For a while I have been considering what I think is a kind of unique idea. Instead of table numbers, I wanted to have each table named after a place FH and I have travelled to. On each table I would have a short blurb about our trip there and a pic or 2 of us in said place. I’m guessing I’ll have 14-15 tables, and our sweetheart table (which would be our honeymoon destination).
I’m pretty sure we have travelled to enough places (even if some of them are kind of local) to fill all the tables. We have taken a few international trips and plenty around the US.
Has anyone seen anything or done anything like this? If so, did you like how it was done, or do you have suggestions different that what I have above?

I love this idea. I like this inspiration photo:

This is a neat idea and different, I have couples use..destinations, favorite wine, names related to love, famous couples, cities close to the area they grew up, street names, etc…

I think that’s a great idea–if you don’t have enough photos in those places, my friend used postcards from each location at her wedding.

The only thing I would suggest is that you either also assign a number… or that you place the named tables in alphabetical order. If there isn’t some kind of easy to understand order it takes people FOREVER to find their table and it just gets a little messy. Just a thought : )

I went to a wedding where fictional place names were used. Places from the bride’s favourite books.

we are using the names of locations on our college campus, since we are both alumni of the same college =)

I did this for my wedding! Each table was a place at Penn State (the college we both attended and met while studying there).
We did 3-sided 5×7 picture lanterns and had one side the table name, one a picture of the location, and one side a description of why it was important to us. Everyone loved them!
We also included the table number as well- mostly for our older guests.

We’re doing our favourite TV shows (just because we spend way too much time watching TV).

Can everyone else see my photos? They show up when I look at it. I also posted them in the DIY section http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/table-numbers-19
As for people finding the tables, I also plan on having a map of where the tables are located by the escort cards so that the tables can be easily found.

We are doing our favorite charities. We are also making donations to each in honor of our wedding day, but not as favors or anything.
We thought it was a good way to incorporate a feeling of charity in the day (it was really important to us to “pay forward” the blessings of the day), let people know a little more about us as a couple and our interests, and raise awareness about some of our favorites. We have quick write ups on the back about what the organization does and why we like them. We did make sure to stay away from controversial ones, though.
