake topper is a surprise since the groomscake is too expensive of an option for us! I hope he likes it

We’re scuba divers, and he’s a pretty good underwater photographer, so the tables will be ocean creatures, with pictures he or I actually took…Shark, Octopus, Starfish, Stingray…….

I love when couples put personality into their table numbers, I’d pick the books and maybe you could get a copy of the book displayed on the table.

We did flower names… It helps the guests if you put set it up alphabetically if its not a “neighborhood/mapable” name
